Registering: Once you have entered the required information, check your email for our verification email. If it is not in your inbox, check your spam folder. Follow directions within the email to complete your registration.

Choose your words with the search feature in mind - this is how people will find your posting. This is a busy bulletin board and items are on the first page for a limited time but people looking for your topic or item for sale will use the search term box to find you.

Click on "New Topic" to the left of the search box.

You will need to fill in the subject line and a message. You also need to provide a way for people to reach you, either by email or phone. Within a post, you can contact someone by clicking on the Contact talk bubble icon and then clicking on the mail envelope icon to send an email to someone. You must be signed in for this feature to work.

Click on Preview if you want to take a look at your message first.

Click on Submit at the bottom of the page to post your message from either the new topic page or the Preview page.

To Edit:
You can edit or delete your own post but not those of others.
