    Welcome to NF! If you've been directed here then you must be a new member eager to learn the ins and outs of the forum and get yourself accustomed to everything. In this section of the Forum Walkthrough you'll find relevant information to help you out on that journey and make your life much, much easier!

    Introduction:
    When you first make an account on Naruto Forums one of the first steps to make is making an introduction thread . By doing this you give users a chance at getting to know you, while also meeting some of the userbase you'll see around the forums.​

    No one is demanding an essay out of you, but some general info and interests are more than good to become the building blocks of your NF social life. Though as expected - the more info you give, the more common ground you may have with some users!​


    Informative Threads:
    Now that you've made an introduction thread there's a few other threads that you should check out and read to really submerge yourself into the Naruto Forums culture which will aid you greatly in your social rise into the community.​

    • Links
      • , within you'll find the rules which will keep you on the right side of the law.
      • , minor additions you'd like to suggest but feel don't deserve their own thread go here.
      • , if you have an emote to be added post it here, but do read the Opening Post for suggestion guidelines first.
      • , tired of your username? Simply messed up? Post here and get it changed! Do read relevant information in the opening post before requesting a name change though.
      • , minor questions about the forum can be asked here.
      • , a Member's outlook on NF and how you can incorporate yourself better into the community.
      • , old F.A.Q. thread that may help with some unanswered questions.
      • , information that should be kept in mind before making a Q&C thread.
      • , when posting links or images from manga/anime they must come from approved sites listed here.


    Sections of Interest:
    After you've taken care of all of the above and are familiarized with the rules of the forums you're officially ready to explore the forum and visit all the sections you're interested in. Here you can find a couple that may or may not interest you right now, but worth mentioning that you'll more than likely end up in one of them sooner rather than later!​
    • Links
      • , forum updates, new additions and the Forum Newsletter can be found here frequently.
      • , if you have any issues or questions that are not answered in this thread then you need to make a thread in the Q&C. If you have a complaint about a specific moderator post it in the Staff Conference Room .
      • , commonly referred to as the CB (Chatterbox) this is the off-topic section where you can find ITT's, forum games and similar content.

    Avatar & Signature

    What is an Avatar?
    An Avatar is the image that's attached to all of your posts above your username, with it you can express your interests, creativity or personality.​
    Spoiler: avatar example



    How do I use an Avatar?
    At the top of the page when you hover over your username a dropdown menu will show up, at the top leftside of it you'll see the Avatar option. Click on it.​
    Spoiler: dropdown example



    Once clicked you'll be able to upload an image from your PC.​
    Spoiler: uploader




    Where do I go to put an Avatar on or Change it?
    Return to the Avatar Editor as seen in above example and Choose File.​


    I don't see the option to put an Avatar up?
    If you don't see the Avatar option under the dropdown menu, nor have the ability to access the Avatar Editor it could be because of 2 things:​
    • You have less than 25 posts.
    • You've been Avatar banned.
    If you're a new or old member with less than 25 posts you need to make the posts to advance into the standard member usergroup. Once 25 posts have been made send a message to any Staff Member to request the perms be added to your account, or alternatively make a thread in the Q&C section.​

    If you have more than 25 posts and have been Avatar banned - in most cases you should have received a PM to go with it. If not make a thread in the Staff Conference Room.​


    What are the size and dimension limits of an Avatar?
    175Wx250H is the standard dimension for members. Contest winners however can win or buy with prize points 175Wx350H avatar permissions for a set amount of time.​

    File Size limit is 1MB max, for both standard and contest avatar sizes.​


    My gif Avatar isn't playing?
    Make sure that it's within the dimension and file size limits, and that the gif render settings aren't outdated. If it's properly saved and within file size and dimension limits and still not working make a thread in the Q&C.​


    Where do I go to get a Signature?
    Right underneath the Avatar option in the dropdown menu as seen in above example with Avatars.​


    How do I upload a Signature from my PC?
    You cannot. You need to host your image on a site such as Imgur.​


    My image isn't showing up in Signature?
    This could be due to a few things:​
    • Your link must be HTTPS and not HTTP.
    • If it is an animated signature it must be GIF and not GIFV.
    • The image may have been deleted or removed from the host site.
    How do I get my Signature to show?
    Make sure it follows the above guidelines, it has to be an HTTPS url, and if animated has to be GIF and not GIFV. As long as it meets those requirements it should show up just fine.​


