Subaccounts


As part of the amazing new features that our new forum software offers us there is a modification that will make all our lives a dream called Subaccounts. I will admit the first time you use this it may be confusing so I have provided detailed instructions with pictures to help you through the process of linking both accounts you have already created and making new accounts. Lets begin!

  • First of all, log into your player account. You will not be able to perform the following actions from any account but your player account. If you have not been added to the player group contact an admin (Jamie, Gina, Bowie, White or myself).
  • Go to the Profile -> Account settings.
  • Go to Modify Profile -> Manage SubAccounts
  • At the bottom of the SubAccounts is a 'Create/Link' button. You can either create new accounts here or link pre-existing accounts. Click it.
  • For a pre-existing character, type in your character's name and the password you choose for that account. Note: These must all be perfectly correct. If you see a yellow warning sign next to your name that is fine, the warning is only telling you that character name is in use. Click create link.
  • If you see this error don't worry, you just typed your password wrong. Go back and try again.
  • For new accounts, just type a name into the field and make sure you see a green checkmark appear next to the name. It may take a moment, the forum has to check to make sure your unique! Type in whatever password you want to use (be sure to remember it in case you ever need to physically log into the account.)

Wash, rinse, repeat! Make all the character accounts you lost and even the ones you want to make in the future. Don't go too crazy as they will all appear in your profile. Check my profile out to see all my listed accounts!


Now to change to a different account is quite simple. At the top of the screen there is a drop down box, just choose what account you wish to use and you will change into that account.


Also, when posting a reply or a new thread you again have the option of choosing which account to post with. Just look for the box as below.


If you have any questions PM or IM Jamie or Myself, we will help you out!

The Suggestion Box

This tool helps to facilitate feedback on a year round basis instead of waiting for the Survey to come around every winter (but it will not replace the Survey).

Through the "Suggestion Box" you can create submissions for the following categories:
  • Suggestions: Thoughts or suggestions you have towards the running of the board, policies or even plots.
  • Feedback: General feedback on the board, on members, on staffers, or anything else related to Blood Rites.
  • Complaints: Every so often we hear complaints come from the group and this is a new forum where you can voice them.

One thing to note is that the Suggestion Box is anonymous.

If you do want a member of HBC to follow up with your submission there is an optional field for contact information and we'll be sure to follow up once we've received the submission.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Built in Templates

This feature allows us easy access to the Templates we use throughout the board on a daily basis.

When you create a post there is an additional drop down menu available (see screenshot below). You can choose the template you want to populate your post with and it will do it automatically. No more chasing down the template and copying and pasted it in yourself. This is a simple two click process!




If you have recommendations or requests for additional templates that should be used please reach out to myself or a member of the HBC.

Bookmarks

This should be pretty straight forward so here are some screen shots to help show you were to look.

1. You can add book marks by clicking the bookmark button on a topic.

Look in the upper right hand corner of the page.

2. You can view your bookmarks by check "My Bookmarks" in the nav bar.

This is at the very top of the page, middle of the list.

3. Manage your bookmarks. Delete them, link to them, whatever you want! :)


Please post questions or remarks here.
