This is just a little thread for you to post questions pertaining for the forum itself, and I will try to answer them for you. Don't know how to change your avatar? Wondering how ranks work? I'll try to answer, explain, and clarify any issues you may have. Smile

I believe that is a restriction set up by Forumotion, mainly to prevent spamming/trolling. I'll look into changing this around if I can, but for now we'll just have to deal with it.

Well, MOCpages is designed to be a gallery with some very basic and ineffective messaging systems in the form of comments and groups, whereas this is a forum designed solely for socializing with others and with no gallery aspects at all.

It will be operating a lot differently, as we'll be organized into one community with multiple threads, rather than one website, multiple communities, and creations to comment on.

Two things (saving space like a boss) Cool :

1. Where is the chat box? Wonder EDIT: Wait, don't worry, I found it. Very Happy

2. Could you add a 'people online' so I know who I could chat to if I could theoretically find the box? EDIT: Call me a herp-a-derp but I found the box now too.

Make that three...

3. After I post it sends me to a page with two links (Titled 'Information'), but about a second later it sends me back to the thread. Question mark?

The "Information" page happens on every forumotion community I'm affiliated with, so I don't think I can change it.

Also, answering your question from the GC thread, the "Intelligence of Posts" of an individual user can be raised or lowered by the little "+" and "-" signs in the upper right-hand corner of every post. Clicking on the icons will, respectively, lower or raise the rating for that particular post, adding or detracting from that user's "Intelligence of Posts". I meant to mention this in my forum changes announcement, but I forgot. Razz

Yes, we are going to fight back. But not here, not now, not in the Colonies. Not even in this star system. Let the world go forth to every man, woman and child who survived this holocaust. Tell them to set sail at once in every assorted vehicle that will carry them.

In all, 220 ships representing every colony, color and creed in the star system. The human race might have one more chance.

Scroll to the top of the page and click on "Profile". From there, find the "Avatar" sub-menu. It's generally better to choose an avatar from your computer rather than from a url.

I've done this because I know that the other two admins over there won't know enough about being a forum admin. I'm eventually going to make them moderators and then admins after that, but for now, I'd like to observe everything on the forum for a bit.

One does not simply become a moderator without training. Laughing

Anyway, I actually have a question to ask. You know how there are adds on the forum now, I want to know how we got to one million vists so fast... And why IQ is measured with colour blindness tests... And if I'd better click on button before time runes out (no typo by me). Soon we'll be getting 'Dermatologists hate her' and 'one tip of a fat belly'. Pff
So did you put ads on or was it forummotion and if you did who's getting the profits? (Me no likey derp ads)

I have not set up any means of payment between myself and forumotion, nor do I intend to. I've minimized the space on the forum by which ads can populate. Where exactly are you seeing ads?

I would suggest downloading a reputable Adblock plug-in for your browser, as it generally helps clear out any unwanted ads.

Yeah I would get an adblocker but they aren't that annoying. They're in a box under the scrolling text.

Hmm. Well, when I minimized the ad space, that section disappeared for me. Shocked I'll have to look into it again.

I can still see the one at the top.

it shouldn't matter too much. some of them have seemed a bit... suspicious ("Free iPod! click here!"), but they haven't been bad otherwise.

Yeah, pretty much all ads should be viewed as suspicious. Just don't click on any of them. Razz
