In the course of doing this, I need to know if, if I posted some of the work here, could the community review it to make sure I understand what I'm saying. I want to move as smoothly as possible from one philosopher and his/her period of time to the next and with philosophies being so different, I can imagine that might not be the easiest thing to do. So as I attempt, I asking if I could get help some help. Is it acceptable to the community to ask for this kind of help from the community?
Welcome to the forum Iota! Got a little behind on welcomes. :surrender: Thank you for the introduction and asking about this. I think the community would be more than happy to review it and comment on it. Please PM me with more information and we'll see if we can't brainstorm a way to make something like this beneficial to the community, yourself and others who may stumble across it. Maybe this could be something on the collaborative side.
Arjen, another member of the forum, suggested that. I've never been part of a discussion board or community like this. So, I'm not clear yet of what I should do or how. I realize I'm coming into a community and I don't want to anger anybody, especially since I'm asking for help on something. When I get this draft written, I'm not sure how to post to a blog. This that I'm writing on now isn't it, right?
What you've posted above is a 'Post
' or a response
within a thread. A thread is the main topic of discussion and starts out with the New Thread
To reply to the main topic (thread
), simply browse down the page to the Post Reply
button. To reply to a reply, within a thread, simply hit the quick reply button or.
If you'd like to quote someone, selecting Quote Post
with take you to another page with the full editor. If you select Multi Quote
button, it will turn yellow so you know it's clicked and as you browse the thread, you can select that button on several posts
and then when you hit Post Reply
at the bottom, it will have all those quoted in your reply editor separated by 1 line and a quote tag
. Then you simply delete the text you don't want to save some room and be specific. Quoting will have the quote
tag with the box 
Rather than getting into a long discussion about this, I will make several videos and publish them on the forum. Tutorials of the sort. We really need some of these as forums can be quite complex if you aren't on them all the time. Videos would be of great assistance so I'll be sure to get a couple made before the week ending.
Meanwhile, I would highly recommend taking a look at the FAQ
and just take your time as the forum is designed to be both intuitive and explanatory. If you look close and mouse over slowly, there will be text to help you along the way.
You'll find that in this forum, we try our best not to get angry with one another. Glad you asked about this and feel free to PM me as maybe a social forum for this project would be a way to organize and present it.
Thanks for joining and thanks again for asking your questions. Look forward to your PM. ... .
... Oh, before I forget, PM is simply and acronym for Private Message
