SHH FAQ! Avatars, Sigs, Custom Titles, Infractions, and More! New Members READ!
ALL users have groups associated to them. Primary and Secondary.
Many things on this board, function off of the users Primary Group.
Groups and their permissions are as follows:
Users in this groups have between 0 and 1 posts.
Users are in this group when they have 2 posts.
Users are in this group when they have been a Hypester for a week.
Users are in this group when they have been a Hypester for 2 Weeks and have made 100 posts.
Users are in this group when they have been a Hypester for 1 Month and have made 300 posts.
Users are in this group when they have been a Hypester for 3 Months and have made 1000 posts.
Users are in this group when they have been a Hypester for 6 Months and have made 2000 posts.
Question 1: I have the right number of posts. How come I still can't get a sig/custom title/avatar/etc.?
Answer: There is a series of scripts that run on the board and run only ONCE EVERY 30 minutes. This script promotes users from one level to another. This means, if you post your 100th post, you will not suddenly have the abilities of the Advanced Users-Level 3 group, UNTIL this script runs. So basically, you will have to wait up to a half hour for this to happen.
Question 2: Why am I getting flooded with emails from threads I posted in?
Answer: Subsciptions. You have the thread subscribed WITH sending you IMMEDIATE email. This means the moment someone posts in the thread, you get an email. The only way to change it, is change your Subscription Method in your Profile then DELETE the subscription that is sending you the email, and re-subscribe it (in that order).
Question 3: Why do some users have a + next to their name in the Whos Online list on the bottom of the main page?
Answer: Those are users you have on your Buddy List. Simple.
Question 4: How big can my attachments be, and what can I attach?
Answer: 50KB files is as large as you can go. You can upload the following files, bmp, doc, gif, jpg, pdf, png, psd, txt, zip - Be careful with the ZIP format.
Question 5: How do I find out whether or not my buddies in my Buddy List are online?
Answer: Click on "Quick Links" at the top of every page (next to "Log Out") and, at the drop-down menu, click on "Open Buddy List". A list of your buddies shall appear, indicating who among them are online and offline, with a checkbox next to each name for you to send a PM to them.
Question 6: Attachments, what size and file type can be attached?
Answer: 150KB is now the max size. As for file types...
bmp, doc, gif, jpg, pdf, png, psd, txt, zip
Question 7: How did I get a referral? Did I break a rule?
Answer: Whenever a new user registers onto SuperHeroHype, there is a line that they can fill out called "Referrals". That's simply asking "Who on this site told you about it?". Who referred you to this site? It has absolutely NOTHING to do with behaviour WHATSOEVER.
Question 8: Why can't I have a signature/avatar/custom title?
Answer: Simple. You've not posted enough, or been here long enough. See above for post requirements.
Question 9: How big can my sig be? Can I have an image in my sig?
Answer: Signatures can be no larger than 5 or 6 lines in normal font size. Multiple lines of extra large type [size 5 or higher] or excessive spacing is NOT permitted [this, however, is not such a big deal if you include SPOILER tags in your signature, since in these tags, they do not stretch the page]. If you choose to have more lines, or wish to have two or more YouTube videos in your sig as well, you may do so, providing you place it in a spoiler tag. Violators will be warned ONCE to change the sig. If the sig is not fixed, the poster will lose the ability to have a signature.
Question 10: I'm tired of being SHHPoster61284. Can I get a name Change?
Answer: Yes, only by specific Administrators
Answer: Its a security feature. We have started having having bots and automated scripts posting on the forums. They never reply to existing threads, they create new ones. This allows us to not allow brand new user accounts to post new threads, but can reply to them. Once they hit 2 posts, they can then start their own threads.
Question 12: How do I write custom text for a link, or even add an image to my post?
Answer: All your bulletin board code can be found here. If you look at the bottom of any thread, it's the first link under "Posting Rules".
