    General Forum guide/walkthrough for newcomers!

    Welcome to Era-go!


    This guide will be focused on helping newcomers that are interested in our forums and helping them understand how it works.
    I'd recommend you to read this to kick-start your journey into our welcoming community!



    Introduction
    First of all if you're here for the Free Event Coin,You must have the same email in game and when registering your forum account here.

    Alright for those who has no clue how to start but is interested in joining our community,Let us begin.
    There are 5 major Categories for the forums,and they are "Unstick me" , "Era Community" , "Creative Corner" , "Off-Topic Forums" & last but not least "Forum Administration"
    & within the categories there are sub-forums.



    FAQs:

    What are sub-forums?
    Well,Sub-forums are the parts of a forum itself,each sub-forum focuses on a certain subject.This makes the forum topics more organized!

    What are Sticky threads?
    a thread is stickied so that it stays at the top, regardless of how many people look at it. It's generally done to rules and posts that are particularly useful to the topic of discussion

    What are announcements?
    Announcements are messages posted by the administrator or moderators. They are a simple one-way communication with the users that you cannot reply to.
    They are usually covered with red at the top of a sub-forum. an example ->announcements,Sticky.PNG

    Profiles(DONE BY XSTARX)

    Player Profile- To view your profile, click/tap on your nickname in the very top part of the site. You will then see 5 boxes on the right which are My Activity, Visitor Message, About Me, Friends, Experience.

    My Activity: This function will show you what activities you’ve done on Era-Go so far. But they will only show what have you and other members has posted on in different threads.

    Visitor Message: This function allows you to see visitor messages on your wall. Most likely it’s similar to the PM system but it will be publicly shown to anyone who checks into your profile. ALL visitor messages will be noticeable by anyone, the only good feature it has is a more convenient way to talk to someone without PMing.

    About Me: This function is the easiest way to get someone to know who you really are. Once you click on it, you’ll know what to do on how you would like to let other’s know more about you. It is a simple system that enhances other’s to find you in-game and what you like to do etc.

    Friends: Basically you can add someone into your friends list by clicking/tapping on their profile>add as friend.

    Experience: This function allows you to see how much experience you have gained throughout the days you’ve been using Era-Go. Points are given when you completed the ones at the bottom of the page. You can see how to gain points by clicking on this link-> [http://www.era-go.com/forum/xperience.php?go=earn] You can also give Reputation to any user IF they have given a positive & helpful feedback on one’s thread. To rep someone, click on the noob head icon under the user’s post and then click ‘Approved’ then type in the reason(s) on why you are giving that person a rep.


    You can also edit your profile under Settings. You will then see many functions under My Settings on how to edit your Era-Go Account such as your profile picture(avatar),
    email & password etc.


    Inbox: This function just keeps all PMs you’ve received. You can create your own inbox by going to Edit Folders and then you can customize on how you would like the folder to work.

    Ignore List: If you ever have an issue with somebody or you just think he/she is annoying, you can click/tap on that person’s account and then click on Add to ignore list and they will ask “Are you sure you wanna add” etc. It is YOUR choice, it’s the safer way to prevent yourself from getting harassed and so on.

    Signature: The signature function is the most useful thing you ever want to use. As you can see, under my post, there is a grey-white line drawn and then words are beneath it. That is my signature which I’ve written long ago. Signatures allows you to make yourself feel known to others and how you would like them to contact you and so on. You can put pictures inside it but do refrain from using BIG images. You can even put links such as to other websites(must NOT contain any sexual, inappropriate or harassing site) or how you want other’s to know what you usually do everyday.

    Player Statistics
    12345.jpg
    This is where you can check out How many players are online,How many guests/members & you can have the list of who is currently online(Provided that they do not appear offline)
    This can be found at the most bottom of the Homepage of the Forum right under the "Forum Administration" section.

    Conclusion
    I hope this has helped you in your journey in joining the era-go community and clarify a whole lot.Remember this is only a generalized step-by-step guide and not an in-depth one.

    My nonchalant attitude is vivid.
    You can call me a critic because I couldn't care less.
    Era-Go still has my respect, excluding the game alone.

    I don't intend to work for a game filled with petulant staff abusing their authorities.


    The community sure is sendentary.
