Here's a brief video that introduces the LTM Forum. Anyone with a LearnToMod account also has access to the Forum. Your Forum nickname will be your LTM nickname (the last part of the Sign Up process is choosing a LTM nickname).
Here are some rules and guidelines that new Forum users should read.
The LearnToMod Forum can be reached by clicking Social < Forum on the topmost navigation bar on the LearnToMod homepage. It's a great way discuss coding mods with other LTM users! The discussions here are meant to enlighten students, teachers, and the LearnToMod staff about coding help, new feature releases and suggestions about LearnToMod. Any posts that have nothing to do with the above, or the "categories" offered will mostly likely be considered off-topic.
By clicking the 3-line Hamburger button in the corner, you can:
View all the current categories or forum boards
When posting or commenting, you can upload images, quote others, or invite certain LTM users by name to join your discussion.
Actions you can take on a topic's comments include: bookmarking, hearting, flagging (other comments).
To delete comments or posts you make, press ... then the trash icon.
