The best way to get your start on Wayside is divided into three main areas:


  1. Look at recent stories and conversations on the home page; click on them to read more and comment.
  2. Choose an area of interest from the various Conversations forums (found in the top menu on every page), as well as in the right-hand column on many pages
  3. You may start a new conversation under any forum. It’s always good to make a quick check to see if others are already discussing your topic.

    Your Settings:
    If you subscribe to any area of Conversation, you will be notified by email in a daily digest of any new topics as they are started. You can easily adjust your email frequency under My Account/Profile—see more information here.
