    Why am I unable to access some features nor create threads after joining GameNotOver?
    New members are placed in a temporary user group that has several limitations in place to help protect the site from spammers. Simply focus on participating in existing threads and after you meet several criteria, your account will be upgraded to full member access automatically.

    Go to your Preferences page and select your Primary Gaming Platform.

    How do I stop the site from sending me emails each time someone posts in threads I create or post in?
    By default, the system is setup to email you notifications when threads you are watching receive new posts. If you want to stop the emails, you can go to your Preferences page and uncheck the and receive email notifications of replies box and click the Save Changes button. Do not uncheck the "automatically watch threads" box or else you will not receive in-site alerts for activity in those threads which is very helpful, especially when you are asking for help.

    Does the site support special edit features like BB Codes?
    Absolutely. For more information on bbcodes, check out the BB Codes instruction page.

    Can I be a moderator?
    Please do not ask to be a moderator as most users who ask to be moderator usually want to be one for the wrong reasons.

    How do you choose moderators?
    The current staff chooses the new moderators.

    How are moderators selected?
    A user is invited to become a moderator for a variety of reasons. These reasons include remaining very active on the site over a long period of time, helping other users, posting regularly; remaining level-headed and calm even during debates, etc.
