We are still working out the kinks over exactly where/how to conduct the game, but here are a few simple guidelines:

As gamemaster, I will make all incidental rolls for you (like perception tests and the like) and simply describe the result without bringing numbers into things. For combat, to make things go quicker (the biggest complaint against forum gaming), try to outline what you’ll do for the whole combat in specific terms for your first action or two, then in general terms for the entire fight in case you can’t be around as I run the encounter to its conclusion (for example “I’ll ready my shotgun and shoot the troll” covers your first action, and “I’ll keep taking people out with that, even if they come to melee” covers the rest of combat, as actions for reloading and such will be assumed. Also mention how offensive/defensive you intend to be, as that will help me allocate pool dice for you – like “I’ll try to dodge and take cover when needed” or “I’ll tough it out and rely on my aim to take people out before they can hurt me.”)

If you want to roll some tests for yourself, just post your roll result after your action description, like so: “5 Pistols + 2 Combat Pool = 3,3,5,4,2,1,9”
