Help Thread for Forum/Chat newbies

Since we quite some people here and already have some people here which aren't that familiar with Forums and all their functions . also through excessive Internet use alot people use acronyms as a habit to shorten things, i will list a bunch of things and if there are still things open you would like to know just ask.

EDIT/ Doublepost . Instead of Doubleposting you can click the little pencil in the top right corner of your post.

Quoting: if you want to quote someone in the forum, click the " sign in the top right corner of the persons post.

Posting a picture: right click on the picture and click "copy picture adress" ( you you have the url with the .gif or .jpeg in the end). For smaller pictures click the button with the 2 triangles to get the brackets and then just paste your link in between it.
For bigger pictures you go to "custom BBcodes" and choose chatpic to get the [chatpic][/chatpic] brackets. (it posts the pictures in a smaller size than )

Youtube videos: got to " custom BBcodes" and choose Youtube to get the [youtube][/youtube] brackets. go to Youtube,choose a video and copy the part of the URL after the equal sign =. for example https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-C5sDdQew4 >>> N-C5sDdQew4 . Past it inbetween the brackets. You can also modify the brackets yourself to [youtubeHD][/youtubeHD] to get a bigger embedd.

Embedding xboxclips clips: DON'T just copy the URL,it will autoplay, also in spoilers,super annoying. You have to click on Embed:Link on the right side. copy url> customBBcodes>[xboxclips][/xboxclips] > copypasta http://xboxclips.com/HWM%20Gorillars/7e ... 56e1/embed

Spoiler. easiest way woul be to mark all the thing that you want in the spoiler and then click "costumBBcodes"> spoiler > bam everything spoilered.

Chatbox:
Editing your post:.In the chatbox you click on the little arrow besides your name and the on the pencil

Quoting:Click the little arrow besides the persons name and click the " sign

adressing people directly: you click the @ besides their name

Posting pictures:go to "custom BBcodes" and choose chatpic to get the [chatpic][/chatpic] brackets.

Embedding xboxclips clips: DON'T just copy the URL,it will autoplay, also in spoilers,super annoying. You have to click on Embed:Link on the right side. copy url> customBBcodes>[xboxclips][/xboxclips] > copypasta http://xboxclips.com/HWM%20Gorillars/7e ... 56e1/embed (the /embed in the end is important)

If you need to spice up your sentence, use the pineapple smiley.
