do I become a member of THERE?
There are two ways:
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
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)
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)
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.

Is it better to shop in THERE shops or in
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
There's an incredible variety of user-made clothing and objects to choose from. The
prices are competitive and considerably cheaper than THERE shops.
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.(Back to
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
How do I create my own clothes and stuff to use
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:
(Back to Top)
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)
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)
