Welcome to Discourse!
We know it can be a little challenging to play with at first, so let’s go over a tour on how to best leverage our Forum platform to grow your cloud skills!
First, make sure to sign up clicking in ~Sign Up~ in the header and filling up the form that shows up next.
You will, then, be able to see the home page. There are two columns: Categories and Latest Topics.
Let’s visit Categories first. As a member, you can read different topics in any of the three available topics, although you can just start conversations in one of them, General Discussion. That’s where we can have any kind of conversations and discussions. “Community News and Announcements” is reserved for any news that we want to make public to the entire Skycrafters community, while “Content and Articles” mimics what’s available in our Blog, giving you a space to discuss the articles.
If you look at the Latest Topics column, however, you are going to see the newest topics available for you to engage, ranging between all the different categories.
Whenever you click in a Topic, you can read and reply to it. You can even highlight a text that you want to quote in your answer!
We love to see you participating across the community, so we decided to reward those that engage the most. So you are going to be rewarded different badges depending on specific actives, such as the first time you post or the first time you get a like.
There is also the concept of Trust Level. Those that are more respected by the community will upgrade from the Base level to higher levels. We may even award you with physical goodies when you do so
This is just a short summary of how to use our platform.
Thank you and welcome to Skycrafters!
