You are now sitting in your club's special folder! Below is a helpful guide to give to all club members that will get them registered for the Fool and posting alongside you.

If your fellow club members are having trouble finding the folder or registering, we invite you to print out a copy of the instructions below for each member. Or print one and photocopy it. Or chisel copies of it on slabs of stone. Or spray-paint it on a highway overpass. Whatever works.Thanks!

============ GETTING AROUND FOOLDOM ============


First, you'll want to get to the Fool's website. It's at: <> (You might want to bookmark this page.)


There's one thing you'll need to do before being able to post any messages in our folders -- and that's register. It's free, it's easy, and we promise not to sell your name or information to anyone. You'll just have to do it once, assuming you remember your user name and password. To register, you can go directly to this web page: <> -- or you can click on the words 'Free Registration' which appear in the vertical navigation bar on the right-hand side of our main page. Once there, just fill in the blanks and follow the directions. After you do this, you'll be e-mailed a password. Once you have the password, you can change it to one you'll remember easily. That's it!


Near the top of our main page, in the vertical navigation bar on the right-hand side, you'll see a red button called 'Community.' Click it.

On the 'Community' page, you'll find investment clubs on the right-hand side, 6 subjects down. Click it. The club folders are listed in alphabetical order. Click on 'Show Me More' until you find your club's folder.

Once you get to your club's folder, click on it. You'll soon find yourself looking at a list of all the messages in the folder. You'll also see a big red heart. Click the heart and you will have added your club's folder to your collection of 'Favorite Folders.' This means that whenever you log in to the Fool, you can go right to your favorite folders without hunting for them. Feel free to mark any other folders as favorites, such as folders for stocks you own, or investment approaches you're interested in.
