New to MMOSite Forum (BBS)?

Don't panic. We're here to help. Our Forum is a part of MMOsite.com, or you can say it's a BBS. The "MMO" stands for Massively Multi-player Online. And BBS stands for Bulletin Board Service -- one of many slang terms used by people writing a post for a BBS. Oh, and "post" refers to the words you submit when you contribute to a BBS topic. "Topic" refers, of course, to the subject being discussed... Oh dear. It all sounds very complicated, doesn't it? But trust us. Getting to grip with a BBS is a lot easier than it sounds. And there are really only a few things you need to know. The best way to learn is to simply get stuck in and see what happens. And if you get stuck, click on any of the following topics to get some help.

When you enter the forum, you'll see there are two sections: General Forums and Game Pub. General Forums are for you to discuss comprehensive topics. Just select a board and jump into discussion. If you want to enter the forum of a particular game, just simply click Game Pub and select the game.

Entering your email address will not make you open to 'spam', and emails sent to you will reveal your address to the senders in no case. (To verify this, you can try sending an email to another user.) The administrator may have configured the forum to send you the final part of the registration process by email, so ensure that the email address you provide is valid and working. (Can't receive the activation mail?) The registration page is shown below:
