Welcome to AFC!!
Please make yourself comfy
and jump right in.
Please allow me to point out a few things that you might find helpful...
At the bottom of every page, on the left hand side you will find "Acronyms and Terms used here"
. If you see a term or abbreviation you are not sure about, you can click that and it will help you find what you need to know.
To navigate AFC
, you can click "Forum
", (this is found at the top of the page, on the left hand side). When you click there you will be taken to a new page that will give you a list of all the different forums AFC has to offer. Click any forum topic and it'll take you there.
To see all the new chatter
that is coming in for all the forums, you can click "New Post
" (this is found at the top of the page, on the right hand side). When you click this a new page will open and it will show all the newest threads for the forums as they are submitted.
If ever you have trouble finding your own personal posts
(maybe you'd like to go back review that thread or see if anyone responded) you can click "User CP"
(this is found at the top of every page, left hand side), a box will scroll down, at the top of this box is "View My Posts".
Click this and a new window will open with a list of all your posts. Giving/Receiving "Thanks" or "Rep"
is a fun feature here at AFC. If you see a post that has inspired you, helped you, or given you a moment of pause
, you can click the "Thanks" button
(located at the bottom of each post; it's blue with a thumbs up picture) this will insert your username at the bottom of their post. This lets them know you appreciate their post. OR
If you would like, you can click the "Rep" button
(located at the bottom of each post; it's blue with a pencil/paper picture). When clicking this you're given the opportunity to leave a small comment, telling the poster what you appreeciate. They're both a way to show your appreciation, but you can only do one or the other..not both
So, when you see someone's username listed under your post..you'll know you've been "Thank'd" and your post is much appreciated.
If you have any questions, just holler. We're glad you're here.
