Then please read the Official Forum FAQ to find the answer. If you're still lost then please post here!


A quick computer FAQ:


I have Spyware!
Download this free program AdAwareSE. or this free program Spybot S&D Run them, several times. It will find and delete the spyware for you.

What the heck is Spyware?
Spyware are annoying little programs that your computer picks up from the internet. They often cause youíre computer to slow down, or invade your screen with pop-ups. If you let them pile up over time, there is a chance that they will prevent you from running your computer at all. Nasty things arenít they?

I have a virus! How do I get rid of it?
Download AVG virus scan. Itís not the best out there, but itís free and has saved my computer a few times. Consider investing in a name brand virus scan program, like Norton or McAfee. If you still canít fix it, post your problem here and we will try to help.

My computer runs so slow, it sucks!
Make sure you have download any updates for your operating system. Here is how you do Windows updates and here is how you do Mac updates. Also, make sure you defragment your hard drive scan your system for spyware. Both of these can slow your computer.

Internet Explorer sucks!
Hahahaha, yes it does. If you want an alternative to Internet Explorer try Firefox or Opera. Both are free, run great, and rarely infect your system with spyware.

Iím thinking of buying X computer. What do you think?
You can do a lot of computer research yourself on the internet. Consumer Reports is a good site to compare computers at. If youíre still not sure, post here with the name and specifics of the computer youíre thinking of. Someone here can probably give you an opinion.

My computer doesnít turn on, and itís spewing blue smokeÖhelp?
Um, unplug your computer and step away. Your machine may be on fire. Find an adult or a fire extinguisher. DO NOT use water on your computer. Start looking for a new machine cause youíre old one is dead.


If you have a computer related question please give us the folowing information:
Brand Name of Computer:
Operating System (windows/tiger/OSX/Linux/etc.):
Your type of Internet Connection:
Specific information on what your problem is:

Any advice given on this thread is just that, advice. Anything you do to your computer is your responsibility and not ours. If someone suggest you put a slice of cheese in your floppy drive and you do, then thatís your problem.

Happy Posting!

Okay, I know I'm not a newbie but I'm having a..bad..time with my avatar! I already have a picture chosen, its already being hosted by a site. When I go to edit my profile to add it I..type in my password and click the little check box and then I paste the code thing in there. I'm pretty sure that i don't change anything around. In the area where it says custom size or w/e ,I don't know what the height and width are, so I either put 100x100 or nothing at all. In the end no picture shows up!! -sigh- So if someone can help me out thats great. If a mod or anyone...yeah.....a mod, (not everyone)...has time here's the code thing: User Image And if possible can you all please tell me how to do it CORRETLY or do it for me. THANX!

I think you were putting in the full image code; you only need the address.

So, just paste the address (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v217/Sparkle2174/eye.jpg)
into the box, and put:

Width 71px
Height 74 px

and it should work.

Here are some good rules of thumb for RPGing here at the Realm

A few things that guide doesn't mention. It's a good idea to read through the entire RPG before you join, that way you know what's going on.

If it's a large or exstensive RPG, send a PM to the person who started it and ask permission to join.

If you want to start your own RPG you need to PM one of the RPG board moderators to start it.

I hope that helped!

Aw, no stress.

Okay, I'll try to make this very step by step, mk

1/Click the 'quote' button as before

2/ This should come up with a screen just like the normal post one, but with the persons post and a big quote code thing at the top.

3/ As you probably just want one little bit of the post, delete all the lines that you don't need.

4/You can then write your response below, or above or whatever.

5/Press 'Post' and ta-da!

I hope that helps..if not, I'll try taking some screenshots and stuff, okay?

This isn't really a 'help' question, but I've been here for a while and I still don't know about the claiming colors thing. Do people still have to claim a color in order to use it here, or can we just use colors as long as they're not banned? Please let me know, I've been wondering for a solid month now!

Okays, claimed colours. To put it simply, we abolished CC a few months ago, so feel free to use whatever colour you like, though it would be nice if you tried to pick something original, 'cause it's nice to be able to link someone to thier colour smiley

I think there is a link to a big list of colours on the guidelines, along with the list of banned colours.

Hope that helped!


ETA:Eh, no link or banned colours on teh Guidelines, I see. Sooo, they are as such:

link to colours list

BANNED
Blue
Brown
Maroon
Navy
Purple

Sorry about the confusion!

ETA#2 - *dumb* It's on the Forum FAQ, just above this.

Is it possible to delete threads you started even after ppl have replied to them? Or can only the moderators do that?

Only mods can do that. If you try to delete your post (as people tend to do) it deletes ONLY your post and is therefore pointless. So if you need any threads deleted, just PM a mod of the board or a global mod and we'll take care of it. grin

Are you using the AOL browser? Because that seems to have problems with Conforums; if so, try logging in, then minimising the window and opening Internet Explorer.
