Some infos about Discourse

Questions

Discourse is a fairly popular platform and many of the answers to questions you might have are probably out there, try googling it, check meta.discourse.org or ask us here.

Mobile

Discourse looks really great in a mobile browser and that’s how we recommend using it. You can set (personalized) browser notifications following these instructions. But there are also official iOS and Android apps, if that’s your thing. Here’s the links for Android and iOX.

Tournament Calendar

There is a calendar with all upcoming tournaments in the category Tournies. Each tournament has an associated event post (where you can rsvp) and a unique tag. You can find the calendar in the hamburger menu ( ☰ ) or by clicking here.

Direct Messages

On the top right you find your profile picture, click on it an then click the little envelope ( :email: ) (you might have to click twice), or you can click here. This will open a message menu or page where you can access direct messages. You can also create group-chats there.

Tags

Tags is the best way to find content and to help people find stuff too. Use them liberally.

Help

If something is not working, or you have a feature request, post in the Site Feedback category.

Themes

In the hamburger menu ( ☰ ), you can toggle dark and light mode once you selected your colour scheme under user > preferences > interface.

Clubs

On the forum, clubs are represented as so called user groups. You find a list of the groups in the hamburger menu ( ☰ ) or here.
If your club does not exist yet or you want to set up a subforum for your club (or your orga group or what ever secret topics you want to hide from the polo public), talk to an admin.

Profile

You can set up your profile via the menu at the top right of the page. Add a picture, location, some words about yourself, favourite bird species etc.

Admins

There’s a few things that require an admin to take care of. There is a list of admins you can find via groups in the hamburger menu ( ☰ ). Either direct message them, or tag them in a post.

@andy_h shouldn’t this be a banner again? Or is it still? don’t get it…could be kinda confusing if it’s just floating around in the ‘discussion’ category

Yes, I made a mistake. It’s now fixed
