     OP - November 22, 2007, 10:17 AM

    This is a work in progress and will be subject to addition and alteration.
    Please add your own suggestions in the Feedback forum.
    This thread will be stickied and locked so it doesn't get lost or cluttered.

    Also watch this video.  cool2


    1/ Can I hide my email address?

    Yes. This option is offered to you when you are completing the registration form.
    If you neglected to select it while registering go into your profile.
    Under "Modify Profile" you'll see "Account Related Settings".
    Click on the box that says "Hide email from public".
    You will then have to enter your password and click "Change Profile".
    Your email address will now be hidden from everyone except the admins.

    Please note that you will still be able to see your own email address.
    This does not mean that anyone else can see it.


    2/ Can I change the look of the forum?

    Yes. For a start the forum's default theme offers eleven options, which are quite distinct in style.
    There is a row of buttons above the forum which will light up when your cursor is over them.
    Clicking any of the buttons will select a different theme. Please note that the Azure Silk, Mircalla
    and Skyline options are not suitable for use with Internet Explorer 6. The other eight are.

    We also have a "Theme Changer" at the bottom of the column at the side of the forum.
    However, once you log out the theme set in your profile will take over next time you log in.
    If you wish to stick with one theme for some time make sure it's selected in your profile.

    Go into your profile. Under "Modify Profile" select "Look and Layout Preferences".
    Now click on the link "change" in the "Current Theme" box at the top right.
    This will bring up a range of forum themes. Select the one you want by clicking on its name.


    3/ Can I swear here?

    You betcha. Now, we're aware that this won't please everybody.
    The staff have discussed this and decided against implementing any word filters. Our reasons are;

    a) that most of us use the occasional expletive anyway so it is hypocritical to pretend to be mortified by them.
    b) that several very good fora manage to sustain good quality conversations even with the use of expletives.
    c) that we like swearing sometimes.
    d) that sites with word filters usually have posters dedicated to finding their way around them by various means.
    e) that anyone who is genuinely mortified by expletives should be responsible enough to acquire and use word filtering software of their own. It is readily available and we will not be holding your hand in this matter.

    Please note that any idiot who tries to test the limits of this policy by posting nothing but ridiculous numbers of expletives will be moderated for being a boring twat.


    4/ How do people do those short links in their posts?

    Easy. Say you have a really long, clumsy link that you wish to post.
    Start by typing the text you wish to display in your finished post. eg: LINK.
    Now highlight that text and click the third icon from the left, just above the smileys.
    It has a picture of the Earth on it and clicking it will wrap your text in [url ]  [/url] tags.

    All you have to do now is type an = sign after the first url, so text is now:

    [url=]LINK.[/url]

    Click just after the = and paste your link there, like this:

    [url=http://reallylongandclumsylink.ugly]LINK.[/url]

    This will show in your finished post as LINK.

    Please use this method when posting links that would otherwise be ridiculously long.
    It's much neater and prevents messing up people's screens with scroll bars.
    It's quick and easy once you get the hang of it.

    Note that if you are linking to another thread or post on this forum you can just post the raw link and it will automatically display as the thread title, thanks to a nifty little mod I installed.

    5/ Why do I return to the forum, and not directly to the topic I just posted in?

    This can be changed two ways:

    - Profile > Look and layout preferences > check box "return to topic after posting by default"

    - Click additional options just below the post you are about to submit and click "return to this topic" before submitting

    Inhale the good shit, exhale the bullshit.

    Thought of another one.

    6/ Quick edit feature.

    On the right side of your posts you'll see a small diamond icon with a thing that's supposed to be a pencil.
    This is the quick edit feature. It doesn't have smileys or any of the other frills but it's great for correcting typos or adding extra comments.
    Try it out.
     
    ---------------------------------

    Oh yeah, a really important one.....

    7/ Where can I get funny cat pictures?

    Right here.

    9/Manually adjusting the forum clock

    If the clock on your theme is displaying the incorrect time ...you can fix it by accessing the look and layout preference tab in your profile settings. The option should be present right under the theme changer.

    Auto detect will adjust it with your PC's local time. If this doesn't help you can enter your local time by some simple arithematic and add the number of hours to the GMT (the forums default time) by which you deviate.

    10/ Can I make small text on the forum bigger?

    Yep. If you have trouble reading the smaller text on your favourite theme hold down Ctrl and turn the mouse wheel towards you. This will enlarge all the text on the page. Reverse the process to return the text to its original size.

    11/ Multi quote feature

    First opt to reply, and then scroll down past the box you input your own text in, until you see this:



    Click on the insert quote as shown in the image for each quote you wish to respond to.

    Where can I get those fancy userbars that Os and RIBS have in their sigs?  parrot

    Right here. Use the BBC code for forum sigs and the HTML code for embedding in web pages.
    These codes will display the userbar images and turn them into a clickable link to this forum.
    The bars are named Forum_ub.png, Forum_ub2.png and Forum_ub3.png so if you feel like a change you only have to edit one number in your sig code.
