Hello colleagues and welcome.
Your credentials as NowPublic editors should automatically grant you posting rights. You have to be logged in, obviously.
At some point in the near future, we'll be migrating to a fancy new system where you'll have a new member page, etc.
Until our servers recache completely, to get back to the forum after you've posted something, you'll have to use your bookmark of http://nowpublic.com/forum to get back. Within 24 hrs the actual place for the forum will be at http://nowpublic.com/newsroom.
Please feel free to begin posting whenever the mood strikes you. Normal rules of courteous civic discourse apply - no hitting or SHOUTING, etc.
The general idea: discuss issues that arise, build our knowledge base, make things better. Have fun.
I am so curious to see what happens!
