The Support Thread
ask questions about how to do things
I am making this thread to help out those like me who still have not mastered all the knobs and levers of MyUMBC.
So here is how it is going to go (I Hope).
You ask your question to the community (other people on MyUMBC at the time). Hopefully someone who knows what you want to know will be on MyUMBC at the time and answer your question. I found that any question will be answered within about 1-2 hours at most (if you post at 1am then it may take 4-5 hours).
I am not restricting questions to just that of MyUMBC but any questions you may have because the title does say (The Support Thread) so you can ask questions about anything UMBC related or not.
Don’t know the best place to buy quality food near campus then ask it
Don’t know what movie to watch this weekend? Ask for reviews
The support is there all you need is a means of accessing it.
Now I will give you 4 things that I know how to do (now) so that the thread can get going.
