    Forum Rules... FAQ and Enquiries

    Use this topic to ask for Forum rules to be claryfied, or to ask if you would be within the rules with any post you may wish to make... you may not get an answer on the spot, but it will let us know what need to be made clear...

    You've mentioned forum rules, but I actually cannot see any around - Erebus mentiones elsewhere about the sign-up dialogue, but it would be nice to have a reference copy.

    I know that we're probably talking common sense here. Perhaps replacing the default VBull FAQ with the SFFWorld rules?

    Btw - I missed the event, but I've had to administrate over such case on previous boards. Never fun.

    Yes, they're in a couple of posts...somewhere... but here they are again to save us all searching:

    Wasn't there a thread explaining the details about Avatars? Is my search query just misformated, or am I imagining things?

    If not, what are the proper paramaters of an Avatar? IE, Pixel Ratio, maximum allowable k, etc... I am going on the assumption that a girl with big boobs jumping up and down and bouncing down and up is not acceptable viewing material

    THANKS!

    Oh and I'll second the motion to overhaul the FAQ.

    I just noticed that a certain "Tartaros" has been banned. Is he yet another incarnation of Hemingway?

    I believe Dag has turned off the sigs. As often the sigs, with pictures are larger than the posts and take up too much space on the server.

    That's a shame. I may not know much but i know that this forum software lets you have text signatures only as you can turn off images. A friend did it on his site.

    You see, there are still some out there on dial-up....

    The other issue is whether people visit the site to read detailed, incisive, well written comments about Fantasy and SF, or do they come to look at the pretty pictures and signatures, which could increase the number of pages you have to go through and make some very long threads even longer....

    Plus we don't allow url advertising, so can you imagine having to go through 6500+ profiles just to make sure the signatures are ok? No thanks

    I've got a question and actually it's my fault, I was wondering how to find out my password because I keep myself signed in on this computer so I don't have to sign in but now i'm changing my computer and have forgotten my password. but I was also wondering whether it will just keep me signed in since i'm keeping the same AOL account? Can anyone help?

    Which is why Hobbit's big, blue mush, spends most of the time locked in the tea room.
    They try to keep him sedated with hobnobs to stop him from posting too often.