    I don't see Signature's when I post?
    Return to the dropdown menu and under 'Preferences' make sure that the show signature option is checked. In the same manner you can disable signature's by unchecking the box.​
    Spoiler: signature option




    What are the rules for what can be shown in my Signature?
    Extremely graphic, racially charged or sexual content cannot be used in signature's. This includes Genitalia, bare breasts and sexual acts.​



    What are the size and dimension limits for a Signature?
    700Wx300H is the standard size for all members, with a 3MB maximum on file size. This includes any extra images inside your signature space. Ignoring the size limits or signature rules repeatedly may result in a signature ban.​


    Can someone make me an Avatar/Signature?
    Yes! In the Art Lounge's , where members frequently post avatars/signature's for other members to use, in it you can also request members to edit/make avatars/signature's for you.​

    Threads & Posts


    Can I change my user rank?
    Yes you can! Return to the dropdown menu and click on Personal Details or simply click . Once there you'll see the Custom Title field where you can enter your custom user rank.​
    Spoiler: custom title




    My post count went down?
    This could be due to a variety of reasons:​

    • Your thread/the thread you posted in got trashed.
    • Your post(s) were deleted due to being off-topic/spam.
    • You posted in a convo thread which reached its ending and was archived.


    My thread got trashed?
    If you feel your thread was wrongly moved to the Konoha Landfill (trashed threads section) you can start a conversation with the section moderator in charge or make a thread in the Staff Conference Room. Threads are commonly trashed due to being irrelevant to the section it was placed in, being an attempt at baiting extreme reactions and similar reasons.​


    Can I get a custom user rank?
    Generally, yes! Though it depends on the level of customization. When you go to Personal Details you can enter anything in your title as is (within the constraints of the forum rules at least), however you cannot use HTML to fully customize your title.​

    Contest winners on the other hand can purchase with prize points the permissions to be able to use HTML in their title which opens the door for custom image user ranks, coloured, italicized, bolded ranks and more.​


    How do I see the latest posts made on the forum?
    Click on New Posts as shown below.​
    Spoiler: dark/light/allure skin


    Spoiler: sasuke/akatsuki/shounen jump heroes/naruto skin




    How do I see posts from a specific member?
    The easiest method is visiting their profile, under the Information tab there's an option to view all content the user has posted, additionally there's the Postings tab which shows some of the latests posts they have made.​

    Alternatively if you're interested in posts made in a specific section you can use the search option to look up posts made by a specific user.​
    Spoiler: post search




    How do I link a specific post?
    At the very bottom of the post you desire to link right click on either the post date or the # of the post and copy the URL, this link is a permalink which when clicked will take directly to that specified post.​
    Spoiler: example




    Why can't I vote on a poll?
    Check that the poll is open, polls can have a time limit set up and once time runs out no more votes will be accepted.​


    How do I change my thread title?
    Under thread tools you'll see 'Edit Title', as long as it's your thread and the thread in question is open you can edit your title in this manner. If the thread is locked you'll need to contact the section moderator in charge.​
    Spoiler: edit title




    Can I get alerts when someone posts in my thread?
    Yes you can, next to Thread Tools click on 'Watch Thread' this'll alert you for every new response made in that thread. You can also do this when creating a thread by checking the watch this thread box.​
    Spoiler: thread example




    Can I get alerts when someone posts in someone else's thread?
    Yes you can, just watch the thread you're interested in by clicking Watch Thread next to thread tools.​

    Alternatively if you want to see alerts for every thread you create and post in you can select that option in your preferences. To do so go back to the dropdown menu and click on Preferences, scroll down a bit and tick the box to watch all threads you make and post in.​
    Spoiler: example


    Another option if you wish to receive alerts for an entire section is clicking on 'Watch Forum' in a specific section.​
    Spoiler: watch forum




    Can I see who posted in a thread?
    Yes you can, right next to Thread Tools click on 'Top Contributors'. This'll show you who all posted in that thread.​


    Can I see how much a specific person posted in a thread?
    Yes you can, Top Contributors not only shows who all posted in a thread but also how many posts they made in that thread.​


    Can I search for posts from a specific member inside a thread?
    Yes you can, once you're inside the thread go to search bar up top and repeat the process from ''How do I see posts from a specific member?" and simply tick the 'Search This Thread Only' box. ​
    Spoiler: example




    Can I see the posts/threads I/another member made?
    Yes you can, on your profile/another member's profile under the Information tab you can view all content (posts) or all threads you/the user made.

