How do I make a post?

I keep getting asked to serve on some type of jury. I think before I answer that I should know how to actually make a post. Amirite? 🤘🏾

1. If asked to serve on jury, 'accept,' and follow instructions.

Post not necessary.

2. To start a post, select a forum then click Start a Discussion.

For example, if you want to start a thread in the DU Lounge forum, click the forum on the left side of the screen (under Main), then when the forum pops up, click the big blue Start a Discussion button.

You don't need to post to serve on a jury, however.

3. Is this a joke? You've been a member since 2003. What am I missing?

11. Well, all right. You have to send your post to the "Post" address on the home page.

Make sure to put TWO stamps on the envelope. For some reason it doesn't get there if you don't.

Enclose a check for $11.

When Shirley gets the mail, she'll sort it into topics and then she'll post it in the right place. She's usually pretty quick. Unless the grandchildren are over or Arthur is having trouble with his gallbladder.

As far as the jury, did you do something wrong? I don't know about that one. You're on your own.

4. Well, you ust made a post so you have that figured out

A jury request is because a post got alerted on. You get to decide if the post reported violated Democratic Underground Terms of Service.
If the majority jurors on that post rule it violated the TOS the post gets. If not the post stays.

5. No, no. First you must serve on a jury. Then you can post.

So, go down to your county courthouse and knock on the door that says "Jury Entrance". Once inside tell them you are with Democratic Underground and you need to serve on a jury so you can post. Once you get out of jail go back home and you should be able to login and post.
Your welcome.

Method 1 Setting the Post in Soil or Gravel

Choose a durable fence post. ...
Prep the wood against moisture (optional). ...
Dig the hole. ...
Drop gravel into the hole. ...

Fill the hole with tamped crushed stone or soil. ...
Finish with a small hillock.

According to your profile you've made 2,842 over the last 16 1/2 years.

Sarcasm maybe?
