    Hi everyone,
    Thought I would get some commonly seen questions answered where everyone (hopefully :rolleyes: ) will see.

    Q: Where/how do I create a sig?
    A: You can find this option in the User CP. To access your user CP, simply click the link, located (typically) at the top left of your screen (see below)
    [​IMG]

    Once in the User CP, you can access your Signature and Avatar options by clicking the following links:
    [​IMG]


    Editing your signature is very simple. You will see a text box, type what you would like to appear in your signature into the box, and hit the "Save Signature" button. You should be good to go!

    It is typically good practice to limit your signature to 10 lines or less, just so there isn't too much clutter when viewing a thread. Unlike other forums, we do not allow HTML/VB markup in the signature, this prevents pictures, links, etc from appearing.

    Edit: This is an excerpt from Jon, the Administrator of the boards

    Editing your Avatar: If you would like your own, personal avatar, follow these steps:
    Find or create a picture that you would like to appear under your screen name. The guidelines for a signature are consistent with the forum policies, no offensive content, and definitely NO pornographic material.

    With that said, you will very likely have to re-size this image so it will work with the forum. If you do not have a better picture editing software suite available to you, you can open up MS Paint (win XP users: Start -> programs -> accessories -> paint), and resize the image. A good size is 80x80, although the forum may have different limits.

    Now that you have found/prepared your image, you can now put it up! Select the "Use Custom Avatar" radio button, and then upload by whichever method you prefer, there are two.
    The first option allows you to copy/paste the internet address of a picture (Right click -> properties). As long as the picture is compressible enough, the forum should accept the image. The other option is to upload one from your computer. If you have a graphic located on your hard drive, prepare it by resizing, and then click the "Browse" button. Locate your image, and hit the Save button. Once this is complete, click the "Save Changes" button. Your avatar should now be ready to go!


    Q: I tried doing that! I can't find these options! What is going on?
    A: If the options pictured above are not showing up for you, chances are you are a new user. New users will gain access to these privileges after they have reached 50 posts. If you are past 50 posts, and still not able to access these features, contact the administrator using the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the page. If you have very recently reached 50 posts, it may take a moment for the system to recognize the change in access rights. Another trouble shooting tip is to log out of your account, then log back on. The system typically does not pick up on the status change until after one relogin. Please be patient!

    Q: I am over 50 posts, and have enabled both my signature and avatar. I am still not able to see them! What is wrong?
    A: There is a link under your User CP titled "Edit Options". Chances are, the avatar/signature feature(s) are disabled there. Often times users are asked about these preferences when registering for a forum, and sometimes people will disable them thinking they are unnecessary, or not knowing what they are. You can edit your preferences there. You may also have to log out, then log back in for the system to pick up on your new status.

    Q: I am far away from 50 posts. How do I get so many?!
    A: Whatever you do, do NOT spam, or make rubbish posts to achieve a post count of 50. This is certainly frowned upon, and can result in a ban. All an avatar does is give you a small picture by your name. Just take your time, give useful input, and soon enough you will have it! Be patient :)

    Q: I see some people with animated avatars. When I try and add one, I get an error message, what gives?
    A: TW has disabled the use of animated avatars for the sake of bandwidth. People who have already put an animated avatar up are allowed to retain them. Once they change it, they lose animated avatar privileges.

    Q: Why is there a 2 line limit for signatures?
    A: TW has limited sigs to 2 lines because they take up too much space, and users were making signatures in excess of 15-20 lines. Members were getting fed up having to scroll through 50% sig just to read a 2 line response.

    Q: I can't seem to register for TW using my AOL account, what is up?
    A: See this thread: http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=25528

    Q: How to I report a bad or offensive post/poster?
    A: This is an often overlooked feature, but there is a button at the bottom left of every post on the forum (not made by yourself) that allows you to report an offensive post. You can find it as seen below:

    [​IMG]

    Upon clicking this button, you will be shown a screen with a text box. Please help us by giving a brief reason why this post is a "bad" one. An example of a good reason would be:

    "The post contains obscene language."

    Obviously "offensive" content is subjective, the moderators/administrators will review each reported post as they come and deal with each separately.


    If you would like to report a bad poster, the process is the same. You can flag offending posts, and/or you could send an e-mail with a reason of concern to the administrators at the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the page. The "Contact Us" link will direct you to the administrator, the "Report bad post" link will send an e-mail to all administrators/moderators of the board.

