Welcome to the Class VIII page
VWD Chris, that's a pass on posting a reply. lol The system should have automatically given you a notice you have a message. (top of the page) Makes it easy to stay up-to-date on conversations.
Also, notice your signature is in red. That's because you haven't put anything on your "user page" yet. (every user has a page and a Discussion feature like this. Not to be confused with or used instead of creating a regular page as an Auditor, Person et. It's kind of like your Facebook profile page, not your Wall) Click on your username and type a few words about yourself there. That way people curious about who you are can see who it is that posted. The username will turn to blue once you put something there.
