Hello MyVMK Forums Members! We have been so excited to release the new and improved Shoutbox to the forums! Here is a quick-start guide with all you need to know to get talking. Remember, the Forum and Game Rules still apply! What are you waiting for? Let's Get Started! In order to get shouting, you must log in with your In-game Account. Enter your login username and password, click "Log In With MyVMK", remember to follow the rules, and click "Got It"! Take a look at your controls: Mute/Unmute the Chat - Click to Mute - Click to Un-Mute 2. Shoutbox Settings 3. Expand to See Users Online Personalize it and Get Chatting! 1. Click the circle to bring up the color-picker. You can either drag it around until you find the exact shade you like, use the RGB/HSV numbers, or the hex code (#000000)**Please be courteous when choosing a color. Don't choose something insanely bright!2. The rest is straightforward. Type a message and click send! The Not-So-Fun Stuff - Reporting a User If a user is breaking the rules- report it! Simply click the username by the message that is bothering you, and click "Report User" Up will pop a box reminding you who you are reporting, for what message, and will ask you for more details (what is wrong with it? Is there anything else we should know?). Click "Report" and a moderator will review it soon! Back to the Fun Stuff You've got the basics, so here are some quick shortcuts you can use on the shoutbox! Typographical Emphases Code: *bold* = bold Code: _italics_ = italics Code: ~strikethrough~ = strikethrough Code: $#full width#$ = F U L L W I D T H Code: ```preformatted``` = preformatted Commands /Space [TEXT] - Give the text a cool space effect. /Shrug [TEXT] - Appends ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ to the end of your message. Emojis Right now, there is no menu to pick from. However, most of the emoji codes work. You can find a cheat-sheet here! For example: Code: :heart: = and Code: :smile: = Frequently Asked Questions Q: I'm logged in on forums, and it's asking me to log in again. Why? A: You must log in with your MyVMK game account. This is the same username and password you would use to log in to play MyVMK (not your character name!) Q: Can I post links? A: Only links from MyVMK.com will be posted. This includes the forums! Q: I was talking, but I got muted. I wasn't saying anything bad. Why? A: Similar to talking in the game, if you send too many messages in a certain amount of time, you need to wait a little before you can type again. "Slow down, tiger!" That's all for now! If you have any questions, comment below! Happy shouting!
