SirSteve's Guide FAQ

Here you can find answers to questions about how the board works. Use the links or search box below to find your way around.

Why can I not post or reply?

Assuming you registered, then you have not activated your account. As it stated when registering (which no one really reads), you were sent an activation e-mail to the account you registered with. You must click the URL (web address) it provided in order to verify who you really are. As soon as you do this, you will have access to post and reply to threads. If for some reason you did not receive the activation e-mail, you can request it.

What is post-padding?

Post-padding is when someone makes short, pointless posts simply to raise their post count. It is disruptive and wastes other forumites' time.

What if I see a post that has a problem of some kind (i.e., spam, advertising, post-padding, harassment, fighting, etc.)?

Every post has a "Report Post" link on it, clicking that link will take you to a form that you fill out to explain the nature of the problem. Once you've completed this simple form, a copy of the report along with a URL of that specific post will be sent automatically to every corresponding moderator as well as the administrator.

Can I have more than one username?

No, one username per person is all that's allowed on our system.

I changed e-mail accounts; how can I update my forums account to reflect the change?

Go to the User CP section then Edit Profile and make your update.

What does the name under my user name mean?

That is your rank. The more you post, the higher your rank. However, do not post pad (posting just to raise your post count) or you may be banned.

What happened to my post counts? A lot of them are missing!

Whenever a post or thread is deleted or moved into a forum that is set not to accumulate post counts, your number of post counts are set to the appropriate count.
