New to the forums. How do i engage with a community?


hmm t i r e d
I'm new to the forums, but i'm not sure how to properly engage with the community.
I'm a very introverted person and i've always had a lot of trouble to socialize with others. Ofcourse, on the internet it feels a lot easier, but it still tends to feel a bit intimidating for me. It does take a while for me to get comfortable.
It's also the first time i'm on a forum in general, and i'm not quite sure how it works.

I'd love to get to know you guys! :)

Read threads that seem interesting or entertaining, and contribute your own experience/opinions when you feel ready to do so. There’s no shame in lurking for periods of time if you don’t feel there’s anything you want to say at the time.

I just comment under anything I find interesting.

I occasionally check the unanswered threads tab if there's nothing, to see if stuff has flown under the radar

I also post on my profile every now and then but nobody seems to engage with that :/ I do try myself to reply to people's profile posts
I didn't even know about the filter tab i'm so blind hjfsjhdfs
Thank you for sharing these wise words <3
