This is a list of tips and tricks to make your forum experience a little better.
I'll update this post with more as I think of them.
1, Forum skins.
Did you know you can change the look of the entire forum to fit your preference?
Check out all of the customizable skin options by clicking on your profile button on the top-right of the forums and click "settings" from the drop-down menu.
The skin options are the very first one on the list.
(Personally, I like dark-themed websites so I'm using "Darkly")
2, Profile Pages
Just like Facebook or any other social-media platform you can edit your public profile page to your liking.
To edit your profile, click on the very top-right button on this page and select "Edit Profile" from the drop-down menu. There you will find many options for customizing your profile including changing your avatar, your background banner image, and customizing your profile information.
TIP: I recommend not adding too much real-life information to your profile page for safety, and remember to abide by all forum rules listed here when editing your profile/signature.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What is the purpose of these forums?
A: We created the NameMC Community Site with the goal of creating a new place for Minecraft fans to get together and talk, meet new friends, work on projects, and just discuss whatever Minecraft-related content they want.
It's not an original idea, there are lots of forums and Minecraft communities out there, but we plan to continue updating ours with more and more social features to create something new and unique.
We hope you will join us and participate and make these forums awesome!
Q: I can see my email on my profile, can anyone else see it?
A: No, the little “eye” icon next to the email means it’s only visible to you.
Q: How do I create a forum account?
A: Forum accounts are linked to NameMC accounts. If you don't have a NameMC account, click here to create one. If you already have one, simply log in to NameMC and then return to community.namemc.com and it will log you in automatically.
Q: Who can I talk to if I have a problem with the forums/NameMC/BlockMania?
These rules apply to the entirety of these forums. Breaking these rules may result your posts being deleted/edited and/or your account being temporarily or permanently suspended from the community site.
1. Personal Information.
Posting personal information about another user is strictly prohibited and tightly moderated.
If you’re worried that someone else is posting your personal information on the forums and the content is not being moderated, contact a staff member.
No threats against the server, forums, or our staff.
Any threats (even vague ones or jokes) are taken very seriously. This includes but is not limited to: DDOS threats/conversation, “Dox” threats, death threats, etc.
3. No suicide jokes.
No threats or jokes related to suicide.
4. No racial slurs.
Self-explanatory. Google "define racial slur" if you aren't sure what this means.
5. Inappropriate usernames.
The NameMC Community Forums use a special type of registration system that requires you to use a real Minecraft IGN that you own as your username.
As such, some names may be deemed inappropriate for the forums. If your name contains any words or language that’s banned or restricted by any of the other rules listed here, then your name is considered inappropriate for the forums and we will ask you to use a different name.
6. Account buying/selling/trading.
We understand that trading of Minecraft accounts has become a considerable part of certain Minecraft communities, however, it is against Mojang’s Terms of Service and we cannot condone it.
Any threads/posts about buying/selling/trading Minecraft accounts, capes, etc. are not allowed on the forums and will be removed.
7. Forum Spam/Reputation Abuse.
Since apparently this isn't obvious enough I'll reiterate in more detail:
The reputation and anti-spam systems are in place for a reason. Do not make posts for the purpose of bypassing the spam system or abusing the reputation system.
Users violating this rule may have their reputation cleared, be temp-banned, or even perm banned depending on the situation.
This means: no "rep for rep" posts, no upvoting posts on your own alts (we can easily check), and no posts directly asking for upvotes or offering upvotes for no reason.
If you want reputation, make meaningful or fun posts, or better yet, help people with support questions if you know the answers.
I'm going to make it so users that self-regulate and support the forums by helping others will be rewarded much more than people that spam the off-topic posts or cheat to get reputation points.
[Note: These rules are a work in progress, we reserve the right to restrict anyone's usage of the forums if we believe they're having a negative impact on the community. This page will be updated often.]
