since there's always questions about the forum and new things bein found out constantly, i'm makin an faq to help the noobs here

q: how do you post (this's a real question, many ppl dun know how to post)
a: go below the last post on any page of a thread and there'll be an 'add reply' button. click on it, type your post, and click 'submit post'

q: how do you edit posts
a: in the top right corner of your posts, there's an 'edit' button next to the 'quote' button

q: how do you use color/font/bold/italics/underline/size
a: you've gotta highlight the word/s you're gonna enlarge, color, etc.

q: what's a custom title and how can i get it?
a: a custom title is somethin a poster with over 500 posts can put instead of the standard level name (newbie/member/advanced member/ etc.)

q: are 1 and 14 the smallest and largest sizes
a: no, you can manually change the size once you've highlighted and selected a size for a word/group of words. largest is somethin like 33 (jus put whatever # above that you want, it'll automatically go to the largest allowable size) smallest is -7

more to come later (when i think of them add some yourself if you think of one i didn't include)

I have to admit... SPS is right. If it is ignored it will fester and grow, better to get it now than let that happen...

It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion,
It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed,
The hands acquire shaking, the shaking becomes a warning,
It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.


Jack of all trades, master of none,
though offtimes better than master of one.

Carpe Noctem, pro cras nos necemus
Carpe Diem, pro hodie nos mutiamo
