FAQ - add your own!

In this thread we will answer - as well as we can - all your questions concerning the the transfer, the new board, claiming your old chars etc.

But please read first what has already been asked and answered before you post your own question below!


- How do I claim my existing character/account?
The transfer from the ezBoard converted the posts and created all users, but the migration couldn't take care of the passwrods. Therefore, you need to claim your old account(s). Don't register again, but claim your old character back, if you have already done one.

To do so, send a mail to rpg(at)santharia(dot)com and you will receive an email with a temporary password. Log in and change that password to something you prefer. And here you are.

- What about my title? 
If your CD has already been approved before the board transfer, you can include your title in your email to the administration when claiming your account.  Alternatively, you can contact one of the admins about it after you have claimed your account. 

- Can I have two characters with the same e-mail address?
No, linked accounts are no longer possible, so you now need an extra e-mail for each character.

- Why can't I log in with my Dev password or the old RPG Board password?
The accounts on the RPG board and the Development board are separate. However, you could set both accounts to use the same password if you like.

Same with the new and the old RPG Board - while we transferred all data to the new board, we only could make accounts for the poster names, but don't have access to their passwords. Therefore you now need to claim your old character by contacting the admins.

- Where  is the old ezboard?
The old board can still be found here, should you need to go there for whatever reason. It will for sure exist until the end of the year 2006.

- What should I write under my name? 
For now, your character's race and tribe.  This is still under discussion, however. 

- Where can I upload my avatar?
You can upload it on our server.  Just send it to the rpg email address, but do notify Talia about it.  Alternatively, you could send it directly to talia(at)santharia(dot)com. 

- Do I also get a nifty golden frame around my character portrait? 
Yes, though it doesn't have top priority at the moment. When the admins have some time left they'll go mainly through the active characters and add the frame, working through them one after the other.

- Can I turn the little menu blocks to the left and right of the main text on or off? 
Yes, you can. See the claw icons on the top left and right. Click on them to turn the blocks below on or off.

- How do I add a signature to my posts? 
Go to your "Profile", then click on "Forum Profile Information". There you have a "Signature" textbox at the bottom. Put any text you wish to appear at the bottom of your posts, just make sure that it is BBC code compatible in case you need a specially formatted text, want to use another colour, add a picture or a link.

And what is BBC code I hear you ask? BBC code is the Forum text formatting code used when you make posts. If you click on a button shown above your post textbox, BBC code is put into the text area below. So in order to make a signature just go to the Testing Thread and put something together. It suffices to click on "Preview" to see the results. If you like what you did, paste that code into your signature textbox and "Save". Easy as that ;)

- Why do certain posts show the signature twice? 
The ezBoard import couldn't make a difference between post and signature and therefore imported the whole post including the signature. If you add a signature now to your profile, the signature will display twice at these older posts. This behaviour cannot be avoided.

- Why do older posts mess up when I edit them? 
In general it is advisable not to edit older posts. The import converted ezBoard posts to HTML, not to BBC code, which you use here at the Forum when posting. As long as these posts aren't touched, they will appear ok. This means however that if you edit an older posts and press "Save", the new board won't undertstand the HTML code anymore, as you can only post in the new BBC code mode. If you absolutely have to edit older posts, either copy the text and post it in a new thread (if applicable) or remove the HTML references before you press "Save".

None of my passwords are working.  I somehow managed to get three different passwords for two accounts, none of which work on any of them.  Could someone please look into this? The accounts are Hmmbe Uhm and Blaise Stormbringer.

That's odd.  I only see two passwords sent to you from the admin account.  I'll get a new password for Hmmbe and send it to you via PM.  

@Naya: You can't, at the moment.  I could change it for you though, if you want.

Also it is advisable to send e-mails either to rpg@santharia.com or to me personally or to talk to me through ICQ, MSN etc. - if you send mails to two addresses, they will interfere with each other and the result will be that your password won't work. Don't be impatient.

I went through and deleted cookies or adjusted them etc. That seemed to fix my problem Kar.

You might just have to do that occasionally to make sure you can still logout.

Just a note, some of the stuff in the Marvin's sig expanded topic thing in the top forum, is very much still geared towards the EZboard stuff.
