Forum FAQ's

PostPosted by missemma » Tue Mar 29, 2016 4:01 pm

Just a few things to help you out when posting on the forum, there might be some things that are confusing to begin with so we've made this FAQ so if you need help with anything you can look for it here, examples included to make it easier.


- please note when you sign up, there is a default setting that other users can contact you via email. if you do not wish to have this function enabled you will need to disable it via the following method:
user control panel > board preferences > users can contact me via email > no.


- To insert a gif into your avatar you will need to host this offsite as the size limit on here is small. To do this follow this method:
upload your image to an outside host (tinypic/imgur) > user control panel > profile > edit avatar > link off-site > insert your link in the box > submit.
Please ensure your gif does not go over the avatar size of 200x200.

- The edit post function is 15 minutes long. After this time, if you wish to have a post edited/deleted then please either contact a moderator/admin or use the "report post" function. If deemed appropriate, we will be able to help you with this.

1. How do I insert a YouTube video?
Use the YouTube button from the panel.
You will need to know the address of the video you wish to insert which you can get from copying and pasting from the address bar of the video you are watching. You will need to use the full link, mobile links will not work.
You'll then need to remove the "s" from https://, and if there is an ampersand or question mark near the end of the link you'll need to remove that and anything after it as well. Once you have this, insert it between the youtube tags.
example:
Code: Select all
 [YouTube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=io6M-A0MARQ[/YouTube]


2. How do I insert an image in my post?

To insert an image, you will need a direct link to the image.

If your image is already online, this link can be obtained by right clicking the image and clicking "copy image address", or opening the image in a new tab and copying the link from the address bar.

If you would like to post an image from your computer, you will need to upload your image to an external image hosting site like imgur.

When you have the direct link to the image {eg. http://i.imgur.com/G3Kwl9c.jpg}, you will need to paste the link into the text editor between image tags, like below.

Code: Select all
[img]http://i.imgur.com/G3Kwl9c.jpg[/img]



3. How do I insert a tweet?

Use the Twitter button from the panel.
You will need to know the link of the tweet you wish to insert. Once you have this, insert it between the twitter tag, delete the s from the https://
example:
Code: Select all
[Twitter]http://twitter.com/danisnotonfire/status/703339907796885506[/Twitter]



4. How do I insert an Instagram post?

Use the Instagram button from the panel.
You'll need the http:// details for this which you can get from your browser. The only section you need is the following: Image
Insert that link between the instagram tag.
example:
Code: Select all
[Instagram]BDdjcKgJgCj[/Instagram]


5. How do I used the spoiler tags?
If you've got something you want to include in your post but you're worried about spoiling it for others, then use the spoiler button.
example:
Code: Select all
[spoiler]oh hello, thank you for reading [/spoiler]


6. How do I use the trigger tags?
If you've got something to say but you think if may be triggering for other people, then please use this button as it will prevent people from reading it, specify what your warning is within the tag.
example:
Code: Select all
[trigger]missemma post warning[/trigger]

7. How do I use the emoticons of Dan and Phil's faces?
Image Image Image Image Image Image Image

The lovely emoticons of Deppy's faces are all located in this thread.

Find the emoticon you want to use and right click and choose "copy image address" or "copy image location" or something of the sort. Then paste it in between the [img ] and [/img ] tags, and you're all set!


8. How do I access emoticons not on the main "post reply" page?
Just click "view more smilies." There are two pages.

10. How do I change my username?

If you would like to change your username, you can make a request in the request thread or send a private message to any moderator. Please note, we’ll allow one username change per user with no question, as long as your preferred username does not break a site rule. After this, you will need to offer a compelling reason for a second name change, which will only be given at the discretion of the moderators.

11. How do I delete my account?

To discuss your account, please send a private message explaining your situation to any moderator.
