How To Connect In Community
The easiest way to find and connect with members is to use members menu at the top of the Community.
If you click on "members," you will be taken to the members search page.
Here you see a list of all members of the Blackbaud Community.
The filters default to "most recent," which means that the members that appear on this page, are the most recent members to the Blackbaud Community.
You can filter the members list in several ways, located on the left-hand side of the page, including by: product/solution interest, job role(s), organization type, organization name, and by location.
Once you've found the members you'd like to connect with, just click on their name and then click "connect."
It is that easy!
Finding Members from the Members Tab in a Product Community
Navigate to a product community using either the "My Products" list on your MyCommunity Dashboard or using the Products Menu at the top of the site. Once you are in a product community, locate the members tab in the product-specific navigation and click it.
The product members page show you only people who are members of that specific product community, as well as members who have earned their Blackbaud certification in that product.
Once you've made new connections, feel free to write a quick note to say "Hi!" on their profile wall and introduce yourself.
You can even browse the new members daily, click on their profile, and welcome them to community by writing on their wall.

I fidn that there are two annoyances with the Community boards in general:
1. There is no auto-spell check. Consequently, a lot of posts - including my own - end up with prases ike tihs. Auto-correct is pretty standard these days so it'd be good to have it implemented here.
2. The browser Back button takes you to the root page of the board, not back to where you were. This is especially annoying if you're on, say, a post on page six on the My Topics tab; you have to wade through to get back where you were.
Anyway, those are my sticking points. Hopefully others might agree and they can be sorted out.
