How do I post a discussion?
Discussions are a way for you to talk about what is important for you. We have set up a framework so you can add your comment in the most relevant place, but other than that it is up to you to add a topic and spark a discussion on what you are interested in talking about.
Firstly, navigate to the subject page you feel is most relevant for your post, using the images on the homepage.
Then, in the ‘start a discussion’ section, add a title and comments to your post. You can also add a picture, video, document or link using the icons.
Once you’re happy with it, click ‘submit’. You can delete it afterwards if you aren’t happy with it.
How do I vote or comment on a poll?
Polls appear down the right-hand side of subject pages. You can add your vote to your chosen answer and leave a comment in the box below if you wish. If you don’t want your name to be visible, tick ‘post anonymously’, before clicking ‘submit’ to cast your vote.
