New forum!? Come here for a quick how-to...

Recommended Posts

Hi! 

So new forum? It's crazy different from last one no? Well, that's cause it's a bit more "professional". 

This forum is powered by Invision Power Board and it's self hosted. What does that mean you ask? Well, we are no longer restricted by anything other than what WE limit. So no server limits of ANY kind. 

Now let me just give you a quick tour on how to use.

The theme

This forum has two themes available for you to choose from, Light and Dark. To select either, scroll down to bottom of page and look to your left, you will see this:

Click on "Theme" and change to either the light or dark theme. Good? Great! Let's move on.

Profile Editing

As with any other forum software, IPB will let you edit your profile anyway you like. To do so is very simple, at the top of the page, you will see your display name (forum name) click on it and you will be given options, like so:

Of course, you won't see Admin or Mod CP unless you are either of those. With this menu open, clicking on "profile" will you to your profile page, here you can upload your avatar and background. Check who is following you, post a profile update, etc. Cool yeah? And account settings is where you can manage your account and link it (if available) to other social logins, change password, change display name (can only be done once every year) among other things. 

That is just SOME of the features are available here. So i urge everyone to check it out and spruce up your experience! :)

One thing to note is that signatures are contained within Account Settings and not the user profiles. Along with a section to change the display name, although that seems to be limited to once a year.
