I've read that no one has any idea what's going on with the brownie points. Any idea who to ask that's "higher up"? Maybe it's just a hoax to get interractions on the site? Since I'm new to the site,

Since I'm new to the site, does anyone have any tips for using the site? Or things they've found to make site navigation easier?

Welcome Heather -- don't worry about the brownie points.  Most of us have been using this site to learn and have fun for well over a year.
There's sure no such thing as a "hoax" and we're the ones who enjoy the interaction Laughing.

Once a month you can get nice coupons..... just click on the "Coupons and  Promotions" link that's right above on the right.

Welcome to the VBB site Heather!!  Not long ago the site was completely revamped and some of us are still trying to navigate the new style!  This is a great forum with great bakers comments!!  Nice group of posters.  Laughing

Welcome Heather
Some of us don't really worry about brownie points but just enjoy the site for the info, recipes and just plain friendly interaction with all the great people who love to bake.
We hope you enjoy participating.  It is addictive.

Heather,
It is good to get some new blood in the mix. You will enjoy reading the views of the wonderful VBB and you will find that they can be helpful with hints on how to improve on almost anything. I have learned some neat things and love the camaraderie.

Heather, there's a feature called My Recipe Box (see the top of the screen) where you can post your own recipes and share with the community. It was 'hung up' for awhile and just started working again this week. If you have any recipes to share this would be a good place to post them.

Thank you, I wasn't sure exactly how that worked, but then again I haven't gotten to play around with the site too much yet either. Thank you!

Hi Heather!  You can collect recipes you like for future reference or print them out to use now.  They are very easy to keep up with when you know they are on the computer at this site.  You never have to worry about them getting missplaced.  Of course, if I were more organized I might not ever have to look for anything.  LOL
As far as the points go, I keep hoping one day we can use them to "buy" baking items or even coupons for products.

Welcome Heather..
I do hope you will "play around" with the site and find it easy enough to work with.  Any questions I am sure someone will help out but you can also post questions in the section Ask Very Best Baking.  For a quick answer when you post mark it as a question.  See the little box at the upper right when you are posting?...well click on that and it will be flagged as a question and you will get an answer. 
Not to be pushy but if you have any great Chocolate recipes please post them.....
