    Helpful Hints for Getting the Most Out of the Forums

    Hello,

    Here is a thread for everyone to read to learn more about getting the most out of the forums. I will post new items here which will be helpful in learning how to use the forums, search topics, find things, and much more. This thread will remain stuck to the top of the Introduce Yourself section of our site.

    Crochet Talk is divided into seven sub-forums. Each sub-forum is labeled by the general topic of posts:

    Introduce Yourself is where you will make a post to introduce yourself as well as greet new members.

    Main is where you will make posts about anything related to crochet, or knitting. It is also okay to create posts about yarn related crafting as well.

    Pictures is where you will make posts of crochet related items. If you have pictures of your home or other things you would like to share - please post these in the General Chat section of the forum.

    General Chit Chat is where you will make posts about day to day interests and chat about other family friendly things not related to crocheting, or knitting.

    Links and Resources is a great place to find lots of info about crocheting and knitting. Items posted here can be info about patterns, helpful tips, crochet/knit blogs, coupons for yarn related items, as well as other yarn hobby related info.

    Buy/Sell/Trade is where you can see what other yarn related items are available from members to buy, sell, or trade. If you are looking for something of this nature, feel free to make a post in this sub-forum.

    Pattern Requests is the sub-forum for making requests and helping others to find crochet and knitting patterns they are in need of.

    Sending Private Messages on Crochet Talk

    Did you know that you can send private messages to members here on Crochet Talk?

    If you would like to send a message to a member who has made a post, then you can click on their name within the thread they posted in:

    Name:  Clicking private message in post.jpg
Views: 364
Size:  21.6 KB

    Place your mouse over the person’s profile name and a box will come up with a variety of options. Click on the option that says Private Message.

    You can also see if the person who you want to send a message to is online on the home page. See below:

    If you would like, you can also search a member by accessing the member's list on our site. Click on the bar toward the top of the page which says Community, then select Member's List. There is also a search box which allows you to narrow your search located in the upper right hand side of the list.

    Note: Spamming members by private message is not allowed. If you are a member here on the forums and you receive private messages which ask for you to buy products and such, please contact the moderator as soon as possible.
