Registration

"If I don't liked this site?"

Where to start?

  • Registering an account is the very first and most basic step in beginning your journey on this site.
  • To register you will need to enter your name, E-mail and password.
  • Remember: Your E-mail will be used as your login to the site. You also have the full right not to specify your last name when signing up. In case you lost your password to enter the site, use the recovery page

By registering on the site, you agree to site rules and privacy policy


Your Profile

  • After registering, you will automatically be redirected to your profile.
  • You can edit it anywhere and anytime you want.
  • Hint: To make your profile look nice and presentable, you can fill it with information or upload a photo that highlights, for example, your deep inner world.

You are the one who decides how much information your friends need to know about you.

Set your own privacy settings

  • You can define exactly who can access certain types of information and sections on your page.
  • You have the right to block access to your page from search engines and unregistered users.
  • Remember: privacy settings will be expanded in the future.

Profile URL

  • After registering your page, you get a personal ID like @id12345
  • The default ID, which was obtained after registration, cannot be changed
  • But in the settings of your page you can bind your personal address and this address can be changed at any time
  • Hint: You can take any address that is at least 5 characters long. Try to get a cool URL :)

Any short address in Latin small letters is supported; the address may contain numbers (not at the beginning), periods, and underscores (not at the beginning or end)

Share your photo moments

  • The "Photos" section is available in your profile as soon as you sign up
  • You can browse user photo albums and create your own
  • Access to all your photo albums for other users is controlled in the page privacy settings

You can create an unlimited number of photo albums from your travels or events, or just to store memes


Upload and share videos with your friends!

  • You can upload an unlimited number of videos and clips
  • The "Videos" section is controlled by the privacy settings

Videos can be uploaded bypassing the "Videos" section by simply attaching them to a new entry on the wall:

Importing videos from YouTube

  • In addition to uploading videos directly, the site also supports embedding videos from YouTube

Создавайте плейлисты

  • Вы можете слушать аудиозаписи в разделе "Мои Аудиозаписи".
  • Этот раздел также регулируется настройками приватности.
  • Самые прослушиваемые песни находятся во вкладке "Популярное", а недавно загруженные — во вкладке "Новое"
  • Найти нужную песню можно в поиске.
  • Чтобы добавить песню в свою коллекцию, наведите на неё и нажмите на плюс.

Важно: песня не должна нарушать авторские права

@tour_section_6_title_2

  • Если вы не можете найти нужную песню, вы можете загрузить её самостоятельно.
  • Вы можете создавать сборники треков во вкладке "Мои плейлисты".

Follow what your friends write

  • The "My News" section is divided into two types: local feed and global feed
  • The local feed will only show news from your friends and groups

No recommendation system. It's up to you to create your own news feed


Follow what topics are discussed on the site

  • The global newsfeed will show entries of all site users and groups
  • Viewing this section may not be recommended for sensitive or fragile people

The design of the global feed does not differ in any way from the local feed

The feed has many types of content, from regular photos and videos to anonymous posts and polls


Create groups!

  • The site already has thousands of groups devoted to various topics and fan associations
  • You can join any group you want. And if you haven't found a matching one, you can create your own
  • Each group has its own section of wiki pages, photo albums, block of links and discussions

The "My Groups" section is on the left menu of the site

Group example

Manage your group with a friend

  • Manage the group in the "Edit Group" section under the community avatar
  • Create a team of administrators from the usual participants or those whom you trust
  • You can hide the administrator you want, so he will not appear anywhere within your group

Groups are often real organizations whose members want to stay in touch with their audiences


Oops

  • I would be very happy to do a tutorial on this section, but the section is still under development. For now, we'll skip this section of the tutorial and move on...

Themes

  • After registering, you will have a standard theme installed as your appearance
  • Some new users may be a bit intimidated by the current stock theme, which reeks of quite antiquity
  • But no worries: You can create your own theme for the site by reading documentation or choose an existing one from the catalog

A catalog of themes is available under "My Settings" in the "Interface" tab;




Profile and group backgrounds

  • You can set two images as the background of your page
  • They will be displayed on the sides of those who come to your page

Background setup page


  • Hint: before setting the background, try to experiment with the layout: try to mirror the future background image, or even just create a nice gradient

Examples of pages with set backgrounds


With this feature you can add more personality to your profile

Avatars

  • You can set the option to show the user's avatar: standard, rounded and square (1:1)
  • These settings will only be visible to you


Editing the left menu

  • If necessary, you can hide unnecessary sections of the site
  • Remember: The essential sections (My Page; My Friends; My Answers; My Settings) cannot be hidden

View of posts

  • If you're tired of the old wall design that was in the once-popular original VKontakte, you can always change the look of the posts to Microblog
  • The view of the posts can be changed between the two options at any time
  • Note that if you selected the old view of the posts, the latest comments will not be loaded



Microblog



Promocodes

  • VepurOVK has a promo code system that aims to add some currency (rating percentages, votes, and so on)
  • Such coupons are created for some significant events and holidays. Follow the VepurOVK Telegram channel

Promocodes consist of 24 digits and letters


  • After activating a promocode, the currency set by the administrators will be transferred to you
  • Remember: All promocodes have a limited activation period

Successful activation (for example, we were credited with 100 votes)


Attention: Once a promocode is activated on your page, the same promocode cannot be reactivated




Mobile version

  • At the moment there is no mobile web version of the site yet, but there is a mobile app for Android
  • OpenVK Legacy is an VepurOVK mobile app for retro Android devices with the design of the original VKontakte 3.0 app from 2013
  • The minimum supported version is Android 2.1 Eclair, which means devices from the early 2010s will be quite useful

Where can I download this?

  • Release versions are downloaded through the official F-Droid repository
  • If you are a beta tester, new versions of the app are posted to a separate update channel
  • Note: The app may have various bugs and problems, if you encounter a mistake, please report it to the official app group

This concludes the tour of the site. If you want to try our mobile app, create your own group here, invite your friends or find new ones, or just have some fun in general, you can do it right now with a small registration
