How can I add hyperlinks to my messages? Go Up

You can easily add a hyperlink to your message.


All that you need to do is type the URL (http://snakenetmetalradio.com/heavymetallounge/4rum/), and it will automatically be converted to a URL (http://snakenetmetalradio.com/heavymetallounge/4rum/)!


The trick here is to make sure you prefix your URL with the http://, https:// or file://


You can also add a mailto link to your message by typing in your e-mail address.

This Example:
your.email@yourserver.com
Outputs this:



Another way to add hyperlinks is to use the [url]linkto[/url] tags

This Example:
[url]http://snakenetmetalradio.com/heavymetallounge/4rum/[/url] takes you home!
Outputs This:
http://snakenetmetalradio.com/heavymetallounge/4rum/ takes you home!


If you use this tag: [url="linkto"]description[/url] you can add a description to the link.

This Example:
Take me to [url="http://snakenetmetalradio.com/heavymetallounge/4rum/"]Battleboard[/url]
Outputs This:
Take me to Battleboard
This Example:
If you have a question [url="your.email@yourserver.com"]E-Mail Me[/url]
Outputs This:
If you have a question

You can make clickable images by combining the [url="linkto"]description[/url] and [img]image_url[/img] tags
This Example:
[url="http://snakenetmetalradio.com/heavymetallounge/4rum/"]
[img]

What are the moderators? Go Up
Moderators control individual forums. They may edit, delete, or prune any posts in their forums.

Flaming of moderators for doing their job is not permitted under any circumstances. If you have a problem with how a moderator has done their job, please contact with the details of your complaint.
Are Cookies Used? Go Up
These Forums use cookies to store the following information: the last time you logged in, your Username and your Encrypted Password. These cookies are stored on your hard drive. Cookies are not used to track your movement or perform any function other than to enhance your use of these forums. If you have not enabled cookies in your browser, many of these time-saving features will not work properly. Also, you need to have cookies enabled if you want to enter a private forum or post a topic/reply.

You may delete all cookies set by these forums in selecting the "logout" button at the top of any page.
What are active topics? Go Up
Active Topics are tracked by cookies. When you click on the "active topics" link, a page is generated listing all topics that have been posted since your last visit to these forums (or approximately 20 minutes).
Can I edit my posts? Go Up

You may edit or delete your own posts at any time. Just go to the topic where the post to be edited or deleted is located and you will see a edit or delete icon (EditDelete) on the line that begins "posted on..." Click on this icon to edit or delete the post. No one else can edit your post, except for the forum Moderator or the forum Administrator. A note is generated at the bottom of each edited post displaying when and by whom the post was edited.

Can I Attach Files to my Posts? Go Up
For security reasons, you may not attach files to any posts. However, you may cut and paste text into your post.
Can I search posts? Go Up
You may search for specific posts based on a word or words found in the posts, user name, date, and particular forum(s). Simply click on the "search" link at the top of most pages.
Can I use a signature/avatar on the Battleboard? Go Up
No. We don't like signatures and avatars, they waste bandwidth, screen space and make the place just look untidy. So sorry, no signatures or avatars.
Is there any censorship? Go Up
The Forum does censor certain words that may be posted; however, this censoring is not an exact science, and is being done based on the words that are being screened, so certain words may be censored out of context. By default, words that are censored are replaced with asterisks.

We also have a rule banning posting of pornography or nudity of any kind. You will get banned for violating this rule. This rule extends to graphic content such as rotten.com or other sites.
What does it mean when a forum has Moderation enabled? Go Up

Moderation: This feature allows the Administrator or the Moderator to "Approve", "Hold" or "Delete" a users post before it is shown to the public.
Approve: Only the administrators or the moderators will be able to approve a post made to a moderated forum. When the post is approved, it will be made viewable to the public.
Hold: When a user posts a message to a moderated forum, the message is automatically put on hold until a moderator or an administrator approves of the post. No one will be able to view the post while it is put on hold.
NOTE: Authors of the post will be able to edit their post during this mode.
Delete: If the administrator or moderator chooses this option, the post will be deleted and an e-mail will be sent to the poster of the message, informing them that their post was not approved. The administrator/moderator will be able to give their reason for not approving the post in the e-mail.

How can I get a forum like this on my site? Go Up
These forums are run by a highly modified version of Snitz Forums. If you want to run a forum on your website, we recommend using Snitz.
How does the Ignore feature work? Go Up

Ignoring a user works as follows:

1) Find a member who annoys you and you could really do without reading all their posts. Find one of their posts. Note the little:

icon next to their post.

2) Click it.
3) User is now ignored.

All their reply posts will instead display

[view post] [unignore user]

"View post" allows you to view posts that are hidden, just in case you want to give them the benefit of the doubt.
"Unignore user" will unignore the user. Or you can click the:

on any ignored user.

Posts as the start of a topic are not ignored. Because you need to know what the topic is about. If you want to ignore them you won't have clicked into the topic, if you want to read the topic then you need to see the first post.

Additional note: you can't ignore mods/super mods/admins.

What is this cred thingy? Go Up

The idea behind the cred system is to encourage the posting of good posts, and to allow newbies who are posting good stuff to easily match established members. In order to not just build up cred by simply being a member for a long time (and effectively making this a simple post counter), cred "decays" over time, i.e. only cred ratings of the last three months are counted. Plus, posts older than that cannot be rated.

So how do I use it? Easy: every post starts with a neutral cred rating (yellow). If you think it was a good post give it positive cred (green), if you think it was a shitty post give it negative cred (red). This will increase or decrease this post's total cred by one, as well as the total cred of the poster of this message.

Don't mistake the cred system as just a way to show agreement or disagreement. This is not the point. You can agree with a post but still give it negative cred because the author failed to really back up his point of view. On the other hand you can disagree with a post but still give it positive cred because the author put some effort into making his point clear.
