In here we'll answer all the common questions we get in this forum. If you have any question/answer pairs to add, please do so in here. Please don't use the thread for asking questions unless you think it's a common question with a very short answer. Topics requiring longer discussion or multiple opinions should get their own threads. I shall be editing this post to add more FAQs as they are brought up.


1. I recently tried to change my avatar and the size (possibly) changed, but the image itself did not. What did I do wrong?

A: Your new avatar most likely did upload correctly, but your old avatar has been stored in your computer's cache which is where your computer looks first when trying to load images. To force it to load the new image, simply press F5.

Q: How do I change my title above my stars?

A: You have to have 337 posts first. Once you have that, go to "My Controls". On the left, you'll see "Edit Profile info". Click it. The second box is for your "Custom Member Title". smile.gif

Q: Can you explain the user removal system? I am going on holidays but want to stay a member.

A: We only remove members who have 0 posts since joining and are over 1 month old. If you make 1 content based post (example: a post that records as a post count in our quality control system) then you will never be removed from our boards. So if you're going on holiday for 2 years, it won't matter. If you have a post or more, you are safe! Also note: If we come to a stage in the life of the community where we change board software or something similar, we may do a total cull of members and posts. But we are not aiming for that and we'd want to restore every single thing on a new board as it was before. That's why AFI Series exists. To collect information that would otherwise be lost forever!

Q: Why is my board name showing up every where and I didnt do anything to these people??

A: It's the wonderful you code. It always says the name of the person logged into afiseries. For me it will say "afarfainside" for jenn it will say "jenn", etc. It's not you. It's just whoever wrote it decided it would be funny. Also, you can quote what they say if you arent sure. it should say [ you ] without spaces.

This should have a simple answer, yet I cannot figure it out.

Q: How do you add multiple quotes when replying in a thread? [Details plz]

There's a million other things that I'd like to say, but there's not enough letters in my alphabet today.

Q: How can I reply to multiple posts without being obnoxious and making multiple posts of my own?

A: Easy! As you read through the thread and find posts you want to respond to, just click on the user posted image button below their post. The image should turn into a user posted image. You can click through multiple pages of the thread, and once you're ready to type your response, just click user posted image at the bottom of the page. All of the posts you selected will show up as quotes in the response box. If you accidentally leave the thread, never fear, the board will remember your selections as long as you don't leave this site.

Q: What are some non-obvious but cool things I can do with this board?

A: Did you know that you can easily get a tally of exactly how many times each person has posted in each specific thread? On a forum page that lists all the threads, just click on the number of posts in the third column. A box will pop up with the thread's post stats.

Did you know that there's an easy way to jump straight to the first post you haven't read in any thread? Threads with unread posts will have a user posted image next to them. Just click on this and it will take you straight there. The board saves remembers exactly what you have and haven't read for the past 3 days!

Q: What does it mean when a topic has different colored envelopes by them, and what do they mean?

A: When you enter a forum [a part of the message board containing related threads, organized by their subject i.e: General AFI] at the bottom of the page there will be a key matching the envelopes to what they indicate. If a thread is locked, that means nobody can post in it, but you can still read it. If a thread is moved, that means it was in the incorrect section of the board, just click on the title link, and you'll go straight to the thread in its new home. smile.gif

Q: What does it mean if this user posted image icon is next to a post?
A: That means that the thread is a game thread and when you post in that thread, it does not go towards your post count.

Q: I always see this arrow user posted image in a quote. What does it do?
A: If you click on it, it will take you back to the original post.

Q: My thread got closed, so should I make a new one?

A: NO! No one likes an abnoxious person. If your thread was closed, there was most likely a reason. If you don't understand said reason, PM the mod who closed said thread.

this should have a simple answer, and i'm sure i'm not the only one wondering...

Q: what is the ettiquete for re-uploading exclusive downloads? should it only be the person who uploaded it in the first place, or can anyone who previously downloaded the files re-up them?

I'm thinking this would have a pretty short answer:

I posted something in the AFI Rips forum a couple hours ago, and for some reason it isnt shown up there yet?

I wish thinking I should ask before making another thread.

This was confusing for me when I first posted there, I actually made a couple posts cause I thought my computer just fuxxored. You made the right decision, threads in that forum need to be approved before they show up.