    What's a threadmark?
    Threadmarks are a convenient way to index important posts within your thread. Once a post is threadmark'd you can always jump directly to it from the index.​


    How do I use threadmarks?
    There's a few methods you can use once you're inside of your thread.
    Spoiler: method 1


    Click Threadmark

    Add Threadmark Label (Title of the index'd post)​

    Spoiler: method 2


    Directly above the box where you'll make a new post.​

    Spoiler: style chooser




    When will a new forum skin be added?
    As of now there are currently no plans of making new skins due to time constraints. ​


    Can I make a forum skin?
    Yes, surely you can. Xenforo offers a Demo option at the very least which gives access to the theme designer. If you have knowledge of CSS or a desire to learn it's a good way at making a forum skin. ​


    Will you add my forum skin?
    Promises cannot be made, however if you make a forum skin it'll be looked at seriously. With approval and general checking up on to make sure there's as few bugs and quirks as possible it'll be then added for the general population. Additionally if your forum skin is accepted expect a reward for the hard work put into it. ​

    On your own, no you cannot, but worry not. To have your birthday changed you can contact an administrator or make a thread in the Staff Conference Room to have it changed for you. ​

    If you wish to change names much more frequently however it is possible to purchase name changes with prize points from contests and events. ​

    BB Codes


    Spoiler
    The spoiler BB code comes in 2 variants, the spoiler tag that opens and closes, and also the spoiler bar.
    Spoiler: this is the standard spoiler tag

    Very handy for massive images, series spoilers and more.

    To use them just do the following:
    Code:
     [SPOILER] text / image / whatever else you want within the spoiler tag [/SPOILER]
    
    This will give you the standard spoiler tag
    Additionally you can add a 'title' to the spoiler.

    Code:
     [SB] Now this is how you add a spoiler bar. [/SB]

    Without the * 
    Spoiler: inbuilt button




    Strikethrough
    Same as image, can be accessed via BB code or inbuilt button. End Result.
    Code:
     [s]text here[/s]

    Tumblr Embed
    • The above redirects you to a webpage with a bunch of HTML code:
      Code:
       <div class="tumblr-post" data-href="https://embed.tumblr.com/embed/post/yqysOXdB6T_5K3RpxBRqwA/168366464957" data-did="fadd4f52a71d2fc73fe83b46a97e451ea6f2d723"><a href="http://sunako375.tumblr.com/post/168366464957/伍柏諭老師謝謝茄子-転載禁止-reprint-is-prohibited-201712">http://sunako375.tumblr.com/post/168366464957/伍柏諭老師謝謝茄子-転載禁止-reprint-is-prohibited-201712</a></div>  <script async src="https://assets.tumblr.com/post.js"></script>
    • To make a proper embed you need to copy the ID, DID, Key and Name from the code and paste them within MEDIA tags. (XenForo/NF only extracts the name and the post ID hence the embed not working properly/The URL doesn't contain the key and DID codes) In this case:
      • id=168366464957
      • did=fadd4f52a71d2fc73fe83b46a97e451ea6f2d723
      • key=yqysOXdB6T_5K3RpxBRqwA
      • name=sunako375
    • Now put those in MEDIA tags as follows:
    Code:
    [MEDIA=tumblr]id=168366464957;did=fadd4f52a71d2fc73fe83b46a97e451ea6f2d723;key=yqysOXdB6T_5K3RpxBRqwA;name=sunako375[/*MEDIA]
    
    without the asterisk

    Ratings & Reputation


    How many ratings can I give?
    You can give as many or as few ratings as you want, within reason to not turn into ratings abuse.​


    What is ratings abuse?
    Ratings abuse is the act of spamming a single user with too many ratings, this can be positive or negative ratings and if staff notices or the user reports it to us it can result in a ratings ban.​


    Where can I see the ratings I've received?
    Head back to the handy dropdown menu and there you can see all the ratings you've received under 'Ratings Received'.​


    Can I get an alert when someone gives me a rating?
    Yes you can! Head on over to . Or without the link you can head to the dropdown menu, click on personal details and on the left side under Settings you'll see Alert Preferences. To receive alerts for ratings simply check the box 'Likes your message' and save! That's all and now every rating will give you an alert.​


    Where can I see the ratings I've given?
    Same method as seeing ratings you've received, simply click on 'Ratings Given' instead.​


