Title: Hello! Im new!
Post by: arishipshape on April 10, 2017, 10:39:23 am
Hi guys! I like dominion! Well, I guess you could have figured that out. This is a great forum, so I made an account. My favorite card is Possession (until I get my hands on seaside... then I love tactitian) and I am ok at dominion. I can't figure out, if you type in dominion online, and go to the first link, is that goko, or isotropic? I have an account, but cant figure out what it is... Also, apparently i'm a pawn. What does that mean? Thanks for your help! Wow, it's fun to do the prove you are human how much does silver cost.

Welcome! dominion.games is made by Shuffle iT, aka Stef and SCSN from this forum.

You are a pawn because of how many posts you have written. As you write more posts, the title changes to more expensive cards.

Favorite card is Possession? So you like torturing people? Possession is the only card in the entire game I've ever considered banning.

Anywho, welcome to the forum. I don't post often here myself, but the community has been good to me whenever I'm around.

Cool! Thanks for responding! I love possession because it requires finesse, as possession a silver, 2 copper and 2 estate hand is pretty bad. Being possessed isn't that bad (I would know). Although I do love torturing people... I generally take the curse when I get tortured.
EDIT: What is respect? How do I have 3? I am but a lowly pawn, deserving nothing (yet).

Welcome to the forums! Respect is like people agreeing with what you say. I don't hate Possession as much as other people.

Well, it's a lot more complicated than that. Actually I'd say that 90-93% of respect is given for other reasons mostly jokes that people find funny, but also basically any post that people appreciate for any reason (like interesting game reports or articles or organizing tournaments and stuff), and you can get respect when you're exactly one respect off of a funny number like 100 or 1337 because people want to be the person putting you at that funny number, you can get respect when you're exactly at a funny number because people want to break your funny number, you can get respect on your birthday because people want to congratulate you, and you can get respect when you join because people want to welcome you.

How do I give respect?

At the top right corner of every post, right next to the quote button, you can see an arrow that's pointing upwards. You can click on that.

You got my first respect for explaining how respect works. ::)
EDIT: How do you know which of your posts got respect?

You can see the number in the corner of how much respect it got and hit the upvote arrow to see who upvoted it. You won't get notifications or something if that's what you mean.

Not the arrow, but the button that looks like a person with a question mark. If you hit the upvote arrow, it just upvotes the post or removes the upvote if you already did, and you don't have it in your own posts.

Ah yes, I got confused, because for your post the arrow is replaced by the rainbow swirly guy.

No, the arrow is just gone. Everyone else has the rainbow swirly guy too.
