    I have created this thread to cover all the basics in a very short manner, to give new members an easy start, as most other "guides" are rather long and complicated for new users.

    A) Creating an account that fulfills all requirements for preorder etc.
    There are 3 steps to become “qualified”:
    1. You have a Razer ID linked to your Razer Insider account (if you are already signing in with your Razer ID, you are good to go).
    2. You have your Insider profile furnished, at least with a profile picture
    3. You have contributed at least 8 constructive messages on Razer Insider and have no warning points on you (warning point = red dot on your profile when you click on your profile pic, number of posts can be seen when clicking on your profile too)

    To fulfill this just do the following things:


    1. Click on “External accounts” and link your IDs (Tutorial) if they aren´t already.
    2. Click on “Avatar” and add a picture (196x196 works fine, larger will result in problems)
    3. A post is a comment in a thread = topic on Insider, therefore you just have to write something that is not spam (Spam: I want Nabu!, Razer Yay!, …) in 8 threads.
    To make it easier for you, here are 8 threads that you should be able to post in:
    Congratulations, you are now a qualified Insider! To learn more, continue with the next categories in this thread.

    Btw. Here are the House Rules

    B) How to make your posts "look good"
    B) Update: Read this thread [Posting Basics]
    by @Haltus Kain


    In order to make your posts look good, you should try to use these tools for formatting:

    Additionally: In order to turn a word into a link (looks better), just mark the text and then click on the link symbol in the post toolbox.

    To make it easier for other people to see where you got your information, please add your sources to the post.

    PS: The posting guidelines
    C) How and where to create a thread & Basic Searching
    Creating a thread is easy, but make sure it´s an original idea and an interesting topic.

    First of all use the search button in the top right-hand corner to see if someone had the same idea already. Therefore you have to think of keywords that might be used for this topic. If your search concludes that there is no thread covering this topic yet, you have to find the right category for your thread. It´s pretty self-explanatory, but the tricky thing is, you have to be in this Forum sub part before clicking on create thread, as the thread will be created in the active category.

    To create the thread simply click on “Create thread” on the right-hand side. Pick a title that gives the other Insiders a good idea what this thread is about, maybe add a pole and then create your content in there.
    D) The Ranking System
    D) The Ranking System, it´s completely useless at the moment! There is no benefit in having a higher rank – so don´t bother spamming your way up. You just get a fancy title.

    Here´s how you get a new title:
    • New Member: 1-7 points
    • Member: 8-27 [=3 Trophies]
    • Active Member: 28 [=5 Trophies] -62
    • Well-known member: 63+
    Trophies can be seen by clicking on someone’s profile picture and then clicking on the number next to “Trophy points”.
    E) How to pre-register and pre-order
    E) For pre-registrations etc. You need to complete step A). After this, just follow the steps in the thread for the product you would like to get. For example
    F) Signature
    F) To add a personal touch to your profile, just click on Signature after clicking on your profile pic in the top right-hand corner of the screen. Many like to add their steam profile to their signature or other stuff. The Steam signature can be created here: Steam Signature

    I hope this was helpful for you. If there is anything missing that you would like explained, just leave a comment below.

    Just wondering, don't we already have a thread for dummies by @kajira which also compiled lot of threads and details for newbies? No offense but it looks short because of the spoiler switch and with all of them expanded it is as long as the other ones.

    I know, this one focuses mainly on the "get qualified" aspect. As many people seem to struggle with this.
    Just tried to create one the way I would feel it would be the easiest for me to get qualified and informed when new. It´s like when you are problem solving something by researching on the Internet - everybody likes another approach with tutorials, just trying to fill that gap here :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:.

    Hopefully there will be an official one by Razer one day - maybe even a video tutorial.

    I have a better idea, why not bring pop up boxes showing you around Insider on your first log in and then redirect to a thread that gives all these details.?

    YES YES and YES!!!
    Great idea! It´s one of those where you are like: Why didn´t I think of this.

    We are a gaming forum: We need a "tutorial level" :D

    Although I like part of the threat, I think it's not a good idea to write a tutorial on how to be eligible for stuff. The purpose for the sales etcetera is to reward dedicated fans who really use insider. Not for fake users, who are only here for the sales. You just made it easier for those people to qualify, whereas that is the exact thing where the sales are not meant for!!

    Hmmm, I rather like your point @Vestieri
