Forum Guide.
This guide will teach all the basics here, how everything works and everything else you should know. You may or may not have any experience with forums, even if you do, you might not be familiar with vBulletin type forums. Either way, this guide should be helpful.Table of ContentsPost #1: Rules, Signing Up, Logging InPost #2: How to Start PostingPost #3: Positions/RanksPost #4: Private Messages, User CP, Avatar, Profile Picture, SignaturePost #5: vB CodesPost #1: Rules, Signing UpRules:1. Use Sentences (Capitalizations & Periods).2. No Inappropriate Behavior/Junk Posts (spam).3. Respect other members and their opinions.Note: Inappropriate behavior and junk posts may lead to ban. I have little patience for this kind of behavior.Other Things You Shouldn't Do: don't double post (except for fan fic boards, otherwise, use edit button please), don't revive old threads (don't reply to threads that haven't been replied to in the last 30 days), illegal material are not allowed (for example, ROMs), don't ask to be moderator.Old Threads Rule: You can only reply to threads that have had a recent reply in the past 30 days (1 month). So for example, if a thread was created on January 1, 2006, and the last reply on the thread was made on January 25, 2006... then if a person replies again on February 20, 2006, that is NOT considered reviving an old thread, because you still have 30 days to respond to the last post of a thread.OR, in less active forums, the first two pages of the board can be replied to. This is to avoid duplicate topics when the topic the person wants to talk about is already on the first two pages. In this situation, the 30 day rule does not apply if the thread can be found in the first two pages of the board. If the thread is beyond the first two pages, you apply the 30 day rule above.Exceptions to reviving old threads are the Fan Fiction and Art boards (since authors and artists works are continual, and might take a long time off before adding additional content to their work, and the authors and artists can revive their own thread to add additional content). And the Game Projects board, since game creators might take a lot of time before adding/updating new stuff for their game. So these boards do not have a old thread revival rule, but can only be revived by the person that created it for the reasons stated.Signing Up:To sign up, just click on the Register link. Just enter the username you want and your email (make sure you carefully type your email, in case you lose your password, that's where the password will be sent). Re: Forum Guide --------------------------------------------------------------------------------Post #2: How to Start Posting.The Terms: Forum, Board, Thread, PostForum: This entire site, is the forum.Board: In a forum, there are boards with broad topics.Thread: Threads are found inside boards. Anyone can make a thread, which starts a discussion about a particular topic.Posts: Posts are the messages you see inside the threads.Posting/ReplyingClick on a thread, and you'll see the messages in that thread. To reply, just click on the "Post Reply" button. You can also quote what a person said in his/her message, by going to the person's post, you'll see a "Reply" button on the bottom right. By clicking that, a quote of that message will be autmatically made. This is useful, because people will know what you're talking about (or which post you were talking about).Starting a ThreadJust go to a board, and click on "New Thread." Make sure the topic you want to talk about isn't created already before making a new thread.Editing Your Own PostIf for whatever reason you need to edit your post, your forgot something or correcting an error, you can edit your post by clicking "Edit" on the bottom right corner of your post. Please avoid posting two times in row (double posting), you can just edit the post before if you forgot something.The more you post, the higher the rank you are. The ranks doesn't do anything, it's only an indication of how much a member has posted. The ranks:New Trainer: Less than 50 posts.Amateur Trainer: More than 50 posts.Experienced Trainer: More than 100 posts.Master Trainer: More than 250 posts.Elite Trainer: More than 500 posts.After Achieving the Elite Trainer, You Will Get a Level Up for Each 1000 PostsElite Trainer (Level 1) - 1000 postsElite Trainer (Level 2) - 2000 postsElite Trainer (Level 3) - 3000 postsElite Trainer (Level 4) - 4000 postsElite Trainer (Level 5) - 5000 postsElite Trainer (Level 6) - 6000 postsElite Trainer (Level 7) - 7000 postsElite Trainer (Level Cool - 8000 postsElite Trainer (Level 9) - 9000 postsElite Trainer (Level 10) - 10,000 postsPositionsAdministrator: There's just one, that would be me of course, the owner, Pokemon Elite 2000Moderators: These are people that are given power by me to manage certain boards. They have the power to sticky threads, lock threads, move threads, etc.Super Moderators: Has the same power as moderators, but able to manage all the boards and the power to ban members for inappropiate behavior.