Posted: Welcome to HoP's social forum!
The social forum is the place for chat and forms a large part of our open and friendly community. After all we can't just talk about poi and staff spinning!
Social is split into several sections:
Social Chat - is a place for informal and random chit chit, silly threads, games, one liners and the infamous "either/or" and "what do you know" threads.
Social Discussion – is for more involved talk. Here we ask people to keep to the topic of the thread.
Introductions – Is where people get to know who everyone else is. If you're new start your own introduction thread and let us know who you are.
Help – Exactly that – if you need help then find it here.
Note: These are open forums and as such posts should avoid being individual communications or a replacement for a chat room. HoP provides a Private Message system and we ask you to use this or direct email for personal communications. There is also an independently maintained chat room provided for Home of Poi users by Flid. Excessive and insular posting in a thread makes it less approachable to new visitors, uses up bandwidth that has to be paid for and causes technical problems for the board.
When you start a thread you must give it a meaningful subject! Not only will people be more likely to read it, but it is fustrating trying to find one particualr thread wif they are all called "Help!" or "Hello!". Also subjects and posts must not be in ALL CAPS or else or else they will be deleted.
Commonly Posted Threads
Home of Poi has been around for years, and so we get quite a lot similar threads started on a regular basis. If you're thinking of starting a thread along the following lines please do a search to find an current thread to add to:

Hi, my name's Xyz, I'm new to the board!
Welcome! Please introduce yourself in the [Old link] section by starting your own thread and telling us a little about yourself.
Help! I'm having problems with the board!
You can try looking at the [Old link] to see if that helps, and if not contact one of the [Old link] who'll try to help as best we can.
I have a question about the shop. / My Home of Poi order hasn't arrived yet!
If you have a question about the shop then the Home Of Poi shop can be contacted directly at email@example.com. Many people on the board have bought from the shop and so can tell you how good they think something is, but only the shop directly can answer any precise questions such as shipping costs/times.
Somebody just told me to do a search. Were they being rude?
Some questions get asked a lot of times, so the answer is on the board somewhere already. In the near future each section will have it's own FAQ, but until then a search is the best and quickest way of accessing years of posts.
