Mhm, maybe the list isn't correctly. I need to check that.
Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but since it's a FAQ I'll give it a go. How come I can't Edit my posts or quote another member's post? I remember being able to do it my first day here, then after that the options vanished. Is it because I'm a new member?
Ups, I just realised that I haven't posted what I've found out at the day I did my last post in here. Shortly: Nothing. I think it's a mistake, so I need to fix the first page.
@Smile_youS.O.B, this isn't exactly a FAQ. It's more about special stuff of the boards. But nevertheless... you should be able to edit your own posts as long as you're within your edittime, which is usually between 30 and 90 minutes depending on the board you posted. Are you within your edit time? If you're not sure, feel free to do a test post at [link=[url]http://boards.theforce.net/threads/practice-markup-codes.5092339/]practice[/url] MUC[/link]. Quoting another user should work always. How did you do it? What browser are you using?
Ok, I didn't realize there was a time limit for editing posts. That explains it.
As for quoting, not sure if it's different here but on most forums you can quote a person's post. So far I've had to do it manually. I'm using the most updated IE
Great. First problem solved!
Quoting works here as well. You can see the word 'Reply' on the right side of each post. You need to click that one and the post gets copied into the quick-reply-field. Hitting the 'Reply' button of various posts or multiple times will copy all of those posts into the quick-reply-field. Try it! Best place for testing would be the Practice MUC thread linked above.
Dumb question. How do I quote another post in my post? I hit reply, but that didnt' result in the other post appearing in my post. Thanks.
I suspect you are using Internet Exploder 11. There is a known issue with that "browser" that prevents quoting from working correctly. The workaround is to use a real browser like Firefox or Chrome (though Firefox has its own issues with editing, but that can be solved by simply opening the edit window in a new tab).
Thanks for the help.
I have 200 posts
Sorry guys, I just had to I hope that works! Or is there a different way to get the Liar trophy?
we need new ranks for 1000 and 2500 points.
What are the jedi_something and darth_something trophies about?
If you have a username starting with Jedi or Darth you get a trophy(point).
I have 61 trophy points and I'm still listed as Jedi Padawan?
The trophy system was reworked. There's a thread in Comms [link=[url]http://boards.theforce.net/threads/jedi-status-rank-why-did-everyone-go-down.50040200/]here[/link][/url].
What if you had both?
I'm having trouble finding the search tool/button I'm sure it's really obvious and probably like me looking for my keys when I'm actually holding them or something like that...
Welcome to the boards! Unfortunately, the tool that we were using as a search feature was causing an unusual load on the site's server, so it was disabled while the administration works on getting something else up and running. You can find further information here.
Well even though I've been on this site for two years i still don't know how to get this trophy
This Is Not Facebook
I want to know what the requirements are.
Like any post, and you earn the trophy.
Weird...I've liked many posts, but I have never gotten the trophy.
Good question! Needs to be tested.
You really need to like a lot. Like almost just liking and never posting. Let me say it in a different way, your postcount is so high that I don't think you will ever get that trophy. If you like to test when you get it, make a new account (but don't start spamming around with likes and choose wisely what you like).
I swear I got it after I liked one post.
Weird! But maybe the requirements got changed after you earned that trophy...?
