If you're looking to get tgcoins, read this thread: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=1514

Hey so, to get the most out of the forum, here's what you can do.

Firstly, the navigation bar will help you get around the forum.

If the images aren't working, it means Puush is down :( apologies. They should work again sooner or later.
I'll make a better guide later ~ ;LuvU

Image


Main takes you to the main page (Board Index.)
Portal links you to forum features that you can play with and use.
FB Page takes you to the tgforums Facebook page.
Search allows you to search for keywords in posts and threads. In this menu there are other useful search features such as "Unread Posts", "My Posts", etc.
Who's online shows all the users that are online.
Members brings you to the members list.

At the very top, you have the user bar

Image


It tells you your last visit on the very left, links you to your user control panel (you can change your options, profile, avatar, etc., here) your private messages and your personal wall, and the logout button.

On the board index, you'll see something like this:

Image


On the top, there are 5 links. The first four give you access to search for specific types of posts.

  • Unanswered posts are threads that have no replies.
  • Unread posts are those you haven't read.
  • New posts shows threads that have been posted in since your last login.
  • Active topics shows a list of all threads that have had activity in them recently.

On the left hand side, you will see icons.

Image

The top one means a forum or thread. The second means it's a forum that has more forums inside it.

Image This icon means it is a link to another place.

Image This icon means a sticky thread which always stays at the top of the list.

They will show up red (or with a red outline for custom icons) if they have new (unread) posts in them, and will show as scrolling lines if it's a popular thread.

Viewing new/latest posts on a thread:

Image


The little * on the icon means you have posted in this thread.

Image

The little orange page icon by the thread title takes you to the first unread post in that thread. The little white page icon on the right takes you to the last post on the thread, skipping over any that you haven't read yet.

Pro Tip: You can hover your mouse on the white page icon to see a preview of the last post contents, and you can hover your mouse over the thread row to see a preview of the first post's contents.

Viewing a thread:

Image


While viewing a thread, you will notice that your "location" is shown above the thread title. You can click anywhere in here to get back to where you came from. The thread title is a link too, and will always link directly to the thread (at the top of the original post.) Below that there is a search bar where you can search that thread only.

Image


At the bottom, you can click Post Reply or Quick Reply to write a response, you can sort and filter the posts you are looking at with the controls, and you can jump to the previous forum with the link on the left or a forum of your choice with the drop-down box on the right.

Image


At the very bottom you have options to add the forum or thread to your feed or subscribe or bookmark it.

Lastly, if you still need any help you can PM or chat with any of our forum staff who will be glad to help you. Pink names are Forum Council members, green names are moderators, and red name means Administrator.

Click on the 3rd one down that says Edit avatar. From there you will be taken to the page where you can insert a URL of an image you want, or upload it from your computer :3.
