How do I post on this forum?

If you are a registered community member, you should see a "New Topic" or "Post Reply" button near the top of each topic. As of December 5, 2012, all members registered on or after this date will need to have their first post approved by a moderator before it shows up in the forums. This was changed to better prevent spam from being posted on the forums. Posts are usually approved within an hour but may sometimes take up to a day if you happen to post when no moderators are online checking the post queue. After your first post(s) is/are approved, you will no longer need to wait for moderator approval before posting on the forums unless an administrator decides to add you to that group because you weren't following the WolfQuest guidelines or were otherwise being inappropriate.

If you do not see a "New Topic" or "Post Reply" button, it could be because of three reasons:
1) You did not yet create an account or didn't log into the forum before looking through it. You can click on "Register" or "Log in" near the top right side of the forum.
2) The forum/topic you are looking at does not allow posting, because it has been locked or only administrators are allowed to post.
3) You registered as a COPPA member and did not return your signed COPPA permission form.

If you live outside of the United States, please send an e-mail to with your username, e-mail address, and the statement "I live outside of the U.S. and would like you to verify my location for COPPA." (or something to that effect) and we can try to verify your location and change your registration so you can start posting.

If you live in the United States and no longer have your COPPA form, please clearly write down on a piece of paper the following:
-your username
-your e-mail address
-your parent/guardian's printed name
-your parent/guardian’s signature
-date of signature
-the statement in quotes below
