If you wish to receive an email notifying you that another post has been made on this thread, click the box ‘Notify me when a reply is posted’. This comes in handy if you’re waiting for a reply to your post. You’ll receive an email that will have the link for that topic that you can click on to take you to it
When posting, please keep in mind that this is a family orientated riding club and communication forum, so content and language should be acceptable for all members of our families. It’s ok to disagree, as long as you’re not disagreeable.
You also have the option to click on “View Active Topics” or “View New Posts” which will bring you to all the current topics across Canada, which you can browse through and read.
From the User Control Panel (UCP), you can customize your account by adding an avatar picture or a signature including pictures – Click on ‘Profile’, then ‘Edit Signature’ or ‘Edit Avatar’
You also have a choice of board styles which will change how the forum displays, by going to Board Preferences, then My Board Styles, select from the drop down list and click on submit. Go to the Board Index and try out the new style, then choose one that suits you.
If you have any questions, from the Board Index, there is a section entitled ‘Forum & Website Technical Support’ that may answer your question. You can ask your officers for help, or simply post the question under the Forum & Website Tech Questions section and the members or Board Administrator will answer them for you.
We were all new at this at one point, so browse around and ask for help if you need it. Don’t be afraid to check things out, nothing happens/changes until you click on ‘Submit’.
