    Hey fellow LEET users have you always questioned how to change your name add groups or even ban people well today is your lucky day because I will show you step by step how to do what you have desired <3

    First to make a forum make a server and get enough credits to make one you can do this by going
    into the leet app and scrolling down until you see forums then click purchase.
    Now go to your server and do /leet info and it will tell you the password for your
    Forum’s admin account Username:Admin Password:The password you see with /leetinfo on your server
    Then congrats you now own a forum now listen to the steps how to manage one :)
