Profile FAQ

I.A Avatar FAQ

How Do i Get an Animated Avatar?

To get an animated Avatar you need a GIF File UNDER 65 KB Thats less than 1 MB.

My Animated Avatar isn't working! What's with that?

Try Uploading it VIA Facebook/Photobucket and uploading the URL.

I.B Information FAQ

Do I HAVE to enter all this information?

Well, No, BUT It helps people get to know you. I Recommend you at least put your Gender, Birthday, AND Quote

If I put information in my Contact feild, Can people see it?

YES. When you put in anything like that, It shows up.


I.C Account FAQ

My Password isn't working! What do i do?


Check your E-mail and look and see if you have the correct password, If not, Contact Me VIA E-mail

Why can't I Log in?

Have you registered? Seriously, you must register in order to log in. Have you been banned from the board? (A message will be displayed if you have.) If so, you should contact the webmaster or board administrator to find out why. If you have registered and are not banned and you still cannot log in then check and double-check your username and password. Usually this is the problem; if not, contact the board administrator -- they may have incorrect configuration settings for the board.

Why do I Even have to register?

Registration will give you access to additional features not available to guest users such as definable avatar images, private messaging, emailing to fellow users, usergroup subscription, etc. It only takes a few minutes to register so it is recommended you do so.


My Password needs reset. Will you reset it for me?

There will be a Series of questions i will ask, if you get one wrong then No, If correct i will send you your new password Via E-Mail.

I.D Preferancel FAQ

What Are the preferences?

The Preferances are the Choices where you choose what goes on with your Profile, What people can see and What goes to your E-mail account.

The time isn't right on the site. What do i do to fix this?

The times are almost certainly correct; however, what you may be seeing are times displayed in a timezone different from the one you are in. If this is the case, you should change your profile setting for the timezone to match your particular area. Figure out your UTC.

How Do I Change my Rank?

In general you cannot directly change the wording of any rank (ranks appear below your username in topics and on your profile depending on the style used). Most boards use ranks to indicate the number of posts you have made and to identify certain users. For example, moderators and administrators may have a special rank. Please do not abuse the board by posting unnecessarily just to increase your rank -- you will probably find that I will simply lower your post count.

I.E Signature FAQ

How do I add a signature to my post?

To add a signature to a post you must first create one; this is done via your profile. Once created you can check the Add Signature box on the posting form to add your signature. You can also add a signature by default to all your posts by checking the appropriate radio box in your profile. You can still prevent a signature being added to individual posts by un-checking the add signature box on the posting form.

I.F Attachments FAQ

What Are Attachments?

Attachments tab Show you how many Attachments you have put online which will show The name of it, And the downloads.

I.G Friends And Foes FAQ

What Are my Friends and Foes?

Your Friends Are people who show up on your profile showing to the public. (Recommended you add your SOCOM Buddies)
Your Foes are people who you hatein on. If you have an enemy Clan, Become a foe of every Member from the clan.

How Do I Add friends/foes?

Press Find a Username and put * To find the username. PLEASE CHECK THIS OCCASINALLY TO APPROVE THE REQUEST.

II Topic FAQ

II.A How To Add Images

Can I Post Photos?

Images can indeed be shown in your posts. However, there is no facility at present for uploading images directly to this board. Therefore you must link to an image stored on a publicly accessible web server, e.g. http://www.some-unknown-place.net/my-picture.gif. You cannot link to pictures stored on your own PC (unless it is a publicly accessible server) nor to images stored behind authentication mechanisms such as Hotmail or Yahoo mailboxes, password-protected sites, etc. To display the image use either the BBCode [img] tag or appropriate HTML

Please do not pester a group moderator if they turn your request down -- they will have their reasons.
