Hiya

as far as I've noticed there currently is not a long, large forum guide that contains all the information you might find useful as a forumer. With some complaints about other users' behaviour there are already some posts stating that F2P-access should be limited, moderation should be tougher, etc. It may be best in my eyes if there was at least a guide explaining the forums in all of its facets.

Since I've only been on these forums for in total maybe six months and since english isn't my first language and since it's a lot to write and I want others to contribute I've created this thread.

What I atm imagine to be the contents:
- forums' features (like pics, colors, etc.)
- bad-average-good(-excellent)-posts (with examples and different categories; what makes up a good (excellent) post)
- QFC's of threads you should read (mainly stickies through all forums - the most important ones for a new forumer)
- Quick help with bans/mutes/hijacking (Just a section about when and where to post with helpful links)
- Explanation to the Code of Conduct*

The guide should be written for any nooby and should also be helpful as a reference text.

The estimated length is 50 to 100 posts.

*The Code of Conduct has been shortend. Many cases are obvious and many times you easily find out why something was hidden when you look at the CoC but not always. For this part I needed an experienced forumer who has encountered some cases in which he/she didn't know why a post was hidden.

Does anyone want to contribute? Has anyone got contents suggestions?


That's it for the start. Since it may be a longer discussion and we might produce a text together in this topic I'll reserve posts on the first page.



Cheers

Liebster's forums guide


Welcome :) !


Welcome to my forums guide. It contains a lot of information so you might use the table of contents to get to the section that is most relevant for you as quick as possible. This guide is meant to be comprehensive so it should also serve as a reference book. Many of the information you find here has been collected from other stickies by other forumers. At the beginning of this guide you will find some quick help.

The quick help is meant for you if you simply have one certain issue you need help with.
