Questions About The Site!

Why Does This Site Have Deities?
For fun! Why does the Sonic Series have their own Deities? Purely for entertainment purposes. Our deities are mainly NPC's that may give out blessings or curses to a certain character (PS: The curses and blessings are for fun. They won't alter your character's design at all), or they just may help them with whatever they're doing! Again, these guys are only for fun and entertainment. Hope this helped.

I've Seen Some Characters Get Instant Hits When They Attack, What's With That?
Ah the instant hit thing... Now while the site's Deities are the only thing allowed to be more powerful then our own characters, there are some special cases... Like Ru for example. Ru is a wolf experiment created by GUN and well... she's got a few problems. One case is her "Berserk" Mode. It's triggered by extreme hate and if she hits something while in that state, she gets an instant hit- Which means it doesn't allow the other character to move out of the way in time. Normally these "Instant Hits" aren't allowed. But only on special cases, we'll make an exception.
Back to top Back to top
How Can I Tell Which Deities Are Good and Which Are Bad?
Simple. Some (Or which I haven't named yet) are all good. Others like Zaire (Owned by Ru360), Nightmare (Owned by Ru360), and Khaoz (Owned by Ru360), are bad. And as for Solearis; he's neutral. Also, no idea why we have more evil deities then good...
Back to top Back to top
All Deities Seem To Rule Over Something... What Do Solaris And The Others Rule Over?
Zaire- who is mine- rules over Dimensions & Destruction, Nightmare- who is also mine- rules over shadows (Hence, darkness.), Khaoz rules over chaos, and Solearis (Who I like to joke about being Solaris's nephew) rules over Gifts, Innocence, Love, and Mischievousness. -Hence why he's a neutral deity.

Are There Any Rules That Say No Two Characters From One Person Can Be In A Zone At Once?
Example: Can I have or not have Phantom and Ozzy in the same zone? My Answer: No, there's no rules against this. You are allowed to RP with four different characters in the same zone. For example, you are allowed to use Phantom, Ozzy, Neil, and Shade, all in Mirage Desert. There's nothing against this, and you can throw them in and out if you want to switch them. Remember, you can only have four different characters in a zone/topic. No higher then four- and less then four- is allowed.

Is This Site/Forum A "Free Forum" or a "Rule Book Forum"?
Honestly, the site's a little bit of both... You can design your character and mess with them in anyway you want, then you start to level them up. The leveling them up thing is so no character will be "Set" to be stronger then the others... Much like ourselves, we exercise and work out to become stronger for our own goals. But unfortunately there's always one person who likes to stand in our way. This is another reason why we've got these "Stats", -our site works as if it was it's own little world. And like any world, it's got it's own society. So, I hope this didn't confuse you more in any way... *Edit* More advise on the Free Forum/Rule Book Forum thing. Prewritten rules- few of which we have- are good in that it's a set standard that many people follow, so it makes it a bit simpler in the flow of RP because you don't need to explain what this or that ability allows you to do. However... Free form is exactly that - you make up your own abilities, your own strengths and weaknesses and such. You can be as creative as you want to be. Invent your own characters, make up new abilities and whatnot. Although... Prewritten rules and character concepts can be hard to learn and understand. Granted not all are hard to understand! But there's still the learning of your character and 'playing it by the book' deal. Free form has no rules, no guidelines in creating your character and while that is a good thing, there's always the not so good side. Without any boundaries, it is tempting to give your characters all these super god-like abilities as well as changing or adding abilities when it suits your situation. There isn't a good side or a bad side to this. Both free form and prewritten guidelines are good to use. Like I stated previously, it just depends on your preference. But there are always a few things to consider when you make your character... So yeah, the site's a little of both.

