    ^ They're what about supposed to be used for one-shots for the new mibba.
    Right now you can only submit them, though.
    Everything about them isn't all that clear at the moment.
    I'm sure everything will be with the new mibba though.

    My story has an error and no one will tell me what it is. It no longer appears on the stories page. What do I do?

    Okay, so I'm trying to put a banner I made for my story in the summary and it isn't working at all! What am I doing wrong? Cos' when I go to edit it I put in this:

    [img]http://xmemoriex.buzznet.com/user/photos/you-told-me-this-gets/?id=47921381[/img]

    and when I check to see if it worked the picture doesn't show but just the url above.

    Right click the picture and click 'copy image location'.
    Then past that in the area.
    You need the direct link, not the URL of the page the image is on.

    Only mods and admins can lock topics when they break the board rules. I usually use my magic wand but...

    we can also click that button.

    I think, don't quote me, but a former mod told me once that if a topic link somehow isn't working for Mibba as a whole or if the post count is wrong from the actual post count, you can click repair and it fixes it.

    ^ Correct.

    Repair just updates the topic basically. So if for some reason you hit submit and it takes you back to the first page of the thread it'll fix that (I think..:think:), or if a post is deleted and the post count is wrong, etc, then it'll fix it.

    It just updates it basically. :shifty

    Okay, thanks! :cute:

    I've got another question too. Under what circumstances does one have to delete a topic? Because I thought the topics just got locked. :think:

    They do just get locked.

    But we're also meant to clean up the forums. We chose forums a while ago that we were to be in charge of where we delete locked topics and fix up thread titles, etc. ..I generally just wait a few weeks or something then go around deleting locked threads if I'm bored.

    Dujo is able to delete all locked threads in one go. :weird

    But anyway, threads are deleted when they're no longer needed. If it's some pointless stupid thread I might lock then delete it straight away. But some threads that are locked need to be kept 'cause they're useful for people to reference to. :shifty

    That must a lot of fun. Dujo obviously has the force in his grasp/the one click button. :XD

    Thanks, that clears it up. :arms:

    When someone creates an account for the purpose of spamming something (advertising links) it's immediately deleted, or if someone accidentally submits a thread twice, stuff like that.
