Welcome to the forum! I've been on here a while now it's an amazing forum, met so many lovely people on here & helping to keep me sane on this crazy journey!
When you reply to any threads you will get email updates when people reply, you can click on the link and it takes you to it. You'll soon get the hang of it don't worry!
If you reply 'quote post' then it includes the particular message you are replying to if you want to reply to something specific.
If you have any probs or queries just ask, everyone is so friendly on here.
Congrats on getting your visa! I will update your details tomorrow when there are a few more to add.
