KYOTO Forum Help

Here is a brief tutorial on how to use KYOTO Forum (Forum main page).
The KYOTO Forum is the official public discussion board of the KYOTO Project.
The KYOTO Forum is composed by two global groups of discussion:
Each specific discussion on the KYOTO Forum is referred to as a thread. Each thread must is contextualized and thus placed into one of the two sections of the Environmentalists Forum and the Engineers Forum groups of discussion. Each thread is composed by a introductory text that describes the topic that should be discussed, followed by one or more replies of KYOTO Forum users, referred to as posts.
Users can access to the KYOTO Forum as non-authenticated ones (Guests) or, after providing their username and password, as authenticated users. Only authenticated users can open new threads in the KYOTO Forum or send a post to reply to a particular thread. If you are not registered to the Forum click on Register on the Forum main page (or click here to register). 
Non-authenticated users can only browse all the threads of the KYOTO Forum.
Each user, after providing his username and password and thus after his authentication, can also:
