End of Year News (December 2017)

Thu Dec 28, 2017 3:57 am by Adrian

(It's been one year since I made a news thread, oops)

Merry Christmas/Festivus/whatever holiday you do or do not celebrate!

Forum Bug

Wed Dec 28, 2016 3:18 am by Adrian

Hi all,

We're aware of a peculiar forum glitch that's causing some subforums to be locked.

Due to the lateness at this time, it might be a while before the glitch can be remedied, because despite my best efforts and as far as I can tell, everything seems to be working fine admin-side. It may have …

Guide to the Forums

Post by Ace on Fri Dec 27, 2013 5:04 pm

If you're reading this guide, it's likely because you are confused and/or lost on how these forums work. Don't worry; this guide will explain how these forums operate and should help you find your way when starting out in Creativity Center.

The first thing that I strongly suggest doing is reading the "Site Rules". (To get there quickly, simply click "Site Rules" before this; it is hyperlinked for your convenience, as will the rest of the sections in the forum. Hopefully you can figure out where and what each section of the forum is by using these hyperlinks, until you know where they are.) You don't want to be reprimanded for doing something you didn't know was wrong. However, ignorance is no excuse. Read through the "Site Rules" and then return here. The "Site Rules" are globally announced everywhere in the forum, so if you ever forget any of the rules just head anywhere in the forums and you'll find them.

The second thing that I suggest doing is heading over to the "Welcome-to-the-Forum Forum!" and posting a new topic in the "Greetings and Goodbyes" sub-section. The "Welcome-to-the-Forum Forum" will introduce you to Creativity Center itself, while the "Greetings and Goodbyes" section will let you introduce yourself to everyone at Creativity Center so that we can meet you and help you out in turn. You can also tell us a little about yourself, which may show your common interests with other members or help you out in what you want to do here at Creativity Center, whether it be writing stories, roleplaying, or creating art. If you're ever in need of some help as to how to do something or are unsure about anything, head over to the "Guides" sub-section. There are plenty of wonderful guides here, which can help you create an amazing RPG, start an interesting story, or edit that great image, as well as a variety of other things pertaining to the site. There are also guides on important things such as profanity and romance, which go deeper into the rules of Creativity Center and are suggested for you to read if you are ever worried about the proper boundaries or wondering how something works.

Other things you should know about Creativity Center:
Our admins post updates and information in the "CC News" section. Whether it be a new milestone or Site Maintenance, you can head over to "CC News" and see what's going on in Creativity Center.

The "Forum Feedback Forum" can be accessed if you ever have a problem with any of the site's features or just want to thank our admins for this great site. You can also post topics for new ideas related to the site, such as if you want a new feature or would like something changed. If you find a bug, please feel free to report it in the "Issues and Bugs" sub-section; our admins will squash it as soon as they can. If you have any input on the site, please refer to the "Ideas and Suggestions" sub-section. Bugs that have been squashed and any feedback that has been resolved will be in the sub-section "Discussed Feedback and Squashed Bugs", so if you are wondering whether a bug or idea has been resolved, head here first.

Now then, onto the main part of the guide, the sections of the forum about creativity, for which this site was made.

First up is the "Stories, Books, and Novels" section. Here, Creativity Center's members post discussions and ideas for new tales to write about. In the sub-sections, "Fan Fiction" and "Original Works", members post their works accordingly. Feel free to share any of your old or new stories, books, or novels with us; great stories can interest many people or help pass the time while waiting for members to post on RPGs, which is the next section. The "RPG Backstories, Prologues, and Epilogues" sub-section is made for any kind of story that relates to an RPG; it can deal with a specific character, point in time of the RPG, or even just a more detailed account of a section of the RPG. Finally, the "The CC Archives" sub-section deals with any dead or finished stories.

The "Role-Playing Games" section is where you can participate in, create, or discuss role-playing games. RPGs, as they are called, are very fun, and in these RPGs you can become other people and discover unimaginable places. RPGs are meant for interaction of all sorts, keeping in mind the rules, of course. The sub-sections of this section are "RPG Opening Posts and Applications", in which you can find the forms for RPGs which will allow you to make characters in order to join said RPGs. This sub-section can also give you more information on an RPG, and help you decide whether or not you would like to take part in it. The "Small Group RPGs" sub-section allows you to partake in smaller, more detailed RPGs for a limited number of people. These RPGs are organized amazingly, so that even if you can't join the RPG, reading it is a great option as well, just because of how great the stories these RPGs tell are. The next sub-section is the "Role-Playing Games Shops", in which you can buy items for an RPG that has a shop set up. If you ever want to create a new RPG and are trying to form an idea or would like to collaborate with someone else, head over to the "RPG Discussion" sub-section. Here, you can get help on ideas for RPGs or ask if anyone would be willing to join your idea for one. The next sub-section is "Dead RPGs", in which you can find RPGs which have finished. Feel free to remake the RPG (with the creator's permission, of course) or ask the creator of it to remake it, or even just read through them if you want some ideas or just like the story. The "RPG Hall of Fame" is the last sub-section, and it contains the best RPGs that Creativity Center has seen so far. Make sure to check this sub-section out in particular, because there are likely many tips and ideas you can pull from these successful RPGs that will help your own RPG thrive; it is also a great place if you just want to read through one of Creativity Center's amazing RPGs.

A section connected to Creativity Center in various ways, whether it be through banners, signatures, or appearances for RPGs, is the "Graphics and Artwork" section. Here you can discuss images and show other people what you're working on. Make sure to mind the rules, however. The first sub-section is "GFX CnC", in which you can get help or opinions on your images. The "GFX Shops" sub-section will allow you to ask for a signature for yourself or a picture for an appearance for an RPG. However, be mindful that you are asking, and you will need to be patient. "The Peanut Gallery" is a sub-section for finished pieces of artwork.

Creativity Center also has an "Off-Topic Threads" section, in which you can post things you want to talk about. "Forum Mini-Games" is a fun sub-section which allows you to get to know and interact with members of Creativity Center through exciting games such as Slasher or varied Q&As. The "Videos and Live Feeds" sub-section will allow you to share any videos you find and would like to share with the members of Creativity Center. However, remember the rules!

Finally, the "Other Games" section is there if you want to discuss games that you play and maybe even help you find people on Creativity Center who play the same game and would like to join you in-game.  

Well, by now you have seen most every part of Creativity Center, and you should be a pro at navigating through the forums. I hope you'll join us in all of the creative endeavors here at Creativity Center, and thank you for taking the time to read this guide. I hope you enjoy Creativity Center's forums!

Awesome guide, Ace! That's a great way for our new members to get a quick run-through of the site if they are confused. Again, awesome job!

But not like this: it won’t be by your hand.
