A Big adventure? I say “No thanks”

I don't feel a great longing for real adventures these days. Climbing Mt Everest probably is not in my future. I don't know whether I should feel troubled about that. My attitude towards adventure is pretty much the same as Bilbo Baggins in “The Hobbit”.…

With any new site, we understand that finding your way around can be a bit daunting. To help you use our site, we have a few resources and tips, all of which can be found on pages under the ABOUTtab in your top menu bar. They are:

FAQ- here you can find some quick answers to general questions, questions about privacy and about site features.

Site News, Tips & Tricks- this is our forum where you can find tips on using the site, news about site changes and other information from the staff and other members.

Our Terms Of Service and Our Copyright Policy can also be found under the ABOUTtab.

You may also find additional help by going to chat and asking another member. Chat can be found in 2 place: There is a CHAT  link in your top menu which will open chat in your browser.

The other option is to use the small tabs at the bottom of most pages. The tab named "Opium Den" (our chat name) will open the chat in a small pop up window at the bottom of the screen. This window can also be 'popped-out' and used as a separate window.

There is also a "Members Online" tab on the bottom of your page. This will show which other members are logged in(logged in does not mean they are active in the chat, simply they are logged in to the site). There is a small speaker icon which will allow you to adjust the chat beeps which many prefer to turn off or down when not actively chatting.

We have many excellent features and tools here. While it may seem overwhelming at first, the basics of posting and commenting are simple and before too long we hope you will feel comfortable and at home.
