    Here's a short list of how to's for fellow SDN members! If you have any additional questions, or think something should be added please feel free to add to this thread.

    How to post a new thread:
    Once registered, any member can post a new thread. Go to the forum that you wish to post in, then look for the "Post New Thread" button at the right upper corner of the thread list. Here's an example:

    How to change your signature:

    How to place users on ignore:
    Although SDN encourages open discussion and sharing of ideas, sometimes there are members that you just don't want to interact with anymore. You may place them on ignore: click here.

    How to become a donor:
    Is SDN helping you achieve your goals? Consider donating to support the non-profit mission of SDN. Although there are no requirements to donate, benefits include removal of advertising which can speed-up your browsing experience (waiting for Google Ads to load can take a bit of time). To donate or find out more information, click here.

    Why are there some posting restrictions on new members?
    Unfortunately a few individuals spam or otherwise abuse their membership privileges. Therefore, new members are started in a probationary status to ensure they understand how to be a productive fellow member. This improves the overall forum experience for all members.

    For some reason I am not seeing the "post new thread" button when I go to the forums tab. What's going on? :(
