Ehh...so I've decided to put up a list of tips for this forum...feel free to post your own tips. ^^

#1: WYGIWYS Editor
For those who aren't too familiar with BBCode (forum code) you can unhighlight the box in the BBCode post bar. Then "what you get is what you see" so if you choose bold, instead of doing the normal:
Code:
[b]text[/b]
It looks like text in your post editor. ^^


#2: Resize Post Editor
It's possible to drag the bottom right corner of your editor! There are certain maximum, minimum heights and lengths but this is pretty helpful to know as sometimes if you "Preview" your post, the editor turns really small. >_< This helps though!


#3: You can add friends/foes
You go edit profile >  Friends and foes...so here, for those who are lazy. Not necessarily helpful, but it shows up on your profile and you get points~~

#4: Hate or want more emails? Check your notifications!
I don't know what the defaults are, but if you go edit profile > Notifications...so here, for those who are lazy. Currently I've got everything ticked except "incoming of a profile message" because it's disabled and "a new post in a watched topic" (I have way to many watched topics haha). So, that might help if you CKM Forum emails are spamming your inbox.

#5: Forum Points System
Points are gained by posting, making threads will usually give you 300 points while replying to threads will give you 100 points, so they're actually pretty easy to get. Gaining profile "friends" can also give you points and having an aged account allows you to accumulate points over time (approximately 169 points per day which is also quite a lot). What are they for? No idea, but if in the future, there's a virtual shop system for the food fight forum or something, it may be used.

#6: Forum Ranks
Forum ranks (and post counts) are as follows:
New Member ~ 0-1
Fan ~ 2-4 posts
Regular ~ 5-29
Elite Regular ~ 30-99
Bronze ~ 100-199
Silver ~ 200-499
Gold ~ 500-999
Lost Cause ~ 1000+ (even I haven't got here haha)

There are currently no prizes associated with forum ranks, so don't bother asking.

#7: Changing Username
....is disabled, but if you'd like to change your username, sending me an email at chinatownkm@gmail.com will do well. ^^

#8: Three Types of Emoticons
Everyone only uses the onion heads  lol! but if you go to the left side, where your emoticons are and click on the dropdown list of emoticons, there are three types...
onion heads (obviously)  Laughing 
monkeys  Basketball
crazy bunnies   

Yup, I think that's it for now, if I think of anything else, I'll post in this thread too~

EDIT:

#9: Link to Last Post
All forums have this, but not many people notice haha. It's always beside the username of the member who posted the latest post and it may sometimes look like this if you haven't read it before and you're logged in. ^^

#10: Hidden tag
Code:
[hide]Text here[/hide]

This tag hides text, so only you can see it.

When someone replies to the topic or has a reply in the topic, they are also able to see it.

This tag would probably be quite useful for those scanlators who want people to post on their forums more. Like, they can hide the links and stuff...but I'm not going to do that haha.
