How To Read and Reply To Post
One of the first things that new members have a question about is how to read and reply to posts in the Walt’s Basement forum. Quite simple... And I am here to help you on your quest for WB posting greatness!
All people who visit our forum can read any post they find there, but to reply to it you must have a membership in Yuku. It is free, and very easy. Once you have joined Yuku, you can post to your heart's delight, remembering to follow our forum's guidelines and policies for posting as we are a family friendly forum.
Starting with the main forum page, WaltsBasement.yuku.com you will see listings of the different “rooms” or forums in the Basement. Don't be intimidated thinking you can't find what you want. So let me share the lowdown on the different areas and what you will find in them. Click on the “room” you wish to enter, and come on in! You can access daily Disney news and reports from our own Walt’s Basement Reporters, Games for fun and Contests for PRIZES to Arts and Crafts and Cooking tips and recipes... This is just a part of what you will find in Walt’s Basement.
