Posting on the Forums:​

Congratulations! You have set up your account to how you want, now to get yourself into the community, you need to start posting.​

To post a message, you simply need to find yourself a thread to send a message to. Browse through our many forums here. Look through our thirty-one different forums, find a thread to post on, and post something as long as it is relevant to the thread!

Please note that any posts that are irrelevant to the topic at hand will be removed, and you will be warned, both verbally and systematically. If continued, you will be banned off of the forums. Staff members will make the final decision on this.

UPLOADING A FILE: When you want to upload a file to the forums, click "upload a file" at the bottom, it should open your file directory, to which you find your file you want to upload (predominantly used for screenshots / pictures). You will be given an option to keep the file there - users will need to click the file to view it, put as a thumbnail - which is a small version of the picture, or as a full image - which is the full resolution as the picture uploaded. Click "preview" at the bottom to look at your masterpiece before posting! Have fun!
