New members constantly ask me how to get started here on the site, so we put together a post that hopefully, spells it out:
Is there a tutorial or can someone offer advice on navigating the site? I am having trouble posting questions because of a lack of prior posts. Help meeee!!!
Jarred - No tutorial for posting . . . just read our forum rules and it spells it all out for you. In order to post in our Dealmaking or Marketplace sections, you need to first have x amount of posts. This is to ensure that those people who benefit by marketing or making deals from the site also first engage and give back to the community. I hope that helps.
thanks for the post
Not really mentioned in the tutorial, and aside from dong the items listed, I believe it is super important to stay active on the site and do so consistently. This will enhance your learning experience and your continued activity will aid in meeting others and gaining exposure to do business with others.
Thanks for the post!!
Great post, thanks!
My recommendation is to just pull up the forum page (all posts sorted by date) every day or two and go through the list for the last 24 hrs. You never know what topic might interest you. But you'll see some fascinating stuff. And its a good way to keep your options open to how you might want to proceed.
Just open the ones that catch your eye and keep reading.
Such a great website! I'm really glad I found this.
Keep up the great posts.
@Will Barnard made a great suggestion about making it habit to post frequently. I'm sure I'm not the first person who was initially overwhelmed by the number of forums and some difficulty in finding topics that were relevant to my interests. Two things, in particular, helped me:
First, completing my profile forced me to get past some of the idiosyncrasies of the site and become more familiar with its technical aspects.
Second, I've developed the habit of spending some time Sunday mornings. I no longer subscribe to the Sunday LA Times, hence I have never stepped on an acorn while barefoot in order to retrieve and read BP.
Thanks for the post!!!
Thanks Josh for the post!!!
I signed up a couple of months ago and have been lurking. I guess it's about time I do an introduction thread!
Thanks for the post. This was helpful. I am so excited to be part of BP.
This really is a great site. I thank god I stumbled across it.
Thanks for your post! I am happy to learn. :)
I look forward to getting further into the wealth of info on this site!
Thank you, it's easy to get overwhelmed with information- and you folks have a LOT of it here.
Thanks for the info.
I guess I have read enough to get started. So I'll go over my profile one more time and then post my new member introduction.
Please be patient with the newbies.
I'm also new to BP. (rookie status ROCKS!)
I just go to the help section and just read all the Q and A, that way if I come across something I already know the answer. If I really can't find it, then ask for help :) Just my $0.02
Glad to be on board!
