SECTION 7: GENERAL FORUM STRUCTURE
Though not EVERY game has the same forum structure, this should give you
a general idea on how each of the game forums are organized and
structured. The word "game" is used as a placeholder word in each of the
descriptions, so simply just substitute the word "game" for the name
of the game/s that you play. Here are some terms that you should come
familiar with in relation to the forums:
- Sections - These are the forums that pertain to the games. For example, Gardens of Time is a section. More Playdom Games can also be considered a section, with forums located there being "sub-sections".
A typical forum (section) layout looks as follows--do note that
different communities use different layouts from the one displayed
- Announcements - This is where all important news and
announcements relating to a particular game and community are announced.
These announcements are usually posted by the Playdom Community
Manager for that particular game, or the Forum Administrators if it
concerns the whole forum.
- Getting Started - The getting started subforums
are used as a means to ask for general help in relation to the game
that it pertains to. The name of this subforum isn't to be taken
literally; this means that all "how do I do this?" type questions
should be posted in here.
- Tutorials and Guides - The Tutorials and Guides
subforum contains in-depth user created guides and tutorials for the
game that it pertains to. The threads in these subforums should
usually answer all general questions relating to the game.
- Technical Support - These sections are for
player-to-player support on issues relating to the game. It is
important to note that all official support requests are handled
through the Playdom Support website, and not on the forums.
- Suggestions and Ideas - Have a suggestion to
make in regards to the game? Then this subforum is the place to post
in to get your ideas heard, as well as get feedback on the idea or
suggestion that you are making. All feedback; good or bad, relating to a
particular game should be posted in these subforums, also.
- General Discussion - This is for general discussion relating to the game that doesn't fit in any other category.
- Off Topic Discussion - Any discussion that
doesn't relate to the game is off topic, which means that it should be
posted here. Off Topic sections do not count towards a users total
