Welcome to The Penis Enlargement Gym!
It’s good to have you here. Our forums are gaining popularity, and more-and-more men are posting here about pretty much every male health-related subject under the sun. All the information on these forums can get overwhelming, so here are some guidelines to help you on your way.
You don't have to be a member to read, but if you want to participate, get one-on-one advice, receive our monthly newsletter, and get other benefits, register here for free.
After you’re registered, you can post. The best places to start are either posting in our Introduction Thread or creating your own thread in the progress forum.
To start a new thread, you just click the button that says "New Thread" -- it's towards the top, on the left side of your screen.
To participate in a conversation that already has a thread, just go all the way to the bottom and click "Post Reply:”
Or if you scroll down just a bit more, you can type directly into the "Quick Reply" box at the bottom of the thread.
If you'd like to respond to one particular post out of many in the thread, you should quote it. Just click the "Quote" button at the bottom of the post you're responding to.
YOUR USER CP or User Control Panel
Your rep comments and points. After a while, you might start getting these. On every post, you should see several little icons on the bottom left under the username. One is the reputation point scale (it looks like three white buckets hanging from a swing). Anyone can click it, leave a comment, and boost someone's reputation.
Don't abuse the rep point system! The admins here can see if you try to "trade" rep points. This isn't allowed. The whole point of rep points is giving credit where it is due -- which is encouraged. For example, if some one helped you, it's common courtesy to say "thank you" by leaving a rep point. You can also use it to say LOL or leave other commentary. But don't try to trade rep points.
Edit Signature: Your signature appears on every post you make. Pictures are not allowed in your signature. If you are representing an approved website or product and you want to link it in your signature, keep it to one line (PM me or another admin to become approved).
Edit Email & Password: It’s a good idea to keep your email updated just incase you forget your password. Other good reasons to keep your e-mail current is that if you want to subscribe to a thread (to get notification of replies), get reminders for calendar events, get an e-mail when you have new Private Messages on the board, or receive The PE Gym Newsletter.
Edit Profile: Here's where you can put in a bio, link, photo, and answer various questions.
Edit Options: Here, you can decide to be invisible (mods can see through invisibility), turn off images if you're on dial-up and the pages load too slowly, choose whether or not to let people e-mail you, whether or not you want to get e-mail notification if someone sends you a private message, etc.
Edit Avatar: We currently allow our members to upload their own avatar of their choosing. We hope to keep it this way so long the avatars don't get abused. There are only two rules with avatars: No full nude porn and no advertising in the avatar. Avatars must be no larger than 100 by 100 pixels.
Edit Profile Picture: You can upload a picture of yourself here. People will see it when they click your username and go to your profile.
Private Messages: You can PM members privately. However, if you're PMing someone to ask them a question (particularly me or another mod) that the answer can help other people too, please create a thread instead. If you have a question, others probably do too. Once you have the thread created, then you can PM the mod and tell them about the thread. The reason for this is that it will help add to the collective knowledge of the forums.
Subscribed Threads: You choose to "subscribe" to threads, which means you'll be notified whenever someone responds to those particular threads. You have a few options of how to be notified-- immediately by e-mail, once a day by e-mail, or just in a separate spot here on the site. You can "unsubscribe" from threads in that spot on your User CP, too.
Event Reminders: If you see something on our calendar that's coming up and you want to be reminded of it before it happens, you can ask for a reminder to be sent to you.
Buddy / Ignore Lists: The Ignore list is useful for when you've encountered someone you just don't ever want to hear from again. There's no need to announce it, just quietly stick that person on "Ignore" and you won't ever have to trip over his or her posts again.
Attachments: If you've been able to upload attachments (pictures or documents), you can take them down later.
