In order to clean up the Newbie Forum and reduce the space taken up by stickies I had removed most of them and placed all the information into one big topics.

How To Put Attachments In To Posts


Find the Picture you have on your computer.
When making a New Thread / Replying, look toward the bottom of the Page and Find the Button that says "Manage Attachments"

http://img130.imageshack.us/img130/6381/manageattachments1qj.jpg

A new window will pop up. You can also attach images from the internet. File size limits are listed for each format.
Choose the file and click Upload. After the file uploads, you will find the filename on the main reply page

http://img130.imageshack.us/img130/2232/fileattached4vk.jpg

Close the Attachment Window and continue posting your topic as normal

Either:

OR

Right Click on the image, go to 'Properties' and copy the URL from this (Highlight and press Ctrl+C)
FOR MAC USERS

Right/Ctrl click the image, choose 'Open in New Window' and copy the URL from the Address bar (Edit > Copy)
On the forums go to User CP and choose 'Edit Signature' from the options on the left.
Place the cursor in the text box and Paste the URL into it (Edit > Paste)

At the end of the URL, after the filename write in

It should look like this:

http://www.serebiiforums.com/images/avatars/059.gif

How To Put Links Into Sigs


Find the webpage you want to link to.
Copy the URL from the Address bar (Edit > Copy)
On the forums go to User CP and choose 'Edit Signature' from the options on the left.
Place the cursor in the text box and Paste the URL into it (Edit > Paste)
Preview your signature to check if it's OK, then click Save

If you want text to link to a webpage, but do not want the plain URL, then follow these instructions.


Follow the initial instructions to put the URL into your signature.
At the start of the URL, before http write in =[/font]
At the end of the URL, write in a single ]
Now write in what you want the text to be (Such as "Read my fanfic")
After the text write in
Preview your signature to check if it's OK, then click Save

It should look like this:

Serebii Forums (http://www.serebiiforums.com/index.php?)

Signature Material

If you're looking for something to go into your signature, a Banner, Image or Trainer Card. If you want one, then head over to the Fan Art Request Forum, where there are numerous 'shops' where people will gladly make you one. If you want Pokemon Sprites, then check the Avatar list and get the pictures from there. How to do so is explained above.

If you're adding things to your signature that you have made yourself, then be sure the read, understand and follow the Signature Rules ( http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=60702). If you don't, you may find your signature is removed by one of the mods.

Trainer Cards

A lot of people aren't realising that they need to go to the Fan Art section for Trainer Cards, so a basic tutorial for making one has been made to go here.

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a301/orangez53/TC-Tutorial.png

The collection of backgrounds from Fire Red and Leaf green can be found on this link:

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a301/orangez53/FRLG-Scenes.png

If you need any further information, help or guidance with your trainer card, then you must ask in the fan Art forum, not here.


Custom Avatars

You may see some members with Custom Avatars. They are moderators who have earned the right to have them. Normal members are not permitted to have Custom Avatars due to the bandwidth that would be taken up by 8,000+ members uploading their own images.

There is a wide array of avatars available for use, and, if you have a fast enough connection, they can ALL be viewed here (http://www.serebiiforums.com/misc.php?do=showavatars).

How to become a Mod

A lot of people wonder how you become a mod on the forums. Well this little FAQ should answer your questions.


Don't Ask. The most important of all points and it's first on the list. Don't post about it, don't send PM's about it, and don't talk about it in the chatroom. If you're asking about it, then you most likely don't have the necessary qualities required of a mod.

Know the Rules. In the forums you frequent there are set rules that you should know. Not only that, but there's the overall forum rules. It says a lot about the person if they break basic rules, and a mod shouldn't be breaking the simple things.

Have the skills. Do you have something to contribute to the forums? If you do, then you'll be considered to be in the ranks above the regulars. It doesn't make you better than them, it just means that you have something to offer that's new, exciting or useful. It will let others know that you have skills that make you stand out.

Know the current situation. Look around, and check out how many mods there are at the moment. There's a lot of them at the moment, and new ones are only appointed when they are required.

Be patient. Nobody is saying you wont ever be modded. You might, the future is never certain, but don't expect it. You might think you're modding material, but it's not your decision to make. Be a good member and do the best you can to help. Don't forget that you're here primarily to have fun.

What is SPAM?

What is SPAM?
SPAM basically stands for Stupid Pointless Annoying Messages, though there are numerous other abbreviations they are all based around the one same point. SPAM is everywhere, and it continues to litter the forum every day.

