The forums are a wealth of great information! You can search the threads to find out about the topic that interests you. Current events, notices (and our official contests!) are posted there too – you’ll find them in the ‘Sticky’ area at the top of each forum category.
You can get to the forums from the Community Tab on your Home Page. There’s a massive ocean of information here. To make it easier to look through:
- Read the “sticky” threads (the first posts at top of each forum, prefixed by the word ‘sticky’) These are posted by SmallWorlds staff.
- Use the forum search option. The example below teaches you how to search the forums by player/avatar name. You can also search by topic: just put in a keyword instead of an avatar name. For example, “pet tricks”, “magic items”, “popular missions”, etc.
- Read the new posts each day. On slower days there will be time to read some older posts.
Searching the Forums
- Go into the Forum Category you wish to search.
