Getting Started Guide For New Members

Getting Started with the UK Sex Forum

First, a couple of very simple points for new members.

1. Do not send unsolicited private messages to members (other than the forum staff) who you have never engaged with on the forums, chat or comments system. Doing this mayl result in your account being banned if we receive complaints.

2. Introduce yourself on the forum here : http://www.uksexforum.co.uk/community/forum-22.html

Unlike many other forums, we also have a number of special social-networking features to make your time here a more fun and fulfilling experience. Some of the features may take a little getting used to, so this guide aims to get you up and running with essential information you need to get you up and running.

1. Completing Your Profile

A good profile is the best way to start making friends and enjoying the best of what the forum offers. You can access all of the various profile settings from the 'My Account -> Edit Settings' (called User CP if you are on our mobile site) - on the left hand of this page are links to the various setting. There are quite a few things you can change, so below are the most important ones.

Your Avatar

Our user profiles have a fairly extensive set of options, so in addition to the information you provided when you registered, you may want to improve your profile so people can get to know you better.

The first thing to do is select or upload an Avatar (the little picture that appears next to your name). An avatar makes your posts stand out and allows your friends to easily identify you.

You can select an Avatar from one of our galleries or you can upload a photo or graphic yourself. If you are uploading your own, please note that we do not allow cock or pussy pictures as an avatar.

To change your avatar, click here

Information about you

You can add lots of additional information about yourself including a short bio. Most of the fields are optional, but remember, a good and informative profile will help you make friends more easily.

To complete your profile click here.

2. Getting Started with the Forum

From the forum home page you will see at the top of the screen the most recent topics and posts active on the forum. This is a good way to keep up with the latest discussions.

Underneath this, you will see some of the most recent uploads to peoples' photo galleries. To view a photo, just click on it. We'll cover the galleries in more detail later.

Below the photos, you will see the main listing of all the forums on the site. These are broken down into different categories with the category name on the left and details about the most recent post on the right.

To read a forum, just click on the category name and you will see a list of threads in that category.

To read an existing thread, click on the thread name. To post a new thread, just click the New Thread button at the top right.

To reply to a thread, use the quick-reply box at the bottom, or click the reply button for the advanced reply box (with formatting, pictures etc).

To add a picture into your post or thread, please refer to the help document here

3. Making Friends

You should only try to add someone you've already interacted with on the forum, chat or comments as it is bad etiquette to just 'cold call' members and most likely that person will reject your friendship request.

If you would like to become friends with another member, first view their profile. You can view profiles by clicking on a persons avatar or username. You can also search for members from the member list. On that person's profile, you will see a button to 'Add as Friend'. This will inform that person that you'd like to be friends and if they do accept you will receive a private message telling you so. To view your friends and friends requests at any time, you can access your friends page from the top menu My Account > Manage Friends List.

Once you have some friends, you can also make them a VIP through your friends page. VIP friends have access to a special gallery where you can upload your most intimate photos for their eyes only (details below)

3. Your Photo Galleries

All active members of the forum have their own photo galleries where you are permitted to upload sexy photos and images.

There are 4 types of gallery:

Public Gallery (photos uploaded here will be visible to everyone who comes to the forum, even if they aren't members)

Members Only Gallery (photos uploaded here will be visible to anyone who is a UK Sex Forum member)

Friends Only Gallery (photos uploaded here will be visible to people on your friends list only)

VIP Only Gallery (photos uploaded here will be visible to friends you've set as VIPs only)

To upload a photo, select a gallery and then click the Upload button on the top right. When you upload your photo you will have an option to include a caption and also to change which gallery it is placed in. Photos should be in JPG, PNG or GIF format.

Please note that we do have some rules on which types of photo may be uploaded. Please read them here.

4. Viewing Other Peoples' Photo Galleries

You can view other photo galleries by clicking on a member's profile. You will then see the photos which you have permission to view.

When viewing a photo, you can 'Love' the photo which registers that you really like that persons photo. You can also leave a comment on the photo if you want to say something or ask a question.

5. Friends Activity Feed

Once you have some friends, you will be able to quickly see what they've been up to as well as any actvity on your photos (comments etc). To access the feed, go to My Account > My Friends Activity Feed, or use the buttons in various places around the site.

6. Chatroom

The chatroom can be accessed via the link at the top of the screen. At the moment, chatrooms are only open on Thursdays from 8.00pm, but this will changeto be more frequent as our membership grows.

7. Sending Private Messages

You can send private messages to other members by clicking on the Send Private Message button on their profile or at the bottom of one of their posts. Sending a private message is very similar to sending an email. Please treat the private messaging system respectfully and do not use it to send spam or unsolicited requests.

8. Blocking and Ignoring Other Members

If you should come across a member who is driving you nuts, you can easily block them. Blocking a member will also remove them from your friends list. To block a member, go to My Account > Manage Ignore List and enter the username you want to block. You can un-block a member from the same page. If a member is being particularly troublesome, please report them to a moderator.

9. Rules, Your safety and Further Information


You can access this from the Rules and Information Forum
You can read our terms and conditions and privacy policy using the links at the bottom of the home page.

Thank you for reading this short guide. We hope you have fun!

Jeez, did you see that head come apart?

RE: Getting Started Guide For New Members

Hey, got a quick Q: we're running a huge £500 Christmas sex toy give away and it would be great to get it listed in the Competition section. Any way you can help with that? Seems to be locked at the moment. Cheers, Rose
