    With this new change from OPLegends introducing Forums I'll explain how it works. I've seen some confusion on how it works so I'll try to explain it the best I can.

    NOTE: If you're confused about one thing, you can do Ctrl + F and search it.


    Home Page: Main Threads


    To ease some confusion, we will break it down into parts. When looking at the very home page (oplegends.com/forums) you'll notice a lot of bigger columns which can be overwhelming. These are where the main categories/threads are. Below, you'll see all of the listed categories currently.

    ====================================================================

    Home Page: Staff Online



    To the right of the categories is the Staff Online section. This is just telling you if staff are currently browsing forums. If you click on a staff members, it'll show basic information like what they're looking at, the rank they are, when they joined, etc.

    Home Page: Members Online



    Under Staff Online there is Members Online. This is showing you the members on the forums website currently. At the top shows you who you're following, then the members who have made an account that are online, then finally the total users online.

    Home Page: Latest Posts

    Latest Posts shows you the Latest someone has posted or replied to a specific thread. Latest posts go from top to bottom.

    Home Page: Profile Posts

    Profile Posts is simply a status posting place. Everyone will see it and it's just a way to see how people are doing. Newest Profile Posts go from top to bottom.

    Home Page: Inbox & Alerts

    Inbox

    Inbox is for receiving messages in conversations from other forum members.

    Alerts
    Alerts are where all notifications take place. Every post you reply to and every thread you make it automatically set to watch that thread. It can sometimes get annoying so you can simply go to that post and click "Unwatch" next to to the name.

    How To Post?

    You've learned about the basics, but how do you actually post a thread?

    First find a Main Category you want to post in. (Ex. "What do you like better Cats or Dogs?" would go in the category Off-Topic)
    Then, simply click on Post thread and write your question(s) or whatever you want.

    Forums can be complicated just by looking at it but you get super familiar with it pretty quickly and it can have fun reading everyone's ideas/topics which makes forums what they are meant for.


    If you have any questions scroll down and reply to this post. Thanks. :)
