Nerf Reddit

Just joined Reddit. Seems I'm missing out on stuff going on over there, and also to show support to the Britnerf community. But.... I have no clue what I'm doing!

It appears to be a very simple forum. But what's Reddit points or Reddit gold? Everyone has a Nerf blaster after there name, minus UKNW and Foam Data who proudly wave the community flag. There is like 100 reply buttons on each page, so which do I press to reply to the OP as he appears to be the only person without one!

For an IT tech I am so out of touch with social media sites and the like!

Ignore Redit gold. Reddit points and upvotes are largely cock IMO, but it does meen popular topics stay on page 1 for longer.
You can select your "flair" a.k.a the Nerf blaster picture, in your profile. If you want the a Britnerf one then message LandgraveCustoms, he's one of the moderators, he will add it to your profile. It's custom.
If you click "comments" below the post title, it has a number after it, that's how many comments the thread has, you can then pick which comment to reply to. You can reply to as many comments as you like in any thread. People won't always like that, but you can.
If you make a general comment on the OP it will appear at the bottom of the page. If it's then upvotes it climbs up the thread just like the main pages.
It's ok, but regularly very annoying. I still prefer here.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. Reddit scares me too but I'm slowly getting there.

My main problem is that I'm not sure whether it is simpler than I think, or more complicated. For example, I know it uses a markdown sintax. I have no idea what that means but does that affect my ability to use reddit? I don't know that either.

I basically just type away and hope for the best.

Sounds like a plan.

Cheers guys. Might be simpler once I'm at a PC and not on a tablet.

One useful tip is this one for posting links.

Say I wanted to link something using words, it might look like this
[screw you gun nutters](

It would then not show the link, only the words in square brackets as the hyperlink. Great for catching people out and intentional link based humour.
