we encourage yourself to view the rules at http://www.xodul.com/rules.php; alternatively, you can post your doubts in our forums.

i want to buy a xodul set, where can i find one?
the creator of the game can make some sets by request; for more info contact us by e-mail: silviamgr.sissi@gmail.com.

login and registration issues

why do I need to register at all?
you may not have to, it is up to the administrator of the board as to whether you need to register in order to post messages; however, registration will give you access to additional features not available to guest users such as definable avatar images, private messaging, a custom username, etc... it only takes a few moments to register so it is recommended you do so.

i’ve lost my password!
don’t panic! while your password cannot be retrieved, it can easily be reset; visit the login page and click (?); follow the instructions and you should be able to log in again shortly.

i registered but cannot login!
first, check your username and password; if you were sent an e-mail, follow the instructions; if you did not receive an e-mail, you may have provided an incorrect e-mail address or the e-mail may have been picked up by a spam filer; if you are sure the e-mail address you provided is correct, try contacting an administrator.

why can’t i register?
it is possible the website owner has banned your IP address or disallowed the username you are attempting to register; the website owner could have also disabled registration to prevent new visitors from signing up; contact a board administrator for assistance: silviamgr.sissi@gmail.com

user preferences and settings

how do i change my settings?
if you are a registered user, all your settings are stored in the board database; to alter them, visit your “my account” panel; a link can be found at the top of pages - this system will allow you to change all your settings and preferences.

the times are not correct!
all the times are by default in UTC time, so it is possible the time displayed is from a timezone different from the one you are in; if this is the case, visit your “my account” panel and change your timezone to match your particular area; please note that changing the timezone, like most settings, can only be done by registered users; if you are not registered, this is a good time to do so.

how do i show an image along with my username?
the image which may appear along with usernames is known as an avatar and is generally unique or personal to each user; you can go to the “my account” panel to change your avatar.

posting issues

how do i post a topic in a forum?
to post a new topic in a forum, click the relevant button on either the forum or topic screens; you need to register before you can post a message.

how do i edit or delete a post?
unless you are a board administrator or moderator, you can only edit or delete your own posts; you can edit a post by clicking the edit button for the relevant post; if someone has already replied to the post, you will find a small piece of text output below the post when you return to the topic which lists the number of times you edited it along with the date and time; this will only appear if someone has made a reply, it will not appear if a moderator or administrator edited the post, though they may leave a note as to why they’ve edited the post at their own discretion; please note that normal users cannot delete a post once someone has replied.

how do i add a signature to my post?
to add a signature to a post you must first create one via your “my account” panel, then it will automatically be added to your posts.

how can i report posts to a moderator?
if the board administrator has allowed it, you should see a button for reporting posts next to the post you wish to report; clicking this will walk you through the steps necessary to report the post.

private messaging

i cannot send private messages!
there are three reasons for this: you are not registered and/or not logged on, the board administrator has disabled private messaging for the entire board, or the board administrator has prevented you from sending messages; contact a board administrator for more information.

i keep getting unwanted private messages!
if you are receiving abusive private messages from a particular user, inform a board administrator; they have the power to prevent a user from sending private messages.


what is my friends list?
you can use this list to organise other members of the board; members added to your friends list will be listed within your “my account” panel for quick access to see their online status and to send them private messages.

how can i add/remove users to my friends list?
you can add users to your list in two ways; within each user’s profile, there is a link to add them to either your friend list; alternatively, from your “my account” panel, you can directly add users by entering their member name; you may also remove users from your list using the same page.

searching the forums

how can i search a forum or forums?
enter a search term in the search box located on the index, forum or topic pages; advanced search can be accessed by clicking the “advanced search” link which is available on all pages on the forum.

why does my search return no results?
your search was probably too vague and included many common terms which are not indexed by phpBB; be more specific and use the options available within advanced search.

how do i search for members?
visit to the “members” page and click the “find a member” link.

how can i find my own posts and topics?
your posts can be retrieved via your own profile page; to search for your topics, use the Advanced search page and fill in the various options appropriately.
