I didn't want this to turn into a "how to" thread. Just a simple list of guidelines of big no-nos should suffice.

People shouldn't have to use or memorize complex sheets.

Question: I've noticed the new tag [NC]. Did I miss something or does this have anything to do with the Old/Reborn/New Galaxies?

My guess is "new creation" or "new creature".

EDIT: Apparently it stands for Novus Cluster.

So what are the prefixes now?

[OG] = Old Galaxy
[NG] = New Galaxy
[NC] = Novus Cluster

You forgot one thing...

People will pay more attention to your creature if you have a picture. Don't get annoyed if you post a wall of text and no one comments...
but I have a problem... I have a good picture (for me) in my documents, and It wont let me paste it. Do I need a website/need to commission? Because if yes... I have problems... :'( :(

Click "Browse", find the file you want to upload and then click "Upload Now". After it has uploaded, you will see links to the image you uploaded on the left. Copy the link that is labelled "Forum Code" and paste it into your post. You can remove the text that says "Uploaded with ImageShack.us" from your post.

Or, instead of copying the Forum Code link, you can copy the Direct Link and just add the image tags yourself.
Code: [Select]
[IMG]your link here[/IMG]
If you want to keep track of the pictures you've uploaded, I recommend you register and log in before uploading. If you want to register, there's also another very good image site you could use. http://photobucket.com/ Photobucket would be my first choice actually, but I thought I'd mention imageshack first because you can't upload to Photobucket without registering.

Oh yeah, and remember to make sure the file type is right before uploading. JPG, PNG, BMP and GIF files can be uploaded to most image sites. But for example, PSD files (Photoshop's default saving format) can't. But don't worry, you can change the format in an image editing program.

Hmm, strange. For me, the site looks like this after uploading:


I guess you could try Forum Hotlink?

Nothing is wrong with your computer. The URL is all you need. Copy that and paste it in the IMG tags that Great Distance shown you.

Code: [Select]
[img]paste it here[/img]
For future reference, right-click images you uploaded and  copy image location if you see the option. Or you can click properties and copy the URL from there.
