Things you will come across when you 'add reply'.How to Quote
If you want to quote another member, simply click the "QUOTE
" button located at the bottom of this member's post. If the text you are quoting is a huge paragrgraph DO NOT quote all of it, just the portion you're responding to. Similarly, DO NOT create a quote pyramid; this is when you are quoting several other quotes.
To do this manually, simply type:
[quote]I am quoting![/quote]
This will look like:
I am quoting!
Or if you are quoting from an off site source or person and wish to cite the news within a quote with a name included, simply type:
[quote name="The Powers That Be"]Today Pierrot has been handed the task of creating this guide...run for your lives![/quote]
This will look like:
QUOTE (The Powers That Be)
Today Pierrot has been handed the task of creating this guide...run for your lives! Using spoiler tags
We obviously don't want to go spoiling the story for everyone as there can be newer members who have recently started watching the anime or reading the manga. We therefore use spoiler tags to hide potential spoilers from members who have not caught up on crucial points within the plot.
To do this, simply:
[spoiler] Boo! I'm a spoiler, here to spoil you! [/spoiler]
This will then look like: Boo! I'm a spoiler, here to spoil you!
Simply select and drag to see what is underneath!
Also, I feel it appropriate to mention is there is still a light spoiler ban regrading the end of the FullMetal Alchemist Manga. You must not post spoilers outside of the FullMetal Alchemist forums. If you do include spoilers in the designated threads, USE SPOILER TAGS
and mention before them (Chapter 108/end of series spoilers ahead!)
. This will save people who do not know the ending from unwittingly getting spoiled.Adding Attachments to your post
It took me an age to figure out how to do this, so I'm sure there'll be people out there, like me, who will appreciate this!
When you click, 'add reply' you will see this box on the right hand corner:

Click and select it, it will then appear in your post.How to Send a Personal Message (PM)
If you would like to send a PM, it's simple! You may think this is something that everyone knows, but I know that when I first stumbled on the World Wide Web, I wasn't very forum savvy; heck, didn't even know that PMs existed.
Simply click on the little downwards arrow located near the username and you should then see a list:
(This list can also be seen if you were to click onto the user's profile.)
Simply click on SEND MESSAGE
and this will take you to your messenger, where you will be able to type your message. After typing, simply click SEND
