Any questions? (New FAQ thread)

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

Am working on a FAQ to replace the v. old one (http://www.ilxor.com/faq.html), and need a list of new questions. Have started a short list (below). Anything else?

1. Can I change a poll date?
2 Can I delete my old posts?
2b. Can you erase a post if I accidentally type something that can get me fired?
2c Can you erase a thread if I said something two months ago that might make my brother pissed at me?
3. What can get you banned?
4. How does SB work?
5. What is a sock?
6. Can I have a board/be a mod?
7. What is 77 and can I be on it?

i've sort of been wondering what exactly 1p3 and ANDSFBaPB are uh for, i guess. and for that matter i'm still not clear on what exactly a 'noise dude' is.

, Monday, 3 May 2010 17:53 (eight years ago) Permalink

don't know if more comprehensive board explanations/descriptions would actually make anything about 1p3 and all noise dude any clearer, and i'm not sure they should be. one suggestion i'd make is making the faq easier to find, perhaps emailing a link to it when you register? i had been posting here for six months before i found the old one.

5. What is a sock?

LOL!

Aerosol, Monday, 3 May 2010 18:53 (eight years ago) Permalink

1p3 is about animal photos & abbreviations & diff varieties of sandwiches

i still have no idea what's going on in most of the subboards

Some kind of question about the kinds of behaviour/comments etc that tend to get frowned on/SBed on?

i have the same questions. i kind of figured that the ANDSFBaPB was for NY ilx'ors, but that's purely a guess.

Maybe expand the abbreviations list? OPO/POO/POX, C/D, S/D, OTM, xpost, FAP, TS, ITT, WDYLL, WKIW, etc?

i agree

For Noise and 1p3 and ITR and Cape, etc, it might be fun to have it broken down into "sitewide mods' definition" and "board mods' definition".

its a spillover from the original Neti Pot user forums that we inherited during one of the board moves.

i mean, "noise dude" can be someone who listens to noise music, but it looks like ILX has a more specific definition

okay

are your poll votes kept confidential? can mods see what you voted for in polls? how often can you vote in polls? are there polls on the moon?

going non-native (dyao), Tuesday, 4 May 2010 00:22 (eight years ago) Permalink

and on that note, why is it that after you vote on a poll and the page reloads the poll is still there the same as it was? can you vote more than once?

Once, I was a rebel and I tried to vote twice. I'll never forget what happened...

four weeks pass...

where does the thing of using tildes as somewhere between scare quotes and emphasis come from (e.g. here on US POLITICS: underrated supreme court decisions that i have read )? i don't think i've seen this before ilx.

it just reminds me of the phantom ambulance from the first Season of Von Trier's "The Kingdom" - the ambulance just sits there at the same time every night, and no one gets out - that thread, and several others, are always on most read threads around the same time of day and there are no new posts.

What does it mean when a user has been yellow carded?

van smack, Sunday, 13 June 2010 01:52 (eight years ago) Permalink

i am also curious about the yellow card phenomenon!

emphasis of words like ~this~ comes from 4chan iirc (i have encountered it elsewhere on the internet, also occasionally in a ~*variant form*~ for when you want to be super obnoxious)

I'm assuming it was a self-requested thing, tbh, so maybe it's not a public deal or w/e.

not sure it's worth putting in the faq tbh

not if it's something blueski requested, imo sarahel.
