Welcome! I'm new too. I have found it to be very helpful. You can post questions, vent, cry, celebrate. Great moderators too. Everyone is great in here.

Hi there, welcome to Prison Talk.

You can find the Connecticut forums HERE

A list of the acronyms you might come across can be found HERE

I remember being over-whelmed by the size of the site when I first came to PTO. So here are some "tips" to help ya out:

If you scroll down the Forum Index, you'll see all the forums we have available, many of which will pertain to you & your situation. Be sure to scroll allll the way to the bottom and back up, just to see all the forums we do have.

State/facility specific questions are usually best asked in that state's forum. Just read the descriptor that is beneath each forum title and you'll be just fine

Click on the forum title to enter the forum, then click on a thread title to read that thread.

Reply by either typing your reply into the "Quick Reply" box or click on “Go Advanced” at the bottom of the thread. To quote the post you are replying to, click on the “reply” button at the bottom of that individual post. To subscribe to a thread, use "Go Advanced" and there is the option to subscribe beneath the reply box.

To create a new thread, look at the top of the thread list in any forum for a button marked "New Thread", click on that and it will open a window where you can give your thread a title and type up what you want to say or ask.
When you are done, click near the bottom where it says "Submit New Thread" and your thread will be posted.

***If you ever have trouble finding a post you made, go to the upper right corner of the screen and click on your name. This will take you to your profile.
Then choose "Statistics", in that screen, click on "Find all posts by..." and you'll get a list of all of your posts/threads***

You can also "subscribe" to any threads you post in by using the "advanced reply" and scrolling just below the text box.

Lastly, for now, if you ever get a message saying that your post or thread has been moved, all you have to do is click on the thread title within that message and you'll go right to the new location of your thread or post.

Also, be sure to review our Posting Guidelines.

If you ever have any questions or concerns, feel free to pm me or any Moderator

A function that I find useful is the "View all new posts".

This can be found at the very tippy-top of the page. Actually in the boarder. In the very upper left should be a welcome message "bailey01, welcome back to PrisonTalk.com". Note that you must be logged in to see this!

Right next to that is the "View all new posts". Click on that and it will show you all the threads that have had new posts since the last time you logged in.

Thank you all for the help. This place is great but very overwhelming.
Still figuring it out.

Thank you though, you are all great!
