Posting and Editing
#1
Getting around the site is a breeze once you understand the basic layout of the MyBB forum system. One of the basic steps to becoming acquainted with the site is to learn how to post threads and replies and how to edit them if you make a mistake. In this tutorial

Flowers and Hatred
by Mark

Rosis are red,
violets are blue,
I hate poems
that don't rhyme.

 

The first step is to decide which forum to post it in. Leanne has written a nice tutorial for choosing which forum best suits your needs: Where should I post my poem

For the purposes of this tutorial we will post in the 'Newly Registered Forum' forum:

İmage

 

Click on the name of a forum to see it's contents and post a new thread.

İmage

 

Click the 'New Thread' button then you will see the New Thread screen with a text editor. For a full description of all the functions, refer to this tutorial: Spicing Up Your Posts



 

When you're ready to post the poem, just click the 'Post Thread' button. And now the post will be displayed:




 

After the post is made, to edit we have two options: Quick Edit and Full Edit.



 

Quick Edit displays an editing pane right in the post and allows you to make small edits like these quickly. Full Edit takes you back to the full editor.




 

Just correct the error or make any adjustments and then click the 'Save Changes' button.

I appreciate the run-through. However, I am on the Novice Poetry Forum, and I can't find the "New Thread" button anywhere. It is not in the same place as the button in the picture you posted.

Thank you.

Hi and welcome. Please read your welcome letter, it explains that you can't post your own work until you're a full member and that doesn't happen until your first three critiques are moderated and approved. Then the New Thread button will appear.

"like magic" - ella, we like to say that the New Thread button will appear "like magic".
Because that is what it is.

Well, I see oxfordgirl joined up a while ago, her welcome letter may have been before moderated first posts was implemented. You've got one, OG, 2 more critiques in the workshops and you're in, like magic, yanno. Smile

Here's the most recent, I think, welcome letter:

Before posting:

Please read the forum rules and other help documents that can be found

by clicking on the following url:

http://www.pigpenpoetry.com/misc.php?action=help

Due to fly tipping (leaving lots of poetry) without giving feedback
elsewhere on the site, we expect poets new and old to attempt to give reasonable feedback on other people's work before posting their own for workshopping (we work on a give and take system).

New members posts will be moderated for a short while. You have to first leave three pieces of reasonable feedback on other people's poems before you can post your own work in the poetry forums

We look forward to workshopping with you.

P.S.  when we say reasonable, we don't mean one line saying wow, this is great. or one line of feedback done simply to get round this rule.

Poetry Forum
http://www.pigpenpoetry.com
And here it is in the Forum Rules:
Quote:6. For newly registered members; you must first leave acceptable feedback on other people's poems before you will be allowed to post your own poetry. All your posts will be moderated during this probation period. Once you are able to leave 3 pieces of acceptable feedback, then you will be granted wider access to start your own threads and present your work in the the poetry forums for critique.

Your posts have not been approved yet.  When all 3 have been approved . . . like magic.

Wow, it's pretty lazy when you can't even be bothered posting your own complaint about something that could have been fixed if you'd been bothered to read your welcome letter... new level, dude.
It could be worse

Hi I posted my first critique, and it didn't appear in the thread, are the new critiques being reviewed by the moderator too?

Hi, Linda, yes, it's explained in your welcome letter and half a dozen posts up on this thread, or you can take a look here.
