Hello and welcome to MLP Forums! 

If you are a new member, you are in the right place. This is where you will find all the information you need for starting out.


‼ ANY INFORMATION ON THIS THREAD CAN CHANGE ‼

 

We do have rules here. You can visit our guidelines page to view them.

 

 

What should I do now?

All new users are encouraged to create a new topic in the Welcoming Plaza to let us know who they are! 

In order to create your own topic, click Start new topic, fill out required fields, and click Submit topic.

NOTE: THIS IS HOW YOU WILL CREATE TOPICS IN ALL AREAS 

 

 

Okay, now I want to start posting in topics!

To make a post, you must locate an umbrella topic. Click the umbrella topic and locate an existing thread you'd like to partake in. Scroll to the bottom of said thread and type your response. 

Example of an umbrella topic:

I am a blank flank?

Yes, you are. This means you have made less than 5 posts. No worries, though! The more you post, the higher in the ranks you'll be.

NOTE: NOT ALL SECTIONS INCREASE POST COUNT. THIS CAN BE EXPRESSED BY THE FOLLOWING GREEN TEXT.

I want to make my own thread but I don't know where it should go.

Umbrella topics have a description underneath them to give you an idea of what content should be posted there. Use these as an aide!

 USERS CANNOT REMOVE THEIR OWN CONTENT, PLEASE CONTACT STAFF TO DO THIS 

 

My thread was "locked". Why?

If a thread of yours has been locked, it means that staff have found it to be unsuitable for discussion. This can result from it going against a guideline, a larger version of that thread already exists, or it just not having potential to start a lasting exchange between users (which is what the goal of a thread should be here). If you simply want to say hello to others, share what you did recently, or share anything else more on a trivial spectrum, it would be better suited posted elsewhere. Locking threads is one way we keep the forums organized and it isn't anything personal!
