Let us tell you all about it!
The forums consists of several categories with specific Subforums. Want to read latests News? Report a bug? Watch some clips or streamers? Maybe just chat? There are places for everything! Click on Subforum and read the pinned discussion to get all information.
Pretty simple. Go to main page, select a Subforum you are interested in, hop on and read/comment.

You can access Bookmarks by clicking a button in top right corner:
REACTIONS AND FLAGGING
You can react to every post by clicking a reaction button.
Vote Up if you like the post. Vote Down, if you do not. Awesome reaction is reserved for really cool posts. LOL is self-explanatory.
All reactions are shown on your profile page and basically form your reputation.
You can also flag posts:
- Spam -- if user is spamming posts excessively. Spam flags from several members will automatically hide posts from reported user and alert moderators
- Abuse -- if user posts inappropriate/offensive content. Alerts moderators and hides user's post after several flags
- Report -- does not trigger any automatic measure but you can report any specific posts to moderator, explaining why you find them inappropriate
We have a badges system - they are little milestones rewarded for your activity on the forum.
Full list of Badges and how to get them (and leaderboards!) -- http://forum.deadbydaylight.com/en/badges
Our forum uses Markdown text formatting. You can find a cheatsheet for it here - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Markdown
You can also use a shortcut dashboard to edit your posts:
Add pictures (and gifs!), files, links, emojis, have fun!
Tags help to understand if the discussion is closed or pinned, who is participating in it (Dev/Mod/CM), and help you with search requests. We are still forming the list of custom tags and it will be published when ready.
You can choose your avatar out of the default pool, right now members cannot upload custom avatars. This might change in the future.
Your profile has its own activity ('wall') and reactions count.
When you are warned by moderator, you will receive an e-mail and a notification.
If you are banned, you can no longer log in.
To view your warnings or messages from Mods, click on 'Moderation' button on your profile.
