FAQ

Postby Emperor's Prize » Tue Dec 11, 2012 2:42 am

This a thread for various sitewide policies and setup and will be updated as needed.

Avatars
You may now upload your own avatars for use on Phat.
    - Avatars must be within 150x150px
    - Avatars must be less than 150 kb
    - Avatars must conform to Phatooine ToS
    - Avatars cannot be animated
    - All avatars are subject to Phat review (basically a clause allowing us to nix avatars that otherwise conform to the above parameters ... but are too stupid to remain - and yes, we get to decide what is "stupid").

Ranks
Ranks are assigned based on numbers of posts as follows:
    0 - Scum / Youngling / Clone
    50 - Thief / Padawan / Clonetrooper
    200 - Scoundrel / Jedi Apprentice / ARC Trooper
    500 - Smuggler / Jedi Knight / Stormtrooper
    1000 - Pirate / Jedi Master / TIE Fighter Pilot
    2000 - Captain / Jedi General / Captain
    4000 - Commodore / Jedi Council / Admiral
    8000 - Boss / Master of the Order / Grand Admiral
    16000 - Viceroy / Grand Master / Grand Moff
    32000 - Crime Lord / Chosen One / Emperor

The first set of ranks (Scum, Thief, Scoundrel, etc.) is default. The second (Youngling, Padawan, Jedi Apprentice, etc.) and third set are (Clone, Clonetrooper, ARC Trooper, etc.) optional and you may request them by PMing Phatooine admin for the change (so long as you ask nicely, and provide some measure of compensation - preferably alcoholic, although "please" and "thank you" have been known to work, too).

I know there's the whole clean reboot angle to consider but is there any chance oldbies can have their title's back? (devoid of Former Admin/Staff and all that stuff obviously)

One of the things we needed to clean up was the whole list of titles. There were too many of them and they were too unwieldy (trying to figure out who belonged to what in the admin screen). A plan is currently in discussion that may, potentially, allow members to select a title, as a benefit for their support of Phat. But the parameters haven't been hashed out just yet so we're going with the simplest way forward to start with.

I can live without my titles :) (especially given that in 180 posts, I'll be a scoundrel!)

You can use the Attach feature that's on the Post Reply page when you're posting in a thread or you can link to a picture that's hosted on another site by copying the link and then pasting the link between the image tags.

Newfangled tech ... complicating the age-old act of posting on a message board ... :p

Perhaps this belongs in a glitch thread: My cat, Shadow, tried to register an account last night, but couldn't complete the registration process because the confirmation image was not displaying. She tried in both Firefox and Internet Explorer.

Scarlet would be correct. The image isn't displaying on the registration page for hBWinter.

Your kitty should be able to register now. We changed the default theme until we can update it.

She will be thrilled, thank you! She was enraged last night when I came home smelling like pitbull, and wanted to see if the Fredward was registered here.

I'm within the interval of 0-50 posts.

I wonder if there's a way to change "Scum" into "Youngling" or "Clone"? :p

Or ..

Does it automatically change for you when post-count raise?
