               The list of Topics ready for discussion are listed in a panel which looks like the following
               Cilck on any of the links to open a topic to read

           6. For example, choosing the "52nd Mission" link opens the following panel

              Each area of discussion contains "Threads" which are specific topics, started by Board Members
              Opening the "Welcome ... " thread shows the following

              This is one Member's contribution to a Thread. It also shows a photo which anyone can attach.

           7. At the upper right of each panel are options for your response

                                                                                                                                                    You may reply and write your
                                                                                                                                                     comments as a continuation
                                                                                                                                                     of the thread's ideas

                                                                                                                                                     You may quote this member's
                                                                                                                                                      comments in your own response
                                                                                                                                                      if you wish to be very specific
                                                                                                                                                      about what you have to say

           8. When you select the Reply option, a panel opens for you to write your response.
                You also have the opportunity to attach a photo and format your text with Bold, Underline, Color, etc

                                                                                                                                                       Browse will allow you to find
                                                                                                                                                       a photo on your computer to
                                                                                                                                                       attach to your reply. Photos
                                                                                                                                                       must be smaller than 1MB,
                                                                                                                                                       but 200 - 300 KB shows very
                                                                                                                                                       well, and conserves bandwidth

                                                                                                                                                      Type your test here

           9. When you have finished typing and formatting your text, look at the bottom of the reply panel
                and use the Spell Check if you wish. You can Preeview your post to see how it looks, but images
                do not show with the preview. If you use preview, you must re-attach your images, so it's best to
                check your test and then attach images.

                When you are satisfied, press the "Post Reply" and your response is inserted into the thread

            10. If you have an idea for a new Thread, you may start one. Beginning at the Subject level, you will see the
                  "New Thread" option. For example, in the 52ns Mission Folder, click "52nd Mission

                  This opens the list of Subjects in the Folder. You may start your own Subject by using the "New Thread" option.

                  This opens a text panel just like the previous one, but when you post it to the Board, it creates a new Thread.

            "General Board" and the "Help & Advice for Using the Chat Board" Thread. Post your question and
