This thread is for asking questions about formatting your posts here at IG. Members can feel free to jump in and post information if they're well-versed on what to do.

Some posts that have been made in the past:

How do I change my rank system? -- Are you a geisha but you want to be a tayuu? This thread shows you how. There's a more current thread for this... promise to update soon.

How do I make a long link into a link with text? -- Useful for keeping links intact -- editing your post often corrupts long links. [Aw heck, I don't know where this post went. I'll fix it soon, promise.]

How do I write a report? -- If you need to let us know about a spammer, a forum glitch, etc.

How do I add an event or a meet-up? -- Let us know about any cool events you've heard of! Or let us know if you want to have a kimono meet-up!

How do I apply to become an IG Vendor? -- Are you a business owner and would like to advertise on IG? Find out how here!

How do I write a book review? -- Read a book you would like us to know about? Read how to format a book review here.

More to come, I'm sure! Like I said, feel free to jump in and write a guide in this thread if there's something you know how to do and would like to teach other members. Also, if you have a question, post it here! An experienced forum member or a mod will be happy to assist.

I hope this is the right place :)

How do I change my password? Every time I log in lately, I get the message that I have used up my number of log in attempts and must type a code, which makes me think someone else is trying to get into my account. I changed my password with the "forgot password" tool on the log in page, but I'd like to change it again to something that I can remember. How do I do this? :?

Urg, I've gotten this message too recently. >.<

Go to 'user control panel' at the near top right corner of your screen, then from the 'option's at the left side, pick 'profile', then 'edit account settings'. There should be your option to change your password.

I think there's a post to signal little glitches, but I seem to be unable to find it. Nothing important, but there are links to the subforums along with a general description of the forums' contents on the message board's main page, and for the Kitsuke forum, the one for the "Kitsuke scans" subforum hasn't been added.
Nothing life-threatening, indeed!

Here's that thread for bugs that you were looking for. And thanks for the head's up on the section not showing in the header on the main forum; I've fixed that.

How do I delete a post I made twice by accident? The offending thing is in kimono and kitsuke >> kitsuke >> kitsuke photogallery >> anime club night. I've edited the text to where it just says "derp derp double post how do I delete" for now, but..... hHow do I delete something? o.@?
Btw, Thank you mods for all that you do in keeping this place in shape!

moravenka - users can't delete posts. If you want it deleted because it's in the wrong place, or perhaps an accidental double post, just report it and say the reason is other and explain it's a double-post. Reporting something doesn't automatically give the user a strike or something, so there's no harm in doing so to your own posts.

The original post has gotten outdated. I'll work on it soon. Until then, if anyone is bored and wants to help out by either pointing out what is outdated and what's the correct info, or posting some additional helpful threads not mentioned in the first post, that would be much appreciated.

one way of doing it is to open a flickr account and upload them to there. if you have problems uploading to the flickr account directly, you can search around your account until you find a feature allowing you to email the photos to flickr (and auto upload). next, look to the bottom of the photo where there is a pull down menu that says "share" you click on that and a menu with three options appears. if you go to the third option "grab html/bbcode" a box with a link appears. at the bottom you select the size photo you want to use and then copy and paste the link into the IG thread. if you do it like this you dont even need to use the "image" function on IG. In general, to upload photo's to the forum you need an image hosting site that will give you a link of some sort to use. this is how i get photo's up. hope i was helpful
