Arrow {Guide To} Things you might not know how to do on WI!

I made this guide using my own experiences. Most of this stuff I didn't learn until a few months after I joined...

So, here it goes!

Contents:
  1. Friend Symbols
  2. Reputation Levels
  3. Top Poster
  4. WI Member #
  5. Time Conversions
  6. Birthdays
  7. Calender
  8. Disabling Rep.
  9. Editing the Words under your Username
  10. Abbreviations
  11. Did I post on this thread?
  12. Reputation Points Recieved
  13. WI Bucks {WI$}
  14. Clickable Links


1. Friend Symbols:


Scroll down, down, down on the Forum page and you should see something like this:

Click the image to open in full size.

Now, what the heck do those "+'s" mean? It means that that person is on your friend list!

2. Reputation Levels

If you take your mouse and hold it over your Reputation boxes for a few seconds, this is what should happen:

Click the image to open in full size.

It is based on how much rep/rep boxes you have.

Here are the levels in order:
-...is an unknown quantity at this point.
-...is on a distinguished road.
-...will become famous soon enough.
-...has a spectacular aura about.
-...is a jewel in the rough.
-...is just really nice.
-...is a glorious beacon of light.
-...is a name known to all.
-...is a splendid one to behold.
-...has much to be proud of.
-...has a brilliant future.
-...has a reputation beyond repute. (as far as I know, this is the highest one)

3. Top Poster

The term "TP" (top poster) is usually used on the DCT and it means who has the most posts on a thread.

To find out, just click on the # of posts a thread has and a little list should pop out like this:

Click the image to open in full size.

Note: I hear that this sometimes doesn't work if you use Internet Explorer.

4. WI Member Number

For this all you have to do is go to your profile, then take a look at the url up in the address bar. For example, here is mine: www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/members/dotdotduck-101141/

Take the number from the end and subtract 2374 (Justin's number, he was the 1st WI member)

Ta da! You got your member number! *Thanks FIA *

5. Time Conversions

Do you live and the West Coast and aren't sure at what time Arte will have a rare?

All you have to do is be at the Forum's front page and hold your mouse over the time/s on the Curio Shop chart like this:

Click the image to open in full size.

6. Birthdays

Scroll down to the bottom, past all the currently active members at site statistics. You should see this:
Click the image to open in full size.

Its a new feature that Justin added just recently! (June 17th, I think...)
Now you can wish EVERYONE a Happy Birthday!

7. Calender

Again, like in section 6, you will need to scroll down.
Until you get to this:

Click the image to open in full size.

It show's Today's Events that WI members have added.
How did they do this? Just click the little Calender button and it should take you to a HUGE calender. Scroll down and there should be an option on the right side to add your own events!

8. Disabling Rep.

If someone, for whatever reason doesn't want to show their Rep boxes, they can choose to disable it.

To do so, follow these steps:
-go to "Quick Links" (at the top towards the right)
-click on "Edit Options"
-the 2nd option there should say "Show Your Reputation Level"
-un-check that box next to it
-scroll down and hit "Save"

When you post, instead of your Rep. box/es coming up, it'll come up as a single black box and you/others won't be able to see your Rep. Level (see #1)

9. Editing the Words Under Your Username

Ever wondered how to get those words there? (not the Gift Guru part)

Click the image to open in full size.

You have to go to "Quick Links", again, "Edit Your Details", scroll down till you see the , type your message (mine is Adam is still my... {Gift Guru}) scroll down, and hit "Save".


There you have it!

10. Abbreviations

Have you ever seen someone use abbreviations like "DD", "PLMK", ect...?

Well, here is a link to an awesome Dictionary made by LilyRose, that features those, and MANY more! ---> ♥ Webkinz Insider Dictionary (with Abbreviations and Helpful Links!) 125+ Definitions/Abbreviations & Counting! Have you always what wanted to know what BUMP or DD was? They are both in the guide along with SOOO many more! ♥


11. Did I post on this thread?

Have you ever gone to a thread and forget if you posted on it already? Well, there's a way to find out without looking through all the posts!

If you see that symbol (with the red box around it), it means that you've already posted there.

Click the image to open in full size.


12. Reputation Points Received

Wondered how to see rep. points that others have given you?
Just click on "User CP" towards the top-right then on "User CP Home"
There you should see a list with the last 10 reps that people have given you.

13. WI Bucks {WI$}

On the left-hand side, under "User CP" and "Welcome, username" you should see something like: "WI Bucks: [100,000]" That is how many WI$ you have. You earn more by posting, voting on polls, receiving rep, rating threads, ect. The higher your status is, the more you receive. For example, a Gift Guru would earn more than a Webkinz. What are WI$ used for? For now, we can only give/receive them, but someday in the future we will be able to purchase avatars {called "Living Avatars"}, join contests, and lots of other things!
Here is a link to a guide about WI$ bucks that Miss Gnomie made --->
http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/f165/webkinz-insider-bucks-what-they-how-479553/

14. Clickable Links

Seen someone have "Click HERE for my Graphics Shop" in their siggy and when you clicked "HERE" it took you to the thread? Here is how to do that:

-Copy the URL link from the thread.
-Go to edit your signature. (or, when you're making a post, click "Go Advanced"
-Click the green/blue globe button.
-Paste the URL link into there.
-Click "Ok"





So, there's my guide! Hope you found it helpful and I will be adding on to it!
