Note From BigNutter: Several of the Facts on the following pages are now out of date. I'm going to be working on a 2012 VB4 version. However, the Majority of the stuff is still valid. (If you notice the images are from 2006 when the forum was just restored from the Mass Deletion.) With the Update to VB4 almost all of the images are now out of date. The images that do not need updating are in sections that need updating.
This still mentions Mod+, a rank we've not had for a while. Well, it also barely mention Trade forums..
Newbie Help & FAQ
The old Newbie Topic and FAQ was well received, but it was a nightmare to update due to post length restrictions, people replying to it and general organisation of the content. Therefore, I took it upon myself, with no suggestion from outside to completely revamp it into a proper FAQ. Originally it was going to include a lot more things, such as how to use Search and all the options in the User CP. In hind sight, and helpfully pointed out by Virtual Headache, that would have been too much for a forum FAQ. So this is the trimmed down version.
