    Make sense?


    Here's the link to the Detailing 101 forum which is a great catch-all forum and if you don't know which of other forums to post your questions then Detailing 101 is always perfectly acceptable

    Hi Terry,

    Welcome to Meguiar's Online!

    Here's a friendly tip...

    Turn the CAPS key off when typing to people whether it's an e-mail or a post to a forum, it has the appearance as though you're YELLING at us.

    We know you're not yelling at us, it just looks like that to everyone that reads your writing.




    Also, when introducing yourself, the idea is to "Start your own thread", not tag onto this thread or some other existing thread.

    We keep "Pictures" at the bottom of the forum homepage which is www.meguiarsonline.com that shows how to do 3 things,

    Start a thread
    Reply to a thread
    Navigate a thread

    Here's the information and picture for how to start your own thread.



    If you want to start a new thread, then click to the appropriate forum by clicking here and selecting the forum that best describes what your topic will be about and then look for the button on the left hand side of the page that says, New Thread and click on it. You'll see a place to type in your Subject and below that a message box that you can type your message into. After you're finished with your message, click on the Submit New Thread button and your message will be posted to the forum.







    Just a few friendly tips that will help you on any forum you ever join.


    Again... welcome!

    Hi Mike and all,

    Southern Maine Saab owner here, where cars can take beating from the elements.

    I bought NXT wax based on many unbiased reviews. During my first application, I was impressed with the shine, however, when I ran my hand over the surface, it felt gritty.

    After researching that problem, VOILA, up pops Mike's video demonstrating Meguiar's Clay on a brand new Silverado.

    So, I decided to join this site and forums to learn from all of you.

    Thanks for being here,
    -Bob

    Thank you for allowing me to join your forum. Although I do not "detail" as an occupation.... I seem to keep busy on my own equipment. My current project is a 40' Mountain Aire fifthwheel that spent the winter in Kelso, Washington. Now that summer has arrived it's time to do some cleaning. I'll post as I come to the different issues. Thanks again.

    We welcome you two to the forum, but start your own new thread, this post is merrily an information post. A lot of people may miss the chance to see your introduction as a result.

    Start a new thread in the "Introduce Yourself" part of the forum.

    Thanks.

    Hi Bio-tech,

    Discussion forums can be a little confusing when you first start out but you'll get the hang of it.

    If you want to attend a Thursday Night Class you need to select one that you want to go to and the "Reply" to that thread.

    This thread was just a friendly tip for people new to forums to get them to only post a new thread in this forum group to introduce themselves and to start their own thread listing their questions in a forum like Detailing 101 and not include them in their "Introduction" thread.

    Make sense?
