    Hello there, and welcome to Taxidermy.net! For some, things might look a bit different, and it's because we made some changes to the software we run here. In this guide you will find tips, and techniques to using the features of the site.

    I've include mini tutorials to help you navigate the site, such as uploading attachments, changing your avatar, or sending a private message to another user. While I know this might seem overwhelming, this tutorial is here to help.

    As always if you have any questions I don't address here, please don't hesitate to reach out to the staff, or post a new thread in the forum.

    Uploading an Avatar:

    Start by rolling over your username, in the top right of the page.
    The navbar will present you with a drop down menu. Approximately midway down the dropdown you will see an option labeled "Avatar". Click on it.
    • An overlay will appear allowing you to upload an image.
    • Browse until you find just the right image to be your representation on the site.
    • Don't worry you can always change it later if you'd like.
    • Once you select the image, the site will automatically upload the image, and you're all set.

    Sharing your photos or files via Attachments

    Sharing a photo is the simplest way to say a lot without really having to say anything. So if you are looking to upload your images on the site this is how you can do it, and this technique applies to replying with a post, or creating a new thread.

    Below the Reply Box, you will see an option "Upload a File". From there you navigate to the images you'd like to upload. Once selected, the forum will upload them, and give you a few options of showing them as a full image, or thumbnail. More than likely, I'd recommend clicking on Full image, as it makes it easier for everyone to see the full size right away.

    Creating A Thread

    Being apart of a forum, it's easy to simply reply with your thoughts, or questions to an already created thread, but what if you want to create your own? One key step is finding the right forum to post in. You don't want to post a "Thinking about buying my first Kel-Tec" in the off topic lounge, or vice versa. So carefully look through the forums list on the forum homepage, and click on the one that best describes your topic.

    Once there look in the right hand side near the top, and you will see "Post New Thread" if your permissions allow it. From there fill in the content as best you can, maybe upload a picture and submit.
