New member starter's guide

Post by Opal Rider on Sun Jun 30, 2013 10:24 pm

(I felt like writing this down after noticing we didn't really have anything of the sort other than the FAQ, which is more of a troubleshooter than anything. You guys can do what you want with it.)

Many new members who join this site already know the workings of a forum. I understand this. However, for all of you new guys to the internet and whatnot, here's a few simple ideas for finding out what to do and getting to know people around the site. Keep in mind that these are only guidelines. You do not need to follow these in any way, shape, or form, but it might be a good idea to do so.

First thing any new member to the site should do is make an introduction thread. This'll just be you saying "Hi, my name is (person)!", to which everyone else will respond "Hello person.". Almost like an alcoholic's anonymous meeting, except I don't think many people here are an alcoholic (except Lankher ^.^). So to do this, just click on the "Hello/Goodbye" tab under the WRTL Center, click "New Thread", and fill out all the little text bubbles as if you were writing an email to us. Bam. You're done. Simple as that.

And now you might ask "So now everybody on the site has seen your name around here. That's great, now what?" Well, there's still a lot more of the site left to explore, although while you're doing that, you could always type a quick hello to the members of the site over in the shoutbox to your right. It's a great place for live communication with some of the online members. I promise we won't bite, and if we do, please inform me, since I would love to study this physical anomaly of mandibles traveling over the internet.

Anyhow, on to the Line Rider Movies section. This is the big reason why anyone is going to join a line rider site in the first place. All of the riders from AC to ZNF post their stuff there, and it's there for if you just feel like checking on new tracks, even if you aren't into making them just yet. Once you do happen to upload a video to youtube or the likes, it'll be roughly the same as when you made that hello thread. Click on either Bare tracks or The Green Room (Does your track have scenery? If so, it goes in the green room. If it's just red and blue lines, click bare tracks). Then you click new thread, fill it all out, include the url for the youtube video, and you're done. Then we can all watch the video and help you improve your skillz. *IMPORTANT* You will see some very good tracks in these subforums. Whatever you do, don't get discouraged from trying your best. Stuff like this takes practice, and you have to stick with it in order to get any better.

Last but not least would be the WRTL Livestream. If someone happens to be active there, you'd be able to watch them make tracks live. It's also just a great place to hang out and chat, if you feel like it.

Also also, if you have any questions at all, feel free to pm either me or one of the staff about your problem. To do so, click the little letter in the top menu on the site, click "pm user", and fill in the boxes. Make sure you spelled the person's name exact, or it won't be sent.

And with that, have a good time on the site! It's good to have you around.

TL;DR, this could help newer members around the site.

:P Well the members that know what to do wouldn't have to read it, silly. I'm not expecting you to bore yourself to death.
