    *All members are responsible to remain aware of any changes in what is written here as it will be updated continuously.
    *PLEASE add your thoughts/opinions in the responses below by responding to this Topic head, not the individual responses. We welcome your input!

    USER GUIDE & RULES

    1. Your profile page is only to access functions (like messages, notifications, friends-list, et cetera) but also has a place to a link to a “home” somewhere in the Forums which admin (Eyvisl or Poh) will help you place & design.

    2. Forum layout & content density at different “levels” of the site navigation in any menus. Anachronous forums are an obvious arrangement of continents w/ each culture/empire represented within. The continents will have very little content, to pique your curiosity. After you click on the continent you will see the cultures/empires w/i & having a little bit more content/imagery. After you click on a culture/empire you will see regions/states/whatever w/i. These will have much more content/imagery as will the cities below this in navigation. The cities can be very elaborate & extra-rich in content.

    3. No images (or files) are to be uploaded to the site, unless the main (top) image for a forum that is a location (continent, culture, country or city). Images & Videos must be “embedded” from a (free) image hosting site so as to avoid driving up the costs of membership by exceeding bandwidth limits. All images used on this site must be open-licensed (wikicommons, for example), owned by persons using them or are clearly sourced w/ credit to author & w/ link-back. *At the top of the Forums page is a link to contact admin (Eyvisl or Poh) to help with this.

    4. All members must be kind & patient with one-another. No aggressive, racial, hostile, inflamatory, “flaming”, threatening behavior will be tolerated! Such actions will lead to permanent banning from Anachronous History Forums (aka “Site”, “AHF” or “Anachronous” in usage throughout this document). Interpretations & or the consequence of such behavior do not need to be explained by site admins, we have a right to refuse service like any community or business. Banned members are not entitled to refunds for previous membership fees or previous payments for anything, zero exceptions. If you experience any inapropriate behavior please contact admins (Eyvisl or Poh)!

    5. When replying to any topic PLEASE only reply to the actual topic NOT one of the replies. This is important.

    6. All members are encouraged to seriously geek out with the rest of us & play on the “boards” (forums).

    7. Whenever lost, look up. Follow the breadcrumbs! RIGHT below the title of this topic (& every forum) is the breadcrumb link(s). For example, “ANACHRONOUS HISTORY FORUMS › AFRICA › KMT (Egypt)”. Click on any of the items in the breadcrumbs to go to that forum.

    8. Eyvisl Yngling @eyvisl (Owner), or Pohjantahti @pohjantahti (Owner) has the right to move, edit or delete ANY Topic, Forum, Reply, Post or content done by ANY member of Anachronous History Forums that does not fit or is not appropriate by our estimation.

    As @beric & I were pleasantly discussing: PLEASE do not get offended when I move Topics, Forums & Replies to match the layout of the site or fix grammar & spelling, that is my job as owner of the site. I maintain full uber-editor privileges. If you disagree with what I did PLEASE feel free to tell me why. I am TOTALLY open to discuss my edits. These things having been said, I had to do so to my own self. I had posted this in the wrong Topic & moved it here.

    @mangascochise Ah! I get you now. Let’s figure out the phrasing together then. It has already been clearly mentioned in the (brief) User Guide.

    I KNOW. I just want it to be clear to members as they arrive. That’s my point.

    @mangascochise Just reply to the actual topic, not the replies. It’s w/ the other links on the top-right like it is w/ the replies themselves.

    I agree yes. For #5, show where one should do this, as there is a possibility that someone will see the reply to post area first. (I see it now, but I know initially I first saw the other.)

    So, what do you all think about the User Guide & Legal Charter so far? Pretty sure that legal crap is finally done, back to fun!

    We absolutely have to stop just adding media to the library for topics, forums n such. From now on imagery must be embedded from another cloud-drive or something.

    A follow-up for the externally-hosted image topic. I found a way to embed images from the absolute best image host on the web, Google Photos. The only problem with Google Photos is that you cannot embed images, until now and it is very very easy.

    Pick your image from Google Photos, click on it. Now at the top of the screen it’ll show a share icon, click on that. Now a small white box will appear with share options, at the bottom it’ll say “Get Link”. Click on that and copy the link. Now you’ll go to https://ctrlq.org/google/photos/ It will generate an embed code that you simply copy, then paste into the text (not visual) editor of whatever forum, post, comment, topic that you like.

    If that is too complex, go make an account at Imgur.

    It should be included that all imagery used must be embedded from external pic hosting sites. Hosting this site will get very expensive very quickly if we don’t, that -in turn- will seriously drive up the (formulaic) cost of membership for Anachronous. *I no longer recommend Photobucket, they now stamp all the pics. 😐

    So I (aka Eyvisl) have been thinking about a User Guide. It should help people navigate the site, use messages, post replies, know what to do & not do & stuff like that. There are WAY too many bugs to go public yet, please offer ideas.
