Accounts

I have an account, but I can't post - why not?

To be able to post in RPGDreams you need more than an account - you need to have had a character accepted to a game. This is an RP site and character-driven. If you haven't had a character accepted, you need to go through the game application process. Posting rights will come with game acceptance.

How do I create an account?

First up, we realise that the set up of this website is probably completely different to what you've encountered before and there are some important things to note!

First and foremost you only need one account! That's right - no having to create multiple accounts for multiple characters and spending endless hours logging in and out depending on who you're posting as! At RPG Dreams you only need the one account - your player account.

How do I delete/undelete my account?

At the moment, you cannot delete your account. This can only be done by an administrator. If you wish your account to be deleted, please talk to an administrator or moderator.

Please note that, once deleted, an account CANNOT be reinstated.

What happens if I leave the game? Will my account be deleted?

No - if you leave the game, your account will be changed to 'view only' status - which will allow you view access (but not posting rights) to the community. The administrators do, however, reserve the right to delete your account in cases of abuse.

I forgot my username/password.

RPGDreams is not responsible for lost passwords. Remember your passwords, and it is likely a good idea to keep the email that is sent to you when you first create an account. That will have your username on it. If you have already changed your password from the default one assigned, then it is lost. The link in the emails really is a one time use, and cannot be used again to log into your account to change the password. Please keep your passwords somewhere you can access them should you lose them! We currently have no way to retrieve them for you!

How can I change my password?

Log into your account, and go to the 'my account' section. Under 'edit', right under your username, there should be two fields for your password. To change it, simply type in your new password in both fields, and hit 'save'. Your password will be changed.

Guidelines for a good password include:

1. It should be 6-10 characters,
2. contains mixed case characters such as WmPoV,
3. contains symbols such as ! @ # $,
4. is a word that does NOT appear in the dictionary, and

Is there a way to change my username?

The only way to change your username is to create a new account at this time.

Can I add everyone as a friend at once?

No, not at the current time - that's something we're actively looking into!

Can I choose from the icons in my gallery when posting comments?

At the moment, no, but we're hoping this will change in the future and when it does, we'll let you know!

How do I view another user's gallery?

Go to their character page and click on 'view my entire gallery'.
