    Can I attach a file to my post?

    If you have a browser that is Mozilla 4+ compatible then the answer is yes you can. When you preview your post you will have the opportunity to attach a file to your post.

    I don't like the colors here, what can I do about it?

    You can Change your Style sheet.

    Ok, what the hell does that mean? Well, there are several different Styles/Skins/Themes.. whatever you want to call them, available to you here.
    Just go into your Control Panel and select the link to Edit Display preferences, number of shown threads, languages, colors...

    Once you're in there, the second option down, named "Which style sheet (skin) do you want to use for your display?" will have a drop-down selection box that will have 8 different styles to choose from, each of which will completely change the color scheme of the site.

    Everthing you wanted to know about the Clan Features, but were afraid to ask.

    Who can Register a Clan ?
    Anyone can, as long as they are a Registered member of MythForums.com.

    How do I register a Clan ?

    Click the link to Enter the Forums then on the Forum's top menu click the link called Clan Stuff.. All Clan Functions are accessible from this link.
    Then just select the link to Register a New Clan.
    and fill out the form.


    Someone in my Clan already Registered our Clan... how do I join it ?

    When that person Registered the Clan, they had to specify a "Clan Password". You will need them to give you this password and the EXACT spelling of the Clan's Name. Then use the Join an existing Clan link. You MUST Enter the Clan Name and password EXACTLY as they were originally entered and both are case-sensitive.


    Can I Leave a Clan ?

    Yes you can. Just use the Leave your Current Clan link.
    *** Caution: This is a one click deal, so only go here if you are sure you want to do this ***
    Also, if you are the sole remaining member registered in that clan, when you leave it, your Private Forum and all posts that were made to it are cleared out.


    What is the 'Clan Manager' ?

    It's just the term I use to refer to the person that has the administrative abilities for your Clan. This is typically the person that registered the Clan.
    They are the only ones that are able to update your clan's info (Logo URL, Home Page URL, change the Clan Password).
    They are not allowed to Leave the Clan until they have passed the Clan Manager duties to another Current Member, which they can do by following the Manage your Clan's Info link.

    Can I see a list of all the Clan's that are here, and can I also see who the members are?

    Absolutely ! In the Main Menu on the left is a link called Clan List. Just click it to see ALL the clans registered here.

    To see who is a member of those clans, just click the clan name and you will be taken to that Clan's Info page.

     

    Can I use HTML in my posts?

    There are 2 ways that this can be configured on a per board basis. If HTML is On then you will see HTML is On and you can use normal HTML in your posts. If Markup is on you will see Markup is On. The following tags are available for your use if Markup is enabled:

    Do I have to accept cookies?

    Yes. Cookies are used to track your Username/Password and which posts you have read for your current session. Without accepting cookies some functions won't work properly.

     

    How do I put a poll in my post?

    Putting a pull in your post is simple, but remember: Posts with polls in them cannot be edited but they may be deleted.
    To add a poll to your post, use this format:

    [pollstart]
    [polltitle=Name of your poll]
    [polloption=First Choice]
    [polloption=Second Choice]
    [polloption=As many choices as you would like]
    [pollstop]

     

    I want to see more (or less) posts per page.

    You can change the number of posts to be displayed per page by editing your profile. You can set this from anything between 1 and 99 posts per page. When you first sign up this gets set to 15 posts per page.

     

    What's with all the buttons?

    The buttons are used for navigation and displaying posts. Depending on the screen you are on they may serve different purposes.

    When displaying a list of all threads:
    - The and buttons will take you to the previous or next page of posts.
    - The button will take you to the index of all available forums.
    - The button will let you make a new post on that board.
    - The and buttons will allow you to toggle between expanded and collapsed threads. Expanded threads will show the subject of all posts and replies in a threaded format. Collapsed threads will show the subject of the main post along with the number of replies to that post.

    When viewing individual threads:
    - The and buttons will take you to the previous or next thread.
    - The button will take you back to the listing of all posts on that page.
    - The button allows you to view the entire thread on one page if there are any replies to the original message.
    - The button allows you to view the current post with all other posts on that thread displayed below in a threaded format.
    - The button allows you to reply to a post.
    - The button allows you to edit a post.

     

    Why are Subject, Poster and Posted On clickable?

    You can click on any of these to change the order in which the posts are sorted and displayed. If you click on Subject once, it will display posts by Subject in reverse alphabetical order. If you click on it again it will display posts by Subject in alphabetical order. Poster and Posted on works similarly.

     

    Why do you ask for a two email addresses?

    The real email address is used for email notifications and forum subscriptions and to email your password. The other is what other users see when they view your profile. We realize that some people don't want everyone to know their normal email address, but we need to know it in case you want to subscribe to a forum or if you want to have replies emailed to you. For this reason you can give us your real email address that only we will see and you can provide a different one for the general public. Some people like to put in something like scream\@no.spam.wwwthreads.com. This way people can still figure out what your real email address is, but spamming agents can't just parse through the page and spam you.

     

    Why should I register a Username?

    By registering a Username, you will be able to edit your profile and preferences. You will get the most out of your time here if you change your profile to suit your individual tastes. There are alot of options in your profile to make your experience here more enjoyable, so please take a few moments to try the various settings. Also only people with registered Usernames can take advantage of the "New Posts" feature upon each visit.
