I have a question about sigs. My sig shows up on every post I make, even if it's a second post I've made on a given page unless I unselect the "show your signature" option. I thought sigs only show up on the first post on a page and automatically not on the rest. Or does it just show up for the person posting? Thanks. :thumb:

How can I set the Upload Animated GIF for my signature on yes? and I think I set it up on spoiler for my posts because the background for the comment box is black. I want to know how to switch it off?

Huh, that's unusual. I can say for certain that you shouldn't see your own signature more times than anyone else. Did you unselect your signature option for your previous post?

I'm not completely sure what you're asking. Are you having trouble uploading an animated gif to your signature for some reason?

As far as a spoiler, make sure you don't set it equal to anything. To be clearer, this:
[*spoiler=something]spoiler[/spoiler]
creates this:
[spoiler=something]spoiler[/spoiler]
Whereas this:
[*spoiler]spoiler[/spoiler]
creates this:
[spoiler]spoiler[/spoiler]

Naturally I added the asterisks to let you see that code directly. If you're still confused you could hit "Quote" on my post to see it directly.

Oh wow, I had no idea there was two ways going about the spoiler tags o.o

How do you do the attach thumb nail? I think that's what they're called o.o;

I'm not sure about the previous post, but I think I’ve figured out the source of the confusion. Right after I post the sig is there if I don't turn it off, but once I refresh it goes away. Just tested it in the goof off. I don't know why i didn't notice that before. :sweat: Thanks for answering anyway.

Talking about the goof off, why do posts there not count towards one's post counts? I'm just curious.

I remember seeing there that all threads made in there are subject to be deleted, so that may be the reason why ^^ If the thread were to be deleted then would be our post we made in that thread :)

I think I got it now.thanks


Edit:But for some reason, when I click on the "Insert Image" or Insert Link boxes, it doesn't pop up and I tried to do this in my "Edit Signature" box. it's only in my signature.

Are you sure you're in the right thread? This doesn't seem like a frequently asked question o.o

How do we post as anonymous?

I want to ask it. I don't care as long as the mods don't mind that kind of question. :P

You can post anonymously by signing out and posting as a guest. Of course, not all forums are open for posting or viewing if you aren't logged in, but if you needed to make an anonymous prayer request or something, just post as a guest instead.

As this thread isn't in Goof Off, we'd prefer the questions remain at least fairly serious, please.

Ummm.....let's see if I remember this right....
1. If you wanna message somebody, find their name, and click the send them a message thing....you can figure it out....it's real easy.
2-3.Yes, we have profiles. You can customize them by going to the left panel on your personal user page ( I guess that's what you call it) and playing around.
4. If I stand correct, don't swear our make racist comments....stuff you would say around an older friend or teacher....if that helps any.
Jeremiah 29:11-"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord,"plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

I would just add to what Phantom Sorano already said in pointing out that we do have a filter for the really heinous words (so if your post is censored, go back and edit that word out and you'll know not to use it again), or, as always, you can ask a mod if you aren't sure. I've found it's far easier to say "no that's not good" than to give a list of things to avoid.

Especially since that post would look like this:

Don't say the following things:
***
***
****
****
****
*****
*****
*****

etc...

Haha, that so made me laugh, Mith ^__^ I really needed that too XD Isn't there a "what not to say" list or something on here? Or, was that something else o.o? I think I may be thinking about the "Do Not Discuss" titles ^^;

I am shocked, shocked and disappointed that you would use such language.

There is not one to my knowledge. However, just avoid what most people consider "bad words" as well as primary sexual anatomy and you probably won't run into the censor.

I take it that the same words that are chat filtered are filtered out here in the threads as well? Lol, I don't dare to test one out xD;

*Is reminded of an anatomy slip in the chat while Mith was in there (not made by me, but it made me laugh XDD)* >_>

New question added:
Why is the parents section blank?

Having a section specifically for parents unfamiliar with anime has long been one of Ashley's goals for this site. However, among various real life obligations this hasn't been priority, so it remains a placeholder.

What does the + after someone's name on the active list means?

Actually, you can attach a maximum of three things to a post; you just have to upload the first picture, which will open the box for a second a third picture to be uploaded. XD
