Where am I ?

You are on DY (dostiyaari.com), lol. Simple!!

Hehe, this is a website where you come and meet people, make new friends, interact with them and keep on enjoying and enjoying!!
Technically, DY is a "Community Portal". Such websites are also known as "Discussion Forums".

Great, now what can I do here? ?

I just told you above, go and make friends and interact with people.

But why cannot I "add" a friend ?

Sorry, I forgot to tell.
You cannot "add" friends to your profile, as we are not a "Social Networking" website. I just told you that DY is a "Community Portal. So you cannot "add" people as your personal friends. Be a part of the community and enjoy!!

Well, so how do I "make" friends on the website? ?

Now, thats an intelligent question!! You are learning fast!!
DY is based on the following principle - "Find like minded people with whom you'll love to talk, argue or fight". You discuss with other users on various issues, play games, pull each other's leg, share happiness and sorrows etc etc and in the process "make" friends.
If you need a place to "add" friend to have a long friends list, then there are so many other places you know of.
We believe friendship has to arise from mindshare and heartshare. So go and share your mind and heart with other community members and start enjoying the fun!!

So where do I start ?

I am really obliged that you want to give it a shot.
Go to "Home Page", click on "my introduction" link, and start by giving your introduction. Then wait for other users to come and welcome you and take you on a fun ride @DY.
If you have already done so, then you can go to "Forums" link and gatecrash in any "thread" you find interesting. Keep rolling!!

I tried "Introduction" as you said, but what the **** are these - forums, threads, posts ?

Ouch!! Sorry, my bad!!
Since you are on this page, that means you are a newbie. I should have explained you.
Prime activity on DY is to "interact" with users i.e. to discuss on virtually anything.
Now, website is divided into "Discusson Areas, known as Forums". Each discussion area represents a certain theme. For example, there are "Discussion Areas, i.e. Forums" for "General Chit Chat", "Love and Friendship", "Sports" etc.
Now, in a forum, users can interact with each other on any topic related to that forum. Each new topic is called "Thread". Starting a new topic of dicussion means "Creating a thread".
Now, once a user has created a thread, other users can join the discussion, and write in their views on that topic. This is called as a "Reply" to a thread. This is also referred to as a new "Post". Each reply is basically a message by a user. Technially, post is a general word used whenever you add something on DY - a new thread, or a new reply.

Ok, I understood, now what next ?

Go and give your introduction!! lol.
Crash some threads and post your exciting replies

I see other users have nice images along with their names, I need one too !!

On home page, click on the link saying "Upload Profile Image". You can then choose from a range of icons given to you by DY or you can upload one of yours. You can also upload your real picture.

And, now what is this "signature"

Signature is a text or an image or a combination of both that comes below every post you make. So, go create your style statement, I mean your signature.

Ok, now I have a signature also, what next ?

You are again the same question, hehe.
And I again have the same answer, go and Post, Post, Post!!!

What is someone fights with me in a thread or makes fun of me ?

Give them a strong kickback, hehe.
Actually, all DYians are goodie goodie chaps. Nobody will fight with you. You'll love to interact with them. And in case anybody messes with you, just let me know.

Finally, if I need to change my password or email, where do I go ?

Follow the "User Control Panel" link in the Left Menu. That gives you all the power.
Top
Ok, lastly, how can I tell you that "Um loving it" ?

By posting, posting and posting!!! power
