When you are new to an online community it can be hard to figure out where to get started. I recently published a post titled: [url=https://next.nutanix.com/welcome-11/i-m-new-here-how-do-i-get-started-27658]I'm new here, how do I get started?[/url] and the intent is to help you find your way around the online community. Once you are familiar with the forums and categories, you might still not be sure where to jump in and ask a question, where to start a conversation or better yet who you can help with your experience and knowledge. The simplest way to find out whats on the mind of other community members is to view the 'Recently active' topics.

One of the features you see a lot of on social media sites are @Mentions. With @Mentions you can acknowledge other community members in your replies and add members into your posts.When browsing discussions forums and you see one you know Mike can answer, for example, you can reply to the post and mention Mike who may be able to provide some additional insight to the question.The way it works is pretty simple, let's say that you want to recognize or thank someone for the answer that saved your weekend. Just enter their username, preceded by an "at" symbol (@). As you begin typing, a pop-up menu will offer suggestions of users to choose from. You can either continue typing the name or select a name from the list. This is a great way to get more personal in your posts and discussions. I encourage you to try it out today. Look for more 'Did you Know...' posts and thanks for contributing to the community.See you in the forums!
One of the fun things about participating in an online community is developing a community identity. One way to do that is with a personalized avatar. You can have lots of fun with this, as it can give folks a sense of your personality. I found in the past people like to either add a real picture of themselves or a fictional character or someone they wish they could be, like Iron-man for example. Great way for others to get to know you Express your creativity, and upload an avatar that you think best suits you or just add an updated image of yourself. Follow these steps to get started: Once you've logged in, click your current profile image and then select settings. Then click the edit next to your current avatar and select your preferred avatar. The recommended image size is 150 x 150 px - Once chosen remember to click save changes at the bottom. ProTip - Fill out some of the other fields in your profile. There you have it now, and as you are more active in the

It also helps me connect people who may have similar interests, and can benefit from sharing their experiences. I thought this would be a great place to share what you are working on, get introduced to the community and let us know how we can help. Add your comments below, and let's begin the conversation.
