    The Agenda of a Newbie

    Welcome New Users!
    Okay, first things first: welcome to the boards! Here's the first thing to do:
    1:Create a thread in the Welcome New Users forum. This is an excellent way to get to know people. Just create a topic stating that you're new... and just wait, the answers will start pouring in!

    2: Check out this [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=10253086&replies=242]Newbie Adoptions v3.0[/link] to get adopted. This thread is co-ordinated by MASTER_OBI-DAN . This is where you get to be adopted. Some kind user will adopt you and show you the way of the boards. The cool places to hang out, who your mods are, and above all, they?ll answer any questions you may have concerning theforce.net

    3:Fill out your profile. A great way to make friends is by filling your profile with your interests, such as what you like about Star Wars, or what brought you to the boards.
    3a:While you?re filling out your profile, also fill out your signature. A signature is the little box that goes under each post. A signature can be anything, giving a link or a quote or just having something funny.
    3b:But remember: this is only a suggestion. It is not required to fill out your profile or signature.

    1a.:It?s not a must to check out this forum. This forum is for the problems of the board. Don?t be scared to ask here, but remember: check out the Sticky topics that are the first thread on the forum.

    2.: Check out the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/board.asp?brd=10313]Informational Threads[/link] forum for some basis information that should be known.
    2a.: And you can also check out [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=10190564&replies=0] Current Administrators v3.0[/link] for some more information on your mods.
