How can I comment on a MAHB Blog post or library item?
The MAHB website uses the Disqus commenting system. Previous comments from other members and the form to submit your own comment will automatically load at the bottom of the post. To leave a new comment, you can log-in using your MAHB, Disqus, Facebook, Twitter or Google+ account. Alternatively, you can select “I’d rather post as a guest” and provide your name and email address. Your email will only be used to notify you if others reply to your comment, it will not appear publicly on the website.
I made a comment, but was notified that it was flagged or it did not appear on the site. What can I do?
Please contact us directly, we can work to get your comment cleared and visible on the site.
What do I do if my group is already signed up as a Node and I want to join?
Sign up as an Associate and log-in to your account. From the MAHB Node page, you can navigate to your group and click the button labeled [Join Node] on the right hand side.
What does “joining” a Node mean?
When you “Join” a MAHB Node you are expressing a shared interest in the Node’s work and the issues it is addressing. Some Nodes will have Node Forums for those who “join” to engage in an active discussion of the Node’s key issues. Other Nodes will use the MAHB site to post activity updates, if you “join” you can choose to be notified when new updates are added.
