Hey fools: Just some notes for you because you're new.
In general, it's best to establish clear topics or use existing ones.
In other words, what do you want people to talk about here? What their career goals are and why? If so, then it's best to post a topic whose title says that clearly, or find an existing topic on same.
If you just want to talk about yourself in general, setting up a single thread for yourself in the Village People forum is the best place for that.
But do understand that this is a message board, not a chat server. In other words, not everyone will go into every topic and post, and despite having a large userbase, people aren't always actively posting 24/7. So, if you're frustrated with the silence, rather than continuing to post to abate that, a chat server might be more of what you're looking for.
Lastly, you'll find that most foibles are easy to avoid just by carefully reading the guidelines, directions in applicable topics or forums, or the "new to scarleteen" thread in site help and service.
