MangaHelpers FAQ

Here you can find answers to questions about how the board works. Use the links or search box below to find your way around.

Avatars FAQ

First, don't forget to check out the Signature & Avatar Guidelines to make sure that your choices meet our guidelines.

Avatars
  1. Picking a desired avatar In order to do that, you can either go to various websites to search for them, or make one of your own. After you have chosen your desired avatar, you should "save as" it into your computer. For GIF, make sure you "save as" it as .gif file, not .jpeg. The maximun dimension for this forum is 100x100 pixels. Anything bigger than that will be resized automatically.

  2. Uploading After you are done with picking and choosing, you can now move on to uploading and setting it up in your User CP.
  1. go to your User CP
  2. click "Edit Avatar".
  3. go to "Option 2" and click "Browse".
  4. browse from your desktop until you find that avatar.
  5. click "Save"
180x180 pixels is the maximum avatar size. Anything larger will automatically be resized by the forum.

Signatures FAQ

Signatures
First, make sure your signature is in .jpeg, .jpg, .png, .gif and other readable forms. Then, upload your signature using uploader.
There are a few image uploaders that you can try on.
Though there are many to choose from this one will be a simple guide on imageshack.
Imageshack
  1. Go to http://imageshack.us
  2. Click "browse" and look for your file (signature).
  3. Click "Host it!"
  4. Next, look for "HOTLINK FOR FORUM (1)".
  5. Highlight the whole text and paste it in the signature area.

If you want to place your signature in the left side of the page, just add [left]your img code here[/left] to the img code. If you want it to be in the center, add [center]your img code here[/center]. To make it right-aligned, just type [right]your img code here[/right]

Images FAQ

Images Sometimes in a post, you might want to post a few images along as illustrations. Sometimes, you need those images to post spoilers pictures and so on. Exactly how do we post an image?

  • Upload your image to one of the file hosting sites. (For more detailed information look at the signature section of this FAQ).
  • For large files, Imageshack will automatically create thumbnails for you and you can just copy/paste the link.
  • If you don't want to use thumbnails, copy the whole "Direct Link" url and put that between the image tags: [img]direct link url[/img]

Miscellaneous informations on images and so on.

.jpeg
This format is most widely used in avatars and signature. It is used in still image, meaning no animation or flash. Just a still image. So, if you are uploading a still image, make it into .jpeg form.

.gif
This format is used for animated images. Moving objects in an avatar, animation in signatures, they should be saved in .gif format to make sure they 'move'.

.png
Transperancy comes with .png. For example, if you have a transparent sig like this:

save it as .png If you save it as .jpeg, you will get the white background. Saving as .png is meant to keep those white background away. Of course, if you're using a version below IE7 you'll see a background color that matches your desktop theme. No transparency in versions of IE below 7.
