  • helpful and informative
  • friendly and civil (even when disagreeing)

1. NAVIGATION

The forum is organized with the following hierarchy.

What we call “Topics” are also called “threads” or “questions” on other web forums.

To create a new topic, visit a category, then press the “New Topic” button in the navigation bar.

2. WRITING & FORMATTING POSTS

If you haven’t taken the fun tutorial about writing and formatting posts, it’s a great place to start!

Our automated assistant, :robot: @TravelBot walks you through it step by step.

  1. Click on your user icon in the top right corner of any page.
  2. Then click @travelbot’s message entitled “Greetings!”

3. EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS

You can always adjust your default email notifications.

  • By default, you’ll get an email with any new topic posted to any category. This invites you to answer new questions that other members post.

  • You can adjust how closely you follow a specific category. Just click the box on the right side of a category or topic.

5. WHAT NEXT?

Introduce yourself in the “Introduce Yourself” topic.

Here, I’ll break the ice right here. :wink:

My name is Daniel Keebler. I work at accessibleGO.

I love traveling, especially getting upclose with nature.

My wife has some mobility challenges but it doesn’t stop us from finding new adventures as a family. Here we are fishing in New York.
