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)

(sry, zoey, that explains noobs only)

q: what's a minion/anit-minion
a: a minion is someone with less posts than you who you seize as your minion. it's almost like adoptin a noob cause you do kinda hafta tell them to post more and there's an unimplied helpin thing (you answer questions, back them up when their bein dissed) but you also get to order them to do stuff (not that they actually have to). an anti-minion is like an anti-noob (sorta). you seize someone with more posts than you, tell them to post less, and sorta hafta back each other up in the forum

no its not
antinoob was my idea
when you are a newbie, someone adopts you and shows youaround, encourages you to post more, and stuff.
an antinoob is someone who you adopt who has more posts than you, and you tell them they post too much.

that would be a foob (well, sorta, when your noob graduates you can ask him to become your foob but s/he can only be YOUR foob and no one else's)
neways, i've thought of another one which many ppl might not know

q: are those the ONLY colors to use?
a: NO! there are many others. jus type in the color you want after highlightin the word/phrase and pickin a color. it's jus like makin new sizes. i dun know all the colors that you can use, experiment for yourselves and find out. if it's a non-forum-existin color, it'll show up in your post without changin the color and you can edit your post to change it to a different color

All these ''00b''s are making me dizzy. (j/k)
Anti-n00b's sound weird, but I understand.

i have that as one of the questions. and yes, prez, run.... run as far as you can for gerbil is helpin ppl

q: HELP! MY THREAD DIED! what happened? can i save it? (this quesiton really isn't for noobs and probably won't be a problem to anyone but me for a really long time)
a: your thread wasn't posted on for 30 days and yes, it can be saved, there's a few menu bar thingys at the bottom of the 4 forums, one of them says 'viewing from' and then lotsa choices. the auto choice is 'the last 30 days' but if you select 'the beginnin' then your thread will be SAVED! (c'mon ppl make your own questions i know i've missed somethin)

q: what happens if you post less than your minion/ post more than your anti-minion?
a: if your minion posts more than you, he is freed but can be seized again at a later time (leo got freed but i seized him again later), if you post more than your anti-minion, you are free and able to seize someone else as your anti-minion
