Old guy w new-fangled stuff
My Mom wouldn't even try to learn how to operate a VCR. I am willing to try 'new', but am afraid when I do, as I usually mess up or break something. Even just this page has taken over half an hour as I am not sure what is wanted here.
Just looked below and saw headings: Trackback, Tags, Thread, Subscription, Post a Poll. WHAT? I know I am behind, so where can I get clued-in as to what these terms want or expect of me. Where can I get some explanations? My 37 year old son tries to explain things to me (long-distance) and he knows to keep it simple, expecially w/o pictures.
I have an iPad and iphone and know I am utilizing probably less than 1% of their capability.

If you have a question, it's probably been answered before, and the search function is useful for finding existing answers.
If you can't find answers with search, dive in and create a thread.
Don't worry about any of the stuff you don't understand right off. You don't have to use any features you're not familiar with.
Trackback is for people who want to link.
Tags are categories that you can attach to threads.
Subscription is whatever you want to subscribe to, as in threads you want to revisit and be updated on.
Post a Poll is so people can create polls with threads.
