Hello everyone.

7th March 2006, 4:41 AM
Hi Xero, welcome to SPPf!! Wow, that is one of the shortest introduction topics that I have seen!! Anyways, have fun and enjoy posting here!!

Here are some rules and links for you to look at!! However, credit for these links goes to Midnight Eefi, who posted a list of links in my newbie topic, and who inspired me to make a list of my own. Of course, credit also goes to the people that wrote these articles.

Announcements Forum (http://serebiiforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=4)
Important announcements by Serebii and other members of the SPPf staff go in this forum. It is a good idea to check it frequently, so that you can stay updated on what is going on at the forums.

User Control Panel (http://www.serebiiforums.com/usercp.php)
Use this to make changes to your siggy and update you profile, set your options, add an avatar and a profile piccy, and other cool things.

Rules (http://www.serebiiforums.com/rules.html)
These are the rules at the forums. You definitely need to read this, following the rules will be the best way to keep everybody on the forums happy, both yourself and the other members and staff. By following the rules, and displaying good judgement and posting skills will help you become a respected member of the community.

Complete Signature Rules (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=60702)
This post shows in detail the rules that you need to follow when making your siggy. If there is any confusion, you may get you siggy checked in the official siggy checking thread. The following members are the authorized siggy checkers... Wolf Goddess, TRJessie579, RaZoR LeAf, Jenni, Midnight Eefi, and Eszett. Get your Signature Checked!! (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=103081)

Newbie Help Topic/FAQ (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=91015)
This is a very helpful thread that gives a lot of info about the forums and how things work around here.

Forum Search (http://www.serebiiforums.com/search.php)
Use this to search for info on the forums. There is a chance that the answer to your questions may have already been answered.

User Ranks (http://serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=108697)
Meh, there have been a lot of confusion about the user ranks and the new little banners underneath our titles, so you may want to look at this, this shows the default titles that correspond to the number of posts that you have on the forum, as well as the little banners that correspond to postcount. Note that the titles listed are simply the default for your postcount, you can go to your user CP and change your title. Also, some of the forums that are rather busy and have topics that generally don't require a long reply will not count posts that you make in them towards your postcount. These forums will have a notation in italics underneath the forum description saying that posts don't count towards postcount. Also, moderators and administrators of SPPf have their own banners, they have no relation to their postcount. One last thing... although the banners/ranking systems are incentives to make more posts, you still need to make quality posts. A higher rank will not equal higher respect anyways. Respect is earned by quality of posts, not quantity.

Reading the first post, it helps! (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=104750)
It is always a good idea to read the first topic in a post completely, and not just the title of the topic. You will also want to make sure that you read the rest of the posts in a topic, or if it is a long topic, then make sure to read at least the last few posts, so that you know what direction the topic is heading, and whether or not a response is needed, and if a response is appropriate, you will know what a proper reply would be.

"I'm new" - Not an excuse (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=104750)
A short thread, it basically just lets you know that if you break any rules, saying "but I'm new and didn't know the rules" will not get you off the hook. It is every member's responsibility to know the rules of the forum before they post on it. This isn't to say that you have to be perfect or anything, because everybody makes mistakes. However, try your best to use good, sound judgement, and to make high-quality posts on the forums, and everything will be fine.

Adopt-A-Newbie Agency (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=87521)
This is a thread for new members to be adopted or for older members to adopt a new member. Basically, this is just for older members to help out new members until they get used to the forums.

Official Username Change Thread (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=96594)
If you ever want your username changed, then post a request here!!

Log Out Problems? This might help. (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=86680)
This is where you should go if you are having problems logging out of the forums.

Serebii Forum Moderators/Administrators List (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showgroups.php)
Moderator-Moderators can delete threads, edit threads, move threads, and delete posts, but only in the forums that they moderate.

Moderator+-Moderators+ can do everything that regular mods can, and they can also edit siggies and even ban members, but only in the forums that they mod.

Super Moderator-They can do everything that Moderators+ can, but they do these things in every forum.

Hey Xero, hope you enjoy your time here! Have fun, read all the rules, please do a search before starting a new thread, and visit all the links posted by our friendly Stardust25.

What they said. Welcome! :) PM me for whatever. And enjoy your stay.

There's a lot of rules here.

There's a lot of rules here.

Meh, they look like a lot, but a lot of them are just common sense/common courtesy rules. Just make good quality posts, and everything will be fine. You will get the hang of the forums quickly, so don't worry, just relax and have some fun here. The search function is very helpful. And if in doubt, feel free to PM somebody here, whether it be another friendly member/mod/admin, or even me, and somebody will help you. And if you PM me and I can't be of help, I will find somebody that can. This place is supposed to be fun, so that is what is really important!!

The more rules the better kept the forum is. =P This forum allows a good amount of free-willed expression in your posts even though the rules seems to hinder it.

Have fun and remember that you signed up to have fun. Also please preview your post before you press the 'submit reply' button. You'll be surprised at how many mistakes you can find.

I figured that someone would do/say that. Just letting you guys know that there was a SPAMmer in this thread who's posts got deleted. Those comments (other than the welcome) were to the spammer.

Anyway, welcome to SPPf. Hopefully you'll enjoy your time here, and meet new people :p
