So after our forum's numbers doubled almost overnight we've faced a huge influx of users, mostly from twitter, wanting to join but not understanding how this forum works. This is for all you newbies, we hope this helps clear up the most common questions and makes getting accustomed to the forum easier! If any one has any questions, concerns, or even suggestions feel free to comment below! Spoiler: What is aeriverse? How is a forum any different from twitter? A forum is an online discussion site where people converse through posted messages in specific “threads” or subtopics as well as through private messaging. Reddit, onehallyu, or soompi are popular examples. For kpop stan twitter, Aeriverse differs in that it is dedicated entirely for EXO-Ls to talk, spread news, make fanart/fanfiction, or simply fangirl in a convenient layout. It is a safe space where insult, fanwars, and toxicity are not tolerated. Spoiler: How do I make an account? Why am I not getting my email verification? On the top right hand corner, the first button you see will bring you to the sign up form. If you are having trouble with the email verification please DM our twitter account @Aeriverse and we will assist you. Spoiler: How do I navigate the forum? How is it organized? “Where do I go!?” Spoiler: The General Section The General section includes official announcements from staff, awards (i.e, badges), the studio for all graphic related activities, and the EXO-L section which you must be logged in to access. Spoiler: EXO Section The “EXO” section consists of subtopics for all EXO members past or present, as well as official pairings. Here is where you will find the “Official Threads” for specific members and all of the posts you make will be inside only those official threads. Spoiler: EXO PLANET “EXO PLANET” section is primarily for updates, anything from melon chart positions to a new drama role to new performances. What’s happening right now. Spoiler: OT Section The “OT section” is where you can talk about music, shows, etc whether or not they are related to EXO. This is where multi-fandomers and random posts will find their haven. Spoiler: Where can I discuss non-exo materials? What does it mean to be “strictly for EXO and EXO-Ls?” The majority of the forum will be dedicated to EXO only. If you are multi fandom or wish to talk about other groups/topics, please make sure to NOT spam EXO sections and instead make threads in the OT section. Also, we do not condone bashing other groups/fandoms in the forum. The ranting thread is available in the EXO-L section for personal/fan rants, but you MUST use general terms such as “antis” instead of specifically targeting others. Spoiler: What are forum games? Forum games are events hosted by staff and users for other members to participate in. They range from short games that may last 30 minutes up to many hours. Some forums games are ongoing and any user can jump in at any time. When a game requires sign ups, there will be an announcement thread posted where others can choose to sign up and participate. It is important to read all the rules before participating as to eliminate confusion. Some forum games include Mafia, Guess the EXO song, and Scavenger Hunts to name a few.
