How do I join?
To join Wyrmrest Accord.org, click the "Create new account" link in the left-hand column. Read through the instructions there and fill in the information requested. This will help people you meet through the site get in touch with you in Warcraft.
In a few moments you will receive an email with your account information and password. Log in, and you will see your name and more options in the left-hand Navigation menu. You may want to go right to “my account” and change your password or enter more information about your character, but otherwise, you're all set!
How do I make a post?
You can post to the community in several ways. To get started, click the "Create" link in the left hand column. Here, you can choose to enter a Blog entry for your character, create a Book, Event, Forum topic, Group, or Poll.
You can also participate by joining groups, contributing to books, or commenting on others' blogs, events, forum topics, or polls. We look forward to hearing from you! There are no requirements to post, but we definitely encourage people to post often. The more you contribute, the stronger our community becomes.
How do I add images to my posts?
Images are often used within journal entries, or sometimes simply shared. We do not currently permit uploading of images to the site, but you can link to an image from another site within your entry by clicking on the "Add Image" icon.
Some users choose to use an outside picture-hosting site for their images, such as Imageshack or Photobucket. You can easily "break" the formatting of the site with large images. Try to keep images down to no more than 550 pixels wide. If you would like to offer the image in a larger format, simply add a link to your image.
How do I add an avatar or signature?
To add a signature or avatar (the little picture beside your name in all your posts) to your account, click the “My Account” link in the Navigation menu, and select the Edit tab. You will see a box labeled “Picture”. This is where you will upload your avatar. Avatars should be no larger than 100x100 with a maximum file size of 32KiB (if your image isn't small enough, use JPEG with slightly higher compression). Click browse, and select your avatar from a file on your computer. It will then be uploaded and appear on every post you make.
You can also add your signature on the Edit Profile page. This signature will appear only on your Forum posts. Please keep your signature relatively small. Members are welcome to have graphic signatures provided they follow the guidelines below:
- Images may not be more than 65 pixels x 590 pixels.
- Images may not contain any explicit text or images.
- Images may not be property of another site/artist without proper credit.
- Avatars and signature images must be related to Warcraft.
What is an Event?
An Event can be anything you have planned that people might be interested in joining, from one-time events (trials, plays, etc.) to repeating events (story circles, taverns, guild meetings, etc.) to scheduled instance runs. Basically, anything you might want to invite the community as a whole to attend can be an Event. When you are viewing an Event, make sure you read the Event information closely. For example, if the text says "guild members only," you'll likely not want to crash it without first talking to whomever created the event.
Events can be viewed at the Events Calendar.
How do I create an Event?
Under the “Create” link, click on “Event”. Fill out the start and end times and the rest of the information. Your Event will then appear on the Calendar, and in the "Upcoming Events" area in the right sidebar every day until the event has passed. If your Event is tied to a storyline, you may want a link to the event page in your Blog or Book. An important note about time: When you enter an event, use the server time zone for when it will be held. When creating an event for a specific group, be sure to mention that somewhere within the Event description.
Publicize your Event! We're always looking for them. There is an Events forum specifically devoted to this purpose, so be sure to post something about it there.
What is the Character Sheet Feature?
The Character feature is a handy networking device that allows you to link related content to a single character or even multiple ones! This includes In-Character forum posts (such as Open/Closed RP threads) and Blogs. In order to use this feature, simply type the character's name in the appropriate box when creating content. You MUST have created a Character Sheet prior to doing this or it will not work. You can browse and create Character Sheets here.
