Rules + Tips
Some small rules and tips you should take notice.

- Multiple accounts are okay as long as you do not spam, or talk to yourself. I will find out about the other names if you start to spam.
- Keep your signature content at a reasonable size. The signature image should not take over the screen, or lag computers.
- Please do not flood the board. Flooding the board means to make a whole bunch of threads in 5 minutes. I will delete every single thread you flood the board with.
- You may post about bands the members should check out, non-music advertising is not allowed. If you do post non-music advertising, I will delete it.
- DO NOT ASK FOR LYRICS ON THE GENERAL DISCUSSION BOARD. I WILL DELETE EVERY LYRIC REQUEST. PLEASE GO TO THE LYRICS REQUEST FORUM.
- Trolling is not allowed.
- Constant flaming is not allowed.
- Nude pictures. Post it in a link with a warning, and I'll be fine with it. If you post it without putting it in a link, I will delete it.
- If you're offended easily, please consider leaving this forum.
- If you are unsure if the idea of your thread hasn't been posted yet, please use the search tool before posting.
- Do not make a thread just to chat with a certain person. That is why the option "Private Message" was created. If you make the thread, I will delete it.
- We do not want to hear your thoughts on bands that you think have "sold out." If you do post about it, I will delete it.
- We do not care if you're more punk/emo/hardcore than us. All we care is about the fucking music.
- Bansh is the admin of the site, and Arry is the moderator of the general discussion forum.
- No black pplzz pleeaaze!!!1! n no fattiezz plz!!1! dey r desgustin cuz dey eat all da chickin

If you break one of these rules, I will give you warnings. If you continue, you will be banned.

To insert an image into your response, first you must upload your picture to a server. I would suggest Photobucket. To do that, when you're logged into Photobucket, click on the browse button next to the little white box. Find the picture on your computer, then click upload.

When your image is done uploading onto photobucket, there are three little boxes under neath your image that you just recently uploaded. Highlight the bottom of the three boxes and copy.

2b. Adding Image to Signature
First you must get to your profile, which is shown how from the previous tutorial. Then you must click on 'Edit Signature' which is located to the left hand side.



Then to insert an image to your signature, first you must upload your picture to a server. I would suggest Photobucket. To do that, when you're logged into Photobucket, click on the browse button next to the little white box. Find the picture on your computer, then click upload.

When your image is done uploading onto photobucket, there are three little boxes under neath your image that you just recently uploaded. Highlight the bottom of the three boxes and copy.



Then paste it into your signature box.

Remember, keep your signature image to a small size. No one wants to see your signature all over the screen.

You could add text instead of a picture, or you could combine a picture with words.



2c. Sending a Private Message
First you must get to your profile which is explained how in tutorial 2a. Next you click on 'Send a Private Message' which is located on the left hand side.

3d. Lyrics Request
Plyrics.com is the place you look for lyrics. But you do not ask for lyrics here in the General Discussion Forum. The General Discussion Forum is to discuss bands, songs, music genres, and everything else but lyric requests/corrections.

If you're looking for lyrics, or trying to find a song from a lyric, please refer to the Lyrics Request Forum.

This is the General Discussion Forum, and if you do ask for lyrics here I will delete it. here.



3e. Search
Search is a very, very, very useful tool. Before you ask anything, please search. Alot of people are sick and tired of the same kind of thread appearing. To find the search tool, it's located near the top of the general discussion forum.



3f. Registrating To The Forum
The only privilege you have as an unregistrated user, is to read threads. To even respond to a thread you must sign up to the forum. To do that you first need to click 'Log In' which is located near the top of the front page of the general discussion forum.

Then you click 'Not Registered? Click here to register now.' which is located in the first tan box.



3f. Audioscrobbler/Last.FM/Gerpok Last Played Signature
If you want a signature that shows what you last played, visit Last.FM (Ex-Audioscrobbler) or Gerpok. Your choice, but I prefer gerpok. Sign up on either site, and install the plug-in for your media player, whether it be Itunes, or WinAmp. But it supports most media players. Play a track and test it out. The song should appear in your music profile on the Last.FM site or Gerpok.

If you chose Gerpok, make sure that you're signed in. On the left hand side panel there should be a link that says "Image Control Panel." Click on it. Customize your image, and copy the Image URL and using the forum code, paste the code in your signature.

If you chose Last.FM (Ex-Audioscrobbler), paste this code in your signature, and instead of using your image url use this:
http : // www.denness.net/scrobblersig/username/yourusernamehere

make sure you replace the ones that are bolded, with your username, and remove the spaces.

If you have any questions make sure to message me.



If you have any questions, please send me a message and I will try to help you.
