Forum Tips and Tricks

by Leviathan, The Midwest, Thursday, February 07, 2013, 11:26 (3053 days ago)

General guidelines to improve your forum livelihood

  • Don't post or link to leaked content.

  • Try to remember tags like *SP* (for spoilers) and *IMG* (for images that might slow down someone's pageload). If you really must post something off-topic remember *OT* or *sOT* (for sort-of off-topic) in your title.

  • Got some news or found a new trick? If you're not glued to DBO day and night, why not use the search functions around the site to make sure it's not already old news?

  • Don't feed trolls. They'll always be around, but let's try and keep them under the bridges where they belong.

  • Be optimistic, open-minded, and friendly or we will kick your ass. Seriously though, this is the internet. There are no longer a thousand visual or audio cues helping with your communications like in real life, so try to be clear with your tone and attitude.

  • No whining or negative nancys until at least the second sequel! Critiquing isn't bad, just the opposite actually, but why not keep it constructive? Remember why you're here: you probably love something about Bungie or Destiny!

  • If you're new to Bungie.Org, forums, or would like to see some more accepted guidelines, read Red Loser's Anti-Spamming Guide. This is Bungie.Org 101 right here!

Hints for the Grizzled HBOers

  • Html is no longer your friend - remember to use the formatting tools to the right to help you fancy up your posts.

  • When linking, be sure to include "http://" or else it will think you're directing it towards somewhere on Destiny.Bungie.Org

  • There are no *NM* posts with this forum format.

EDIT: fine, you win. I guess no inviso-text for me.

    So, is there any formatting other than the buttons on the right, or is just bold, italic, color and size?

    Wohuu... new and shiny, slick look, and less freedom :o the dystopian future is now!

    Jesting aside, nice to see threaded view still existing, I think... :P

    [edit] Oh, and editing? Might have to retract that first comment! Though one freedom is exchanged for another.

    If I subscribe to receive notification of replies, how can I unsubscribe? I don't see any option, and now I am receiving a lot of emails I'd rather not…

    This is a good question. I'll keep my eye open and, if he doesn't see this post when he returns from his pilgrimage, ask the wise one.

    Additional notes:

    Email notifications should really only be sent for replies to your own posts, not (for example) to any post in a given thread you just happened to start. Also, there is no need to notify oneself of a reply you yourself posted.

    Being able to see who (if anyone) has replied to your posts is a valuable feature, but it would be far more useful if it were integral to the forum itself rather than sent via email — upon visiting the site I could hit a ‘replies’ link and be shown threads which contain replies to things I've written that I've not yet read. Of course, I'm aware such functionality is non-trivial and probably not something MLF already provides.

    I just noticed your profile has a percentage of posts you have made on the forum.

    Postings: 128 (4.5%)

    This will probably make me post less on here knowing someone is keeping track of how much I post... Haha

    125 (4.4%) here. But the scary number is the Logins per day. I'm keeping that one classified…

    Don't forget the maintenance of the highest order of class while selling it.
