If you haven't yet completed your profile when you have a minute could you pop something about your journey so far into it as it really helps others when answering. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Edit Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
Those of you who have had a reply from me may have noticed that when I send a reply to you, your name appears in green in the message and you also receive an email telling you that you have been mentioned in a post. This is called tagging and is handy especially if you want to respond to a specific person in a long thread.
If any of you would like to give it a go in future there's a link to an easy step by step guide at the end of this message called Tagging in 5. If anyone wants to practice then you could reply to this post and tag me in. I'll let you know if it worked or not!
