Why do I see "squares" or random characters in the thread titles/downloaded songs or series files ??
You get these because your pc has not got the necessary files to view chinese characters, you can download the chinese simplified pack here which should be sufficient (If you want you can also download the traditional chinese pack and the japanese language pack, these are not necessary but just incase). This should display most of the necessary chinese characters.
An alternative is go to My Computer >>>> Change a Setting (control panel) >>>> Date, Time, Language & Regional Options. Then under the "Regional Options" tab then in the standards and format box change the language/country to "Chinese (Hong Kong S.A.R)" (or any other chinese country, but better if you use a country that uses simplified chinese like China/PRC. I just use HK because i'm from there, HK uses traditional chinese and so therefore characters won't appear right since most chinese characters now are simplified characters), do the same in the "Advanced" tab under the "Language for Non-Unicode Programs" box. Also under the "Languages" tab, you can check the "Install Files For East Asian Languages" box. Using this method will display ANY chinese characters on anything and I mean anything but DO AT YOUR OWN RISK as some programs/applications will change completely to chinese if they are able to and in google.com it will think your in Hong Kong so you get the chinese version of google with more chinese related searches so basically if you can't understand chinese don't bother doing this.
The first method is well sufficient if your chinese isn't that good just to make things look right as since you can't understand chinese anyway there is really no point in doing the second method as you can't read it.
Why isn't my post count increasing ??
Please take note of the screens below
How do I show images in my posts ??
First upload your images to any image hosting site, such as www.imageshack.us, www.tinypic.com or www.photobucket.com, etc. Then copy and paste the direct link to the image between the bbcode
For example: [ IMG ]http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g118/DragonLoaded/PopularAsians/untitled.jpg[ /IMG ] <-------- Remove spaces and it should appear as below
If you are still confused you can always "quote" other members posts that contain images to see what the bbcode is like
How to multi-quote ??
The quote system works by taking the first quote u pick so if u decided to quote someone from page 3 and then go back to page one and quote another, the quote from page 3 will show first. This works the same for quoting posts on the same page.
[SIZE=2]Cross thread quoting works too but it would be better to quote only within the same thread to avoid confusing people.
How to multi-quote
First, you multi-quote a few replys with this () button then when the post is quoted it'll look like this () , then you click on for your final quote to finish writing.
How to use the search functions
( this searches the specific forum only ) not the whole forum!
(this searches the entire forum) use advanced search to filter out which sections of the forum to search
(this searches only the blog/news/front pages) not the forum!
in addition we also have google search in the forum index
Any other things I should know ??
Yes the most important thing is that before you ask any questions in your posts or creating threads regarding to downloads like language, subititles or release dates for the specific thread or tech support (by this I mean like questions in the technology section), etc. Please Please do some searches using our search function and read through the whole thread as it may already been answered by the author of the thread or by another member.
I am directing this towards the really dumbass and repetitive questions that was asked