    Q: Under my User CP, I see something called "Referrals." What are these?
    A: This is when a user joins the board and inputs your screen name as the person who referred them to the board.



    Q: I want to post pictures in my thread, I have no clue how to go about doing this, any advice?

    A: Sure! Provided you know how to take pictures (preferrably with a digital camera) and get them on your PC, here is what you need to do.

    1. With your pictures on your computer, please ensure they are sized appropriately (800x600 is a good resolution). Also ensure they are in a web-friendly format, such as .jpg, jpeg, gif, (and less common .png). RAW photo data, or BMPs are NOT encouraged, as they are uncompressed, and take up a lot more space.
    2. After resizing and compressing (into .jpg or .gif), upload your photos to some sort of host. If you do not have your own, personal web space, I suggest using free photo uploaders such as http://imageshack.us, http://tinypic.com or http://www.photobucket.com
      These sites offer free hosting for your photos, as well as instructions on how to access them through other sites.
    3. When inside your thread, click the "insert picture" button using the editor.
      [​IMG]
      A pop up window will appear, asking you for the "URL" of your picture. If you are using your own webhost, insert the address of your picture. If you are using a free uploading site, such as photobucket, or imageshack, insert the URL that was provided to you.
    4. If you inserted the URL correctly, the image should show up when you hit "OK."
    Q: What are the policies on sharing videos, etc?
    A: DO NOT post any AV piracy links. Youtube and streaming videos are fine, but do not post methodologies or other information on how to rip off other peoples property. See this thread:

    Q: Why is my post count "frozen?" I frequently make posts, but my post count won't go up!
    A: Posts are only counted in non-"social" forums. Posts made in Odds & Ends, Rants & Raves, etc. do NOT count towards your post count. This is to discourage "spamming."

    Q: Why can't I edit my posts? (OR) Why do I not have an "edit" option when posting?
    A: New users are not allowed to delete posts. Once you have achieved a non-new user status (after 50 posts [takes a log out/log in to reset]) you are allowed to edit your posts. The idea behind this is to think about what you are posting, and have some accountability for your action. This also allows us to manage "bad egg" posters, especially advertisers/spam users.

    Q: I've noticed when I reached "xx" the "status," or "title" under my name changed! What are all the "rankings" by post count?
    A:

    Q: Why was my _____ post deleted? I don't think I have violated any TW policies. Is there anyone I can contact about this?
    A: TBH, it is difficult to determine why ____ post was deleted, or by who after the fact. We ask that you ask yourself the following before making a post, or attemtping to contact us:
    - Was my post offensive to other users? Simple: Did you "personally attack" any other members? Even a sarcastic, off-color comment can be mis-interpreted sometimes. It is the internet, and sarcasm, etc are not easily conveyed
    - Did I quote a post that is now deleted? If this is the case, we (more or less) have to remove subsequent posts quoting the original content. This is unfortunate, but is obvious as to why.
    - Did I post a competitor link, or reference a competitor's website and/or name? TW reserves the right to delete/remove any posts that promote competition. This is a privately owned message board, and TW is a business.
    - Did I try and get creative, and get around the language filter? This most commonly occurs with the word E-bay, but bad words and other censored words are not permitted in any form, edited, bleeped out or not.

    If you still have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me through my profile (click on my name!). I have an "open-door" policy, and it will remain so until/unless that "privilege" is abused. If you have questions or concerns that I cannot answer, feel free to post a thread in the TW Questions/Comments sub-section, or contact the admins directly using the "Contact Us" link at the bottom right corner of the page.

    Q: How do I check the threads I've posted in for replies and responses or activity?
    A: On the top left area of every forum page, there's a "User CP" link. That's a splash page for your personal activity.

    If you aren't seeing the posts show up, you need to go to "Edit Options" --> Messaging & Notification --> Default Thread Subscription Mode.


    If it's set to "Do Not Subscribe," it's a good idea to turn it on, and to the level that you're interested in. If you like a daily e-mail summary of any threads you've participated in, you can do that, too. I personally don't recommend that, especially if you're going to post in any high volume forums (like General Pro, or Racquets). I use "No email notification" and check my subscribed threads through User CP when I'm on
    :smile:


    Q: There's a poster who I simply can't stand. How do I ignore them?
    A: Ignoring users is simple, but there are some caveats. To ignore, click the user's name --> View User Profile --> Add user to ignore list. All posts made by that user will now be invisible, but quoted posts from that user will still appear.

