I gathered the most frequently asked questions and put
them here.

Why do I need to register? Registration will give you access to additional
features not available to guest users such as definable avatar images,
private messaging, e-mailing to fellow users, usergroup subscription,
etc. It only takes a few minutes to register so it is recommended you do

Why do I get logged off automatically?If you do not check the Log me in automatically
box when you log in, the board will only keep you logged in for a
preset time. This prevents misuse of your account by anyone else. To
stay logged in, check the box during login. This is not recommended if
you access the board from a shared computer, e.g. library, internet
cafe, university cluster, etc.

How do I prevent my username from appearing in the online user listings?In your profile you will find an option Hide your online status; if you switch this on you'll only appear to board administrators or to yourself. You will be counted as a hidden user.

How do I change my settings?All your settings (if you are registered) are stored in the database. To alter them click the Profile link. This will allow you to change all your settings.

How do I show an image below my username?There
may be two images below a username when viewing posts. The first is an
image associated with your rank; generally these take the form of stars
or blocks indicating how many posts you have made or your status on the
forums. Below this may be a larger image known as an avatar; this is
generally unique or personal to each user. It is up to the board
administrator to enable avatars and they have a choice over the way in
which avatars can be made available. Ask the admin any questions you may have.

Posting Issues
How do I post a topic in a forum?Easy
-- click the relevant button on either the forum or topic screens. You
may need to register before you can post a message. The facilities
available to you are listed at the bottom of the forum and topic screens
(the You can post new topics, You can vote in polls, etc. list)

Can I post Images?Images
can indeed be shown in your posts. However, there is no facility at
present for uploading images directly to this board. Therefore you must
link to an image stored on a publicly accessible web server, e.g.
.some-unknown-place.net/my-picture You cannot link to
pictures stored on your own PC (unless it is a publicly accessible
server) nor to images stored behind authentication mechanisms such as
Hotmail or Yahoo mailboxes, password-protected sites, etc. To display
the image use either the BBCode [img] tag or appropriate HTML (if
can try to click on the icon that says, Host an Image, upload pic,
click Host It, then copy the code in the center box that says Image and
paste it in post.

User Levels and Groups

What are Usergroups?
are a way in which board administrators can group users. Each user can
belong to several groups (this differs from most other boards) and each
group can be assigned individual access rights. This makes it easy for
administrators to set up several users as moderators of a forum, or to
give them access to a private forum, etc.

How do I become a Usergroup Moderator?Usergroups
are initially created by the board administrator who also assigns a
board moderator. If you are interested in creating a usergroup then your
first point of contact should be the administrator, so try dropping
them a private message.

How do I join a Usergroup?
To join a usergroup click the usergroup link on the page header (dependent
on template design) and you can then view all usergroups. Not all
groups are open access -- some are closed and some may even have
hidden memberships. If the board is open then you can request to join it
by clicking the appropriate button. The user group moderator will need
to approve your request; they may ask why you want to join the group.
Please do not pester a group moderator if they turn your request down --
they will have their reasons.

Private Messaging
I cannot send private messages!There
are three reasons for this; you are not registered and/or not logged
on, the board administrator has disabled private messaging for the
entire board, or the board administrator has prevented you individually
from sending messages. If it is the latter case you should try asking
the administrator why.

I keep getting unwanted private messages!In
the future we will be adding an ignore list to the private messaging
system. For now, though, if you keep receiving unwanted private messages
from someone, inform the board administrator -- they have the power to
prevent a user from sending private messages at all.

I have received a spamming or abusive e-mail from someone on this board!
We are sorry to hear that. The e-mail form feature of this board includes
safeguards to try to track users who send such posts. You should e-mail
the board administrator with a full copy of the e-mail you received and
it is very important this include the headers (these list details of the
user that sent the e-mail). They can then take action.
