Getting Started

  • Why should I register with the community?

    Registering lets you take full advantage of the community, enabling you to:
    • Post new messages and reply to other members' posts
    • Receive email when someone responds to a specific post or topic
    • Exchange private messages with other members
    • Personalize your community experience
    • Post comments on blogs that don't allow anonymous comments
    • Post ideas, vote on the ideas you like best, and post comments
    If you don't register, you can only browse, search for information, and read posts.
  • What can I do if I don't register?

    Even if you don't register, you can still browse, search for information, and read posts. You can't post, give kudos, vote on ideas, interact with the other community members, or set customization preferences. Blogs are one possible exception: some blogs let you post comments even if you're not registered.
