Registering
Registration is only required if you plan to post new topics or reply to existing topics. Registration is free, and you are not required to post your real name. You are required to post your actual email address, however.

Smilies
Smilies are keyboard characters used to convey an emotion, such as a smile :) or a frown :(. This bulletin board automatically insert graphical smilies and other small pictures that you would use to grab the attention. Just click on the graphic to insert it in your post.

Using HTML and/or BP Code
For obvious reasons standard HTML code cannot be used in posts. Instead Collectors Forum allows the use of BP Code in posts. BP Code is similar to HTML, but safe and standardized for bulletin board use. To add the code automately, just click the appropriate button and insert your text between the code. You''l see the result both in preview and in your post.
To insert an image, just put its URL between the tags: [img]www.yourserver.com/yourimage.jpg[/img]

Correct BP Code Usage:
[b]Insert your text here[/b]
[font=Courier New][color=Red]You can use multiple codes[/color][/font]

Incorrect BP Code Usage:
[url] www.example.com [/url] - don't put spaces between the bracketed code and the text you are aplying the code to.
[email][/email]joe@mailserver.com - your text should always stay between the tags.

Moderators
Moderators control individual forums. They can edit, delete, or prune any posts in their forums. If you have a question about a particular forum, you should direct it to your forum moderator.

Changing Your Profile
You may easily change any info stored in your registration profile, using the "profile" link located near the top of each page. Simply identify yourself by typing your username and password and all of your profile information will appear on screen. You may change any items, except your username.

Cookies
This bulletin board uses cookies to store the following information: the last time you logged in, your username and password, and your preferred "topic view". These cookies are stored on your browser. No cookies are used to track your movement or perform any other function other than enhance your use of the bulletin board. If your browser does not support cookies, or you have not enabled cookies on your browser, many of these time-saving features will not work properly. Also, you need to have cookies working if you want to enter a private forum.

Editing Your Posts
You may edit or delete your own posts at any time. Just go to the topic where the post to be edited is located and you will see an edit icon on the top right of your post. Click on this icon to edit or delete the post. No one else can edit your post, except for the forum moderator or the bulletin board administrator. A note is generated at the bottom of each post that is edited so that every one knows when a post has been edited. Note that if your post was the start of a new topic, deleting your post will result in the removal of the entire topic (all replies after your topic will also be deleted).

Adding Signatures
You may use a two-lines signature (commonly used in email messages) on your posts, storing in when you register or in your profile. Once you have a signature stored, you can choose to include it any post you make by checking the "include signature" box when you create your post. This bulletin board's administrator may elect to turn the signature feature off at any time, however. If that is the case, the "include signature" option will not appear when you post a note, even if you have stored a signature. You may also change your signature at any time by changing your profile.

Note: You may not use HTML in your signature file, but you may use BP Code (except for the BP Code Image tag).

Attaching Files
For security reasons, you may not attach files to any posts. You may cut and paste text into your post, however, or use HTML and/or BP Code (if enabled) to provide hyperlinks to outside documents.

Searching For Specific Posts
You may search for specific posts based on a word or words found in the posts, user name, date, and particular forum(s). Just click on the "search" link at the top of most pages. Note: announcements are not included in the search returns.

Announcements
Announcements are one-way communications from either a forum moderator or a bulletin board administrator. No one may post replies to these announcements. If you want to talk about specific announcements, you will have to create a new topic in the appropriate forum.

Censoring Posts
The bulletin board administrators have the power to censor certain words that may be posted. This censoring is not an exact science, however, so certain words may be censored out of context. Please realize that the censoring, if any censoring is being performed, is being done by a computer based on the words that are being screened. Words that are censored are replaced with asterisks.

Lost User Name and/or Password
Retrieving your username and password is simple, assuming that email features are turned on for this bulletin board. All of the pages that require you to identify yourself with your username and password carry a "lost password" link that you can use to have your username and password emailed instantly to your email address of record.

Email Notification
If you create a new topic, you have the option of receiving an email notification every time someone posts a reply to your topic. Just check the email notification box on the "New Topic" forum when you create your new topic, if you want to use this feature.

What is the Active List?
When you visit this bulletin board, you will see a link in the menu bar called "Active". Clicking on this will provide you with all topic in all open forums that have been posted to that day.

Can I search private forums?
Currently, only administrators and moderators can search through private forums.
