    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!/chenheart
    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.
    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.

    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.
    [​IMG]
    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.
    [​IMG]
    “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.
    [​IMG]
    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.
    [​IMG]
    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.
    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.

    Users can only make threads every 15 posts! If you do not see the button that says “Post New Thread” then it means you do not have 15 posts yet.

    A single conversation or topic is called a "thread." Since a discussion forum is hierarchical or tree-like in structure, it goes from general>subtopic>thread>posts. Once you enter the specific subtopic relating to your thread, on the top and bottom right corner you will find:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    You make posts by clicking on a thread and scrolling to the bottom of the page to add your comment:
    [​IMG]
    Quoting is how you can reply to another user’s comment and vice versa. On the bottom right of a post, you will find:
    [​IMG]
    The “reply” option is for quoting a single person whereas “+quote” is used when you know you will be quoting multiple users. Once you have quoted them, you go down to make your post/reply and click “insert quote” and then “Quote these messages:”
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    You have a profile page which functions similar to for example a facebook wall, where friends can comment on your profile changes or just drop by.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    You can access your profile page by clicking on your icon on the top of the page or going to any of your posts where your user is showing and clicking your icon there (which is likely how many others will find your profile as well). Below is an example of a profile page:
    [​IMG]
    Similar to twitter DMs, AV has Private Messages labeled as “Conversation,” which can include multiple people in a direct exchange.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    The second icon from the left is where you start Conversations, you can include up to 10 members, allow your friends to invite more people, share files and more.

    Click on your profile by clicking on the circle icon on the top right corner. A drop down will appear, then click on Change Username.Please note that you can only change your username every 40 days unless you purchase a “Username Change” from the shop.

    [​IMG]
    A user position is a small banner you will see under your display icon when posting. For example, staff members will have their respective team position such as Events Team, Moderator, Translator etc. Users who donate to the forum will see a Donor banner. User title refers to the title given in relevance to the number of posts a person has. As more posts are made, a higher user title is given.

    Dedicated Fan - 100 posts

    Diehard Fan - 300 posts

    EXO-L - 500 posts

    Aeri - 700 posts

    If you would like to change your User Title, a “User Title Change” can be purchased from the shop for 60k Chogiwons.
    Following people on AV is different from following on social media platforms such as twitter. To follow the, simply click on their icon or profile and press follow. You can view whether your “friends” are online at the moment via the ‘Users Online’ sidebar.

    For details, see this thread. Chogi₩ons is the official currency of our forum. They can be used to buy items from the shop. You can earn them by making posts (excluding Random), creating threads, receiving likes and through games hosted by other forum users. Donation perks will also include Chogi₩ons.
    Click on “Shop” and use your chogiwons to buy items from “The Market of Suho”
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Items purchased in the store will be displayed under your icon each time you post. For example, if you purchase an EXO signature from the Aeriverse store, other users will be able to see it displayed with your post throughout the thread. The order in which your purchased items are displayed is up to the user but by default they will be displayed in order of purchase time. If you would like to rearrange how your items are displayed, please see the tutorial.

    items bought from the store cannot be rearranged and are displayed in the order you purchased them.

    Please see here for details on the Warning Points System. If a user breaks one of the forum rules, they will receive warning points and/or a penalty based on the severity of their behaviour. Enough warning points can result in user being permanently banned.
    Users may decide to take some time off of Aeriverse to study/work/deal with real life things. We are able to ban users temporarily so they will not be distracted by Aeriverse/forum activities.
    Yes, you can ask for a temporary or permanent ban in the Ask A Mod thread.
