RE: Please explain
Articles written etc... gets you rated, I think and thanks given if you press the thanks button at the bottom of the blue box IF you like what somebody posted...

Post stuff to get rated etc...

Doesnt have to be earth shattering stuff, we mostly read online papers and alternative news sites and post any interesting "intel" we find to keep each other up to date, bit like a military unit if you like.

Also hints, tips and advice if you have any are all gratefully received...

The idea behind prepping is generally to have a backup so you dont have to rely on government sources should any major emergency happen.
Also we post interesting intel so we get prior notice of events.

News online is generally 24 hours ahead of the papers and news channels.
Sometimes it can only be a few hours but that few hours lets you get to the supermarket before the majority know and get to the petrol station in advance of the crowds etc...

Prior notice that an asteroid say was coming our way enables you to find a big deep cave....TongueTongue

You'll get the hang of it after a while.
Were all here to help.
Just somewhere for like minded people to hang out I suppose.
It can be quite lonely if your the only one who can "see" potential trouble around the corner...

As for the star ratings, as far as I can tell, I'm the only person that gives a rating to a thread. Don't think it's a special privilege. I'm certain everyone is able to do the same. Just click whatever star you think a thread deserves. I'll click 5* for this thread and you'll see it become a 5* thread.

The Thanks button is the same as a 'like' on Facebook, but can also just be a way to say 'Thanks' (Who'd have imagined haha).

The reputation button is for giving a person a rating. People get rated for so many different things. It can be for helpful comments, good articles or threads, good moral standing, or anything at all.

Preppers willingly embrace the benefits of modern technology, but we aint daft enough to rely upon it.
