    Naruto Forums Frequently Asked Questions and Beginner's guide.

    Thanks for signing up here at Naruto Forums. I'd like to welcome all the new members. Here's hoping that you'll have a fun time here. To address some of the simpler questions new members might have, Here's the NF FAQ. Click on a topic to view.

    Spoiler: How do I attain a New Rank?
    #1: How do I attain a New Rank?
    The Narutoforums "Ninja Rank" system is based upon the number of posts you create in sections of the forum where posts will count towards your total. There are areas will it will not count; see below for details.


    Spoiler: What are the ranks, and how many posts do I need to attain them?
    #2: What are the ranks, and how many posts do I need to attain them?

    The ranks are as follows;

    Chuunin------------------------200
    Academy Teacher----------------300

    Sith Lord--------------------27,300
    -------------------30,000


    Spoiler: I'm making posts. Why isn't my post count going up?
    #3: I'm making posts. Why isn't my post count going up?

    There are sections of the forum where posts do not count towards your total. These are:

    Konoha Times
    Academy Registration
    Fanclubs
    The Konoha Lounge
    The Blender
    The Konoha Arcade
    The Pachinko Parlour
    The Staff Conference Room
    Rules and Frequently Asked Questions

    Additionally, the Konoha landfill also has disabled postcount.


    Spoiler: My post count's gone down. Why?
    #4: My post count's gone down. Why? :(
    If you've made posts in a section of the forum which has postcount enabled, your count will go up. If the thread you've posted in is then moved to the Landfill, your posts will go back down again.
    Additionally, if one of your posts has been deleted by a forum moderator, that post will no longer count towards your total.


    Spoiler: Who are the forum moderators, Administrators, and notable persons?
    #5: Who are the forum moderators, Administrators, and notable persons?
    You can look up all the forum leaders under the forum leaders listing.
    Under the Moderators tab, you'll find the persons tasked with maintaining specific forums. If you have a question pertaining to a certain forum, PMing the moderator in charge of it would be the best course of action. Moderators have specific powers only under their own section. They can move, trash, delete, merge, close and open, moderate (make it so that a thread would have to be approved before viewing, that way only moderators can see them), and sticky threads in their section. They can also edit thread titles, change/remove/add poll options, and with a bit of work, add a poll. They can make announcements and prune a subsection. They also can do IP searches.

    Under the Super Moderators tab you'll find the Super Moderators - moderators with knowledge of the entire forum and the ability to moderate any part of it. If you want to report something inappropriate that requires editing/removal, or have a question about the forum in general, asking them would be your best bet. Super Moderators have all the power of Moderators, just over all sub-forums. They also have the power to enable/disable/edit avatars and signatures, execute forum-wide/section bans and unbans, perform reputation seals, view incoming reputation, and do hard deletion (soft deleting is what mods do, in which you can see the "this thread/post" is deleted. Hard deleting removes it entirely and you can never get it back).

    Under the Administrators tab, you'll find the persons in charge of running the inner workings of the forum. If you have a question, the Administrators are probably not the best persons to ask - although we'll try to help, we're generally somewhat busy and may take some time to respond. Administrators have everything the Super Moderators have. They have the power to create usergroups and move members into their respective usergroups (some moderators are also granted power over usergroup changing like the Bathhouse usergroup and senior membership). They have the power to remove polls in threads. They can change the number of reputation points and posts you have, along with changing anything else in your profile - check all incoming and outgoing reputation, create and manipulate sub-forums, change usernames, change username colors via usergroups (or manipulate however they want - flashing, sparkles, etc), section ban and unban, IP ban, upload icons and emotes, change sub-forum descriptions, change what the reputation ranks say, change post ranks, and promote members to staff.

    Members with a Dark Red user name are Forum Advisors. These are retired staff members who still wish to help out with forum policies or staff taking a break from regular duties. They do not have any actual powers, however. Please contact a regular Moderator if you need help.


    Spoiler: Where can I download episodes or chapters of Naruto?
    #6: Where can I download episodes or chapters of Naruto?
    The Naruto episode download listing by SliceandDice is an excellent place to look for Naruto anime downloads.

    For the Naruto manga, the Konoha Library always has the latest raw (untranslated) chapters, translations, and scanslations posted at the top.
    For previous chapters, it doesn't get any easier then the narutofan.com manga section.


    Spoiler: How do I make these cool buttons to hide text?
    #7: How do I make these cool buttons to hide text?

    Spoiler:
    Your text or images here


    Spoiler: How do I use BitTorrent?
    #8: How do I use BitTorrent?
    The Narutoforums Bittorrent FAQ by Reznor is a good place to get some basic answers about aspects of the bittorrent system.
    For a more detailed description, Brian's BitTorrent FAQ and Guide goes over every bit of bittorrent comprehensively.


    Spoiler: How do I add images to Posts or signatures?
    #9: How do I add images to Posts or signatures?
    Answer #9: Using the forum code, you can put images into your posts using the IMG tags.

    You need to host the image on a website... you can try or

    Once you have the url for your image, place it in the post or signature and put it in image tags. Thus,

    [.IMG]http://www.narutoforums.com/images/icons/kakaicon.gif[/img]



    Spoiler: What is a signature, and how do I use one?
    #10: What is a signature, and how do I use one?
    A signature is a block of text or images that is placed after every one of your posts. To create a signature, go to Edit Signature, which can be found under the User Control Panel.


    Spoiler: Where can I get an avatar or a signature image?
    #11: Where can I get an avatar or a signature image?
    Try looking around the internet - many websites offer avatar galleries. If you're looking for a custom avatar or a signature, you can submit a request in the Requests forum.


    Spoiler: How do I post a Poll in a thread?
    #12: How do I post a Poll in a thread?
    When creating a new thread, you'll notice under "additional options" the option to post a poll with the thread:


    Make sure the check box is checked, and hit "submit new thread". Once you hit submit thread, the thread will be created; the poll will only be added once you complete the process by filling out this screen:
