“Chapel Perilous, that vortex where cosmological speculations, coincidences, and paranoia seem to multiply and then collapse, compelling belief or lunacy, wisdom or agnosticism.” ~Robert Anton Wilson

    ***New Members Read Here First***

    Post by Lucid Memes on Wed Mar 04, 2009 2:06 am

    Welcome to The Invisible Academy

    All rules are subjective to administrative interpretation. For account problems, or trouble registering please PM or Email with questions.



    New Member's Introduction Thread

    It would be a good idea if new members create an introduction thread in the "[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]" just expressing a bit about yourself.

    It's a good way to get familiar with the community and it also lets me know you're not a robot Wink

    Just click "[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]" and have it Smile

    (current active members are encouraged to participate in the greetings of newbs)



    Bannable Offenses

    The first few transgressions with result in temporary forum limitations (no posting, no quoting, no voting)

    Banning May be Caused by:

    1. Member Harassment (including pms, threats)

    2. Deliberately Hateful Comments

    3. Trolling (agitating posts. posting ridiculous/racist/grossout/disturbing/pornographic comments, images or links)

    4. Spamming (do not use this forum as a vessel for your ideology, if you post any article, at least provide a few sentances of your opinion on the matter)

    5. Postwhoring (numerous small or irrelevant comments to quickly increase post count)

    6. Pictorial or Video Obscenities (just try not to post any full on visual nudity)

    7. Posting a private conversation or personal information without consent.

    8. Multiple Threads (use the search engine for similar topics, if they already exist, post it there to avoid redundancy)

    9. Lurker Inactivity (registering and not posting anything at all, you'll be banned after 14 days.)




    Avatar and Signature limits

    Avatar maximum = 150 x 200

    Signature pic maximum = 600 x 100

    They don't have to be this big, but must at least fall within those dimensions.

    There is also a 500 character limit to signature texts



    Posting Capabilities

    gotta know the code Smile

    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    But the very basics...

    to post a url link:
    [url] (enter url here) [/url]

    images:
    [img] (enter image url here) [ /img]

    youtube video:
    [youtube] (enter youtube here) [/youtube]

    Also, as an IA preference, if you're gonna copy/paste a very long amount of text, don't overwhelm your readers, please put them in spoiler tags

    [spoiler] (long body of text) [ /spoiler]

    Plus, it makes this place look more tidy Very Happy

    note: these tags need to be posted without spaces to get the proper effect

    Don't hesitate to ask questions.



    Belt Title Rankings

    These are the current title settings associated with post count (this is not to be taken seriously lol Very Happy ) (also, post whores will be restricted)

    0 = White Belt
    25 = Yellow Belt
    75 = Orange Belt
    150 = Green Belt
    250 = Blue Belt
    375 = Purple Belt
    525 = Brown Belt
    700 = Black Belt
    900 = Red Belt
    1125 = The Invisible Belt (rankings no longer matter. available with custom option)

    rankings are subject to change

    It took me forever to realize that whenever I made an html link within a post, it would automatically put the link at the bottom of the page. So what I do now is go ahead and put the links first and then work my text around them. Just a little tip if anyone else is struggling with that like I did...lol. Most of the time my computer mistakes are Rolling Eyes

    When the links appear at the bottom, what you can do is just highlight it and copy it (ctrl + c)

    Then paste (ctrl + v) it back into your written text

    I find this way easier. But I suppose you can write around links if you feel more comfortable that way. There's always more than one way to skin a cat lol
