Welcome to Warrior Cat's Online's official Guide. Joining a new site, especially with an unfamiliar layout, can often be quite a daunting process, so here are some tips for navigating and creating an account on our website. First of all, a brief introduction. Warrior Cat's Online is a thread-based roleplay site, used by people of all ages and abilities. For more info on roleplay and how it works, look below.
Before you can actually do any of the roleplaying, you will need to create an account on our site. There are two methods for this. If you already have a Webs account, you can simply sign in using that account. If not, you will need to create another following these simple steps:
1 - Click the 'Register' option, located in the upper right corner of the page, beneath 'Members Area'. You will then be redirected to the Sign Up page.
2 - Fill in the required information. Your Display Name will be the name that you will be recognized as on the site. Choose something relating to yourself, preferably the name of your desired character/s. Please avoid naming yourself something ending in 'Star', as this can cause confusion. You can change this at a later date, so don't worry if you change your mind.
3 - You will need to check the email address that you entered for a confirmation email. Please do not send one back. After clicking on the link provided, you will be redirected to your profile page. Spend some time editing and personalizing it, using the advice below.
Next, you can set up and personalize your profile. Depending on the individual, you may want to include different information, but here are some guidelines and suggestions for what you might put.
Now, you may want to consider your profile image. Please use a picture of one of your planned characters, as it helps to describe them better. Usually, a main character is chosen. You may also use art as your profile picture, but ONLY if it belongs to you. Although this is not in the rules, it is highly impolite to use an image without the direct permission of the owner or creator. If you cannot find an appropriate image, click here for a wide selection of available photographs that may match your character. Also, please do NOT use an inappropriate or 'mature' image, or your account will be deleted without warning.
Once you have chosen an appropriate image, you can begin to fill out the About Me section of your profile. It is recommended that you use this space to describe your character/s, or store their details for your own use as well as other users. This will help with organisation and enhance your roleplaying with others, as they will be able to see your character's information in more detail. Remember, you CANNOT put ANY images on your profile, or anywhere else on the site, excluding your profile image. You may, however, use links. This is due to our lack of bandwidth, which can often cause the site to shut down. To see more information on this, search the internet or check our recent blog posts in the Site News area of the website, which can be located using the navigation bar at the top of the page.
You may also want to edit your signature, which can be found beneath any posts you make on the site. This can be anything you want, within reason. Once again, NO inappropriate content and NO images are allowed here. Please try to keep your signature short, and include minimum links. You could include a list of your characters here, but preferably no descriptions, or some of your favourite quotes.
If you don't have time to fill out your profile or signature straight away, or would prefer to do so at a later date, you can edit your profile at any time by clicking the Edit Profile link beneath your profile image when on your profile, or in the Members Area section at the top of the sidebar.
You can post here if you your cat is in RiverClan. You do NOT need to make your own thread - these will be deleted by an admin. Instead, choose one of the threads already created, and post your roleplay there. An example of what the site prefers will be shown below. Please do NOT post in the leader's den or the medicine cat's den without permission before hand.
