Core Concepts

Objects
All forums, threads, stories, apps, and groups are considered "objects".

Ownership
Objects are owned by the person who created them. As an owner you can delete the object, add a primary image, and edit the object's description.

Sharing Ownership
As the owner you can also share ownership with your friends. A "co-owner" can do anything an owner can EXCEPT they can not delete the object, remove co-owners or owner.

Board posts
Posting a board post instantly shares your message with all your friends.

Replying / Comments
Any board post can be replied to. Simply mouseover the message and you will be presented with the "Add Comment" link. Using this link will allow you to directly comment on that board post.

Board Post/Reply - Attach Link
When adding a board post or reply you can attach a URL. We instantly collect the title of the website you entered and will display that under your message.

Board Post/Reply - Attach Image
You can directly add an image to your board post or reply by using this link. Simply browse to your image and it will upload instantly.

Direct Share
When clicking Info on your profile you will see your Direct Share e-mail address. This is your PRIVATE e-mail address that will allow you to post to your board messages and images from any mobile device.

Direct Share Objects
Your profile, along with groups and apps you create have a Direct Share e-mail address. You can share to these objects via the private Direct Share address.

Tags
All objects can be "tagged" for easier categorizing. Please assign tags to your objects ONLY if they are related in subject, otherwise your tags or complete object may be deleted.

An example of appropriate subject tagging would be writing a story on "Exploring a local abandoned school" and tagging it as "Urban Exploration."
