How do I get feedback for my decks?
Read this article.
This is a complicated question but the simplest start is to deckcycle or feature your deck. You may also post your deck to the forums and ask for help. A good deck description helps people understand what you are looking to do. Participating in the community is a two way street and sometimes you have to give to receive--give feedback on decks that need help and put your name out there!
What kinds of questions can I ask in the MTG Q&A?
You should ask only card rules related questions in the Q&A. If you have other questions, post them to the forums.
How can I change my username?
Upgraded users can change their username. When this happens, your content will all be moved to the new name and your friends and subscribers will be notified of your name change. Your old profile will also redirect to your new one.
How do I trade through this site?
You aren't allowed to trade at TappedOut until you've been around for at least 60 days. The TappedOut community isn't a trading community, so professional traders or people who solely want to trade won't find themselves catered to. Once you're here for 60 days, you can read this article for more details.
How does Featuring/Feature tokens work?
When you feature your deck, two things happen: For the next few minutes your deck is displayed in the top bar of the website, replacing the advertisement. It is displayed to a set amount of people, so don't worry about when you feature your deck, the same amount of people will see it. For the next 16 hours your deck will appear in the Featured Decks queue on the front page. A random deck from the queue appears on the front page during this time. You can keep track of how many clicks your deck got in the "Features" link in under the profile dropdown. You can use an interesting name and a helpful description to improve how many people actually click.
What if I find a card with missing or incorrect information?
Feel free to post in the forums requesting help! You can also add or update a card to help improve deckbuilding for everyone!
Below is a guide to updating and adding new cards to TappedOut's database. It's a simple but precise process; be sure to check your spelling and information several times.
First, find the "Add, Fix Card" green button by clicking "Cards" in the header navigation bar and clicking on the set in which the card is printed. Make sure you are in the correct set for the card you are submitting!
After you click "Add, Fix Card" you will be brought to a search bar. Here, type the name of the card that you would like to add, update, or fix. If any other users have previously submitted the card, the database will automatically bring you to their entry. If no one has submitted the card, you will receive a blank form.
Fill out every relevant field with accurate and properly spelled information about the card. If you can't find information for a certain field, that's okay--leave it blank and someone can update the card when that information is available. Please follow our guidelines for uploading a card's picture. Double check your info for spelling and accuracy and then hit "Submit"!
