Forum Feature Definitions & How-To
Here are a few new features that came with the upgrade to the message board. These settings can be changed/added by going clicking on user cp in the top right of the page.
How do I get a picture under my username?
These small images are called Avatars. Click on Edit Options and scroll to the bottom. Click on change Avatar. There are hundreds of pics so pick the one you want to be identified with. You can change it at any time you want.
Can I upload my own picture to use as my Avatar?
You can upload your own picture as soon as you've made at least 10 posts on the board. Follow the steps above and choose "use custom avatar" to upload your picture. The picture must be less than 10240 bytes in size and no bigger than 65x65 pixels.
You can ignore a particular person's posts.
Ignore lists are used for those people who's messages you wish not to read. By adding someone to your ignore list, those messages posted by these individuals will be hidden when you read a thread.
Click on Ignore List and type their name in one of the blocks.
This enables you to see which of your friends are currently online. You may add any member of this board to your buddy list by clicking on the Buddy button under the person's name. To see if a buddy is on the board, click on user cp.
Private messages work a little like email, but are limited to registered members of this board. A person must be on the board to send or receive private messages.
Reading Private Messages
If you have the option of having a pop-up telling you that someone has sent you a message set to Yes in Edit Options, you will only get this pop-up when you are on the board. If you set it to no, check the bottom of the main forum page to see if you have one waiting for you. Go to user cp to read them.
Sending Private Messages
If you don't want anyone sending you a private message, set the option to No in Edit Options.
Clicking on calendar in the top right will pop up a calendar that will show you any activities that RHSS might have going on and will also show who is having a birthday.
Be sure to put your birthday in your profile!!!! This is located in Edit Options. No one will see your age. The only thing that shows on the calendar or in your profile is the month and day.
Your Private Calendar
You can add your own personal notes and events to the calendar. No one will see your events but you. It will not show publicly.
You can get more definitions of what things are by going to the FAQs page.
Report this post to a moderator
This link is located on every post made on the forum and is there to ONLY be used to report spam, advertising messages, and problematic (harassment, fighting, or rude) posts. Please do not use this function to ask questions on how to do something on the board. Please ask your questions on the board itself or send a private message to a moderator.