*Please do not ask to be a moderator/super moderator, I will make them when I need them, and I will consider all for the job.: Private Messages, User CP, Avatar, Profile Picture, SignaturePrivate MessagesThis is an important features, espicially if you or someone else wants to contact you directly. If you look on the top right of the forum, it says "Welcome, (your name here)." Right beneath that, you will see a URL to Private Messages, also shows the number of message you got that are unread. Go there to read and respond to private messages. You can send private messages to other members by going to the person's profile (by clicking their name), and then click on the "Send a private message" URL under Contact Info in the profile.User CPThe User CP (Control Panel), contains all the settings you can set. This includes, your signature and avatar settings, and edit forum options, such as date and time options.AvatarThe avatar is the image that will appear next to your name in your posts. By going to the Edit Avatar in your User CP, you can enter a URL of the image, or if you have the image on your computer, you can upload the image you want to use. Maximum size for avatars: 100 by 100 pixels and 40KB.SignatureThe signature is the area below all your posts. You can enter text and images here.Signature Rules - Big Signatures=BadSignature TextAlong with your image, you may place text in your signature, please try to keep your text minimum so that you don't increase the size of your signature even further. If you want more space for text, make your image in your signature smaller or don't use one at all.There's also a 300 character limit, if you can't fit your entire signature within that limit, you must take some stuff out to make it fit.You can click on this button: when you want to post an image. You can do it two ways, by entering the URL of the image first, then highlighting the URL and then click on the image button. Or, you can click on the image button first, then type in the URL, then click it again to end the code. You can also type the image code yourself, it should look like this:Code:Inserting URLs (Hyperlinking)If you type in a URL, it will automatically turn into a clickable link. If you want certain text to be a URL, then you click on the URL button: . That will ask you for the text of your URL, and the URL itself (if you don't enter text, it will just show the URL). And then the code will automatically be entered into your post.There are many vB codes, and you see all of them and how to use them here: http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/foru....php?do=bbcode__________________www.pokemonelite2000.comAvatar and Signature FAQContents:User Control PanelUser CP MenuAvatarSignature-ToolboxTags-Images Tag-Linking Images TagImage HostsUser Control PanelFirst thing's first. To edit either your Signature or Avatar you must first go to the User CP (Control Panel). The User CP link is highlighted with a red box in the shown image.By clicking the link you will be taken directly to your own User CP. There, you can edit many things about your account besides signatures and avatars (Such as your custom profile, or the like), however this is an Avatar and Signature FAQ, so...User CP MenuWhen you open up your User CP, there will be a menu on the left side. This menu has a link to edit your Signature, and a link to edit your Avatar.Edit avatar link in red, edit signature link in green. Click the respective link to edit whichever you wish.AvatarDescriptions:Red - Current Avatar (If any); if you already have an Avatar and wish to remove it then click the option "Do not use an avatar" (Beside current avatar image) and click Save Changes.Green - New avatar URL. Once you've uploaded your avatar (See Image Host links at end of FAQ) you will obtain a URL for it (e.g. "http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/pkrs001.gif" is the URL for a Treecko RS sprite). Enter the URL into the Green area and click Save Changes to use the designated picture as an Avatar (Images cannot be larger than 100x100 pixels).Blue - By clicking the "Browse" button next to the Blue area, you can search for an image on your computer (Much like when searching for a .txt file when using a Word Processor). When you find the image you want, select it and click open. Finally, click Save Changes, and the image will be uploaded from your computer, so you won't need to worry about hosting (Images cannot be larger than 100x100 pixels).SignatureBelow is an example of my own Signature:Red - Signature area. This is where the code for your signature goes.Green - Toolbox. The toolbox has different features that allow quick editing.Blue - Smiley box. Click a smiley to add it into the signature, or click the "More" link to see more smilies you can use.Toolbox:When you click a button on the Toolbox, the tags for the specific button appear in the signature editing area. For example, when you click the Bold button ("B"), the bold tags will appear in the signature (Without the "*").Quote:[B*][/B*] The above are tags while using the "Bold" tool, however it's almost similar with every tool. Enter text inbetween the two tags, and the text between them will appear within your signature as Bold (Or you can highlight text already in your signature, and press a tool, putting the highlighted text between the tags, Bolding them).Tags:Tags are special pieces of code. Tags begin, and close, affecting anything in between them, for example (Remove the "*"s when using this code yourself):Code:[CENTER*]My Signature[/CENTER*]Because the text "My Signature" is between two CENTER tags, putting that code in my signature would cause the text to be centered.Images Tag:Code:A URL is unique to an image, and shows where on the internet can be found (e.g. PokemonElite2000's URL is "www.pokemonelite2000.com"). You can view an images URL by right-clicking and going to "Properties". Once you have the URL, replace the text "URL" in the code with the actual images URL.Note: You can view your signature before saving it by clicking "Preview Signature".Linking Images Tag:Note: Remember to remove "*"s from the URL tag.Code:[*URL=Links URL][/url]Using this code will add the Image from the IMG tags into your post/signature, but will also change it into a link, so that clicking the image will take you to wherever the "Links URL" is set as (e.g. "http://pe2k.com").Image Hosts:Image Hosts allow you to upload images for use in Avatars or Signatures. Some hosts are:http://www.imageshack.ushttps://www.photobucket.com(More hosts soon)Thus concludes this FAQ. I hope some people read this.
