The Forums are a place for the gods of Godville to publicly pronounce and discuss what is on their mind. They are divided up into 4 different categories:

  • Main Square- General discussion about the world of Godville and its heroes.
  • Workmen's Area- Place where you can offer advice to those in need, help others and where you can suggest something interesting.
  • Guilds' Headquarters- Place for guild recruiting campaigns, inter-guild talks and everything else related to guilds. One guild – one topic. Мessages from here are not displayed in the recent posts.
  • Flame Lounge- For all off-topic discussions not related to the game.

Posts

Posts are public and can be seen by any god and hence should not be used for private conversations between two gods. There was a limit of 17 posts a day that has been increased so gods must choose where they wish to speak wisely if they have much to say.

On the browser there can be a string of 57 continues characters on a line for plain text. Block code can hold 55 and block quote can hold 49. If it goes over it will be made into a scrolling box. [1]

Mark Up

The given markup help:

   *bold*
   +underscore+
   -strikethrough-
   _italics_
   bq. (quotes)
   bc. text block
   "link":http://godvillegame.com
   * or # (lists)

other options

   <br>, </br> <br/> (manual line breaks)
   ~subscript~
   ^superscript^
   h1. text to h6. text will produce nothing
   so will =text= with any number of equal signs. 
   bc. text
   =text= produces:
   text
   h1. text
   <text> also produces nothing as do most html tags
   !text! yields <img />
   @text@ places text in a <code> tag set

Post Options

Hidden by the ▼ symbol next to the poster's name, there are the options to flag a post as inappropriate or to link to it, which puts the link in your address bar. For a post recently made by you and and with no posts after it, you may edit it or delete it.

Adding a Picture to an Account (adding a custom Avatar / Gravatar)

To replace the blue and white default picture (DefaultGravatar.jpg) in the forums, users must signup for a WordPress account. On a computer browser, log-in to www.godvillegame.com. Go to "profile" => "Setup Gravatar (avatar for forums)" => "create a new one" OR sign in to WordPress => "add a new image".

Topics

Topics are the individual threads in the forums. Due to lazy gods there are many, many duplicated topics. Although there is a pre-moderation for all new topics and it may take up to 48 hours and Duplicate topics, topics with low community value and topics created in wrong forums may be moved to other forum or deleted without notice, most are accepted and few are moved or deleted.