How Many Different Characters Can I Have In A RP?
Okay, as my friend has been asking, "Are There Any Rules That Say No Two Characters From One Person Can Be In A Zone At Once?". Example: Can I Have Or Not Have Phantom And Ozzy In The Same Zone? My Answer: No, there's not any rules against this. Anywho, you are allowed to RP with four different characters in the same section. For example, you are allowed to use Phantom, Ozzy, Neil, and Shade, all in Mirage Desert. There's nothing against this, and you can throw them in and out if you want to switch them. Remember, you can only have four different characters in a zone/topic. No higher then four- and less then four- is allowed.

What's The Point Of The "Private, Open, Invitation, & Semi-Open" Thing?
Well, sometimes people don't want some random person suddenly appearing in their topic and ruining it. So these declare how open the topic is; "Private" is a few people- or just yourself- RPing together, "Invitation" means you must be invited to join, "Open" means everybody can get in if they want too, and "Semi-Open" is the person wants people to join, but they don't want it overflowing with twenty members. So then, now that you know the point of them, I hope you'll respect the person's choice of allowing you in or not.
Back to top Back to top
What's "No Free RP"?
No Free RP zone is well... A restricted zone. These No Free RP areas are ones you actually HAVE to get permission for before you can join. I know, I know, it will take too long. But believe me, it will only take a minute; and we don't bite! Honest! Some of these No Free RP zones are just special to some of us Mods and Admins 'cause we made them up in the first place! Anyways, I just had to tell you that for No Free RP Zones you have to get permission from a Mod or Admin before posting. Otherwise, you'll break the rules.

How Do I RP?
oOo||| You don't know how to RP?!?! Of course you possibly don't... Well, in my opinion, Role-Play is sorta like writing a story. But here's some site's that might help. http://how-to-roleplay.blogspot.com/ http://landsofevelon.com/forums/ The Lands of Evelon are what got me into Role-play. That and I always loved the idea of playing something you're not... Like a dog! And the blogspot thing gives you lots of handy advice. I may find some more and upload them sooner or later though... So check back often if you're still not sure how to RP!
Back to top Back to top
I don't quite understand the alignment thing... Can you make it easier to understand?
Well, you're in luck. While I may not change the Alignment thing in the Rules and Help section I found a site that makes the Alignment thing simpler. http://easydamus.com/alignment.html I hope this helped! (Note: No, I do NOT own this site.) *Edit* Also, if your still stumped on what your character's alignment should be; try a quiz. (Wow, what lame advice I just gave there. T_T) Anyways... Although a lot of them may be annoying, some of them are decent and may help. Like this for example, http://www.pa.msu.edu/~aaronson/alitest/q1.html

Is there anything in particular you'll accept here? Ex. Digimon, Pokemon, Mobians, Sonic Fan Chars, ect.
Ah, good question. Well, this site, due to the name, accepts everything that's an animal-like creature in a humanoid form. That also means we accept humans too. XD We also allow Robots like Neil Parker (Who belongs to Ace80). So yeah, whenever it be Pokemon, Digimon, something from The Lands of Evelon, Zetapets, Neopets, Sonic, ect.; we'll allow it!

What's "Mechanimal Inc."?
Mechanimal Inc. is responsible for all the robotic animals that have been wandering around our world. -Such as Circe and Amadi! Mechanimal Inc. isn't well known, which is why you can't RP in this location, but it IS well known for kidnapping a few young (As in below 15 and above 6) anthros for their experiments and creating their own "Mechanimals"- such as their company is named after- like Khimeras (Courtesy of Baalsbaby of The Lands of Evelon). We don't really know where they reside, other then that many children seem to go missing when they wander outside of Wind Rider Village...

What's a Mechanimal?
A mechanimal is basically any animal, whenever mammal or reptilian, that has mechanical parts. Like a cyborg animal is a mechanimal. Also, the origin of the Mechanimals is off of a game called "The Day The World Broke". If you've played it then you'll know where I'm coming from with these guys.
Back to top Back to top
Can I Make A Mechanimal?
Go ahead.
Back to top Back to top
Why is it That Amadi and Kaylee Were Released but Mechanimal Inc. Tried to Kill Circe and Mitzi.
Because, my dear fellow Role-Player/Forum Reader, Mechanimal Inc., like kinda Darran (Of UNION), takes animals/anthros off of the streets (Even if they're in another area) and mutate them into Mechanimals! They then release their little "Mutants" back into the world where they found them. They'll also do the same with their creations (Even if they're destructive). As for Circe and Mitzi... we may never know why Mechanimal Inc. tried to kill them. Especially when they just normally like experimenting on poor anthros/animals and creating robotic animals then releasing both types into the world.

