USING THE FORUMS:

You can create a new Topic or post (i.e. Reply) to an existing Topic in any of these Forums and Sub-forums. First look at all the Forums and Sub-forums and decide which forum seems like the place where your Topic would be found or would be created. Then click on the Forum or Sub-forum so you can view the existing Topics within that Forum or Sub-forum.

If you DO see your Topic listed in the active topics:
Click on the topic to view it and then click on "Reply" to add your comments or query to the discussion. You can click on the "Preview" button at any time to see a preview of what your post will look like. Then click on the "Submit" button to post your comments or questions to the topic.

If you DON'T see your Topic listed in the active topics:
Click on the "NewTopic" button and fill in the Subject line with a short title for the Topic. Then type in as much information as you can about the query, comments or whatever you want to say about the Topic. The more information you put in the more likely it will be that the researchers on the Internet will be able to find your Topic and reply. You can click on the "Preview" button at any time to see a preview of what your post will look like. Then click on the "Submit" button to post your new Topic.
If the idea of creating a new topic seems too difficult or complicated please send a private message or an email to the forumadmin member with as much information as you know about your suggestion and we will create a new topic for you.

IT IS NOT A GOOD IDEA TO PLACE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IN ANY POST ON THE BLACKSEAGR.ORG FORUMS! This discussion forum has a secure email facility where other members can send you private messages or an email. In both cases your identity/email will be hidden until you decide to reveal it. The Blackseagr.org website does not make your emails available to anyone. We only keep your email so members can contact you via this anonymous email service.
