Title: Guide to the Forums
Post by: Evesy on April 12, 2013, 05:44:34 PM
Since these forums are new to most of us and it isn't easy navigating around them, I'll post some simple instructions on how to do various things. If you think I've missed anything, let me know...

Changing Timezone

To change your timezone do the following: Profile --> Account Settings --> Modify Profile --> Look & Layout. From here you are able to change both the time offset (to match your timezone) as well as the time and date format the forum will display.

Turning off Notifications

You might find that you're being notified of everything that's being posted, this can easily be turned off.
Profile --> Account Settings --> Modify Profile --> Notifications. From here, untick the box that says "Turn notification on when you post or reply to a topic", then further down the page tick all the boxes and click Unnotify. You'll still be able to see replies to your posts and new content by following the links next to your profile picture, but you won't receive mass notifications.

Signatures

Signatures utilize full BBCode so feel free to use the usual
Code: (Image Code) [Select]
[img][/img] tags and whatever else you need. Color can also be added using
Code: (Color Code) [Select]
[color=red][/color]. Large images should be resized automatically and there's a max image number as well as a character limit.

Reputation

Yes, it's here. Reputation can be found under a users profile picture. Rep can only be issued after your post count reaches 15 and can be done so by clicking the the thumbs up/thumbs down buttons found at the top right of a users post. You can also now see what posts receive positive or negative by checking the number next to the respective icon.

Set Picture Width

You can also adjust your maximum image size by adding the width=### where ### is a number like 800 to the image command. This will set the maximum width of the image if you don't want it full size.
Ex:
Code: (Image Code) [Select]
[img width=800][/img]

They are bots from sites like google and baidu.
Do not make posts and do not effect us so no need to worry.