    Q: How come my post in the For Sale/Trade section of the forum isn't showing up?
    A: The For Sale/Trade section of the forum is a filtered section. This means that any and all posts made in the FS/T section are reviewed and need to be approved before showing up on the site. This discourages competitors coming into the TW boards and selling off their stock. Unfortunately, this also causes a delay in the posts reaching the FS/T subforum! There is a sticky in the FS/T that also discusses this. The FS/T section of the site is a privilige, not a right, although this solution isn't the most elegant, there needs to be some regulations due to the nature of the business.

    Q: I'm not a competitor, and my post still isn't showing up! What is going on?
    A: If you are selling new, unused, or near new (this is up to the FS/T filterer to decide) your post will NOT be approved. This is to discourage the undermining of TW sales. No dealers/spam allowed. FS/T posts need to stay in the FS/T forum. FS/T posts in any other section of the website (this is mainly a problem in the Racquets sub-forum) will be deleted without explanation. This is your warning.

    Q: I remember there being an older version of this board? Is there any way to access these posts?
    A: At this time, there is no way to view the threads that were located on the OLD board(s). You can, however, view the archives once the board was moved over to VBB. See this thread: http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=38202

    Q: How to I get in touch with TW? I have a question/concern!
    A: This is quoted by the TW Staff:
    Q: Does Tennis Warehouse take paypal? I don't have a credit card!
    A: Yes, as of March 2006, TW takes paypal as a form of payment.

    Q: I think there is something missing from this FAQ, What can I do to get it in here?

    A: Simple, just leave a response in this thread with a suggestion! If there is a good reason to put it in the FAQ, it will go in the FAQ! Please note this is the General TTW FAQ, not the FAQ for a specific sub-forum. If you would like a FAQ in a specific sub-forum, and there is not one, I can also take suggestions by e-mail. Feel free to send me one through my profile :)

    Is it possible to make a FAQ for the O&E subforum? Most of those threads are one-liners anyway so I don't think it would take long.

    If you don't have the time, just email me and I could type it up and email it back to you, since I have lots of spare time lately:|

    Is there a certain number of times if bad posts are reported that automatically get the thread deleted, or does it depend on the moderator who is currently logged in?

    Both. If we see a thread is going downhill with no chance of returning to a regular discussion, the thread will be deleted. We do not "automatically" delete any threads.

    Private messaging is not enabled on TW at all for any users. This is so other resellers and competitors are not allowed to solicit/advertise privately on our boards.

    Can you please sticky this thread in the Odds and Ends section, the Juniors section, and the Tennis Tips sections. Apparently, no one can find it here.

    As much as i like this boadr and agree with many of the regulations i think it's ridiculous Private Messaging is not allowed on the board.

    Why is it rediculous there are no PM allowed? This board is owned by TW whose primary business is selling new merchandise. The educational and informational sections only add to the users experience on their site to promote and encourage more business for them. They started the message boards which obviously are a huge success and very popular in the worldwide tennis community.

    If they allowed a PM function on this board, it would allow people in the same business as TW to make sales to potential TW customers.

    You can always email someone and more than likely they subscribe to AIM or YIM and you can create a community if you want to IM.

    The instruction section should be about learning and improving, not childish boast-feasts. While there is some minor instruction in that thread, it is primarily filled with social miscellaneous talk. It should have been moved a long time ago. If Rickson is going to cut out just because his thread, which was posted in the wrong section to begin with, was moved then he needs to emotionally invest himself in more important things in life.

    I've a question about the link from profile about instant messaging to your email address. Does this still work? Because I am usually logged into TW and my instant messaging host at the same time, but it still always shows, "not online right now" message. Thanks in advance for your reply>>Journey

    How do you extract lines for a quote from some previous message. I hate to respond to long text because I end up repeating the whole thing. Thanks very much.

    check it out and let me know what you think of it.. its an eyeopener.

    All of the above, after "quote" is in grey tone. Here is how it came out:

    you have to make sure that you have the tags in place, one at the beginning and one at the end to match. You can take out everything you want except [ quote ] and [ /quote ] - without the spaces. As long as you leave the tags intact, the part you are quoting will be shaded grey. :)
