Important Forum Options


This guide will hopefully explain and bring attention to many of the options here on the forum. We'll try to explain as many of them as we can to make navigating and posting on Imagine that much easier. You may not have all of the options listed on your screen depending on your rank on the forum.

Post & Topic Options:

When you're in a subforum where you're allowed to make threads, you'll be able to find the button at both the bottom and top of the page on the left hand side. We bring attention to this option because it says post instead of topic/thread.

To reply to an existing thread click the button which is also found at the top or bottom of the page on the left side. Clicking this button takes you to another screen for typing and editing your post. We also have a Quick Reply option at the bottom of every thread for you to type up something without needing to load a separate page. Most of the buttons in the Post Reply are pretty self explanatory, so feel free to test those out by using the Preview option at the bottom of the post screen.

To Edit your post or Quote someone elses, use the and buttons.

Profile Options:

Inside the Profile option, there are eight categories. Information, Preferences, Signature, Avatar, Friends and Foes, Topic is being watched, Favorites, and Character Information.

Information is about you. Your contact info, location, gender, birthday, etc. Most of these options are optional, so only fill them in if you feel comfortable.

Preferences is all about how you want to view the forum and if and how others should contact you. Make sure you read through these options and set them how it best suits you.

Next is Signature. To use an image in your signature, you have to upload it somewhere else, such as Photobucket or imageshack. Make sure you check our Rules & Punishments for any additional information on our signature policy.

Right after that is Avatar. The preset size is 150 x 200 pixels for avatars. They can be smaller but never larger. Theres a Gallery of images which came with the forum, however they don't really pertain to our forum matter. You're welcome to look through them and pick one if you like.

Friends and Foes. This is explained in the option itself. Remember, adding someone to your Foe list means you won't receive PMs from them and may not be able to see messages they post on the forum.

Topic is being watched and Favorites are two places you can organized threads you've posted in or are interested in for easy reference.

Lastly we have Character Information, which is the section that I wanted to cover most. This category was added by the admins for you. Our first option here says "Eng. 1st Lang.?" This means "Is English your first language?". Due to space issues, it had to be abbreviated. If English isn't your first language, by selecting No here, it will let us know and understand better if your grammar is a bit confusing. Selecting Yes doesn't automatically mean you have to be a grammar wise, either. This is one of the three options which will show up on the side bar every time you post.

Preferred RolePlay is the RP section you like RPing in most. More RPs may be added to the list as they show up on the forum. Picking one over the other doesn't mean you can only RP there, its just a little tidbit of information to share. This is one of the three options which will show up on the side bar every time you post.

The rest is pretty obvious. Pick your favorite character or your main character and fill in their name, age, and a brief history. You can add an image on the left, too. Character Name is one of the three options which will show up on the side bar every time you post.

The Chatbox

At the top of the main page and on the Portal, we have the Chat Box. To get chatting, click the Log In button on the chat box. Once this loads you'll see a list of whos chatting or away. We recommend you check the "Auto refresh" box, too. At the very bottom of the page, you can see There are currently ? user(s) on the ChatBox : and a list of whoever is chatting. Use the Chat Box for fast, fun conversations, but remember... all rules apply there.
