I can't remember whose idea a FAQ thread was after I said I wanted to make one to replace the crappy one that phpBB has stock, but I finally gave into it.
As we go along, I'll edit and update this post with info that's hopefully useful. I'd like to be able to link questions to the answers further down, in the post, but I'm not that fancy yet, so ideally, if you're looking for something, a text search of the keyword should find it (assuming the information is here). Here's the first.--What are the rules?
Please don't be a dick if you can help it.--Who are the board moderators?
Site admins are h.p. taskmaster (JJ) and slevin (Slevin). Arzgarth and Ryan Electrocution also have moderator powers. Any thread or post you deem inappropriate, click the red '!' to make a report and they'll all see it.--Why is the site down late at night?
The forum is backed up daily, and this might occur for a couple minutes at any point between 10pm and 2am each night, depending on how late JJ is up. Either way, it's not a long-term thing, and if you try again in a few seconds, the site'll be back up.--What do people mean by "the other forum?"
Generally speaking, they're talking about http://stonerrocklives.com
, which was also launched in the wake of stonerrock.com, and is run by sleestak. Much respect for them and all they do.--I heard this place was more uptight and how come nobody ever posts porn?
No one -- literally, nobody -- cares if you post porn here. There was one titty thread the day the site went up that got deleted and ever since it's been perceived as giving a shit one way or the other. No one cares. Porn on. No kids or animals.--Somebody posted about watching free movies online, kitchen repair and/or cheap Canadian pharmacies. What should I do?
Don't click ANY links included in posts by spambots. Click the red exclamation point at the bottom right of the post to report it to a moderator, and the spambot and its posts will be deleted as soon as possible.--How do I adjust the clock for Daylight Savings Time?
On the top left of the menu items right under the site banner above, you'll see a link for "User Control Panel." Click it, then go User Control Panel > Board Preferences > Summer Time/DST is in effect. Change the last item as appropriate and you're good to go.--What's it take to get banned from the Obelisk Forum?
It takes being a dick even if you can otherwise help it. See dinger, changeling, etc. Please don't be a dick if you can help it.
Anyone who's got info that should be added they'd like to contribute, or questions about stuff, that'd be fantastic.
