Questions that have already been asked here in the forums will be posted here. These questions will only be general questions, not user-specific questions.
Your question may already be answered here. This PAQ is meant to not only answer your questions, but it also reduces the amount of unnecessary threads that may occur in the near future of this forum.
Also, it would help us dearly if you would spend the time to browse through the Help forum before you post your question. There may be some threads that the PAQ hasn't archived yet, and will also contain the question that you've asked answered.

1a) How do I use an avatar?
Go to your Profile via the Sandbox tab at the top of the screen (If you're not using the default Dimension skin, go to Profile), there you are given the option to Modify your Profile. Click this and scroll down until you see a drop down menu labeled Avatar.
There you may use one of our forum's preset avatars. Open the drop down menu and click on one of them to preview it.
Or, you may use your own avatar by providing a URL in the textbox labeled Avatar URL:. Just copy and paste the URL after hosting it and it'll show after you save your settings.
How do you host an Avatar? Photobucket is an excellent host for images, but you need to register to use their services. If you don't want to register, you can use Imageshack to host your images but it could take a while to upload an image. Your decision. ^_^
If your avatar violates our Rules however, we'll remove it immediately and give you a warning.
You can then specify the avatar's height and width in the next few textboxes with the same label. The max dimensions are 100x100, but that doesn't mean the file you uploaded HAS to be that size. You can even use a 200x200 image and it'll be reduced to the dimensions that you specified. This only applies to URL images as you can't edit the dimensions for our preset avatars.
2a) How do I put images in my signature?
Same thing with the avatars, you'll need to host your images first. Once you do, you put the URL in the following code:
Paste the code in the Signature: textbox and save your settings, your image should show in your Signature.
The maximum size for all signatures (Including text) is 500x250 pixels, if your signature exceeds the limit you will be PM'd about your signature size, and we'll decrease the size of your signature.
This is how all linked text should look like. If your link doesn't look like this, double check your code to see if it is correct. Sometimes, certain URLs need the http:// sign before the URL itself. If there is a problem with your code (or anything other code) that has not been resolved here, please post your issue in the help forum and we'll see what's up.
4a) What do the colored names mean?
The colored names in our forum represent AC's Staff & WoaA's staff. Here is the legend:
a745 (Administrator) sukotsuto (Administrator) Moderators Wings of an Angel Staff AC's Humor Squad (Led by Chibiko. Thread)
If you are using the default Dimensions skin, then names in black are profiles that you have not viewed. Names in blue are profiles you have already viewed. Profile view colors vary with whatever skin you use. The colors in the legend will ALWAYS stay the same in whatever skin you use.
5a) Where can I showcase my signatures and avatars?
VCent: (That smiley emoji reminds me of Pacman 2 The New Adventures... That game was pretty special)

Grainofariver: I assume that this is really that back-alley street you end up on because you missed your turn and there's a no u-turn sign at the next light.

YoukhristZ: Hey guys, LeeTraxin wanred me to tell you guys that he's out at the beach this week, so he won't be responding until he gets back since he doesn't have any internet connection over there.

Grainofariver: Thanks for letting us know. Maybe by the time he's back, the site will be fixed. So... how are YOU doing then? Not at the beach, but still having a good summer?

Grainofariver: I'll throw this here for people new and old, in caps so it stands out, not because I'm shouting: THE (small) GROUP OF ACTIVE PEOPLE POST IN THE RANDOM THOUGHT THREAD, WHICH IS FOUND IN THE "DEBRIS BELT" UNDER THE "GENERAL" HEADER! See you there!

VCent: abyssc.proboards.com/posts/recent is also a great way to see where the active people are (changing "posts" to "threads" lets you sort by thread instead of post).