Login and Registration Issues

Why can't I log in?
Have you registered? Seriously, you must register in order to log in. Have you been banned from the board? (A message will be displayed if you have.) If so, you should contact the webmaster or board administrator to find out why. If you have registered and are not banned and you still cannot log in then check and double-check your username and password. Usually this is the problem; if not, contact the board administrator -- they may have incorrect configuration settings for the board.
Back to top Back to top
Why do I need to register at all?
You may not have to -- it is up to the administrator of the board as to whether you need to register in order to post messages. However, registration will give you access to additional features not available to guest users such as definable avatar images, private messaging, e-mailing to fellow users, usergroup subscription, etc. It only takes a few minutes to register so it is recommended you do so.
Back to top Back to top
Why do I get logged off automatically?
If you do not check the Log me in automatically box when you log in, the board will only keep you logged in for a preset time. This prevents misuse of your account by anyone else. To stay logged in, check the box during login. This is not recommended if you access the board from a shared computer, e.g. library, internet cafe, university cluster, etc.
Back to top Back to top
How do I prevent my username from appearing in the online user listings?
In your profile you will find an option Hide your online status; if you switch this on you'll only appear to board administrators or to yourself. You will be counted as a hidden user.
Back to top Back to top
I've lost my password!
Don't panic! While your password cannot be retrieved it can be reset. To do this go to the login page and click I've forgotten my password. Follow the instructions and you should be back online in no time.
Back to top Back to top
I registered but cannot log in!
First check that you are entering the correct username and password. If they are okay then one of two things may have happened: if COPPA support is enabled and you clicked the I am under 13 years old link while registering then you will have to follow the instructions you received. If this is not the case then maybe your account need activating. Some boards will require all new registrations be activated, either by yourself or by the administrator before you can log on. When you registered it would have told you whether activation was required. If you were sent an e-mail then follow the instructions; if you did not receive the e-mail then check that your e-mail address is valid. One reason activation is used is to reduce the possibility of rogue users abusing the board anonymously. If you are sure the e-mail address you used is valid then try contacting the board administrator.
Back to top Back to top
I registered in the past but cannot log in anymore!
The most likely reasons for this are: you entered an incorrect username or password (check the e-mail you were sent when you first registered) or the administrator has deleted your account for some reason. If it is the latter case then perhaps you did not post anything? It is usual for boards to periodically remove users who have not posted anything so as to reduce the size of the database. Try registering again and get involved in discussions.