Why is SPAM wrong?
Well for starters, it gets in the way of the regular posts. It's short and pointless so there's no need for it to be there and it's taking up space. It's annoying, and people have to scroll past it it to get to what they want to see.

Why shouldn't I SPAM?
The number one reason why you shouldn't, is that it's against the rules. SPAM is also a sign of a lower class. You can fast become known as a 'Spammer' and your reputation will drop.

How do I know if i'm making SPAM or not?
Ask yourself some questions while you look over your posts.

Can others read it?
Is what you are typing straight to the point, or is it littered with things that distract the reader from what you are trying to say? Things like bad grammar and replacing words with letters or numbers. Smilies are very distracting too, and shouldn't be used unless necessary. For example:


;355; ;142; ;016; i LUV p0k3m0n!!! i r t3h 1337 p0k3m0n m4zt3r ;142; ;016; ;348;

Are you replying to SPAM?
If you see SPAM, and you reply to it, with the intent to say it is SPAM, then you too are Spamming. This in turn relates to a topic that need closing. For example:


This is SPAM and should be closed.

Is it in the right place?
If you decide to put an RPG in a game forum, then you have Spammed. It's in totally the wrong forum and will attract the wrong posts. It will likely have people saying it's in the wrong forum and it should be closed. Your topic will gather more and more SPAM until a mod closes it. In most cases a mod will catch it and move it to the correct forum, but you should be careful that you are posting things in the correct forum first.

Are you repeating things?
If someone asks a question that you know the answer too, you will probably reply to answer. Check first that nobody has already answered it. Reply with a repeat of an answer is SPAM. An exception to this, is if you can answer with more detail. For example:


Thunderbolt is a TM available in the Game Corner

Thunderbolt is in the Game Corner. It can be bought for about 4000 coins.

Does it have a point?
Look at the topic, the first post and the other replies. Now check your reply and see if it has relevance to the subject under discussion. If the topic isn't pokemon related and you have replied with "Shedinja is my favourite pokemon", then your reply is SPAM. Make sure you are on topic.

Have you just posted?
Look at the last poster in the topic. If it's you, then don't reply again. This is considered Double Posting. If you have forgotten something, or wish to add more to your reply, there is an Edit button you can use to add more to your existing post.

The Edit Button: http://www.serebiiforums.com/images/buttons/edit.gif

This also includes replying in order to 'bump' a topic up. Replying to a topic puts it first on the forum page. If your topic hasn't had any replies yet, or it has and it's just sunk down the page a little, bumping is not an excuse for getting more replies. If the topic is more than a few weeks old, regardless of who the last poster was, do not bump the topic in order to revive it.

How long has passed since someone replied to your last post?
Are you replying to a post made only a few minutes ago or are you having a short conversation with a member? Don't. The forums are not a chat room. If you want to talk to a member use Private Messages not topics. Don't hang around a topic refreshing so that you can reply straight away.

For Fan Art and Fanfiction:

Are you rating the fic?
If you have replied with something that only gives a rating out of 10 and nothing more it is SPAM. Unless you intend to offer criticism to aid the artist or writer, or tell them what you like, your rating alone isn't going to help them. For example:


This picture is 8/10!

For RPG and Fanfiction:
Is your post of a good length?
Both these forums require more than the average post length. If you are writing an RPG or replying to one, or writing a fanfic, then they must be of adequate length. Anything less is considered to be SPAM. You can find out more details by reading the rules of these forums.

What are the consequences for Spamming?
Punishment is based on the severity of the SPAM, but it will follow these basic steps.

You will be warned, most likely in the topic itself or via private Message from a Moderator.
The more warnings you receive the higher the chance is you will be banned.
If you are banned it will likely be temporary. It';s length will vary on the severity or amount of SPAM.
You may be permanently banned if you continue to SPAM, or your SPAM has gone beyond just Stupid, Pointless and Annoying.

1. Find the smilie

The best place to do this is by using the Smilie List (http://www.serebiiforums.com/misc.php?do=getsmilies&editorid=vB_Editor_001).

2. Get the URL

Right click the smilie itself and choose Properties. In the properties menu, highlight the URL, and right click that to copy the link.

How do I upload an image?

When you have an image on your computer, you'll need to upload it to the internet if you want to show it in your sig or in a post on the forums.

