Today we’re starting up a new forum for readers of Apple World Today. Called AWT Chat, the forum is an open group for discussion of everything about Apple. To encourage you to join the forum, we’re giving away a prize to one of the early participants. All you need to do to enter is to join! Here’s how to do that:

AWT Chat Registration
Check the box to agree to receive an email confirmation with a link to set a password, then click the blue REGISTER button.
The forum software sends an email to you within a minute. If you don’t see it in your main email inbox, check your spam folder as this email sometimes gets tagged as spam.
The email looks similar to this:
Click the link in the email. This takes you to a page to create and re-enter a password. Do that, and then you’re ready to roll.
Edit Your Profile
Next, you can edit your profile! Add a photo or some other avatar, set your signature for posts, show people what you do for a living, link to your social media, and so on.

We don’t want AWT Chat to turn into a typical social media cesspool. The rule? Just be nice. We’re hoping the group will be self-policing.
