Frequently Asked Questions Sxlogo10
Here's a basic how-to guide for using some of the features here at Steelers Xtreme. The list will grow as more questions arise. If you have a question that isn't addressed here, make a post in the Feedback & Support forum or send a PM to one of the mods or admins.

REP POINTS
If you like someone's post, you can give them a Rep point. Simply click on the green thumbs-up button, located in the example below. To see how many Rep points you've received from others, look under your username and avatar (see example below).

Sending PMs:
There are several ways to send PMs to other members.
1. At the bottom of every post, you'll see three icons (Profile ... PM ... Email). Click on the PM icon and a new window will pop up, and it will automatically put that poster's name in the Username field. Then just fill out the Subject field and your message and click Send.

2. Anywhere on the board you see someone's Username, click on it and it will take you to their Profile. Under the navigation bar (below the Steelers Xtreme banner), click on Contact. When the new window pops up, click on the PM icon. A new window will pop up, and it will automatically put that poster's name in the Username field. Then just fill out the Subject field and your message and click Send.

VISITOR'S MESSAGES
Visitor's messages are messages that other member's can leave for you on your Profile page. But since the board doesn't have a notification system to alert you to a new visitor's message, we don't really use this feature. Instead, we just use PMs.
