    Default How To Start A Thread on Political World

    What to do when you want to start a thread...

    First check if there is there an identical thread - a look down the forum page if it's an current topic, and maybe a search using the search function if its history or economics etc.

    Site Rules and Terms of Use

    If you are new, read the Site Rules and Terms of Use before posting. For example, messages that damage people, violent or racist posts, will be deleted and are likely to lead to banning.

    If a new thread is needed...

    To start a thread, go to the Forum page (click forum in the navbar) and find the most suitable forum for your thread. Some forums also have subforums e.g. NAMA in Irish Economy or Fianna Fail in Political Parties.

    Click the "new thread" button on the upper left hand side of the right forum/subforum. Enter the title and the post into the posting boxes.

    Title your thread carefully -

    Take care with your title, as you may not be able to change or correct it later.
    Choose a title that tells as much as possible about the topic. Use the words you think someone would search for in Google, if they were looking for your thread. This will mean a lot more people are likely to read and reply to your thread.

    Write a good Opening Post (OP)

    An good opening post should contain information, your opinion and invitation to debate.

    Tags

    Enter tags in the tag line under the posting box - use the key words that people might search for in search engines - Proper names, and exact terms are more likely to be helpful.


    Happy posting.
