How to become a member of a particular forum ( 13:53:15 FriApr 19 2002 )

Hi. Hope this isn't too stupid of a question, but after registering, how does one become a member of a specific forum so that they will appear on the member list (and thereby send and receive PMs)? Someone on my board asked, and I'm not 100% sure how to do that.

BTW, I just wanted to say what an awesome forum host Best Boards is!! I came over from another host (dare I say it -- Hotboards), when my board got hosed up after reverting to a free board. I had no idea you could get such a nice message board with so many terrific features for free (our bandwidth usage will be pretty low) -- and I am amazed at how quickly you guys answer questions! I'm in forum administrator's heaven!:loveya:

Thanks so much,
Janie G.

The user is added to your memberlist on their first post on your board. :smile:

Oh, but PMs are global, so they don't have to be on your memberlist to send/recieve PMs. :smile:

PMs and member list ( 14:15:13 FriApr 19 2002 )

But if you're required to use a member name for PMs, how else would you know the username unless they were members on your forum?

As long as they're registered on BbBoard, you can send them a PM. :smile: For example, I'm not a member on your board, but you can still send me a PM from your board, as it uses the global list of usernames, not your board-specific list. :smile: Like not having to re-register to post on different boards. :smile:
