Um... Hello :)

Discussion in 'NEW ARRIVALS & DEPARTURES' started by VelvetVapress, Oct 8, 2016.

  1. I was told by a friend that I should try this out so I hope to enjoy a new experience and I am new to the whole thing though I have always wanted to try so let's have fun!
  2. Hello, @VelvetVapress and welcome to the site ^.^ You may not know it yet but you just enlisted in the bunny army >:{D If you haven't already go ahead and give the rules a once over, and if something on the site stumps you, we also have a nifty Help section ^.^ This is where you'll find the FAQ, and within the FAQ a list of Roleplay Tags, a list of the site's bbcodes, a link to the staff roster, and other insightful things. But if you can't find an answer to your question, need clarification, or found a bug, the Help Desk might be more your cup of tea.

    As a roleplayer, new or otherwise, you're always looking for ways to improve your craft and one of Iwaku's many goals is to help you with this :D Thus the Content page! Here you'll find forums dedicated to Roleplay Guides and places for users to commission and display their own works ^.^ But if you're more worried about actually roleplaying or need a place to start, we have the Roleplay Search page :) This is where you'll find Interest Checking and Creation where Game Masters posts interests check for their future roleplays and plot future roleplays. Roleplay Advertisement is where Game Masters advertise their running group, dice, or jump-in roleplays. But if you're a Game Master looking for players, there's always the Seeking Group Invites forum. This will allow you to browse users looking for group roleplays to join and snag them up for yourself! Last but not least is the Seeking One x One partners. If group roleplays are too main stream for you, set up shop here and look for someone of similar interests ^.^

    If you're wondering who I am, I am but only one of Iwaku's many staff members :D As the banner says, I'm part of the Community Maintenance branch and my job is to make sure all roleplays have their correct tags and prefixes, archive dead threads, and fix whatever you break :3 Other branches of Staff include the Security team, the users who make sure you aren't up to anything questionable, and the Content team, the users who make sure you're never bored!

    I hope to see you around the forums and may the muse be with you =^.^=

  3. Thank you :) I will be sure to check those out

  5. Welcome Velvet. Hope you have a good time here. :violet:
  6. Welcome to Iwaku Velvet :)
  7. Welcome, Velvet. Your friend was right! :D Roleplay is wicked fun and Iwaku is an awesome site. Thanks for joining us, and feel free to ask me, Nox, or any of our other staffers any questions you might have. We're all pretty friendly. :)
  8. Actually I do have one question on the ratings what do all the little images mean? There are so many and I can't seem to find where it tells me.
  9. If you hover your mouse over each one it will tell you what each means, but in case you're on mobile:
    The thumbs up is "like"
    The heart is "love"
    The star is "thank"
    The tool is "useful"
    The rainbow is "bucket of rainbows" (which can really mean whatever you want it to mean)
    The face with the tongue sticking out is "go home, you're drunk"
    The weird little keyboard face is "cat-like typing detected"
    The squiggly face is "WTF did I just read"
    The half-eaten cookie is "you get a cookie"
    The weird face-hugging monster is "you need a hug"
    And the grouchy face with the axe is "nice execution"

    The more random ones don't have a single, static meaning, you can use them however you like, really. :)
