Account
Creating an account

To create an account, we do not require you to provide yourself with a username and password. You can simply log in with your STEAM account by visiting the login link found at the top of the page.

Editing your account

To edit your account, you will need to direct yourself to the settings page.

  • 1. Login
  • 2. Click on your username located in the main navigation.
  • 3. Either, click the settings link in the drop down menu once your username has been clicked, or visit your profile and locate the settings link in your sidebar.

Blocking another member

If another member is bothering you and you do not want to go through the trouble of reporting that member, simply direct yourself to their profile page and find the block button located under the banner. Click the block button to stop that user from being able to contact you.

Unblocking another member

If you decide you want to unblock a member you have previously blocked, navigate to their profile and select the unblock button located in their sidebar. Failing to locate their profile:

  • 1. Login.
  • 2. Click on your username in the main navigation to present a drop down menu.
  • 3. Go to settings / account security / blocklist.

From there, find the username you want to unblock and click the "Remove block" button to revoke this block.

Posting
Posting a topic

To post a topic, navigate to the desired forum you would like to post in, from there click on the 'new post' button to begin posting.

After clicking on the topic you want to delete you will be redirected to the topic, click the trash icon and you will again be redirected to a new page where you will need to confirm the delete. If you want to continue then click delete, else you can leave the page for the topic to remain.

Publishing a poll

To submit a poll, you will need to follow the same process as you would creating a topic, except you will need to create a poll option and submit it instead of posting your topic the usual method. You can submit as many poll options as you desire, but a minimum of two options are required.

Posting a comment

To post a comment, navigate to the topic you would like to post in, from there simply click the 'post reply' button to begin writing out your message. Please note, if a topic is locked you will not be able to post a comment until it is reopened.

Removing a comment

To remove a comment you've previously posted, navigate to the topic where your comment was posted. From there, find your comment and click on the trash icon. You will be redirected to a new page where you will need to confirm the delete. If you want to continue then click delete, else leave the page to leave the comment where it is.

Private messaging
Starting a private message

Private messaging is a way to contact another member away and privately from the rest of Skillzworld. To begin a private conversation:

  • 1. Login.
  • 2. Click your username in the main navigation to present a drop down menu.
  • 3. Visit your inbox.
  • 4. Select new message.

If you want to contact another member but are unsure of what their username is but you are either following or being followed by them:

  • 1. Login.
  • 2. Click your username in the main navigation to present a drop down menu.
  • 3. Visit your profile.
  • 4. Either visit your following or followers located in your sidebar depending on who is following who.
  • 5. Locate the user you want to message and visit their profile.
  • 6. Click on their information tab, and select private message. (Note: If this user has not provided personal information then this option will not be available.)

If you do not or are not being followed by the person you want to message:

  • 1. Login.
  • 2. Navigate to the members page located in the main navigation.
  • 3. If you know the username or know part of the username then enter this into the search field to maximum your chances of finding them, else leave blank and click search.
  • 4. From here you will need to search through all of the users within Skillzworld. (Note: The users search results are listed from a-z, so if you know the first initial then it is recommended to skip through pages until you reach that letter.)

Deleting a conversation

To delete a conversation, navigate to the inbox area on your notifications page. At the bottom of the page is a list of buttons where you can either delete one conversation in particular or delete all of your conversations. This will only clear your message log and remove the conversation(s) from your message log, but the chat between you and that member will still exist.
