|How do I ask a question or start a discussion?|
|Upon first glance, the forum can look intimidating. There are tons of subforum and links, and sometimes it can seem difficult to figure out where to begin.
That's normal. Most people familiarize themselves with the forum by browsing around. Eventually, though, you'll probably want to ask a question or start a discussion (or participate in a discussion already in progress). Doing so is pretty straightforward.
[NOTE: Only Full Members can post questions and replies. To become a Full Member, you must first own Precision Nutrition.]
The first step is to figure out the best place to ask your question or start your discussion. The forum is organized into a number of "subforums", each dedicated to a specific topic. Some are about products we've created, like Precision Nutrition and Gourmet Nutrition, while others are about common goals our members are pursuing, like fat loss or sport performance. You can view the whole list on the Precision Nutrition Forum Home Page.
Once you've determined the forum most closely related to your question or discussion, just click on that link. If you can't decide, and especially if you're new to the forums, click on the forum called "New To This Lifestyle? You're Not Alone!" There you can ask any question you like, and someone will help you out either by answering or pointing your in the right direction.
After clicking on the forum link, you'll see the New Thread button () at the top and bottom of each page. Clicking that will bring you to a new page where you can type out your question or message.
[Definition: A Thread is just forum jargon for "discussion" or "topic". Each thread can have many messages in it. These messages are called posts or replies.]
So every time you want to ask a new question or start a new discussion, you'll start a new thread in the appropriate forum. Once you've typed out your question or message and submitted it, it will appear in that forum immediately. Other members will then be able to reply to it, and you too will be able to post your own replies and follow-ups.
