since ive had loads of questions about various things im gonna try to explain as many as i can remember here for everyone. i will edit this post more as the questions come in but i think this covers most of the commonly asked questions.
______________________________________________________________________

smilies - we can all see the generic ones when we're posting over to the right of the screen. to get the extra smilies, click on the tab above them that says "View more Emoticons" and select "smilies 2" or "smilies 3"for more smilies.
______________________________________________________________________

posting a signature banner - i found it easier to have your banner uploaded to a photobucket account and copy the IMG tag line and then paste it to your siggy box. to center your signature, you have to manually put the center codes around your text/banner. here is an example: [ center ] and [ / center ] but DO NOT put any spaces between the codes and the text/banner.
______________________________________________________________________

+ - signs - this is how you add or subtrack a persons points. (kinda like karma touches cept you dont get to leave a message.)
______________________________________________________________________

posting videos - such as youtube etc etc. copy the address and when youre on the posting screen, click on the icon that looks like film to your upper right. it should be the 4th to last icon tab. simply paste the address into the pop up window, no need to select youtube or whatever, then click "ok". the proper tags will automatically be inserted for you.
______________________________________________________________________

getting your name switched to white - you must have 50 or more posts if you have joined after Jan. 1, 2010. members that joined on or before dec, 31 2009 will still fall under the 25 post count system.
______________________________________________________________________

changing your title - simply click on your profile, hover your cursor over your current user title and you will have two little bent arrows appear. click on them and change it whatever you like and then click the green check mark. there is a 16 space maximum for user titles i believe it is.
______________________________________________________________________

posting pictures - the easiest way to post pictures is by having a photobucket account and copying and pasting the IMG tag line just like posting banners. however, if you do not have a photobucket account you can still post pictures depending on their size. when you are on the posting phase of your post, you will see a bunch of icon tabs above the text box area. the 8th icon from YOUR right is the upload option from your computer. click this box and a pop up window will appear so you can browse your computer for whatever picture you want to upload. it gives an option to resize the pic, but usually you shouldnt have to. simply pick you pic and click the sumbit button. the next pop up will give you the option as to which version you want to post with a button for "copy" after it. i typically use the middle one. then click on the text area of your post and tab Ctrl v. the codes should pop up and vioala! then re-click the original icon tab for the pop up to go away and continue with your post.
