This section is for people who are inexperienced with forums or for people who just want to know more about this academy and forums in general. This guide is all typed up and the pictures I use are all screenshot'd by myself so I'd appreciate it if you don't copy and paste this onto your own forum. This guide is done for the good of the academy and it is a waste of my time so please, don't steal or plagiarize any of this. If any part of this guide is found somewhere else, I'll have that forum reported.

[Legem - Rules]


Rules can be found here!

Rules are a must. You do not have to read all of it. At least read the general rules and understand them. We won't enforce rules so strictly but, we do expect you to follow them most of the time. You can contact staff if you need help, assistance, or you just want to ask a question.

[Regium - Staff]


The staff are what keeps this place running smoothly and we exist to help you all. So please, try to get to know us a bit.

Here are the Staff rooms. You can post questions, concerns, or just a friendly hi. We're pretty friendly and open. However, there are times where we will be strict and there will be times where we will need to prioritize our lives before the forums. So we'll ask for your patience and understanding as our payment for our work here.

Lastly, please don't beg to be a part of the staff here! If we are in need of more people to help out around the forum, the Admins will pick the most qualified.

[Experiri - Rankings]


Cryo academy first started with the dorm system and testing however, we soon developed our own way of doing things. Our academy uses rankings and when you first join, you're automatically placed in the lowest ranking. No worries! You can rank up by dueling!

From lowest rank to highest:
Stardust [1-10]
Star [11-20]
Shooting Star [21-30]
Nova [31-40]
Quasar [41-50]

One of the quickest ways to rank up is to be active! Our academy tries to hold daily quick tourneys on the chatbox!

You can click preview at the bottom to see how your signature looks like before you save it.

Code:

[Pecuniam - Experience]


Dueling is one of the main activities in this academy. It helps sharpens your skills, knowledge, and it also helps you gain exp for every win.

Duels

We have several types of duels:

Normal Duels: Regular 2/3 Match. 1 vs 1
Special Duels: Duels with special rules applied at the beginning of the game. 1 vs 1
Tag Team Duels: Team Duel. 2 vs 2
Survivor Mode: Deck endurance test. 1 vs Staff
Russian Roulette: Random Deck Test
Wars: We hold war tryouts whenever our academy is challenged to a war. You receive exp for every opponent you defeat in the war and just by participating.
Tournaments: Like any other academy, we also hold tournaments of all sorts and the prizes can range from exp to graphics. This is one of the quickest ways to earn large amounts of exp.

Before you start dueling, there are some decks that we do not allow!

+ Stall: A deck full of spells, traps, and monsters used to well, stall the opponent.
+ Burn: A deck full of cards that waste away at your opponent's life points. The max number of burn cards allowed in a deck is 10. This may be changed.
+ Exodia: This deck is able to FTK and the win is a win condition. Meaning that solemns cannot negate it.
+ Deck Destruction: Mill decks like empty jars

For more information on how much exp you gain: Click here

Our ban list usually changes so check Here





Duel Points

Our academy now offers a currency system along with the exp system! Now you may earn DP from duels and tourneys.

[Discere - Forum :: Posting]


A forum is basically a social place by posting messages. I will go through briefly about some of the forum goodies.


When you enter a thread and scroll all the way to the bottom, you should see the same box as in the screenshot. It's a quick reply box. Which means you can just type your reply to the thread there and send. Instead of pressing [Reply to Thread].

The little white boxes above the reply box are optional. Basically from left to right:

+ Bold
+ Italicize
+ Underline
+ Quote
+ Host an image / image upload
+ Image
+ Link
+ Text Color
+ Smilies
+ Other


Left of the very bottom, there is new topic and locked.

New topic allows to you to make a NEW THREAD.

When a forum is locked, it means that you can't post replies.


Quote to quote a user's post and edit to edit your own post. Please use the edit option to avoid double posting a fix to your mistakes.


This is found at the bottom of the home page.
It shows the forums statistics from messages to how many users have registered.

It also shows online users, upcoming birthdays, and users on the chat box!

The legend shows what groups our forum has and what people are in those groups.

[Loqui - Chat Box]


The chat box is a place where you can talk to forumers who are on at the moment. Here, you can just chill and relax or, you can go on and ask for things. Sometimes staff members besides the chat box mod are on so you could ask them questions as well.

The chat box is located at the top of the forum page


Simply press log in to go on. You may have to wait a few seconds for the chat box to load.

Now I'll do a quick explanation of chat box features:


Red: The list of online users and users with the "@" have chat box powers.
Orange: Announces who just joined the chat or who left the chat
Yellow: A chat box command
Green:
- "B" = Make your text bold
- "I" = Italicize your text
- "U" = Underline your text
- "S" = "Strike"/Cross out your text
- "A" = Change your text color
- "Smiley Face" = Emoticons
Purple: Commands and the space where you enter messages
