    Post Spoiler Button?

    Spoilers just got even cooler with our handy dandy spoiler button.

    If you have information you don't think everyone wants to know, then click the little SPOIL icon (next to the YouTube icon) when writing a post. Tags will pop up that look like this (but w/out spaces):

    [ SPOILER][/SPOILER ]

    You should place any information you want to keep hidden between the two tags. Voila! Instant hidden spoiler!

    Example:
    This:
    [ SPOILER]Oh No! Stefano totally killed everyone![/SPOILER ]

    Will look like this:
    Spoiler!

    *click the Show button to see it in action*

    Polls

    Anyone can post a poll when they create a new thread. Polls can not be created in replies. This option allows you to post a question and provide a number (up to 10) of reponses. Other users will then be able to vote on the poll and the results can be seen at the top of the thread.

    POSTING POLLS:
    If you want to post a poll on your new thread, simply scroll down below the text box and find the Post a Poll option. Check the "Yes, post a poll with this thread option" and enter the number of responses you want to include.
    Select Submit New Thread and after a quick loading screen, your Post a Poll page will come up. This is where you enter all your poll's information.

    VOTING/VIEWING POLLS:
    To vote in a poll, simply select which option you want to vote for, and click the [Vote!] button. You may view the current results for a poll before you vote by clicking the 'View Results' link. Voting in a poll is entirely optional. You may vote for any of the available options, or cast no vote at all.

    Generally, once you have voted in a poll, you will not be able to change your vote later, so place your vote carefully!

    Post Buddy/Ignore Lists

    The buddy list is used to keep track of the friends you have made on this forum. By going to the Open Buddy List option in the Quick Links menu at the top of any page, you'll be able to see which of your friends are currently online and send them a private message.

    Adding people to your buddy list also allows you to send private messages to multiple forum members at the same time. You may add any member of coffeerooms to your buddy list by viewing their profile and choosing "Add user to your Buddylist" or by going to Buddy / Ignore Lists at the bottom of your control panel on your edit options page.

    Ignore lists are used for those people whose messages you wish not to read. By adding someone to your ignore list, those messages posted by these individuals will be hidden when you read a thread.

    Private messages are like email but limited to the members of the coffeerooms forums.

    Sending PMs:
    There are a number of ways to send a PM to someone.
    • You can use your buddy list to send PMs to one or more members you have marked as a buddy.
    • Click on the individual's user name in their posts. A drop down menu will appear. Choose the second option: Send a Private Message to Username.
    • Visit the user's profile. On the right hand side, under Contact Info, there is a Private Message option.
    Receiving PMs:
    At the top right hand corner of your screen is a little welcome box. There is a private message notification in this box that lets you know how many Unread and Total PMs you have. Click there to go to your Private Message box.

    You can also set an option to notify you with a little pop up box whenever someone PMS you. To do so, go to the Quick Links drop down menu at the top of any page and select Edit Options. On the right hand side of the page, in the second box down called Messaging & Notification, you will find a box called Private Messaging. Here you can set whether or not you want to recieve PMs, who you recieve them from, email notification of PMs and Show New PM Notification Pop Up. Make sure to read through all of the options and choose what works best for you.
