"How do I post an image? Can I upload an image from my computer?"
"I can't post in the Fantasy Match thread? Why is this?"SpaceG92 wrote:No. You cannot upload images from your computer to the Tohokingdom forums. You need 50 posts on the forum first before you are able to post an image. This is to cut down on spamming.
To upload an image, you need to upload them to an image hosting website like Photobucke or Postimg or even along the lines of DeviantArt or Facebook. After uploading the image, you need to get the "Image Url". Most image hosting websites already have this ready next to the image however, if it does not. You just need to "Right Click" the image and select "Copy Image Url". Then go back to your Tohokingdom post, and simply right click and then select "Paste". You should get a url link. All you need to do now is to use the [img] or [pic] tags around the url, and then submit! You should have an image.
"Why is this User's name Red or Green?"SpaceG92 wrote:You need to apply via the member group in order to post in there. To do so, just follow the below;
->Go to the User Control Panel
-From there, you can see several tabs. Those being "Overview, Profile, Preferences, PMs, Usergroups, and Friends and Foes"
->Click on "Usergroups"
-You are now in the "User Groups" page. Find and select the one called "Fantasy Matches" and then use the Select Button and go from there.
-Mind you, you need to wait for a moderator/admin approval first.
"Why do some Users have a glowing different colored names and are flashy?"SpaceG92 wrote:A Red username means that specific member is an Administrator. Green means that user is a Moderator.
"Why do I see certain words as "Skreeonk?"SpaceG92 wrote:This is a novelty feature implemented by a former Administrator. This is something called the "Radioactive Button". Clicking a randomly colored "Radioactive Trefoil Symbol". Clicking this will refresh the page and depending on the color of the Trefoil, you username will be that specific color for a variant time until someone else finds and clicks that color. You can click multiple colors, but you will only keep the most recent clicked color. Note, you need to have Java script enabled to see and to properly click this. You can turn this feature off in the "Board Preferences" and the tab "Edit Display Options" tab in your "User Control Panel" and un-check "Display Flash Animations and Novelty Features."
"Can I ignore people?"SpaceG92 wrote:This is the boards default censorship. It will automatically censor swears and profanities by defualt. You can disable this in "Board Preferences" and the tab "Edit Display Options" then un-check "Enable word Censoring".
Are there image signature guidelines?SpaceG92 wrote:Yes, in a way you can. You need to go to your "Board Preferences" and the tab "Friends & Foes", then select the "Foes". Either enter in the User's names, or click the ""Find a Member" button and select the member. Then select "Submit". From now on, this member's posts will be hidden from you and will display a "This post is hidden" message if you come across a post from this member. Mind you, if someone quotes a message from him, it will still show up. You can undo this at anytime by removing him from the list.
"Why do some users have different colored names? Like red, green and blue?"
SpaceG92 wrote:They are part of special forum user groups, each of which corresponds with a color. Red for Forum Administrators. Green for Forum Moderators. Blue for Site staff. These 3 make up The team. Keep in mind, that is if the users of the site staff have a forum account.
You can also view different user rank colors in the "Legend" area on the bottom of forum index (main page). From there you can select each usergroup and view the users in each group.
