If I post or reply how am I identified online?

You are identified with your profile picture and your first initial and last name. There is no visibility to other profile information. You may choose not to set a profile picture and some members use a picture of their cabin.

Why do Topics have different icons?

  1. Announcements  always sort to the top of the posts, are created by a moderator and locked so only moderators can reply. This Read Me Guide is an example of an Announcement.

  2. Sticky always sort immediately below any Announcements and above any regular topics.

  3. Regular Topics display below any Announcements and Sticky and can be sorted by most recent activity date. Scroll down to see all the posts or click on the next and previous page arrows.

What should not be a Topic on the NFH Community Forum?
