I always seem to be the one thinking of this thing :P (case in point, the LPU Issues FAQ) Anyway, if you have any questions on how to navigate the new site and/or forums, please feel free to post below. I will edit this first post as I see issues pop up with the answers to said issues :)
NOTE: I will be creating a new list of issues in a separate forum (going to be in the same format as the current LPU FAQ on LPU.com - a thread post for each issue) .. or ... maybe just creating a group and have each thread be it's own issue....... I will try to get it in place and decide for sure before ATS drops.
* What happened to the old forums?
The forums as we knew them on the old LPMB are no longer, as this platform does not have that function. All threads (now called "discussions" :P) are on the main Discussion page. Group specific discussions are in that groups main page. And we added categories just before the main launch to make things easier for all... please be sure to place new threads in the appropriate categories :)
* How are we going to create our Clans we had before?
You can do it one of two ways. Preferablly, just create the thread/discussion on the main page in the Front Lines category, just like before. Any updates to the thread/discussion will be listed on the left hand side of the main Community page. However, some clans may do better if you create a Group in the Groups page. To do this, just go to the main Group page and click Add A Group. Please note that if your group does not get any new activity for over 2 weeks, it will be deleted. Also, try to limit the number of duplicate groups, although we will not delete duplicate groups at this time as long as they stay active
* How do I add color or smilies or whatnot to the discussion/thread post?
This forum uses HTML tags to edit the posts. I will list some common tags that most people will most likely be using on this thread here Please note: if you want to add smilies, you will have to use the "img" tages and have active URLs for the image. (If you don't know where to go, try here :))
* What about my join date/post count? Again, that feature is not supported at this time on this site. We do appologize. If you really want to let others know your join date, you will have to manually add it in the posts.
**** MAJOR UPDATE TO THE FAQ COMING SOON!!!! ****
I do have one question..... are we able to creat signatures like before... I'm not noticing anything for it
I haven't seen anything. I think the customizable pages take the place of signatures.
