How do I become a member of THERE?

There are two ways:

  1. One is to go to the THERE website and fill out their application form. This form will include a quick "test" of your system to see if your PC meets the minimum requirements needed to run THERE software. If so, your application will be submitted and you will be provided with a link to download the software.  If not, upgrade baby!  You don't wanna miss this!

  2. The second method is for you to referred by an existing member. THERE will send you an invitation to join and your invitee will be rewarded with bonus Tbucks when you sign-up (hey, maybe you could get a kickback!)  ;)  (But don't forget, you will still need to meet the minimum system requirements.)   (Back to Top)

How do I do all those cool emotes I see other people doing?

Besides the emotes that are listed in game, there are also several other neat actions your avatar can use to display emotion.  Rather than list them all here, it might be easier for you to go to the ThereFrisky website and print the extended list they've created:  Emote List 

One thing to remember is that all emotes are activated by using an asterisk at the beginning of the command.  (i.e., 'yay), while some actions are "increased" in degree by adding more asterisks before them (i.e., '''yay).   However, not all emotes are increased using the multiple asterisks.  (Back to Top)

How do I hide the emote command from showing up in my chat bubble?

All you have to do is add an asterisk to the end of the command. (i.e., 'yay')  (Back to Top)

Is it better to shop in THERE shops or in auctions?

There are advantages (and drawbacks) to both.

  • THERE Shop Advantages:
    With THERE shops, the advantage is that any clothing you buy is guaranteed to match with any skintone you may have.  Also, if you do not like the object (clothing or otherwise) you purchased, you can get a full refund of the price if returned within 10 minutes of purchase.  In addition, there are some objects, such as hair and eyebrow colors, that can only be found in THERE shops (unless someone re-sells items they bought there in the auctions.)

  • THERE Shop Disadvantages:
    The prices for clothing and objects is considerable more expensive than what can be found in the auctions.  For a newcomer with limited resources, this can be a real hindrance.

  • Auction Advantages:
    There's an incredible variety of user-made clothing and objects to choose from.  The prices are competitive and considerably cheaper than THERE shops.

  • Auction Disadvantages:
    If you don't like what you purchased, returning the merchandise does NOT give you a full refund.  In fact, depending on the wholesale value of the item, it may take over half of what you paid.  You are better off putting it back up for auction to recoup your losses.  Also, when shopping for clothing in the auctions, you need to be conscious of items that are skintone-specific.  Some clothing articles will go with any skintone, but others are geared toward only one.  Watch the auction descriptions or contact the designer to be sure.

Overall, shopping on THERE is one of the funnest aspects (well, for me it is!) and whether you choose THERE Shops or auctions, you're bound to find what you need to get the most out of the game.

NOTE: Be sure to use the "Try Me" feature in both the shops and auctions.   It'll give you a chance to see how something looks on you or in your home or portazone.

How do I create my own clothes and stuff to use in THERE?

THERE provides tool to help users become developers.  For more information about how to create your own clothes, vehicles, and other objects in THERE, go to the THERE Developer website(Back to Top)

What do I make money in THERE?

This is a common question of new THERE members.  There are many different ways to go about making money (Tbucks), but the main thing is that you need is to be creative and determined.  Here are just a few ways to make money in there:

  • Become a THERE designer (clothing, vehicles, furniture)

  • Host events (such as buggy races, parties, or fashion shows)

  • Participate in raffles, contests, and races that pay-out Tbuck awards

  • Offer services (taxi, tour guide, event helper)

  • Sell back Skill rewards (items you earn for gaining skill).  My buddy, HUGSaLOT, has written up a great information page about the items you receive for each skill level.  Check it out here.

  • Break out the VISA or MasterCard and buy Tbucks from THERE (this is the easiest and most lucrative method, but also not always an option for everyone)  (Back to Top)

How do I find my way around in THERE?

You'll be given some initial links under the "Places" link on your control panel, and you can use the maps within THERE to see where you are, but if you reeeally want to find your way around, then there's nothing like ThaLasso's THERE Maps. These maps will not only tell you about the many places you can go in THERE, but will often transport you there as well. I use this site just about every time I launch THERE (and it's an absolute must for me when questing). ThaLasso has spent an incredible amount of time plotting coordinates and labeling locations. You will never be lost in THERE thanks to him.  (Back to Top)
