New to forums? Check the FAQ to help get you started Forums, Threads and Posts :)

Find the section of the forum that most suits your topic. And double-check by looking at the short description of the purpose of the forum section just near the top of the page. eg: above you will see Site Feedback For feedback on Gnutelliums and Gnutella Forums.
For feedback on a specific Gnutella client, please post in one of the forums above; ie: Current Gnutella Client Forums

Then find and press the New Thread button just below that description to the far left of the page near the top. This will allow you to create your own new thread. Of course, you should detail your thread as to your problem, details of your computer system, etc. is a simple guide and for system details: System details - help us to help you (click on blue link) and post in accordance with the Gnutella Forum RULES. :)

Before you post a new thread, do a forum search to see if a similar problem has not been previously answered using forum search function & checking forum section posts, and if there are red Sticky's at the top of the forum section, then be sure you have had a look to see if there's no previous answer to your issue. Example of a Sticky: Stickies are answers to commonly asked questions. :)

See sample image below to create a New Thread & see what Sticky listing looks like in a section index listing:

Just a note: After posting a new thread or a post reply and you see a note that says 'Your post may be held in queue for Moderation', be patient! It means your post has been sent but is being held to be first checked by a moderator for approval before it can be seen in the forum. So PLEASE do not repeat your post. It will eventually be seen by other members within hours at the very least. :)
