Part 1 - Getting Started

Posting and Topic Creation
Users are able to post in two different ways. Users may use the quick reply feature which is located at the bottom of every unlocked topic as long as the user as the permissions to post. Guests will not be able to post in any sub-forum. Users can also use the "Add Reply" feature by clicking on the "Add Reply" icon which is located on topics where the user can reply. This feature will not show if the topic is locked or is restricted to specific groups.

New Topic Icon:

Add Reply Icon:

Locked Icon:


To make topics you must be in a sub-forum. To create one you must click the icon that says "New Topic" which is located in sub-forums and topics. Making a new topic while viewing a specific topic will be separated from the topic that you were viewing.

Topic Icons:
- No new replies since last read

Friends
Adding people as friends on the forum is a great way to get closer to Clashers. To add a friend, you need to visit their profile. Once visited, you must hit the "Add to friendlist" text above the user's avatar, once you have successfully added the user, the user can either accept or decline the request. Another way to add users is by going to your own profile and en hitting "Friends"; there you can add users by searching their usernames.

When you receive a friend request, you will recieve a notification. If you go to your profile and then "Friends", you can also see pending requests and requests you have sent. If you would like to decline a request that you sent, you must go to your profile and then "Friends" to do so; just hit the minus icon.

Clashmune Chat
The Clashmune Chat feature is used to chat with Clashers from around the world that are registered on the forum. You may chat with users online similar to the "Global" chat on Clash of Clans except this one is moderated and checked frequently and it contains a more safe environment.

Accessing the Clashmune Chat is very easy and simple. You may access it on the top of the home page or you may hit the "Chat" text on the navigation bar at the top of the page and a new tab with open up where the Clashmune Chat will be a page's length.

Avatar
The avatar you use represents you. Users can see it on the "Memberlist", your profile, and in your messages. Youcan receive a personal avatar by spending Gold in the Graphic Request Section. You will get some amazing art there. If you do not like what the artist has made for you, you may simply ask for changes and the artist will critique so your request is made and you are happy. Please be as specific as possible when requesting so a Graphic Designer is more informed and can make more of what you want.

Example and default avatar:


Note: You may always change your avatar whenever you want, as long as it is appropriate and meets the forum rules. Inappropriate content in avatars will lead to warnings.

Visitor Message
The visitor message feature is a simple feature which allows users to leave messages on users' profiles. All registered users will be able to see. You may have conversations it's users by posting on users' profiles this way.

Users can choose whether to only allow friends to post on their visitor message feature or all users. For people who only allow friends to post on their profilel, you must be on their friendlist in order to post.

Graphic Request Section
The Graphic Design Section is a section where users can exchange their gold to request an avatar or signature. When sending a graphic request you must be as specific as possible and you must make sure you follow the requirements; to see the requirements check the Graphic Request Section.

Every graphic request costs 100 Gold whether it is for an avatar or signature, but you can only exchange Gold for a signature if you are a Platinum Member or if you have bought the rights to use a signature.

Graphic Request Example:
Guest wrote:
Nature of the Creation: Avatar
Size (in Pixels): 100x100
Main Color(s): Red and black
Pictures and Links: N/A
Text to Insert : Guest
Font (provide download link): Arial
Font Color: Purple
Extra Comments: A circular avatar with cool effects would be great please.

Signature
The reason for limiting users on requesting signatures in the Graphic Request Section is because to use a signature, you must exchange 100 Gold for it in the Gold Market, there is no reason to request for a signature if you can't use it yet. You can also request a signature if you are a Platinum Member which comes with other additional benefits as well.
