Welcome to bbs_thingie, a computer conferencing system. I love cheat sheets. Don't you? ("Just get on with it!") OK, OK, sheesh.
It's pretty easy. First log in. Then cycle these steps:
When you realize that you have better things to do, click "LogOut".
There are two ways to use "bbs_thingie": logged in or "just browsing". You don't need a Username to browse the conferences, but you do need a Username to be able to create items or leave messages.
But don't dispair! You can create your own Username very easily! You won't be asked for any personal information (no e-mail, no demographic data, no marketing profiles). When you create a Username, choose a single word as your "Username"; many people use the first part of their normal e-mail address (i.e. the part before the "@"), other people just make something up. So long as you keep your password secret, nobody else can use your username.
Guidelines: a few informal rules - don't be picky with spelling or grammer, either with your own messages or with others'. Try to go easy on personal attacks (flames). A certain amount coarse language and sexual content is natural among adults, but don't get carried away. This isn't a porn site. On the other hand, if you're easily offended, then maybe this isn't the place for you.
