You'll just have to take my word for it that it's ME answering, lol! "Post" is how you ask questions. As you can see, your questions "posted" just fine!
If you are reading a discussion (thread) and want to answer, click "reply." If you want to start a thread, do what you did and click on the post new thread button.
I can see you are new to Splitcoast Stampers, lol. Are you new to stamping as well? Tell us more, please!
