If you would like to see threads from a specific forum category then look to the right hand column called "All Forums" and click on the forum category you would like to enter.

Edit allows you to add and configure your profile information. Once you click Edit it will take you to fill out your General Info. To edit your Business Info fields, click the "Business Info" button.

How do I send a private message?
You need at least **** points to send a private message.
What is a public message and how do I send one?
Public messaging is essentially like posting on someone's "wall" on Facebook. You can public message any other oDigger members by going to their member page and clicking the "Public Message" button.
This will take you to the Status Update field on your own member page with the name of the member you (@odiggermembername) prefilled in. Simply type your message and click "Post Update"
Alternatively, you can public message any oDigger member from your own member page by typing in @odiggermembername in your Status Update box.
When you public message someone, your message will post to their Mentions activity feed and (if they have their notifications configured this way) they will get an email alert of the message. Your public message will also be displayed and replace your "Status Update" field.
Posting Reviews and Comments
What are the guidelines for posting a negative network review?
If you are posting a negative review of a network then you must be specific about your negative experience. This way the network can address your experience and try to rectify it. Reviews like "Scam!" or "They suck" will be erased.
If a network owes you money, explain how much, when and what types of leads or sales you generated for them. Reviews that say "They scammed me out of $,2000 will also be rejected.
What are the guidelines for posting a positive / neutral network review?
Like posting negative reviews, the review must genuine and honest. Try to be specific about your experience and why you like the network. Reviews from member accounts with the same ip address (or if we suspect it is the same person) will be erased.
What is an oDigger Premium account?
You will see soon :)
