Look at the top tabs. Recent posts is good for getting your feet wet on the general site discussion. Go to member tools and check out some things there. U2U is private messaging. Click board for all the boards and select one. At the very very top there are more links, one being belowtopsecret. Go to it for general off topic discussion, though it isn't very popular. Hope this helps.

one more thing

This board uses bb code.

here is what you need to know on it.

Welcome to the site, and enjoy your time here.

what are stars and flags and how do they work? what does OP mean?

OP is two meanings. Original Post and Original Poster. (think thats right, I am a bit lit right now) More of the english language hard at work.

Stars and flags are simply a rating system. Think of achievement points. The more your post is admired, the more "achievement points" you get. You can also get points this way to spend in the ATS store (see member tools).
