Beginners lounge.

New to the community? Looking to find a place where you can hang out while getting accustomed to Geeking? If so, then the Beginners Lounge is the right place for you! The Beginners Lounge is a chat specifically made to help the newcomers of Geeking ( but our beloved veterans are welcomed as well ). If you’re having troubles navigating through the app, refer to the guide below, as it would likely be of assistance to you. ▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔ What is Geeking? • Geeking is a role-playing and social community for people that has a passion for the unique, the cool, the wild, and the weird. In here, you can meet, chat, and make friends with different people. What is Role-play? • Role-playing is a form of storytelling in which one imitates a character and the behavior of someone that is different from themselves. ▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔ App Navigation: • Feed — The ‘Feed’ is the first tab out of the five. It shows a list of the most active chats as well as the newly created posts. — In the feed, you can also create your own post or group by clicking on the plus ‘+’ sign at the upper left corner. — The right hand corner option in the ‘Feed’ tab allows you to filter what you see in the chat listings. • Explore — The ‘Explore’ is the second of the five tabs. It shows the suggested chats, though that does not necessarily mean that those chats are active. — This tab also allows you to search for three different things, which are; chats, role-plays, and people. • Activity — The ‘Activity’ tab is the third tab out of the five. It gives you access to the groups you are in, your direct messages, as well as the notifications of your friends’ posts, and the likes you gained from your own posts. • Match Me — The ‘Match Me’ is the fourth of the five tabs, and it’s the Roleplay Friend Finder feature that was added to Geeking only a few months ago. It allows you to set up a mini-profile to advertise yourself to people in the community, apart from your original profile. • More — The ‘More’ tab is the fifth and last of the five. It gives you access to things such as; * User’s Profile ~ Profile — this is where you can edit your profile photo and background, as well as your email, password, username, and biography. This also shows you the amount of karma you have, which determines how popular you are ( The amount of karma you have raises based on the amount of likes you get on your posts, and how active you are ). ~ Interests — this is where you can list out things that you like, and it shows up in your profile, under your name. ~ My Badges — this is where you can access which badges you have in possession, and allows you to switch in between them simply by tapping on whichever badge you want to show on your profile. ~ Friends — this shows you a list of your friends ( people that are following you, who you’re also following ). ~ Followers — this shows a list of the people that are following you, but you are not following. ~ Ignored Users — this shows a list of the people you are ignoring. To ignore a user, go to their profile and press on the option at the top right corner, then select the option of ignoring / blocking them. * Push Notifications — In here, you can turn off push notifications for direct messages, interactions ( likes, follows, mentions, and invites ), and posts & groups. * Virtual Store ~ Coins ( in-app currency ) — in Geeking, the in-app currency is addressed to as ‘coins,’ and these are gained whenever you reach a certain amount of karma, or when you send Geeking invites through other social media. ~ Badges — in here, you can skim through the vast selection of badges that are currently available. You can purchase badges using the in-app currency. ~ Expressions — ‘expressions’ refer to gifs that you are able to use within the chats in the community. They are also purchased with coins. App Information — In this section, you can access the app support and feedback, FAQ, the Geeking Support email, TOU/TOS, and the logout option is also at the very bottom. ▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔ Group Chats: • Creation — to create a group chat, go to your feed and tap on the plus ( + ) at the upper left corner, then select the second option, “group”. Choose your topic, if your group is public or private, and whether or not your group will be a roleplay. If you choose roleplay, you will have to choose a writing style and enter the setting of your group, which would show up as the chat’s AA. • In-group badges ~ green swords — green sword badges are only owned by chat owners / creators. They made the rules, so make sure to follow them. ~ blue shield — blue shield badges are owned by admins. The chat owner decides who gets this power, and their job is to enforce the rules and make sure that all users are in their best behaviour. • Chatting — make sure to stay kind and polite, and you’re likely to receive the same treatment from whoever you are speaking with. — to tag a user, simply tap on their name. ▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔ Reporting Issues • Mods — Mods are users that are expected to deal with issues concerning harassment, NSFW pictures, or groups and individuals that violate the TOS. — The current mods are; ~ @Valorous ~ @Shiroo ~ @Unstoppable — They are NOT responsible for glitches or errors in the app, so don’t run to them for that. • Geeking Support Team — the support team are the people that deal with technical issues in the app. If you are experiencing any problems, email them. Their email is; ~ support@geeking.co *** ALWAYS, always make sure to provide evidence when making a report. ▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔ If you have any more questions, feel free to ask the admins or the owner of the Beginners Lounge. ▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔ Here are the rules set to follow for the lounge : — Keep the chat friendly ; no fighting. — No bio requirements, this is not a roleplay chat. It's a chat mainly made to help the new Geeklings get accustomed to the community. However, that does not mean that casual roleplay upon occasion is not at all permitted. — Respect everyone if you want to be respected. LGBTQ+ Friendly. "All men and women are created equal", they say, so let's keep it that way. Regardless of one's gender and sexuality, everyone MUST be treated kindly ( unless they've done something that deems them unworthy ). — Advertisements are accepted as long as they are not spammed and they are relevant to the community. — Spam is not tolerated in here. You will be banned WITHOUT warning. — Memes are not allowed inside the chat. They aren't necessary. Much like spam, the only thing they'd do is hide posts by new Geeklings. — Please DO NOT post anything inappropriate. Failure of following this rule results in a warning or a ban, depending on what had been posted. NSFW is not allowed in Geeking public chats as per Geeking TOS. * Contact the chat owner, if you think you have been wrongfully banned.
