The first page you will see is the main page where all of the discussions will be taking place. You should be accessing this page and participating in discussions on a regular basis.

Topics within the Discussion Area
Once you click into the discussion area you wish to access (ex: Getting Started), you will see a list of available topics.
Responding to a Topic
Once you click into the topic you want to respond to (i.e. Best Sports Moment in Your Life) you will see the question text for the question you should be answering as well as a text box to put in your response.
While on the main Discussion page you will see a tab ‘Activities’ (this is only visible if an activity is available). If we have any special projects or activities for you to participate in they will be located here.
Right now there are no special projects active so this tab is not visible. If one becomes available you will receive a notification and further instructions.
The summary section is like the “newsfeed” of the community. Here you can see what other participants have been up to as well as comment on their posts.
Commenting on Someone’s Post
You can view posts from other respondents by going into a specific topic or within the summary tab. We encourage you to comment on posts from other participants and/or moderators and interact with other people in the community!
