I will try and keep this updated with questions and answers in one thread so there will not be mulitple threads.


1. How do you get a signature?
User CP > Edit Signature
The ability of using the signature may change, DO NOT ABUSE it and it may not

a) I can not seem to get a signature, why is that?
You need 200 posts in order to get a signature.

2. How do I change my password and/or email address so I can remember?
User CP > Edit Email & Password

3. How do you add a title to say " I am the man"?
User CP > Edit Profile > Custom User Title

a) I followed the steps and still can not get a signature, I do not see it?
You need 200 posts to change your title.

4. Why are the posts in reverse order? (newest listed first)
User CP > Edit Options > Thread Display Options Paragraph > Thread Display Mode Group > Change to Linear - Older First

5. My time is saying X and it is really X, what's up with that?
User CP > Edit Options > Date and Time Options > Time Zone

6. How do you change the color skins?
User CP > Edit Options > Misc. Options > Forum Skin
Bottom Left on page > Drop down box

7. How do I add an avatar?
User CP > Edit Avatar > play around until you get it...haha

8. Why can I not post in the Classified Section? NEW RULE AND IN EFFECT.
Need a MINIMUM of 100 posts. NO EXCEPTIONS

9. I meet the post requirements to post in the Classified Section, but still
can't?
Must have PICTURES and PRICES. NO EXCEPTIONS

10. Why do some members have different colors?
Navy = Regular Member 100+ Posts
Cyan= Newbie Member < 100 Posts
Lime Green= Donating Member
Gold = New Moderators
Blue= Super Moderators
Red = Administrators
Pink/Magenta = Ride of the Month Winner

11. How do I become a paying member?
User CP > Paid Subscriptions > Donating member

12. Why did my post count go down?
Posting useless information and/or postwhoring = deleted posts
Thread Starter deleted a thread, thus losing your posts

13. I did not mean to make a stupid comment, where is the Delete Function?
You need 200 posts. So if your momma would smack you for making a rude/immature/bashing/etc. comment, then DO NOT say it!

14. Where can I upload a picture? Here are some sites that I can think of.
www.imageshack.us
www.photobucket.com

15. How do I post a picture?
If you have a link and it is not visible, simply put (insert URL here) and that should take care of it.

16. I am at work and some Avatars are NWS, how do I turn them off?
USER CP > Edit Options > "Thread Display Options" > "Visible Post Elements" > Disable Show Avatars

17. I am posting in a lot of sections but why is my post count not increasing?
The reason that your post count may not be increasing is because in some sections, the post count does not apply. The WTB, Classified, Off Topic, OT Post Whore, and other whoring sections do not increase the count. The more Technical sections will increase your post count, Engine, Suspension, Boost, etc. However, do not post smilies are one word comments, if you do not have any kind of input/help/advice/etc. that adds to the topic then they will be deleted.

i will bring this up and see if they want vendors color coded. that would be a good idea, imo.

Got a question about avatars. I used to have an animated one but I get this message: You may not upload animated images.

I know the message is pretty straight forward, but I did run across another member with an animated one. Am I just not doing it right?

Tnhatch03
06-02-2008, 10:55 AM
Are you putting it in right? This is what I see when I go to Edit Avatar.


Custom Avatar
If you have a custom avatar and want to keep it as it is, leave the fields below as they are.

Use Custom Avatar

You may upload a new custom image using the controls below.

Option 1 - Enter the URL to the Image on Another Website

Option 2 - Upload Image From Your Computer

Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 225 by 225 pixels or 39.1 KB (whichever is smaller).

Dark Blue= Super Moderators


Technically the Regular Members' color is "Navy" which is actually a darker blue than the plain jane blue that the Super Moderators have...

Okay, some of my original questions were answered, but I am still experiencing problems. Why is it that even after I post, my post count does not go up? It's very frustrating to go from having over 1000 posts as a 2004 member, to 13, and now my count will not even go up! Oy!

You don't like 100? It's 200 now. Donate or contribute to the site in a positive nonpostwhore manner. You'll be at 200 in no time. :mbiggrin:

^ yeah that. either get 200 posts or be a donating member in order to bypass the post requirement...

please do not whine about it either. before the new ephatch, it was 200 posts no matter what and we are finally comfortable with bringing it back to 200.

do not postwhore because you will probably have problems getting to 10 posts if you do.

so if you bought stickers or a license place frame... does that mean you are a donator?

RedSiBaron
05-20-2011, 08:55 PM
so if you bought stickers or a license place frame... does that mean you are a donator?

no, to become a site sponsor you must pay a $20 membership fee, you would get a plate frame with that as well as other perks on the site, like being able to sell with any post count, bigger avatars (or is it sigs? or is it .gifs?, i dont remember) and a larger PM box, and access to teh greenie site sponsor section...

PM any mod with link of the thread you want changed and what you want it changed to.


who do we pay the 20membership fee to if we did want to become a sponsor?

Don't forget the vendors do give out additional benefits, the last time i checked.

Go to:
Settings
Paid Subscriptions

I believe it will then prompt you to the paypal address.
