GUIDE TO USING THIS NEW FORUM

myownself:
A lot of you guys seem to be having trouble using this forum, so I'm going to make a guide to help ya'll.

WHAT IS THIS HOME PAGE THING?

Well, to keep it simple, this is your recent posts page.  In here you well also find some other things.

USER INFO- This is really just a bunch of stats and stuff....not hard to figure out.

WHO'S ONLINE, BOARD STATS, AND TOP BOARDS- All you have to do is look at these.  They're pretty easy to understand.

In the middle you will find the most recent topics, and on the right you will see top posters, recent posts and the forum staff.

HOW DO I VIEW THESE NEW FORUM

This is also easier than you guys make it to be.  Basically there are 4 different categories.  These categories are then broke up into separate forums.  I.E General, and Game Sharing.  If you click one of these you will go into it and see all the threads.  This is the page where you will see an orange box that lets you make a thread.  If you don't see one that means either your blind or you don't have permission to post threads in that category.

OH LOOK A HELP TAB

Click on it!  It'll help you with anything that isn't in this thread.  If I didn't put it in this guide that means it's probably in that help tab.  You're welcome.

All these other tabs are easy and don't need explanation.  Let's move on to all the options you have when making a post.

On the top you have all your normal stuff but you will see a thing that says message icon.  If you click on the drop down box you will see a bunch of well...message icons.

Below that you have some obvious things that you see everyday on microsoft.  I'm not going to explain all of those.  Try screwing around with them.  They're pretty easy.

Below those you have a bunch of other options.  Read what they are.

You have:

INSERT FLASH---Huh, an easier way to upload sploder games
INSERT PICTURE---I don't need to explain
INSERT HYPERLING--- "  "
INSERT EMAIL
INSERT FTP LINK

Then you have more obvious things:

GLOWING WORDS
SHADOWED WORDS
MOVING WORDS
etc etc

*When using any of these click on them before entering the text."


Yeah I really don't know what else to add.  If you guys are confused about anything else, post it in here and I will address it.  I'll add more later.  This is just a guide to get you started.

What about applauding and smiting?

All it is, is a record of how many times you've been applauded or smited.

jhguy99:
So, is that what determines the karma you have?

And another thing, how does the karma tie in with the rank system?

Yes

Karma has nothing to do with rank.  Think of it as popularity.  Who would you rather talk to.  A person with high or low karma?