User Preferences and settings

How do I change my settings?
All your settings (if you are registered) are stored in the database. To alter them click the Profile link (generally shown at the top of pages but this may not be the case). This will allow you to change all your settings.
Back to top Back to top
The times are not correct!
The times are almost certainly correct; however, what you may be seeing are times displayed in a timezone different from the one you are in. If this is the case, you should change your profile setting for the timezone to match your particular area, e.g. London, Paris, New York, Sydney, etc. Please note that changing the timezone, like most settings, can only be done by registered users. So if you are not registered, this is a good time to do so, if you pardon the pun!
Back to top Back to top
I changed the timezone and the time is still wrong!
If you are sure you have set the timezone correctly and the time is still different, the most likely answer is daylight savings time (or summer time as it is known in the UK and other places). The board is not designed to handle the changeovers between standard and daylight time so during summer months the time may be an hour different from the real local time.
Back to top Back to top
My language is not in the list!
The most likely reason is that Forumotion has not yet been translated into your language. If you have the opportunity and would like to help the community, please feel free to contact Forumotion support to offer your help in translating the service into your language.
Back to top Back to top
How do I show an image below my username?
There may be two images below a username when viewing posts. The first is an image associated with your rank; generally these take the form of stars or blocks indicating how many posts you have made or your status on the forums. Below this may be a larger image known as an avatar; this is generally unique or personal to each user. It is up to the board administrator to enable avatars and they have a choice over the way in which avatars can be made available. If you are unable to use avatars then this is the decision of the board admin and you should ask them their reasons (we're sure they'll be good!)
Back to top Back to top
How do I change my rank?
In general you cannot directly change the wording of any rank (ranks appear below your username in topics and on your profile depending on the style used). Most boards use ranks to indicate the number of posts you have made and to identify certain users. For example, moderators and administrators may have a special rank. Please do not abuse the board by posting unnecessarily just to increase your rank -- you will probably find the moderator or administrator will simply lower your post count.
Back to top Back to top
When I click the e-mail link for a user it asks me to log in.
Sorry, but only registered users can send e-mail to people via the built-in e-mail form (if the admin has enabled this feature). This is to prevent malicious use of the e-mail system by anonymous users.
Back to top Back to top

Posting Issues

How do I post a topic in a forum?
Easy -- click the relevant button on either the forum or topic screens. You may need to register before you can post a message. The facilities available to you are listed at the bottom of the forum and topic screens (the You can post new topics, You can vote in polls, etc. list)
Back to top Back to top
How do I edit or delete a post?
Unless you are the board admin or forum moderator you can only edit or delete your own posts. You can edit a post (sometimes for only a limited time after it was made) by clicking the edit button for the relevant post. If someone has already replied to the post, you will find a small piece of text output below the post when you return to the topic that lists the number of times you edited it. This will only appear if no one has replied; it also will not appear if moderators or administrators edit the post (they should leave a message saying what they altered and why). Please note that normal users cannot delete a post once someone has replied.
Back to top Back to top
How do I add a signature to my post?
To add a signature to a post you must first create one; this is done via your profile. Once created you can check the Add Signature box on the posting form to add your signature. You can also add a signature by default to all your posts by checking the appropriate radio box in your profile. You can still prevent a signature being added to individual posts by un-checking the add signature box on the posting form.
Back to top Back to top
How do I create a poll?
Creating a poll is easy -- when you post a new topic (or edit the first post of a topic, if you have permission) you should see a Add Poll form below the main posting box. If you cannot see this then you probably do not have rights to create polls. You should enter a title for the poll and then at least two options -- to set an option type in the poll question and click the Add option button. You can also set a time limit for the poll, 0 being an infinite amount. There will be a limit to the number of options you can list, which is set by the board administrator
Back to top Back to top
How do I edit or delete a poll?
As with posts, polls can only be edited by the original poster, a moderator, or board administrator. To edit a poll, click the first post in the topic, which always has the poll associated with it. If no one has cast a vote then users can delete the poll or edit any poll option. However, if people have already placed votes only moderators or administrators can edit or delete it; this is to prevent people rigging polls by changing options mid-way through a poll
Back to top Back to top
Why can't I access a forum?
Some forums may be limited to certain users or groups. To view, read, post, etc. you may need special authorization which only the forum moderator and board administrator can grant, so you should contact them.
Back to top Back to top
Why can't I vote in polls?
Only registered users can vote in polls so as to prevent spoofing of results. If you have registered and still cannot vote then you probably do not have appropriate access rights.
Back to top Back to top

