THE FORUMS: Inside and out

  • Creativity Cafe ☕

    This topic is created to help not only new users, but even older users understand the forums in more depth.

    Before I get in to it, if any of your topics plan on falling under any of these, don't post them. There are already places for these.

    How To Guides:

    Welcome to the Nilly's Realm forums! I'm going to quickly explain how the forums work, and where and what you should post and why! If you happened to be directed here, then you may need some help understanding how the forums work. I'm going to link the correct use of each section with the header so you can click on it as an example for the correct kind of post for that particular category. I'm going to start off with the categories!

    0_1467084767669_upload-14707a6e-7186-4960-81b5-ea282f9861c4 Patch Notes

    Patch Notes, the category, was created as a way for nilly to update the community on recent additions and changes done to the Nilly's Realm private server. You can not, and I repeat, can NOT upload topics here. You can, in some cases, post in the currently existing topics if they are pinned.

    0_1467084801354_upload-1f0949be-ed3d-4ad1-bfe2-f0352cab9e24 Discussion

    Discussion, the category, was created as a way to bring up a topic and discuss it as a community.
    Discussion if often misused and people dump wortheless topics incorrectly in it. Here are a few cases were it was used incorrectly. (Their category placement may of changed after I uploaded this topic)
    (1) (2) (3)
    The third example has strong language and may be toxic to some users.

    0_1467084838568_upload-b513093f-6786-434a-a593-4b5985a92bbd Suggestions & Feedback

    Suggestions & Feedback, the category, was created for the community to suggest improvements and additions they would like to be implemented into the game. If their idea is liked by the community and the Nilly's Realm staff then their ideas might be added into the game and mentioned in the category Patch Notes. This category is rarely used incorrectly, but when it is then you see some really stupid topics.

    0_1467084923077_upload-0f95a99c-0bdc-40cb-9c47-3bdb51add608 Downloads

    Downloads, the category, was created for the ability for the community to share Downloads they either created or found. It may be risky to download things off this section. Do so at your own risk. Do not post ANY topics in this section until you read this!

    0_1467084948738_upload-c6e261c4-31b7-4a4f-9827-550349e9f414 Design Ideas Section

    Design Ideas Section, the category, was created as a way for the community to post ideas of their designs for items, bosses, maps and ect. to improve and add on to the Nilly's Realm private server. This category is oftenly confused with Suggestions & Feedback, so please try to understand the differences between them and don't make the same mistake others do.

    0_1467084972625_upload-178d69cd-4c18-4f32-83ce-1eac02d551af Help & Requests

    Help & Requests, the category, was created as a way for the community to ask questions to not only the Nilly's Realm staff, but also others in the community aswell. This is where you ask questions, not the category How To !

    0_1467085018591_upload-8e1938ef-87d3-4ba5-8129-27c34c743fcc How To

    How To, the category, was created for members of the community to create topics to help explain certain things. It was created to answer questions, unlike Help & Requests which was created to ask questions.
    Please do not get these two mixed up! If you don't understand the difference, message me directly so I can explain it for you.

    0_1467085057460_upload-8d746c1b-1579-4d86-9729-3a140af08e9c Trading Post

    Trading Post, the category, was created as a way to create trades, usually between games or real life, outside of the Nilly's Realm private server. This category is for trades and topics strictly related to trades.
    If you have any questions about trades, please post them in Help & Requests.

    0_1467085089266_upload-e69af2ac-da28-4409-b10d-b73fd2fe5ad3 Guilds

    Guilds, the category, was created for the community to advertise their guilds or their desire to be in one. You can also post guild related discussions here. Please do not get this mixed up with Discussion.
    Here are two 'popular' guilds as of now that I know of: (1: Everlasting Destiny) (2: Gronda's Queendom)

    0_1467085107314_upload-ce23858d-6d0e-47af-bafc-fa31c5bad096 Whine Cellar

    Whine Cellar, the category, is a place created purely for the people who need to vent out their frustration. If it is based of a angry non sensible complaint, or generally just all caps and rage emojis, then it belongs in the Whine Cellar. Please for the love of god don't post here with anything related to the Wine Cellar. Also just because its the Whine Cellar doesn't mean you can shitpost here. If you still don't have a reason to post, then you're still shitposting.

    0_1467085128801_upload-2bdd74d5-f1f5-40af-be3f-2d8047fc5a9a Off-Topic

    Off-Topic, the category, was created for the community to talk about things not specific to Nilly's Realm
    Off-Topic is one of the most commonly used categories on Nilly's Realm and if your post doesn't fall under any of the previous categories then it should fall into Off-Topic.

    Those are all of the categories of Nilly's Realm forums.


    Next I'm going to touch up on those buttons on the top of your screen.
