A beginner will surely find here a lot of useful information from more experienced comrades.

How to log in to the forum?

Registration on the forum is indicated from the moment of the first entry. In order to log in to the forum, you need to click on the " Login " button in the upper right corner, enter your gaming nickname, password in the form that appears and confirms the "captcha", and then click on the " Login " button.

In the title, specify the name of the topic. The box below is the content of the topic you want to share with others. Try to convey the essence of the topic you want to highlight in the topic you are creating as accurately and volumetrically as possible.

Attention! If you are blocked on the forum, you can not create topics and write messages in all sections of the forum.

You can also create a poll on the subject. When editing or creating a topic above there is a switch "Poll". After clicking on the button, a form for creating a poll appears:

In this form, you have the opportunity to customize the survey that you want to see at the top of the topic. Use this function only when necessary. Polls in topics where they are not needed look out of place.

By the way, in some sections (for example, archives or news from developers) users cannot create topics. In this case, you will not see the " Create a topic " button above the content of the section.

Attention! If you are banned on the forum, then you can not create topics and write messages in all sections of the forum.

Warning System

The order of the forum is monitored by a group of moderators. You can help the moderators of the forum in their work - to complain about the message that violates the rules of the game. To do this, click the " Report post " button above the message that violates the rules.
