Login and Registration Issues
Why do I get logged off automatically?
-If you do not check the Remember me 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.
How do I prevent my username from appearing in the online user listings?
-In your Account Settings you will find an option Invisible; if you switch this on you'll only appear to board administrator or to yourself. You will be counted as a hidden user.
I've lost my password!
-Don't panic! While your password cannot be retrieved it can be reset. To do this go to the login page and click Forgot your password?. Follow the instructions and you should be back online in no time.
How do I post a topic in a forum?
-Easy -- choose appropriate board for your post than click Create Thread button. You may need to register before you can post a message.
How do I edit or delete a post?
-Unless you are the board admin or forum moderator you can only edit or delete your own posts. You can edit a post (only for a limited time after it was made) by clicking the edit button for the relevant post.
How do I add a signature to my post?
-To add a signature to a post you must first create one; this is done via your Account Settings. Once created click Save Personal Settings and you are good to go.
How do I create a poll?
-Creating a poll is easy -- when you post a new topic (or edit the first post of a topic, if you have permission) you should see a Add Poll form above the main posting box. If you cannot see this then you probably do not have rights to create polls. You should enter a Poll Question for the poll and then at least two options.
Why can't I vote in polls?
-Only registered users can vote in polls so as to prevent spoofing of results. If you have registered and still cannot vote then you probably do not have appropriate access rights.
Why can't I access some boards?
-Some boards may be limited to certain users or groups. To view, read, post, etc. you may need special authorization which only the forum moderator and board administrator can grant, so you should contact them.
What are Announcements?
-Announcements often contain important information and you should read them as soon as possible. Announcements appear at the top of every page in the forum to which they are posted. Whether or not you can post an announcement depends on the permissions required, which are set by the administrator.
What are Sticky topics?
-Sticky topics appear below any announcements in viewforum and only on the first page. They are often quite important so you should read them where possible. As with announcements the board administrator determines what permissions are required to post sticky topics in each forum.
What are Locked topics?
-Locked topics are set this way by either the forum moderator or board administrator. You cannot reply to locked topics and any poll contained inside is automatically ended. Topics may be locked for many reasons.
User Levels and Groups
What are Administrators?
-Administrators are people assigned the highest level of control over the entire board. These people can control all facets of board operation which include setting permissions, banning users, creating usergroups or moderators, etc. They also have full moderator capabilities in all the forums.
What are Moderators?
-Moderators are individuals (or groups of individuals) whose job it is to look after the running of the forums from day to day. They have the power to edit or delete posts and lock, unlock, move, delete and split topics in the forum they moderate. Generally moderators are there to prevent people going off-topic or posting abusive or offensive material.