2. Upload your image

Make sure you know where your image is on your computer, so you can find it. With the image host page loaded (in this case Imageshack), click Choose File. Find the file and choose ok. Now click Host It! and wait for the file to be uploaded.

3. Get your URL

The next page that loads will have a list of links. One should read 'URL'. That is the direct link to your image. Use that with image tags (check this FAQ for help) to put your image into a post.

Ok for starters, maybe you should go read the FAQ again, particularly the bt about double posting considered spam and a warnable offence. Seems you missed that bit. Secdondly, right at the top is a link that sayd "Edit Avatar". If you click that, then you can look through ALL the avatars and find yourself the one you want.

Very nicely done, RaZoR LeAf! There was a load of things in which I did not, realize. The part that helped me out most would probably be the part about SPAM. Maybe if all the n00bs in this place would take a look at this, they might become 'Modeled Citizens' and not be such SPAMmers. If I had the power, I'd wipe 'em all out in a heart beat.

My overall rating of this FAQ: 9.999/10 -Complete, Helping, Readable, Understandable, and all anyone would ever need to know. It clears so many things up. I just wish everyone else would read it...

(I couldn't think of a better place to post this, and this topic does talk about post count, etc.)

I noticed something kinda odd about my post count... According to my profile, I've made 30 posts total, but when I checked the individual posts, I had 28 in the RMT section, 10 in the D/P section, and a few others elsewhere. Unless I'm horribly mistaken and blind, posts in the RMT and D/P sections count towards the total number of posts.

So why is there a difference between the post count shown and the actual number of posts?

Update: I just posted something in the RMT section and my post count didn't change....odd....

Update2: Ok, now it says RMT doesn't count. Mystery solved lol

When you create a new thread there will be an option at the bottom called "Post a Poll".
Just tick the "Yes, post a poll with this thread" checkbox and create the thread.

I have a suggestion to make, maybe it would be a good idea to post here the IP address of serebii.net since we could directly go there instead of being shipped across the Web from site to site. I know some users had it in their sigs yesterday but since some threads were deleted, I can't find it anymore ...

Anyhow, I thought this could be useful and maybe create less panic on the forums...

RaZoR LeAf
6th September 2006, 8:41 PM
There's no need for it unless there is a specific reason to use the IP adress. If there is, it will be provided by Serebii.

I hope someone can have the effin' answer for this...

Since yesterday, My PostCount Has Dropped By 25. From the Orange Island Champion badge to the Jade Star. I looked up if any post count forums/subfurums changed, and of course nothing has been deleted or moved.

And I really doubt that a mod deleted any of my posts... and the last time I deleted one of my posts on the edge of the rank change, the rank stayed the same...

[And I'm pretty sure the hacker is gone, and if he isn't, I don't think he would attack meh]

So I'm not sure is something happened, or if someone deleted a thread I frequently posted in (Which would most likely be the Happy Birthday Threads, but those havn't been destroyed or anything like that). Would anyone have an answer for me?

When you subscribed to a thread, you'll receive emails when there has been a new post in the thread and you'll also see it at the main page of your userCP then.

If you're adding things to your signature that you have made yourself, then be sure the read, understand and follow the Signature Rules. If you don't, you may find your signature is removed by one of the mods.

the signature rules link doesn't work...

I figured that these quesitons should be so obvious that they belong here. I've been a "forum wanderer." That is, I've roamed from site to site, checking out what they've got and looking for answers. Looking at what other boards have or don't have, I've come to these three questions:

1. I understand why you can't upload your own Avatars straight to the site. However, why restrict Avatars linked from other sites? In all the other message boards I've been to, I just stuck one that I put up on ImageShack, with the exceptions of forums for huge sites like the cNet group. (The reason I haven't borrowed one here is because of a principle of mine: I never use an Avatar or signature image I didn't draw myself.)

2. I see an Anime discussion forum. Where would animation (and live-action programming, for that matter) from any other country go? Or is this from Japan's point of view, where all animation is considered anime?

3. I also see a Fan Art board. Is there a place for any artwork that bears no relation to Pokémon?

1. They're still stored on the server

2. Entertainment in Misc Discussion I expect.

3. You can put it in Fan Art, it's not just for pokemon. If it's other art, as oppose to Fanart, then you can put it in Digital Media. Like graphic design, poster work, things like that.

Ophie
6th November 2006, 9:53 PM
Yeah, I checked on those board, so I got the answers to #2 and #3. Thanks anyway!

