"How do I disable Email Notifications?"

To disable email notifications, you'll need to go to your Profile page. From there, click edit profile, and just under the large words "My Profile" you'll see "Basic and Gaming Info" and "Account Settings". Click on the account settings tab. Scroll down and you'll see "Privacy Settings". Beneath that you'll see a list with some check boxes. At the bottom of the list you'll see "Recieve email Notifications". Uncheck that, and click save. 

 

"How do I set up my Social Media links on my profile" 

In order to add a Social Media link to your profile, you will need the entire URL, including https:

"What are Other Games"

"Other Games" Is an option for you to choose any game not listed in Up Your eGame's pre-registered games list. You can list your games title, and add in any applicable details you think may be needed. 

 

"How does black listing work?"

Black listing is a means for you to block a user who you no longer wish to communicate with. To black list a user, you'll just need to go to your friends list, which can be accessed by clicking on your username at the top right of the screen, and then clicking on "My Friends". At the top of your friends list, you'll see a second tab that says "Blacklist". Click on it, and then add the persons username (case sensitive), and then click "Add to Blacklist. 

When someone is on your black list, they will be unable to directly message you, and if you are on a team, or alliance with them, you will be unable to see their messages in the team chat.

"How do I gather donations for my team"

You can generate a "Donate" button on your team page by activating donations for your team.

For images, you'll find the option to upload an image just below the Gameplay Video section. You just click "Add image", then click "Image upload", and lastly, you add your Image desctiption.

"What is my team chat room, and how does it work?"

Your team chat room is a private chat room that only you and your team members can access. If someone has been removed from the team, their access to the team chat room will be lost. If one user in the chat room has addeda nother user to their personal black list, then they will not be able to see that persons messages (Everyone else will still be able to see their message, unless they also have black listed the user).

 

"What is my team news feed?"

Your team news feed is a place for you and your team to post updates publicly for your team. You can upload images, and users are able to respond to posts. Anything posted in your team news feed will send a notification to all team members. You can also choose to post it internally, or make it viewable to the public. To keep it private, at the bottom of the page while creating a news post, just above the "Create" button, you'll see a "Internal news" check box. Check that off before you create the post, and it will be kept private. 

 

"What is my team Calendar, and how do I post events in it?"

To add an event, click "Add event", at the top right corner of the calendar. From there, you can add your event title, which will be displayed on the Calendar, a date, and then any other extra details needed. Extra details will only be displayed once the event has been clicked on. 

 

"What is my Team Wiki?"

Your Team Wiki, is an available tab on your team page that you can post useful documents you think your team may require access too. This could range to google docs, wiki pages, or anything else along those lines. You won't be able to directly upload a file to your Teams Wiki tab (yet), you will only be able to link one, that has been uploaded elsewhere.
