I've been inviting folks who've just joined Atheist Nexus, and haven't had time to figure out how it works. This discussion is intended to ease that learning curve.
The most common confusion I've encountered is that the boxes for adding comments and replies to discussions are easy to see, but how to start a discussion is almost hidden.
Look for a plus sign and blue words "add a discussion" above the bar setting off the comment wall.
Thanks, many sites have at least a small learning curve, and it doesn't help that with Web 2.0 sites, features are constantly changed or added (last time I was on before today, for example, I don't think there were "likes", but that seems pretty self-explanatory!).
Back when I was a kid, websites were boringly static and could go years without changing anything major...and we liked it! :-)
Thanks for getting me started Ruth. I've been spending time on ThinkAtheist but really haven't tried out Atheist Nexus yet. You inspired me to give it some time.
Here's a little navigation hint:
I just discovered that by clicking on a person's name, you get to their discussion page.
BUT By clicking on their profile photo, you get to their home page. Just thought I would share this little tip if you haven't figured that one out yet. It's not very intuitive.
By visiting a home page, you can learn a little more about a new friend or member.
Thanks for this hint; I did not know it and look forward to using it.
Favorite food and drink? ummm....that depends. I do drink a lot of diet Coke, and may be addicted to fresh hot pizza, and what is better then a hamburger? Not the fast food hamburger the real ones, cooked (for me) rare and stacked with lettuce, tomato, pickles - wonderful.
