Easy Guide On How To Use This Forum.

Q. Why do i have to join and does it cost anything and will I get loads of spam emails ?
A. You have to join to be able to post a message or a reply, the reason for this is to be able to control what is going on, also it is easier to know who you are rather than have loads of people replying with the name guest.

No, it costs you nothing to join now or in the future this site is Free with no downloads, no spyware and no adware. Your email address is safe and will not be passed on to any other companies or 3rd partys or Members, you will receive no emails from this site unless you have clicked the box in your profile wishing to be notified of replies to your post.

Q. I'm lost and can't find my way around?
A. The easiest way I find to find your way around is to always go back to the main page you can do this by clicking the Royal Marines Bands Chat Forum Index link it is at the top of the page, or just click the Home button at the top of the page.

Each room has threads each thread has posts. You have to remember that this is not a chatroom but a forum so you have to refresh the pages yourself by pressing the refresh key or F5 key on your keyboard.

Q. I want to start talking how do I do this?
A. If you wanted to talk about anything you would go to the coffee boat then click on a link you want to read then post a reply or just click new topic and start a new one.

Q. How do I reply to a post or start a new topic?
A. There is a new topic button and a reply button in each thread just click on it.

Q. How do I know if I have post to read?
A. At the front of all threads is a light system which is explain at the bottom of the main page, simply if there is a Red Light in front of the room or thread it means there is post in there you havenít read. You can also click on the name under last post and this will take you to the last post posted in that thread or room.
You can also click on the View posts since last visit link in the top panel of the main page.

Q. I want to talk to someone but donít want anyone else to see it
A. Send them a PM (Private Message) you can do this by clicking on the you have no new message link or by clicking on the persons name and then the PM link, To use PM just type in their name (or do a search for it) and write them your message then submit. Please remember to delete all inbox and sent messages regularly as this can slow things down, Do not delete your OUTBOX as messages sit in there until the person has read them then they will be moved to your sentbox, if you delete them they will not get them.

Q. Why cant I edit my post or delete it?
A. Only the Mods and Admin are allowed to do this for you, just PM or speak to one of them

Q. Are we allowed to leave links on here?
A. Yes of course you can but please remember that this is a family forum as well so all links should reflect that. Any link deemed to be unsuitable will be deleted (E.G sex links virus links) by the Admin or Mods. The simple rule is: would you mind your 14 year old child to see the link you post?

Q. Can i post pictures on here if so how?
A. Yes you can post pictures, all you need is an uploader/host like photobucket Click Here It is 100% free to join and use and does not have a trail period, upload your photo there then go to your album and copy and paste the bottom line the IMG line making sure you have the whole line.

Q. How can I tell who is a Admin/Mod and how do I contact them?
A. At the bottom of the main page are the names of the people who are on line if they are White they are Members, Orange are admin, green are Mods. Also at the bottom of each thread it gives the names of the Mods. If you need to contact one of the Admin or Mods click on their name under the threads and leave them a pm.

Q. I'm being harassed or someoneís post is hurtful what can I do?
A. As we are all mainly adults on here some posts maybe not to your liking, speak to Admin about your concern. Harassment is allowed on here again speak to the Admin about this; it would be better to PM them and say which room the thread is in and by whom.

Q. How can I tell who is on line and where they are?
A. On the main page at the bottom you will see who is on line if you click on the who is on line link it will show you which room they are in.

Q. How do I change my picture or details?
A. Goto the PROFILE link on top of the page you can change everything there, except for your username you will have to ask the Admin to do that for you.

Q. If I cant find an answer to my question in here what should I do
A. Speak to any Mod or Admin or any Member they might just be able to help.

Q. Is this site monitored 24/7 by the, Mods, Admin
A. No of course not but someone is often lurking till the early hours.

If your question is not answered up above please look at the FAQ page where everything is covered in graeter detail. There is a link at the top left of the pages

This is an 'instant' chat facility that is like a AIM or MSM Messenger function so chat can take place. It is a lot quicker than 'posting'...
Please ignore the 'locked' icon on the left hand side of the chatbox, it just prevents people from creating topics within the chatbox area where the actual chatbox resides.
