Understanding The Ultiworld Forums And The Comments Section

Last March, we introduced the Ultiworld Forums, a new area for discussion and comments.

As long-time readers have certainly noticed, comment frequency on Ultiworld articles has declined (although, generally, average comment quality has gone up). Discussion certainly isn’t what it used to be.

That’s on us. We really have not done a great job of describing how the forums work or why we made the switch in the first place, and the new system has understandably been confusing to a lot of users.

We are hoping to turn that around this year. The forums are actually really simple, powerful, and fun to use once you get used to them. So we made a YouTube video tutorial series to actually show you how they work. We are also going to be doing a lot more active moderation and discussion with special guests, Q&As, and more to make being a forums user actually useful and not a burden!

If you have ideas on how we can make them better or easier to use, please let us know. For now, check out the videos below and, if you don’t already have an Ultiworld account, join for free right here (it takes less than 30 seconds). You can always sign in or sign up from the top right corner of the website as well.
