Welcome to the CHUG Forums

The forum section is an online discussion where users can hold conversations in the form of posted questions.

Take the short tour of how our forum work
and how best to participate!

Layout Overview

Question categories with number of unread posts displayed next to them.

Quick view of Recent, Popular, or Unanswered posts.

Any unread posts will display a blue bullet point in front of them.

You can sort the display by clicking on the column headers.

Weighted cloud tags display trending topics.

Ask Questions, Get Answers

This site is all about getting answers. It’s not a discussion forum. There’s no chit-chat.

Good answers are voted up and rise to the top.

The best answers show up first so that they are always easy to find.

The person who asked can mark one answer as “accepted”.

Accepting doesn’t mean it’s the best answer, it just means that it worked for the person who asked.

Tags make it easy to find interesting questions

Questions should be tagged with their subject areas. Each post can have multiple tags, since a question might be related to several subjects.

Click on the weighted tag cloud to see a list of questions with that tag.
