Guide for New Members!
Bearville Insider is a website, more specifically a forum, or message board, that can tell you about the new exciting updates and information about both Build-A-Bearville and Build-A-Bear Workshop. Bearville Insider is also know as BI.
You can get to the FAQ section by clicking on the link that looks like this:
Or to make it easier, CLICK HERE to go to the FAQ section.
The FAQ section is very important to read and can answer many questions you may have about this forum. It will be very helpful in starting you off here.
The rules are VERY IMPORTANT to read, understand, and follow.
Breaking the rules will result in consequences.
There are rules that pertain to each specific section are in either the "Notices" box or in the stickies.
The rules can also be read in either one of these places:
There are SO many ways to make new friends on here.
Making a thread in the Aloha! section will help start you off. Here you can introduce you and your furry friends to the members of the forum so they can welcome you and learn alittle more about you. You may have already made one!
The Aloha! section looks like this:
Another way to make friends is in the DCT or Daily Chat Thread where you can have conversations with multiple people about anything (anything appropriate of course).
The DCT is located in the Coffee House section.
A new DCT is made everyday. It is titled something random.
For example the one shown says "A Toy Story DCT for Saturday 14th November"
This forum is made up of threads and posts.
There button allows you to create a new thread. Threads NEED to pertain to the section that they are. For example, if you are asking a question, the thread should be created in the Yikes! I need help section. Members of the forum will reply to these threads by posts.
This is what the button looks like:

You can post by scrolling all the way down to the bottom of the page.
You can type what you want to say to reply to that thread.
When you first become a member on BI, you are a knut or otherwise a new member. To become a Polar Bear you must post 10 times in any section of the forum. After you have became a polar bear, you can now add friends to your friends list.
Visitor Messages or VMs enable you to leave messages to other members and for other members to leave you messages as well. Everything you say needs to be appropriate.

Some things on Bearville Insider might be confusing at first. If you ever need help, any Moderator, Administor, or member such as myself would be happy to answer any questions you may have. As time goes on, you'll become more familar with BI.
Again, welcome to Bearville Insider. I hope this guide will help you get a head start here.
