    Welcome to the boards!

    First and foremost, for Fan Fiction, you'll want to go to the Fan Fiction Forum: Fan Fiction and click on the link for Fan Fiction FAQ (frequently asked questions).

    That should tell you everything you need to get started... good luck!

    uh...[face_blush] what's with all the e-sisters, brothers, mothers, fathers, etc. is it a code?

    It's a sign of a deeper relationship between the members. Correct me if I am wrong... I haven't got any, yet.

    Faith is right. :)

    These e-relationships show some kind of friendship or how they feel for each other. There's no way to say how you can get one. It goes its own ways and "suddenly" you got an e-sister or so. ;)

    I hope this answers your question, but if not, ask again, ok? :)

    thanks, that works

    can you ask other members answers to Teh Mole questions?

    You can submit icons/avatars here.

    You can ask but they may not know the answer or they may purposly give you the incorrect answer. Don't discuss the questions on the boards with others or ask for answers on the boards though, do it via other means if you must. Some have PMed mods to get the answer which is perfectly alright. It is up to them though if they answer you or not. Whatever you do, do NOT harrass, insult or flame them or other users if they don't feel like answering you.

    I know you didn't ask but you can use google also but you will not always find things using it. I make sure of that. [face_devil]

    Do Mods or Admins have the ability to completely remove a thread? I could've sworn there was a really offensive thread about mentally handicapped people last night that I was highly upset about and posted as such in the thread. However this morning it appears to have disappeared from my post list and the JCC. Is this possible?

    You're right. Mods, Manager and Admins (and of course RSA's and GSA's) have the ability to remove posts and threads if necessary. Admins can even delete a whole board (but normally they don't do this).

    In your case I would bet that they deleted the thread, because it was highly inappropriate. Normally it is better to send a PM about such a thread that you get upset of than posting there. Just a little hint. ;) :)

    Thanks!! I normally don't get offended, but that one was just too much for me.

    I see, but still it is better to send a PM to a Mod, because those people often want a reaction like yours. So posting there satisfies them. Plus you can get in trouble as well if you post there (depending on what and how you post).

    I merely posted how offensive their post was and that I was highly disappointed that this was the community the mods fought so hard to protect during the Sports forum discussion. Then I said I couldn't wait until the Arena opened so I no longer had to read horribly offensive titles such as that one while trying to find the football thread. You're right though. I gave in to my anger and prolly gave them the reaction they wanted. Its tougher to fight off when their idea hits close to home.

    Although I haven't read your post, it doesn't sound too bad. :)

    So you're at the JC mostly because of sports? Then we'll read us more often in the Arena soon. ;) :D

    Yuppers!!! Basically the Football (american) thread, but I can't wait to try to get a horse discussion going in the arena.

    Horse discussion? How great! :D I wasn't sure if I should start one, but now... I think I'll do it (if no one else is faster of course ;) ). :D

    I got three e-sisters by saying that I wanted one. My first three e-sisters "volunteered for the position". I got all my other e-siblings by asking them if they wanted to be such.

    I'm a little late on this one, but I just wanted to add something to the dear Skiara's answer to the above questions from s65horsey.

    As Skiara said, yes they do. And if there is an offensive thread that might need such, they will get to ASAP. Sometimes, patience is a virtue. Even with numerous moderators, there are sometimes gaps here and there where a mod for that particular forum may not be on.

    Good job, s65horsey. Just remember, don't give in enough that you get yourself in trouble. Flaming or baiting, as well as 'modding' by a non-Moderator/Manager (ie "Lock this thread", "Ban so-and-so", etc) posts in threads could get you into trouble, just as "in before the lock" posts and such could. Your best course of action (and this is general info for everyone) is to contact a Moderator/Manager or Administrator and let them know about the thread, then let them do their job. They will either A) lock/delete/edit the thread, B) ban/warn the user that opened the thread or, C) explain why it does not violate the ToS and/or CoC to you.

    I assume from looking for the football threads it was JCC, a hive of scum and villainy on the boards (I should know, I was a JCC Manager). At the top of the JCC page, there is an 'Online?' option next to each of the forum Managers names. You can check that to see if one of them is online, and if there is not one there, you can also use the Users Online page to see who is available. Mods/Mngrs and Admins tend to stand out on the list, since it shows their colors. Even if it is not a moderator for that specific forum, they can still handle locking the thread, if nothing else, until one of the forums moderators is available to decide from there what course of action should be taken.

    I hope that helps with any possible future issues anyone might come across like this one. :)

    Thanks Kavic!!! I haven't had a good response from the JCC mods the last time something like this came up so I basically don't have faith in them. I don't think I realized another Mod could do something about it. I shall use this option in the future if something like this comes up again. So thank you!

    Edit: This was also during the Halloween thing I think and there wasn't an "online" option at the top with the Mods. They had disappeared.

    I love getting a PM to edit or remove something really bad because there's no mods online in the big forums. Makes me feel special!

    Um, how do you put the accent over the "e" in Padme? It is driving me nuts. I've lurked around the JC for months, and even once I got my username, still didn't know!

    Because there are different keyboards, it can be that my way doesn't work for you, but I'll explain it nevertheless:

    On the left side of the "back" button is another one with the symbols "´" and "`". You just have to hit that key and to press a letter afterwards. You won't see the symbol when you hit the button once, but you'll see it if you hit it twice or a letter.

    Hopefully this helps in some way. But I'm afraid that it won't because of the different keyboards.

    Or, if you're on Windows, hold Alt and hit 0233 and then let go of Alt. You'll get: é.

    I'm also on Windows but I use another way...
    I'm in french immersion so I always have to use the accents if I'm writing on the computer
    If I hold down ALT and press 130 then let go that'll give you an é as well!
    :D
    Now I'll know that I can use 0233 as well though...Thanks Tarzan [:D]
