Default Pllease help me. Road map needed.


I'm a new member. When I try to find my way around the site I am lost right away. I have a piece in fiction, the bad god, and it took forever to find it so I could read comments. And it was just luck. The search doesn't seem to function for finding anything.

Do you have a report on how the site is organized? I need a road map!

On another writer site I could click on my ID and get a list of everything I posted and go there to see if there was a response. Can I do that here? If I make a comment to a piece of writing, I can never find it again to see if there was a reply. How can a person have a conversation this way?

If it's me, what am I doing wrong? Please advise.

It's strange that I'm writing this since I may not be able to find it again to see if you have any advice for me.

Have a nice writing day.

Or click on Quick Links and Subscribed Threads; that should take you to everything you've posted in.

My, this road is paved nicely. I wonder where it leads to.

Perhaps if you try a new method of communication, such as private message, then your sage advice might be read.

I laughed out loud at your comments.
Yes, we have mucho beans.
No, I haven't solved the problems and I'm still trying to find out how to get around on this site. Why don't the powers here put out a tutorial? How many new members are throwing up their hands and yelling 'no comprenddie!' (sp) and leaving in a cloud of dust on a Pinto pony?

And yet another challenge to simply have a conversation and review responses. Thanks a lot. Another rock to push up the hill!

I keep track of conversations by going directly to 'User CP' on the top left of the page when I first log on. This takes me to all threads I've responded to.
