  • Do people know how to register & use forums?

    I was just thinking that a lot of people on the net don't know alot about computers and might not know how to use a forum.

    So I was thinking of writing a guide that shows people how to register and use my forums. Do you guys think that it could be a good idea or is everyone on the net a geek?

      I agree - I was planning on having a site-tour flash thingy for my site, but I never got round to it...

        Not really, most people know how to join, but don't know how to use most of the features in UserCP or the Calendar.

            If anybody does put one of these together let me know. I may be interested in buying something if its easy and clear.

                i admin and help with tech support on an audio forum and i can assure you we not only get people who don't know how to use the forum but have actually only started the internet for this very first time. sometimes i will get a PM asking me how to post. which makes it a fluke they figured out how to PM me

                so yes i think a guide is helpfull.

                  It's a great idea, but be careful not to patronise them.
