- The forums website for EMC is used as a centralized location for players to engage with the Community.
Posting and Interacting(top)
Being active and posting threads (an original post for others to reply to) on the forums is easy. Simply select a Forum to post a thread in from the list provided, and then hit the "Post a new thread" button. Make sure you choose the section that most closely relates to your post, and check out any pinned threads for the section in which you want to post. Some, such as the auction sections, have special rules.
Creating new threads isn't the only way to discuss things. You can also reply to already created threads to engage in discussions. If you want to directly reply to someone, simply hit the "Reply" button in the boxes of what people have said.
To edit what you have previously written, click the "Edit" button. Please note that you cannot do this in the Auctions forum. To have a thread re-titled, moved, or closed, report it using the "Report" button while making sure you put all the details of what you want changed as the reason.
To post an image, you must first upload it to a 3rd-party site. The most popular site for uploading pictures is Imgur. Once your image is uploaded, you can get a link to the image. Paste this link into the image button in the text editor (the icon has a tree) to insert it.
Please be sure to follow all the EMC and Forum rules when posting pictures, as well as when using the website.
You can change your alerts settings on your Preferences page.
Following other members(top)
If you visit other members' profile pages, you have the option to follow them. Following a member means their Forum activity (New threads, replies, status and likes) will show up in your News Feed, which can be easily accessed by hovering your name on the top left of your screen, then clicking the "Your News Feed" button.
Using BB Codes(top)
To create a spoiler, which will hide the content inside it unless it is clicked, simply type this:Code:
[SPOILER]Your text goes in here[/SPOILER]
If you wish to mask a URL with different text, type this into your post:Code:
[URL=The URL]The masking text. E.g. Click here[/URL]
The maximum size of the box is 794 x 150 pixels, however, single images will automatically shrink to fit. The private message signature box is 562.22 x 150,
To prevent other people's signatures from appearing for you, uncheck the box on your Preferences page.
Avatars (profile pictures)(top)
- https://empireminecraft.com/account/avatar or choose 'Avatar' on the drop-down menu next to your name on the top-right of the site
If you are not able to upload an avatar because its file size is too large, try a different file type, or try using one with less detail and fewer colors.
Profile pictures must be at least 192 x 192 to fit on your profile page but 200 x 200 is the recommended size.
