Welcome to the ChatChief.com community!

Here's a quick guide to help you join in on the discussion.

Customizing your front page:


Upon signing up, you are directed to a page which allows you to choose exactly which channels/subforums display on your front page, as well as the position that they appear.
The forum functions a little differently to others alike.

There are:
Channels (eg. Chat Section)
Subforums (eg. News)
Tags (eg. Serious)

Within Channels are the subforums. Clicking a channel on your front page will display a thread list containing the subforums that exist within it. You’re also able to click an individual subforum and view their threads. Tags indicate the nature of a thread, and you’re also able to click one and be directed to a thread list containing all tags inside of it. For example, posting in the Explorer subforum will require you select one of the explorer branches (eg. Warrior) , and by clicking on a Warrior tag, you are directed to a thread list containing all other threads with the Warrior tag.

Click here to read more about tags.

Submitting threads:


Submitting a thread is simple. You can access a button on the left of your front page, or easily access through the header. Creating a thread will require you select a Channel, a Subforum, a Tag, a Thread Title, a Description and whether you would like to include a poll. You can then select a smiley which will display next to your thread on the thread list page.

Submitting Media (Images/Videos):


Similar to posting threads, you’re able to access this through either the sidebar or the header. You must select a Category, Title, Description and Select if you would like your image to possibly be featured on the front page (or simply go directly to your profile).

Click here to read more about submitting media.

Uploading an avatar:


You’re still able to upload directly from the MS rankings by simply right clicking the image and copying the URL, but for those who would like to show off their creativity without the cost of NX, feel free to upload your own avatar.
Download this template and ensure that your avatar is aligned to it, then upload it in your settings page. The avatar will be approved by a moderator shortly.

Cookies:


For those familiar with reddit, cookies are essentially reddit gold. They’re an alternative when simply ‘liking’ a comment isn’t enough, which will help pay for the servers of the site. Users who receive a cookie will gain many new features, some of which include:
- Posting images in the OP
- Access to a super-secret cookie subforum which may or may not exist.

Profiles:


- Featured image

Want some exposure on your youtube channel or a piece of art? Through the settings page you’re able to upload either an image or post a video URL, which will be displayed on your profile page. Images are approved before they appear on your profile page, while videos are instant.

- Activity Stream

Your activity throughout the site will display here. Post a thread? Left a comment? Liked an image? This information will display here, allowing your followers to see what you have been up to.

- Featured Thread

So, that thread you posted didn’t get as many replies as you had hoped. Well, it will now be featured at the top of your profile page! Anyone who visits your profile will now see (and hopefully click) your thread, gaining more exposure.

- Commenting


Word Filter:


I know the frustration that a word filter may cause; I’d love to have none at all. The only issue is that many advertisers require profanity to be non-existent to display their ads. The site wouldn’t be possible without ads.

Feed:


If you visit a users profile you will notice a follow button under their name. This button will allow you to have their profile comments and latest images/videos displayed compacted into one simple page.

Settings:



Private Messaging:


Similar to the maple chat system, you’re able to send messages with ease.

Subscribed Threads:


Have a thread you check up on regularly? Avoid the hassle of finding it every time and subscribe. Click on the ‘Subscribed Threads’ text on the front page to display more than 5.

Front Page:


- Bump System


I realise that the userbase of MS is dwindling, and have corrective measures planned for the site if needed. Depending on the success of MS2, the site may convert over from MS1, or possibly into a general gaming forum. However, these changes will not occur until the community is satisfied and has helped with a decision. You, the community are what run this site; so I want to make sure that any large changes are passed by you before being implemented.

V was here. <~ He really was!

Rule 6 I guess basically means don't go around cussing/cursing like a drunken sailor seeing how rule 2 already address the language already but how do you feel about such words being used for casual conversation and not meant to be taken offensively? For example someone says they got disconnected right before they could grab a rare drop. Would it be fine to say "damn, that sucks"?This is the internet but at the same time some sites owners like to enforce hash/strict rules to allow a more kid friendly forum. I think you should add more details as some people see some words as being cleaner then others. There is also a slight typo with rule 6. You just missed the period key and key the backslash key instead.I would've PMed all of this to you but for the life of me I can not find a PM button on your profile page and there wasn't a simple compose button on my messages page. I also would've posted this on the rules thread but it seem like no one but you can post on it.

Feel free to delete this message but right now this site isn't really user friendly so you hopefully can't blame me for posting this here.

Firstly, welcome to the site! It's currently in beta, so bugs are everywhere. :p
I see no problem at all with "damn, that sucks". The rules are more of a placeholder at the moment, they definitely need to be refined. If I could, I would allow swearing outright. As mentioned in this thread, the only issue is that many advertisers require profanity to be non-existent to display their ads.
I'll get to adding a compose button really soon! Just need to tackle some of the other bugs beforehand.
As of now, you can PM anyone by finding a comment of theirs, clicking the + in the bottom right and then clicking PM.

I remember months back when the site looked nothing like this and only had a handful of users. You were advertising in YMCK and I added you to my friends list but you probably don't remember me. I'm impressed!
