Sup! Welcome to the WoFMB! Here’s some stuff to help you get started:
Thread: What you’re posting on right now, a post with replies.
Bump, up, boop, mongeese/mongoose: A way to move up threads so they don’t get flooded by other posts and die.
Dead Thread: A thread that hasn’t been posted on for a long time. Let these threads rest in peace, unless they still have a use.
Bookmark: A way to save posts you like to your post history.
FWRP: A roleplay, but you can make separate threads to rp in. So there’s the main rp thread, then there are other ones for conversations between a select group of characters, or maybe for an event someones character is holding in the rp. It’s spread through the forum, hence why it’s called a ‘Forum Wide Role Play’. These tend to be seen more often on the WoFMB.
SAMB: Another MB, this one for Spirit Animals. Most MBers tend to move back and forth between there and here.
MB: Message Board.
WoFMB: Wings of Fire Message Board, what you’re on right now.
MBer: Message Boarder, a person on the message boards.
Siggy: That thing that shows up under your posts. You can make one by pressing the ‘signatures’ button at the top left of this page.
Nickname: A name someone prefers to be called other than their username, usually found somewhere in their siggy. Try to call a MBer by their nickname unless they say otherwise.
Homethread: A thread made by an MBer to write, be contacted, or dump random stuff.
Private Chat Thread: A thread for two or more MBers to chat. If you aren’t part of the thread, please don’t post on it.
Chat Tread: A thread for any MBer to post and chat on.
Forumfics: A story written by an MBer, often containing other MBers
Fanfics: The usual fanfictions, nothing bad though.
Join an Rp or two (or three or four or five...)! They help you get to know people.
That’s all I can think of right now. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask! I’ll do my best to answer.
