How do I create a new thread?
In order to create a new thread, just go to the forum that you want to create a new thread in and click the "new thread" button on the upper left hand side. A picture is shown below with the button circled.



How do I change my thread title?
It's actually very easy once you know how!

Go into the thread listing and look at your thread, with all the other threads.

Now, double-click in your title "cell" (near the title) but not on the title, as that will open up the thread. The title should "open up" and you can type in the new title. Once you're done, just click outside of where you typed, and you are all set!

Here are some pictures to demonstrate the words

Where to click


How it looks when you change the title

How do I take screenshots / post pictures?
Quick & Simple for Windows --
cntrl+print screen
click start
all programs
accessories
paint, edit, paste save as jpeg, bmp is too big

More In-Depth If you are on Windows, to learn to take screenshots and post pictures on WebkinzInsider Forums, please visit Webkinzlover525's great guide!

If you are on a Mac, find something you want to take a picture of, then press "Shift+Apple+4" You will see your mouse pointer turn into crosshairs. Click on the upper-left corner of what you want to take a picture of, and drag a box around it. You will hear a camera sound and the screenshot will appear on your desktop as "Picture 1" . Then, just upload it to WI, with the instructions below, as it is already in .PNG format!

If you have images that are already in .GIF, .JPG or .PNG format, you can upload them directly to WI so that they will appear at the bottom of your message with the "zoom" function. In order to do this, just make your reply or new topic, and below the typing window, click "manage attachments" and upload your images!

How do I report a post?
Reporting a post

vBulletin has a great way to report posts and bring them to our attention. You've probably seen it a hundred times, but never really paid attention. It's the "red flag" below people's names on each post. If you see a post that doesn't follow the rules, click that red flag, fill out the reason and click send.

Here is a picture of the flag:


This will alert whatever mod or admin that is on and we can get to it as quickly as possible. This works much better than PM'ing a mod or admin, as anyone can pick up the "ticket" and get to work!

PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS FOR ANY OTHER REASON, IT IS ONLY FOR REPORTING POSTS THAT DON'T FOLLOW THE RULES!!

How do I create a poll?
YOU MAY ONLY CREATE POLLS IN THE "POLLS" SECTION

The system will not allow you to create polls outside of this section!

To create a poll, type in the message for your poll and then scroll down below that window and check "Yes, make this a poll" and then click "Submit". The website will then direct you to a page where you can create your poll options. Here is what it looks like:

Why Can't I PM or see the member list?
This is most likely because you are classified as "Lil Kinz" on the system, meaning you have less than 10 posts. Once you have crossed over the 10 posts barrier, you will be able to view and use all of these features!

What are the tags for images, signatures, smilies, links, etc on WI?
For a list of all the tags and how to use them to link your images, signature pictures, change your URLs to say "Click Here", etc, please read the following link which includes all of the codes available on the forum with examples on how to use them!

How do I become a Moderator?
Moderators oversee specific forums. They generally have the ability to edit and delete posts, move threads, and perform other manipulations. Becoming a moderator for a specific forum is usually rewarded to users who are particularly helpful and knowledgeable in the subject of the forum they are moderating. In order to be a moderator, you must be an adult. In addition, you have to be an active member of the community. The way we currently do it is, when a current moderator or administrator notices someone they think is a potential candidate, they are nominated and watched for a period of time. When everyone agrees, we give them "the tap" and offer them a position. They are not required to take it, it is up to them!
