PostHow to Use the Forum

While the forum is pretty basic if you have used something like this in the past, it can be a little confusing for first time forum users. Here are some explanations of the most important aspects.

If you can't find an answer to your question here or under the FAQ tab please email Arts Obispo at

Starting a New Conversation
1) Go to one of the already established categories that your conversation will fall under (If there is no category that works please email us and explain what you were hoping to post)
2) Click the "New Topic" button on the left of your screen
3) Give your new conversation/question a title in the title bar
4) Enter the text you desire in the text or "Message Body" box
5) If you would like to preview what your post will look like, click the "preview" button below the text box
6) Once you are ready to post your new conversation click the "send" button
7) Always remember that you can change what you posted later by opening your post and clicking the "Edit" button on the right of your screen
8 ) I order for any changes you made to take effect you must click the "send" button when you are finished

Commenting on an Existing Conversation/Image

Uploading an Image From Your Computer

4) Click the "Browse" button in the little window that pops up
5) Find the image that you want to upload and click the "Open" button
