You also have the option to make your polls open to the public, or only users who are logged in. Polls are public by default. To restrict them to logged in users only, add the word "closed" in the top bracket, like this:

_______________________________________________________________


Links and Images:

*Note* - *You must have 25 posts to post links and images!*
Linking your account or verifying your email address will bypass these posting restrictions

Links:
Posting a url will convert it into a clickable link automatically.

To make links with custom text like this, use this code:

[url=http://www.url.com]text[/url]


Images:
Host your image on a site like imgur or tinypic. If you hot-link images from other sites they might not show up.

Then you need a url or link for your image that ends in a standard image format, such as .jpg, .gif, or .png, like this:

https://i.imgur.com/G5gfdwJ.gif

This creates a clickable link so that people may view the image directly by clicking on it.

If you want to embed the image into the post, enclose the link in image tags:



You can do this several ways. You can type the codes yourself, or you can use the 'Image' button. I usually copy and paste the image url, highlight the link with the mouse, and then hit the Image button, which encloses it in image tags. You can also start by hitting the 'Image' button, which inserts the tags, and then copy and paste the direct link to the picture between the tags.

ta da!



_______________________________________________________________


Youtube Videos:

Copy and paste a url to a youtube video into a post, and it will display automatically for users who have set their user settings to display videos.

If you want to skip ahead to a specific part in a video, you must go there and hit pause, then right-click and select "Copy video URL at current time", then paste the link, like this:





The ?t=80 code means the video will begin playing at the 1:20 mark, or 80 seconds in.

Mp4 vids:

Permalinks:
The blue chain link symbol is the permalink to specific posts.



Just right-click, copy, and paste:

Lost Passwords:

You can recover your password if you signed up with an e-mail address. The passwords here are encrypted, but there is a way for an administrator to recover lost accounts with forgotten passwords and no e-mail address, or a bad e-mail you can't access, and even imposter accounts stolen by trolls, as long as you can prove your identity. It is an annoying process, so don't abuse it! All you need is the link to the account, and a new account to PM nimda for help.

_____________________________________________________________



Rules (subject to change):

No doxxing. Posting any user's or potential user's personal information that could be considered compromising, without their consent is not allowed. This includes any pictures, names, locations, health and legal issues, and references to family members that implies intimate knowledge, or any links that provide access to this information. Violating this rule will result in a link ban, and depending on circumstances, your account may also be banned for an indefinite time period. Note: consent may be implied if a user has posted their own information previously, but the user has the right to revoke this consent at any time.

No pornographic content featuring nudity. If you post pornography, your post will be deleted. If you continue to do so, you will receive a link ban. Artistic and educational media, such as those found in film and television, would not classify as pornography. Images or video that are sexual in nature but do not feature nudity are usually allowed. Material that is excessively vulgar may be considered pornographic and is subject to removal.

No spamming. A link ban will result. If the spam continues, a temporary account ban will be issued. Spam is any content that is deemed universally undesirable. Activities qualifying as spam are: repeatedly posting the same message; flooding the board; posting off topic content in communities that don't welcome it; continuously bumping old threads without providing anything useful, or just bumping too many; advertisements; spoilers; whining.

No threats to do harm. Threats to do any of the above are against the rules, such as posting a users personal information, posting pornography, etc, and will receive the same punishments. Serious threats of violence or death are also not allowed, whether directed at members of this board or anyone off of it.

All of the rules above apply to both on the boards and in private messages. They are guidelines to be followed, however enforcement depends on the circumstances of each individual case. Punishments for violations are left to the discretion of the moderators and ultimately the administrators of the site.

Please remember that moderation on this website is very lax. If by chance you find one of your posts was deleted for reasons unknown to you, understand it's not a big deal and it's likely no one cares. Occasionally, a post may be removed even if it doesn't violate any of the stated rules, if it is found to be overly garbage.

Re: Film|Boards Information Center

Hi,

Is this message [Note: You must have at least 25 non-deleted posts before you can include links or images. You can still include Youtube videos.] displayed forever?

Because I have posted more than 25 posts but it still shows up for me everytime I open a reply window.

That said the admin of the site was very kind and had lifted my restriction of 25 post before I made even 7 posts. So I didn't have to wait for 25 posts to post links and pics. But that red thing always appears in my reply window.

Re: Film|Boards Information Center

Yes. This is because you are shadow-banned.

Re: Film|Boards Information Center

I really like this site. It's kind of the wild, wild west of film sites.

But I do have one small problem. In my profile I indicated that I would like to receive replies by both PM and email. So far I have received none of either, to the best of my knowledge.

What is the problem here? Am I doing something wrong? Thanks!
