General Tips & Tricks

This is basically a variety of information that you may find helpful when using the site:

Posting

Eventlog Notices

To notify a member of your post & provide a link to said members profile in a post, you can use two percentage signs around their name -- this will create a link and send them an eventlog.

Example:

%%PersonsNameGoesHere%%

Images

Thumbnailing large images can't be done with the default markup so you must use the HTML code to create images.

350px Wide Example:

<img src="URLTOIMAGE" width="350px" />

Code? Compile Logs?

Posting Compile logs (For maps, skins etc) can be troublesome to view when lines wrap, to avoid that you need to use pre tags around the text.

Example:

<pre>Compile Log Here</pre>

CSA Ratings

You are able to remove Unjustified ratings (meaning they did not post a message with their rating). Simply check the box beside the rating(s) you wish to remove and then click "Remove Rating(s)."

Profile

uPic

Why won't my uPic center with my avatar/why is there extra un-wanted space? The solution is very simple, remove the extra space on either side of your image.

Submissions

Writing your own Terms & Conditions can be tiresome, to help with that you can use this wonderful generator to quickly create a legal notice on what people can and cannot do with your work. Creative Commons. Just note you will need to remove some elements from the generated code to be acceptable on GameBanana forms (style attribute on the image).