    I got a neg rep now what?
    Don't get discouraged it happens! A user could've simply really disliked your post, it isn't the end of the world. However if the same user is giving you negative rep frequently and without reason you can report it to a moderator to be looked at, which could result in a ratings ban for the abuser. Note: 2 neg reps in a month or two doesn't constitute as abuse.​


    How often can I rep a post?
    A single post you can rep only once ever, but you can rep 9 posts a day.​


    Why can't I rep this member again?
    You have to 'spread' rep before you can rep the same user again, there needs to be 4 other users you've repped before you can rep the same again. Example: User A - B - C - D - E - A.


    Where can I see the rep I've received?
    To see the rep you've received you can either click on Reputation from the dropdown menu, or by going directly your profile and clicking on the Reputation tab.​


    What's the difference between rep points and rep power?
    Reputation points are the total sum of rep that you've received, whereas reputation power is formulated based on your Reputation Points + your forum Join Date to determine your final rep power. Rep power is also the amount of rep points you'll give per rep.​


    How do I get higher rep power?
    To get higher rep power is not an easy task, it requires time to mature your join date, and it requires being repped by other users a good amount. Some forum contests may also include rep points as a consolation prize.​


    How do I get higher rep points?
    Make great/funny posts that users will like is the main way. Contests may award it at times also.​


    Can I hide my rep bar?
    You can! Head back to the dropdown menu and go to Preferences. Check the 'Hide your Reputation' box and click save. Now the rep bar under your avatar will show up no longer, but don't worry you can still receive rep and see comments normally.​


    What are all the different rep ranks?
    Spoiler: some differences to reality may exist






    Can I get a custom rep rank?
    Unfortunately, no.

    What's gold rep?
    It's when your reputation bar turns gold instead of green/red. This happens at 4mil rep points or higher. ​

    Thread, Section & Forum Ban


    Why is my name crossed out?
    If someone's name is crossed out as such, then they've been forum banned.​


    Why can't I post in this thread?
    If you're unable to post in a specific thread while others work fine then you've likely been thread banned. ​


    Why can't I see this section?
    If you've lost access to an entire section while others work fine then you've been section banned.​


    Why are all the sections gone?
    If you see the Konoha Court you've been forum banned. If even that is gone, well you've been Level 2 banned and are unlikely to ever return to NF. ​


    What's the Konoha Court?
    It's fairly self explanatory; the court is the court, make a thread here if you feel wrongly accused and wish to plead your case to remove or decrease your ban length.


    I can't give out ratings or rep to anyone?
    You've been ratings sealed, you should have received a message from a moderator on the duration of it. Alternatively if you have less than 25 posts you need to reach that to unlock ratings.​


    I can't change my avatar or signature anymore?
    You've been ava/sig banned for breaking the rules on graphic content/adult content, you should have received a message from a moderator on the duration of it.​


    Where did the Konoha Court go?
    If you receive a level 2 forum ban you lose access to everything.​


    Why is my ban longer than this other member?
    Generally bans scale; 1 day > 3 days > 1 week > 2 weeks > 1 month > 3 months > 6 months > permanent (indefinite) ban. Which will make differences in ban lengths, also circumstances exist where repeated aggressive behaviour and ignoring warnings may result in escalation in length. Not to mention breaking extreme rules such as posting pornography in public sections may result in an immediate permanent ban.​


    I've been wrongly accused what do I do?
    In the case of a forum ban make your case in the Konoha Court, if it's a thread/section/ava/sig/ratings ban make a thread in the Staff Conference Room. ​


    What's a dupe?
    A dupe or duplicate account is a second account with the same owner, these are not allowed on NF and will result in a permanent ban of the dupe and a lesser ban length on the main account. Some exceptions may vary, and if you wish you restart on a new account make a thread in the Staff Conference Room so staff can ban your main account and permit the usage of your second. ​


    What's a vacation ban?
    If you're feeling the forum is a distraction to your general productivity in life and need to take a break for a while you can request a vacation ban in the Staff Conference Room. This'll limit your access to the forum so you can go back to productive living until you decide to come back. ​

    Forum Contests, Prize Points & Prizes


    What are these forum contests I keep hearing about?
    Forum contests and events are staff hosted content where NF users can obtain prize points and prizes. They can be found in several sections across the forum.​