Formatting and Topic Types

What is BBCode?
BBCode is a special implementation of HTML. Whether you can use BBCode is determined by the administrator. You can also disable it on a per post basis from the posting form. BBCode itself is similar in style to HTML: tags are enclosed in square braces [ and ] rather than < and > and it offers greater control over what and how something is displayed. For more information on BBCode see the guide which can be accessed from the posting page.
Back to top Back to top
Can I use HTML?
That depends on whether the administrator allows you to; they have complete control over it. If you are allowed to use it, you will probably find only certain tags work. This is a safety feature to prevent people from abusing the board by using tags which may destroy the layout or cause other problems. If HTML is enabled you can disable it on a per post basis from the posting form.
Back to top Back to top
What are Smileys?
Smileys, or Emoticons, are small graphical images which can be used to express some feeling using a short code, e.g. :) means happy, :( means sad. The full list of emoticons can be seen via the posting form. Try not to overuse smileys, though, as they can quickly render a post unreadable and a moderator may decide to edit them out or remove the post altogether.
Back to top Back to top
Can I post Images?
Images can indeed be shown in your posts. However, there is no facility at present for uploading images directly to this board. Therefore you must link to an image stored on a publicly accessible web server, e.g. https://www.some-unknown-place.net/my-picture.gif. You cannot link to pictures stored on your own PC (unless it is a publicly accessible server) nor to images stored behind authentication mechanisms such as Hotmail or Yahoo mailboxes, password-protected sites, etc. To display the image use either the BBCode [img] tag or appropriate HTML (if allowed).
Back to top Back to top
What are Announcements?
Announcements often contain important information and you should read them as soon as possible. Announcements appear at the top of every page in the forum to which they are posted. Whether or not you can post an announcement depends on the permissions required, which are set by the administrator.
Back to top Back to top
What are Sticky topics?
Sticky topics appear below any announcements in viewforum and only on the first page. They are often quite important so you should read them where possible. As with announcements the board administrator determines what permissions are required to post sticky topics in each forum.
Back to top Back to top
What are Locked topics?
Locked topics are set this way by either the forum moderator or board administrator. You cannot reply to locked topics and any poll contained inside is automatically ended. Topics may be locked for many reasons.
Back to top Back to top

User Levels and Groups

What are Administrators?
Administrators are people assigned the highest level of control over the entire board. These people can control all facets of board operation which include setting permissions, banning users, creating usergroups or moderators, etc. They also have full moderator capabilities in all the forums.
Back to top Back to top
What are Moderators?
Moderators are individuals (or groups of individuals) whose job it is to look after the running of the forums from day to day. They have the power to edit or delete posts and lock, unlock, move, delete and split topics in the forum they moderate. Generally moderators are there to prevent people going off-topic or posting abusive or offensive material.
Back to top Back to top
What are Usergroups?
Usergroups are a way in which board administrators can group users. Each user can belong to several groups (this differs from most other boards) and each group can be assigned individual access rights. This makes it easy for administrators to set up several users as moderators of a forum, or to give them access to a private forum, etc.
Back to top Back to top
How do I join a Usergroup?
To join a usergroup click the usergroup link on the page header (dependent on template design) and you can then view all usergroups. Not all groups are open access -- some are closed and some may even have hidden memberships. If the board is open then you can request to join it by clicking the appropriate button. The user group moderator will need to approve your request; they may ask why you want to join the group. Please do not pester a group moderator if they turn your request down -- they will have their reasons.
Back to top Back to top
How do I become a Usergroup Moderator?
Usergroups are initially created by the board administrator who also assigns a board moderator. If you are interested in creating a usergroup then your first point of contact should be the administrator, so try dropping them a private message.
Back to top Back to top

Private Messaging

I cannot send private messages!
There are three reasons for this; you are not registered and/or not logged on, the board administrator has disabled private messaging for the entire board, or the board administrator has prevented you individually from sending messages. If it is the latter case you should try asking the administrator why.
Back to top Back to top
I keep getting unwanted private messages!
In the future we will be adding an ignore list to the private messaging system. For now, though, if you keep receiving unwanted private messages from someone, inform the board administrator -- they have the power to prevent a user from sending private messages at all.
Back to top Back to top
I have received a spamming or abusive e-mail from someone on this board!
We are sorry to hear that. The e-mail form feature of this board includes safeguards to try to track users who send such posts. You should e-mail the board administrator with a full copy of the e-mail you received and it is very important this include the headers (these list details of the user that sent the e-mail). They can then take action.