As for #1, is it the design of vBulletin boards that all Avatars are transferred onto the main site's server? I know that with phpBB, off-site Avatars are displayed as remote links.

Having a few problems concerning my sig.

I currently have exactly six lines in my sig; that much is apparent, correct? Well, I recently tried to add a link to a video, http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/flash/posting.php to be exact, in between my other two SPPf links. Thus, I would have it there, and still preserve my six-line count, correct?

Not so. I tried to preview it, and was shown the message, "Your signature contains too many lines. You are only allowed to have 7 lines or less." Which is completely absurd since I only have six lines. So I was wondering, why is this happening? Is it related to the video itself, or is it a forum problem? I have already tried logging out and back in, and posting, but to no avail.

And another thing - why do some members have more than seven lines of text? And how did they manage it? And how are they "getting away with it," considering it's against the rules?

Thanks to anyone who can help.

Joining certain usergroups can allow over 7 lines of text in a signature. It's a glitch of sorts.

how do u changethat small banner thing under ur name?It's in User CP, and under "Edit Profile" and where it says "Custom Usertitle". That's your custom usertitle.

Um, well, he said "banner," so I think he's referring to the rank picture.

So anyways, that is simply a picture that represents your user rank and shows how many cumulative posts you have. It changes when your postcount goes up. For a complete list of user ranks and the amount of posts needed to get each one, go here. (http://www.serebiiforums.com/faq.php?faq=new_faq_item9#faq_usertitles)

The whole point of this topic is that it answers questions. Had you looked on the first page you would have seen that. Dammit, when I post the new FAQ, it is so never opening.

Ok, I'm trying to change my avatar. I open up the D/P anime screens, and all the pictures and the links to the next pages float off the side of the screen! How can I prevent this?

How can I prevent this?If I understand what you're saying, you can't prevent that. It's because the sizes of the avatars are different and some might be too large so they 'force' the others to scroll off to the right side.. If you can't see them, it probably is your own browser, but I doubt any browser besides Opera does that.

Go to the appropriate forum (in your case FanFiction), and find the stickies. They should be the threads near the top. Above the stickies is a button that reads "New Thread." Click it to create your own thread.

Than they spammed. You can report their post in that case. However, if they posted a mere few minutes after you did, then it's excusable as they may have taken time to type, think, etc. And if they provided extra information as well, then it's not spam.

Unless you mean quoting, like this, which is perfectly normal.

Hello, I wouldlike to ask if anyone @ the fan art section can actually draw me a picture with pokemon characters, so that I can change my avatar...

TRJessie579
14th December 2006, 6:25 PM
1. Wouldn't this be more appropriately asked in...I dunno...the actual Fan Art SECTION? O_o

2. You can't use a custom avatar anyway, members that are not mods are only allowed to use those that are on the regular list.

How to change name

...You're a bit late.

Had you checked the Official Name Change Thread, you would have seen that the last chance to change your name was today. However, it is now closed, so you'll have to wait until March to change your name.

You have to use an image hosting site, like Imageshack or Photobucket, to get your picture online so you can link to it.

Yes, we will be getting Diamond and Peral User Ranks, but we have to wait until everything comes out in English before we name anything.

IIRC.

how do you place images side by side?

Put the url's that are surrounded by IMG tags next to each other instead of on a new line.

Brandon-kun
1st January 2007, 6:51 AM
Example;

[*img]http://www.serebiiforums.com/images/smilies2/488.gif[/img] New Evolutions ..... [*img]http://www.serebiiforums.com/images/smilies2/233.gif[/img]

Just place them together, or if you want words between them, add them between. So, that turns into this; (Without the *'s though.)

Could someone tell me how to create threads if we're allowed 2

Brandon-kun
3rd January 2007, 3:49 AM
Yes, we are allowed to create threads, here are intructions for you to make one.

1) Go to a section in our Pokemon Community. (e.x; Fan Art Requests {I'm not saying you have to do the specific forum})
2) Click 'New Thread' at the left corner of forum.
3) Type whatever you want, but make sure it is in the subject your are posting in. (Don't forget to make a title.)
4) The click 'Submit Thread', or if you want to check it in a post before you enter it click, 'Preview Thread'.

I hope I helped.

Okay first of all; don't double post, because you will get an infraction, and if you get enough points from infractions, that will lead you to be banned.

And, I think someone already answered your question in this thread named, Unfair (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=185904)?
