Basic Training FAQ
« on: March 02, 2013, 04:29 pm »
Welcome to the Sploder Community forum!
We appreciate your membership, and we want to ensure that you have fun in a safe environment that fosters creativity.

With that being said, this thread will help you navigate the site. Our forum experts are happy to lend a hand if you have any questions or concerns.

I have compiled a list of the frequently asked questions that members usually ask during their first times on the forum. Please refer to this list before you ask a question. Avoid redundancy.

_________________________________________________________

FAQ

What's the point of a forum?
A forum is for fun group discussions that everyone can partake in.

Is the forum safe?
Absolutely. The forum staff is keeping the forum on watch for any security threats or offensive posts. With that in mind, we cannot stop every inappropriate post from ever being made. There is a chance that you might encounter crude posts that we have not cleaned up yet. Check with your parents and make sure you have their permission to use the forums before you delve any further.

What are the ranks?
Administrator
General
Lieutenant
Soldier
Private
Prisoner of War
Banned

How can I rank up?
Be respectful of other members. Have a good sense of humor. Don't take yourself too seriously.

How do I make a reply?
At the top and bottom of every discussion, there is an orange "reply" button. Click it.

How do I make a discussion?
Enter a category and at the top of the list, there is an orange "start a new topic" button.

How do you get a custom title?
At this time, there is no way for Privates to have custom titles. Look for a change in this policy very soon.

Why are my posts being changed to splode?
That's the forum censor. It catches most profanity and helps Sploder to be a more hospitable place. Don't bypass the censor, it's there for a reason.

What can I not post?
Anything that violates Sploder's Terms of Service . A good rule of thumb: if you have to wonder whether your post might be in bad taste or or not, it probably is.

Update One: Please no off topic comments.
Update Two: Only Soldiers+ are allowed to answer questions. This is to make sure that the most accurate information is presented, in order to prevent confusion.

POW is temporary. "Banned" usually refers to a permanent ban.

Why the new thread?

The old thread was made during the days of Vanilla. Most of the information was outdated or irrelevant.

Can only Soldiers+ see the MS Office?

Not quite sure.  ???
Let me check for you.

Would making threads with feature request for other games increase or decrease chances of becoming an Editor yourself?
Main Project: Conquest

Game in progress:
Conquest
Diversion I
Frigate

Press the orange topic button that I talked about in the FAQ.

Decrease.
If you want your game to get attention, you can always hype it a little bit or make a thread about the game in the "Game Sharing" category.

How long does it typically take for a member applying for membership to get accepted onto the forums? When I signed up I believe I was accepted in about a day or so, but my friend Prodigee signed up over a week ago and he is yet to be accepted.

It can take anywhere from a day to a few months or more, it all depends on when the Lieutenants and Generals get around to it really.

No, not my own game.
Say diverse times wasnt featured, if i were to suggest that to get featured and was agreed with, .
Would that increase chances of becoming editor Because ive seen people do that before.

With SuperLuigi's current system; yes it would, as it would prove you have a good eye for a quality game.

I'll assume you already know how to edit your signature. If you don't, tell me.

Use this code:
Code: [Select]
[img]link to image goes here[/img]
Ex. If I wanted to post a picture of this: http://cdn.sploder.com/images/home_platformer_action.gif  ---- I would turn it into this:
Code: [Select]
[img]http://cdn.sploder.com/images/home_platformer_action.gif[/img]
It would then appear as:

What does sinking a thread mean?

On the Vanilla Forums we used to have, sinking was a power soliders had until mid-july.

It meant that no matter how many posts were posted in a thread after the sink, it wouldn't rise to the top.

On there forums, it generally means that a thread went down from the main thread view quickly.
