Default Welcome all new members!

First, glad you found us. And, welcome to the family.

It seems there has been an awful lot of new folks lately. I mean brand new to this life, not just PTO. I just wanted to say a little hello and give you some things to help get you started.

No matter how long you're with us there is bound to be more than one time you'll need some assistance on this forced road we've all found ourselves on, so don't hesitate to ask if you can't find the answer.

The admin encourages everyone to find (and put to good use) the 'search' feature located on most every topic here at PTO. PTO can't do you much justice if you don't find some time to just plunder around. Go to the top of the page and click on each item to see what it does or where it takes you. You can always hit the back button if you get lost. Being able to navigate your way around is one of the first things to learn so you know where to go for what it may be you are looking for...PTO is vast, and it can be daunting to new users, but with a little practice and use, you'll have it down in no time at all.

Sometime you may have a question on PTO policy, you can find that here.

I was here for about two years before I learned there is more to PTO than just the 'new posts' page. Yeah, really. If you go here: http://www.prisontalk.com/forums/ you will see the list of all the threads on PTO. There are too many threads to list...just go see if you haven't already found this page. Heck, with all the new stuff new members may go to that page...I dunno, just thought to include it 'in case'.

If you want to check on the threads you have responded to or created click on 'Quick Links' then 'Subscribed Threads'.

And, whatever else you do, please don't forget to bookmark us or add PTO to favorites.

Also, I've included some outside links you will probably need on occasion or just be interested in...

FDOC website homepage:

FDOC Correctional Facilities:

Please know the FDOC website won't tell you everything you need to know, and the very first rule you'll no doubt learn very quick is any and everything is apt to change with the wind...that's where PTO can be a big help....so, get a cup of your favorite brew, kick your feet up and join us for a while.

Here's to hoping PTO makes your 'walk on the wild side' as smooth as possible.
