Default Personal Avatar, Ranks, Signature, Image FAQs

I've a few questions: What do you do once you've donated? I'd like to pick my own avatar now, and am perhaps interested in changing my forum name if that's not impossible.

Just contact the Onkel. Or post in this thread. Be sure to tell him some details of your donation so he can verify it is indeed you who donated.

And YES, the uncle can change forum names as well.

Well, since I've posted here, I'll just wait and hope they contact me.

Is Onkel a username? Or am I in left field?

Just tell him how and when you made your donation, and include the avatar you want. Be sure not to make the avatar too big !

Knew of Neal by name and reputation, (who here doesn't? lol), but never heard him refered to as Onkel. Of course, I've only been here just over a month.

You've shamed me.

Thanks Drebbel for the info!

Lol, your avatar is active!

Thanks for supporting the website. If we didn not ask for a donation to make special avatars, I would have 20 people a day asking me to change them (some probably several times).

Why a donation? Why standard avatars? Well, in short because...

This forum uses a system-default ranking and avatar scheme, which means the ranks are set and avatars are bestowed according to rank. Why? It's easier, cleaner, and looks more uniform than 15,000 assorted images, some of which would undoubtedly be weird, funky, or borderline porno. And since we are a naval-themed forum...we like doing things in a military manner.

This way, the "old hands" who have been around a while will have some distinction with nobler avatars and higher ranks. The "newbies" will start out with young sailor avatars and work their way up to the more warlike, martial visages. Along the way, a user may get a "shore leave" rank or something similar, as well as having to work their way through some "unpleasant duty" ranks. Eventually, you too may be a Commander or an Ace of the Deep.

From time to time, Special Ranks are given to users who perform some extra duties, such as making really useful mods, taking an assignment such as writing a game or book review, or posting a string of exceptionally witty or interesting posts.

For a small donation to the website, you can get a special rank and your own avatar.




The donation is helpful, needed, and it gives special rank some meaning: you're not just another sailor here, you're a supporter.

Thanks!

One very satisfied customer here - thanks Neal.

You've seen that link at the top right ' Support Subsim. Com ' give it a whirl.
Where would we be without this fantastic site ?

Motto is - 'You look after them and they'll look after you !!'

Maybe there will be a competition soon for the funniest support avatar..... Can you beat the "Penguin Slapper' ?
Lets see some originality out there. Bang in some bucks and Neal will see you right.

Avatar...signature...what's it all mean??



Signature: you can add this in your Profile:
http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/usercp.php

Avatar, that's determined by your rank and forum activity, deeds, etc. To get a custom avatar, make a donation to the website

To make a small donation to the website,


You can upload your signature pic here, and the go to the UserCP, add it as a sig.

Just click the icon and add the image URL. That should do it.



Thanks!
Neal

Default This forum does have a Spell Checker

Seems that many people are unware that this new forum also have a spellchecker.







I never use it because a few typos here and there do not bother me

But some people even write their post in Word, spellcheck it, and then post it :rotfl: for those people this might be a good feature.

It is not integrated in the forum software, you need to manually download and install it. After installation it then is present in the tool bar of IE, generally - not just in the forum software.

It checks for American English by default, but in the options you can switch to British and Canadian English as well.

Make sure that Javascript/Active Scripting is enabled (Internet Options, Security Tab, click Custom Level) and that your firewall doesn´t block it. Go to this website to test Javascript:

If the lower clock shows 00:00:00 Javascript doesn´t work.

Default RSS Feed

Hello,
Was wondering if the new RSS feeds have been activated? I've tried all the addresses in the FAQ, and none seem to be working. In fact, Yahoo says that there's nothing contained in the one you guys have setup specifically for it. Seems that the old RSS feed is still up and running though.

Thanks
