    Have a read of the sticky threads in the Introductions section. See if there is a section for the diet you are following. Good luck.

    Well you have started off in the right place so you all must be doing something right!

    Id say start off here http://www.minimins.com/

    This is the main page.

    On that main page is everything! Imagine it as a shopping centre!

    In the shopping centre there are lots of shops!

    So if you were a weight watcher dieter, you would go to the weight watcher shop, click on it, and you will find lots of little mini shops all about weight watchers!

    I would go on about forums, and sub forums, but its computer jargon, to people who don't understand forums!

    When you write a on a post or start your own thread, a lot of people don't know how to go and find them, to see if anyone has responded to them, the easiest way I have found is to click on the QUICK LINKS button ( its on the blue bar above) anyway, click that and a little list will appear, near the bottom it says SUBSCRIBED THREADS, if you click that, a list will appear with all the posts that you have made.

    Hope this helps a bit !

    That has helped especially the quick links. Thanks so much. I can see now if anyone has replied etc. I haven't reached 50 posts yet so maybe it will be easier when I have.

    Hi,

    Can someone help with the following questions that I haven't found answers to yet on the site?
    - How can I see "New likes received"? Do I need a certain number of posts first?
    - How do "Thanks" and "Thanked in Posts" get counted?

    Thank you!