    How can I participate?
    Each contest or event will generally have the rules and guidelines to participate in the opening post ( #1 ), this can be as simple as just posting in thread or will require some artistic talent for the various graphic contests.​


    What are prize points?
    Prize points can be won from contests and events and can be exchanged for various forum prizes.​


    What can I do with prize points?
    Exchange them for prizes, this can be done by posting in the prize thread found in the event/contest section or by contacting a moderator in charge of the section.​


    What are the prizes I can get?
    • 1 Month:​
      • HTML Usertitle: 3 points

    I have an idea for a contest what should I do with it?
    If you wish to suggest a contest or event to be hosted on NF create a SCR thread for it or start a conversation with @White Wolf


    Will there be more contests?
    Yes, be it member suggestions that are accepted or staff ideas, in general there's always more around the corner.​


    Will there be more prizes?
    Not at this time, but anything is possible with the passing of time.​


    Do my prize points expire?
    No, they do not.


    Can I combine points from different sections to get a prize?
    Yes, you can. With the exception of the Mafia section all sections points are interchangeable. It is recommended that if you're using a majority of points from one section and only a minimum amount from another to request the prize in the majority section.​


    My prize disappeared?
    All prizes are limited on time, which you're told of when you get the prize. If it disappeared but your time isn't up though, make a thread in the Q&C section to have it looked into.​

    How do I see who moderates a section?
    In each section there's an option to view the Moderator List which will show staff specifically allotted to that section.​
    Spoiler: example




    I have a problem with a user who do I turn to?
    If there's an issue with a specific user inside of a section you can:​
    • Report the post/conversation/profile message.
    • Contact the section moderator directly by starting a conversation with them.
    • Make a SCR thread.
    • Contact a Global Moderator/Super Moderator/Admin by starting a conversation with them if the previous options fail.
    Can I see all staff somewhere?
    Yes, you can. Two of the easiest ways are:​
    1. Visit the in the Q&C which is updated regularly.
    2. Under the Staff Members tab of the Notable Members portion of the Members tab.
    Spoiler: Staff Members tab




    Who are these users with an Advisor rank?
    Advisors are former staff members who have retained a voice in staff related discussions. While retired by all means they remain to help out with ideas and general discussions on the forum's future.​


    What abilities do moderators have and do I need a super moderator for my problem?
    Moderator capabilities can be seen in the . If your problem can't be handled by a section moderator you'll need to reach out to a Global or Super moderator.​


    Can I be a moderator?
    You can't request it no and in general requesting to be a moderator is a likely disqualification in itself. Moderator candidates will generally be vetted by a section moderator (or higher) who sees active and good posting behaviours in a specific section. If your presence is very minimal in the section you think you can moderate the chances of being noticed are pretty low, and in general being well liked by the people you'd operate with does help get the ball rolling.​


    This user is annoying can you ban him?
    If they aren't breaking any rules then no. Otherwise you can report their posts or make a thread in the S.C.R. to have it looked into.​


    What do the different username colours and font types mean?
    Section Moderator
    Global Moderator
    Super Moderator
    Admin
    S-Mods and Admins additionally have the option to customize their colour and font, but the tag under their avatars will remain to distinguish them from one another.

    The bathhouse is a section for members who are 18+ years old and wish to see pornographic content. It is the only place where such things are allowed on the forum.​

    Read more about it . In general send a message to one of the people listed in that thread if you meet all the listed requirements. ​


    What are these medals under a user's name?
    Medals can be awarded once a user meets the specified requirements. ​


    Can I get them too?
    Yes, you can. If you meet the specified requirements post in with the medal(s) you wish to receive. ​


    I'm tired of looking at them what do I do now?
    In the handy dropdown menu under preferences you can checkmark the 'Hide all Medals' box, which will hide them. Otherwise there's no alternative to removing medals. ​


    I keep getting logged out?
    When logging in make sure that 'Stay Logged In' is checked if you wish to remain logged in without any interruptions. ​


    Give me a bigger avatar?
    Win a contest/forum event or save up prize points to get one.​


    Why does the forum keep lagging?
    If the forum is slow while all your other browser tabs function just fine it's likely due to some server issues which should resolve themselves swiftly enough.​


    Why can't I see blogs?
    Just like with avatar permissions to see blogs you need to have 25 forum posts and you might need to wait up to an hour for the usergroup to update. ​


    This is a useless thread you didn't answer anything I wanted to know!
