I will try to highlight different features and options on the forum and offer any assistance I can to users who may be new to forums such as this.


Getting Started.

The FAQ: At the top of the board in the main title menu there are a number of options. [ Search, Members, FAQ, Laws of Minus, Citizens of Minus ]. Hitting FAQ will take you to the forum help section which can assist you with some, not all the board features. If that does not offer any help then please feel free to post here or ask for clarification on something.

Full BBCode List: This involves options such as [(B)] for bold, [(I)] for italic, [(U)] for underline etc which show up whenever we post on the forum. If you notice when you start or reply to posts a menu appears over the writing box area where we type our messages. Under the buttons for these options is another called "Full BBC List". Clicking on this option will bring up the full list of codes that can be utilized in everything from displaying images in our posts, to creating horizontal lines, or even embed Youtube videos. Check it out, you'll learn all about the different ways we can arrange our posts.




Board Features:

Member Blogs: Members can make individual blogs that are built into their profiles. Here they can keep scripts or a diary of sorts, even controlling who gets to see the blog and who may comment on entries. To begin creating your blog go to [Preferences] at the very top of this menu and after being taken to your User Controls, click "My Blog". From there you will be prompted to input details like what you want your blog to be called and who may view it.

Roleplay Credits: Each board member who post scripts will begin collecting what are called Roleplay Credits. These credits are listed in our profiles. Some browsers may not recognize the script which activates this feature so if you cannot see your credits, please contact the RC (Cimber) and he can tell you your balance. Each approved citizen of Minus and their slaves receive 15 credits upon joining. To read about what these credits are good for, go here:
Dice Roller: The forum has a built in dice roller. It appears when we go to post or reply to a topic or thread. To use the dice click the option [ROLL] and in the pop up window that appears you may enter how many sided dice you want to use. The code for determining the sides is as follows: 1d100 = 100 sided dice. 1d1000 = 1000 sided dice. 1d6 = 6 sided dice. So on and so forth. After inputting any variation of that code into the window, you hit [OKAY] and the code will then appear in your post frame. Once you [Hit Reply] the dice roll and the outcome will appear in your new post. Some browsers do not recognize this code very well (IE) so not all users may be able to use this option.
