Hello, this is the Big Topic Of Forum Information, or BTOFI. (Bi-tof-ee) This topic is to help new players (Possibly you too?) learn the ways of the forums. If you have read the rules, I suggest you read them here:
Now, let's begin to learn the Bad Eggs Online Forums.
•Editing Your Profile•
Editing your profile is easy, just click the profile button at the top right of the forums, and you can edit it from there. You can edit your Signature, Bio, Avatar, Account Info, Etc. Please do not make names really long or change them all the time. (At least let people know you are going to change your name.) Remember to keep signatures tidy and not too big also. :)
•Posting: When To Do It, And When Not•
This section, of course, is about posting, the basics of this forum! Please post in the correct places of the forums. Here are some examples of when to and when to not post:
An Old Inactive Topic: No
A New Inactive Topic: Yes
Pinned Topics: Yes
When you post in an old inactive topic, that is called grave digging a topic, please refrain from grave digging. (Topic that hasn't been posted in for 5 days or more is considered a dead topic.) Inactive topics that are new can be posted in to help others see the topic. All pinned topics can be posted in, whether it's new, old, or inactive. Also, please do not post multiple posts in a row, there is an edit button to use. And finally for posting, remember to post in correct places. (If you want to make a forum game, you'd post in The Lounge, if ya wanna share your ideas, post them in Suggestions.)
Say someone in the game, or on the forums asks for your password or is being mean. What should you do? Well, the best thing to do is send a PM to Rob(Rob's Profile) or John(John's Profile)
•Private Messaging (PM)•
So you want to tell someone something, but not let everyone else know it, right? Well, if you go to the person's profile, you can send them a "PM". This way you can message back and forth without letting others know about something private. There is also a "Send PM" button on the top of everyone's post.
•Posting Pictures Or Screenshots•
Lots of people have trouble posting pictures and/or screenshots on the forums. Here is a guide on how to take screenshots and post them.
1: To take a screenshot, use Control Key + Print Screen Key on what you want.
2: Then use paint (Or whatever you use) to edit/crop the wanted image.
3: Finally, save them image.
1: Use something like PhotoBucket, ImageShack, Etc. to upload the image.
2: After uploading, they will have an Image Code on their site.
(If not then use the Insert/Edit Image button on top of the post box.)
3: Use the Image Code on the forums, and bam, out comes your picture/screenshot.
Here is how the Image Button looks:
If you don't want to do all this, here is another solution(Credit to Noncryptic):
To take screenshots, simply follow these steps.
1. Click here to download a nice program.
2. Put your cursor over "Download" then move it to "Installer", then click.
3. Click "Save File", then click "Run"
4. Follow the instructions, then you're ready!
