First of all, welcome to Talk Whatever Online!

Who are we?

We are a cult entertainment forum which originally began in 2000 as 'Talk Wrestling Online'. With increased discussion about other areas of cult entertainment it was decided to change the direction of the site from just wrestling to cult entertainment as a whole.

Based in the UK, the majority of members are from the United Kingdom but we do have members from around the world.

What are my permissions as a 'Registered' Member?

All registered members will have the ability to create and reply to discussion topics on the forums as well as creating and voting in polls. In addition, you will also be able to:
  • Upload a custom avatar = up to 51200 bytes maximum
  • Send members private messages (conversations) = 3 maximum conversation recipients at a time
  • Create a signature = 160 characters maximum / 5 lines / 3 links
  • Create and reply to profile posts
  • Tag members in posts = 5 maximum per message
  • Add media to your personal albums = up to 10mb, maximum file size = 2mb / up to 10 images at a time
If you become a Subscriber you will receive additional benefits as described HERE.

So, what's first?

> YOUR PROFILE

The first thing you should do is update your profile:

- Add a 'Current Status' message

- Upload a new avatar (If you would like to use one of our previous wrestling ones, click here for info).

> REVIEW SETTINGS

Set your Privacy settings, Alert Preferences and Preferences.

Quick summary of features

> TROPHIES

The Trophies system rewards members with virtual trophies and points for meeting certain criteria. It is also linked to the user title ladder, replacing the more traditional post count method.

The user title ladder is related to the number of trophy points accumulated; the more points you earn, the higher up the ladder you move, gaining the relevant user title as each threshold is passed.

If a custom user title is in effect (Subscribers) then it overrides the trophy user title ladder.

> ALERTS

You'll notice an Alerts link near the top right, this will alert you each time any of your alert preferences are actioned.

> TAGS

All members have the ability to send an alert to a member by tagging them in discussions. If you want to alert them all you need to do is write @ followed by their username anywhere in the post, so @username will notify username of the post they were tagged in.

> FORUM POST LIKES

All members also have the ability to leave a like rating for a post, this can be anything from 'Like', 'Dislike' to 'ZZZ' or 'I'm about to cry!'.


The forum post likes will appear in the bottom right side of any posts when you hover over that area. You will not see them on any of your own posts.
