    I have a question...

    Q: What if we would like to recruit our players here, and play on another BBoard? How does EnWorld feel about that?

    In general it's suggested to use the Players seeking Players forum for that.
    http://www.enworld.org/forumdisplay.php?f=49

    Create a post detailing your game and mark it as Play by Post.

    It does happen here from time to time, and nobody gets burned at the stake, but in general this forum is for ENWorld games.

    Questions

    Hi, I have a couple questions:

    1.) How do i go about changing the name of my thread i see that it can be done people editing them to say closed or full i would like to do that with my threads and who do i see about deleteing a thread after i'm done with it?

    2.) Would like to learn how to hide info in the little boxes in post i believe that could come in handy.

    3.) I see people taking links and changing how they appear on the posts like they will make the link look like IC or OOC and you can click on those to go to the thread would like to know that as well.

    That's all for now wish me luck as i finally start in my first pbp adventure.

    No "tech-manual" that I've ever found. But here are your answers:


    1. to change the name of a thread: go to the first post of a thread that you've created, and then edit that post #1. Once the edit screen comes up, press edit a SECOND TIME! When you do so, you will see that you have the option to edit the thread title.

    2. hidden text: These are what we call "sblocks," short for "spoiler blocks". Now, obviously, I can't show you how to do this exactly, because the text of my peplanation would be hidden as well. So, I'm going to stick an extra asterisk in the code. Remember to omit the asterisks when you actually do this.
    [*sblock=the title of the hidden text]the hidden text itself[/sblock]

    2A. In the future, if you see some text or effect in a post that you wish to replicate in your own posts, the way to see the code used to create the text/effect is to QUOTE the message in a reply. You don't have to actually POST the reply, just act like you are going to do so to see the code, and the use the back button. (Unless you actually want to reply that is...)

    3. altering link text: Ok, this one is a bit more tricky, and involves quite a bit of typing. I know it can be done, and I've seen how to do it, but, for me personally, it's just not worth the hassle, so I have hardly ever done it. But, find the effect you're looking to learn, QUOTE the message in a reply post, and you'll instantly see how it's done, just like I said above.

    All better now?
