    Welcome to all our New and Returning Members. The following is a brief tutorial to help you navigate Political Jack more easily.

    For easy navigation, use the tabs at the top of your page. First, please introduce yourself to us here on the Introductions forum. We are glad you are here. Introducing yourself is the best first step to start your posting here on Political Jack.

    1. Inbox: On the top, right side of the page is your Inbox. You can carry on private "Conversations" with other posters here. Just write the conversation, add the poster monikers (up to 15) and give your conversation a title. You will be alerted to responses by a little red number posted by the word "Inbox".

    2. Alerts: To the right of the Inbox is your Alert box. This box shows you posts that have been posted since your last visit (with a little red number) according to your preferences. To designate what type of alert you wish to see, scroll over the word "Alerts" and you will see a drop-down box. At the bottom of that box you will see "Alert Preferences". Click and you will get a menu of Alert Preferences. Check the ones you want. The Alerts you receive can help you focus on what you might want to respond to first.

    3. Your Name: To the left of the Inbox tab you will see your name. Click on that to see your profile page. Change or add to that and the tabs you will see there to your liking.

    Don't hesitate to click the other tabs you see on Political Jack. The New Post and Recent Post tabs will lead you to a list of the most popular posts at the moment. These tabs will include posts from all forums, so don't hesitate to use them as you read. Using your Alerts, New Posts, and Recent Posts tabs, you can quickly navigate what is happening in real time, then, at your leisure read deeper into what is being posted on Political Jack.

    Welcome and do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions.

    Hi. My name is Sunset Rose. (That's not my real name, that was the scent of the fabric softner my daughter bought me yesterday and I like the sound of it) I am a middle aged woman who lives in the Central Valley area of California. I'm a lifelong Democrat; I consider myself a moderate on most issues. I love politics and history. After reading some of the posts here, I think I'm going to like it. Looking forward to debating with you folks.

    Hello Sunset Rose. Welcome. Things can get a bit brutal here sometimes but we're mostly an amiable crowd.

    The information in the top post here made by Minotaur is an old one that was posted when Min and I were moderators (last year). I'm not sure that the present group of moderators offer mentoring in a specific sense. The format has changed and we no longer have PM's in that form but we have "conversation" ability which is pretty much the same thing as a PM. And, if you have any questions, feel free to ask in the appropriate forum and someone will be glad to answer.

    Jump right in and start talking and don't be put off if someone gets in your face. It happens and it's okay.

    Jen

    Welcome.

    The navigation and posting is straightforward. The personalities too... In a few days you'll have a solid grasp of both...

    Best regards.

    It's great to have international participation, but your avatar gives the impression of a commercial spam-bot.

    Hi,

    I'm BP, and I was here for a while some time ago.

    Now I'm back, and I would love to have a Moderator Mentor (I'm hoping for Connie or Mino).

    But, but.....BP...............you WERE a Moderator.
    You could mentor yourself!! What a good idea!:p:p
    Minotaur is no longer a moderator.
    Neither am I.
    Our active moderators are connie and PhilFish.
    Friday may be a moderator but I never see her here and haven't for a very long time.

    Maybe connie will help you out though if you're nice. ;)

    It's nice to see you back.

    Thanks, Jen.

    To be honest, they're all good, you foremost among them, and I would love having any number of you as mentors though I'm not sure about that Gringo fellow. He seems weak.

    You know how to jump right in. I remember that.
    If you have any questions just post them or ask one of us in a "conversation"........ I'm sure gringo was just ribbin' ya.
