    BitF Forum FAQ (includes BBCode information)

    Hello! You probably have a few questions about the forum. Hopefully I've covered your question in here, but if not then feel free to ask and I might even add it to the list.

    Note: Anything regarding rules or infractions is answered in this thread.

    In this first post I'll answer the all of the general questions. The next post covers all the posting tricks (such as how to make spoilerboxes or post pictures).

    Without further ado:


    Q: What is a VIP? What's a Veteran? Who are all these people?
    A: This is a pretty big question! There are several groups on the forum:

    Spoiler: Administrators 


    Spoiler: Moderators 


    Spoiler: Lords of the Arena 


    Spoiler: VIPs 


    Spoiler: Veterans 


    Q: How can I become a mod/veteran?
    A: Veterans are chosen. They are members who have proven themselves to be outstanding members of the community. For more details about them look in the "Veteran" spoilerbox above.

    Staff positions like mods and lords are chosen from the veterans when it's become clear that we need their help. We choose from veterans because anyone who fits the requirements to be a staff member also fits the requirements to be a veteran.

    We don't give everyone who deserves it a staff position. If we did we'd be very overstaffed. Once our workload becomes too much we pick the person who seems to be the best candidate.

    Please don't try to submit an application for veteran/mod/lord or tell us how much you deserve the position. Trust us, if you're really deserving then we've already noticed you. Besides, begging to get a position is a sure-fire way to not get it.

    Q: Who is the Grand High Snowman? Why does he have so many posts?
    A: The Grand High Snowman (GHS) is an account the forum staff made as part of a Christmas event (and no he doesn't actually have that many posts). Occasionally we still use the account for events.

    Q: Why isn't my post count going up?
    A: You're probably posting in the Fountain of Dreams or in Castle Lololo. We've decided that these two boards won't increase your post count. This is because post count should represent more substantial posts than posts in a forum game or a greeting.

    Q: Why does this person have a fancy name?
    A: Certain groups of users get special privileges for how they want their username to look. Veterans can choose between an assortment of colors for their name, and moderators can have images for their name (for example, my username).

    Q: How do you get an image in your user title (that thing above your avatar)?
    A: It's possible for a person to have images in their user title if html is used, but normal members can't use html because of security concerns (it's possible to do malicious things with html). Moderators have the ability to put html in someone's user title, but we only do it for vets and special occasions (like we could give you a medal if you win some forum event or something). We don't let everyone request it because we don't want to be swamped with requests.

    Re: BitF Forum FAQ (includes BBCode information)

    Rebel has resigned from being a mod.

    Rebel was one of the first mods on the forum (the other being Eltro). He's been a moderator ever since the beginning, but his activity has fallen and he's decided that it's best if he steps down. He has become a Forum VIP.

    So thank you Rebel for the time and effort you volunteered to make this forum a better place.

    (Though just to be clear, we are not choosing another mod to replace Rebel)
