2. Open up Forum and the topic or PM (Private Message) you wish to answer or send. Paste it by right clicking and choosing paste from the drop down menu (OR Control / Ctrl + V) in your Forum "Message" or " Reply" box. The URL will appear. 

3. Sometimes this will take by itself.

4. If it doesn’t click on the icon “image” box above the text box - 2nd Line where B for bold is and I for italics, 11 across is image icon. This will open a box to paste the http
 address in. Paste (Ctrl + V ) & Click OK.

*Laughs and reads all the things V has posted for bored newbies and fun things to participate in.*

 

This is a great idea. I will be writing more for my newest Literotica publication. I have published another poem and my first STORY, Chapter one, posted there as of this morning.  I am excited to continue writing and improving my skills, as input and commentaries are permitted there. As for Forum, I love some of these wacky threads! They are challenging and crazy fun keeping people on their toes and posting. Good Job V

 

As for the state of 3DX Servers, I recommend patience. Anything that takes this long must be pretty involved for it to be down so long. I hope, as many of you do, that it is up and running soon! That said however, Many good things to do here in Forum or RL as well. Carry On Fellow 3DX'ers!
