New Forums!

edited April 2015 in Staff Announcements
We are still figuring out how these work and shaking the bugs out.  Feel free to reply here if you encounter problems with the forums.

Roleplay Forums are In Character (IC).  Discussion forums are Out Of Character (OOC).

Here are some tips for getting the most out of the forums:

  • Choose titles for your posts that are clear and concise.
  • When starting a new discussion, ALWAYS make sure it is being posted in the correct category.
  • When starting a new discussion, ALWAYS make sure it is being posted in the correct category!!!
  • You can mention others. To let someone know you are talking about or too them put the @ symbol before the username. They’ll get notified when you do.
  • Update your notification settings. You’ll receive a notification if someone mentions you or posts to a discussion that you’ve bookmarked. You can set notifications from your edit profile page.
  • You can publicly post a comment to someone’s Activity Feed on their profile page. Remember, these are comments can be seen by everyone. You can private message members too, or check your messages by going to your “inbox” in your personal menu.
  • Bookmark a discussion (click the star) to get notifications for new comments. You can edit notification settings from your profile.
  • Check out the forum from your mobile phone. It should work in your smartphone browser without needing a special app.
  • Want to embed content? Our forum should support automatic embed for Twitter, Pinterest, Vine, YouTube, and Vimeo. Just paste in the url of the content, and we will do the rest.
  • Markup your posts with the editor bar (or simple HTML tags) and preview your comment before posting.
  • Don’t forget to add a picture to your profile.
  • Use the search before you ask a question, you might be surprised to find the answer.
  • Signatures have a specific format.  Signatures are the only way we
    have to help people keep track of PCs, NPCs, and staff members.  I know
    this is different from many other forums, where signatures are a
    playground of personal whimsy.  If it helps, don't think of it as a
    forum signature.  Think of it as an ID badge that becomes your access
    pass to the forums.


  • Most important of all, have fun and DON'T BE A DICK!

  • For the love of baby goats bouncing on trampolines, ALWAYS check to make sure you're posting a new discussion in the category you intend!  It would really be a pity if your super-secret House-Members-Only information were to be posted to, say, the staff announcements board.  Just sayin'.
