I have registered but still cannot post. What's wrong?
After registering, you will receive an email asking you to confirm your email address. If you do not click on the email link that confirms your email address, you will NOT be able to post.
How can I change my membername?

If you would like to change your membername, please send email [email protected] and include your CURRENT membername and the membername you'd like to change to.  You MUST send this email from the same email address listed on your JustBreastImplants Forum member account.

When I try to post a message, it says my post needs to be reviewed. Why does it need to be reviewed?
In order to keep spam posts off of the forum, we have several filters in place. If you post a legitimate post, and still get the message that your post needs to be reviewed, please know that it will be reviewed by a moderator shortly. Sometimes the spam filters can filter out non-spam posts. Also, spam posts usually contain links, so if you are a brand new member and have posted a link in your post, it's likely it will go to the moderation queue. The filters can't distinguish between spam links and non-spam links.
Why has my post count gone down?
Sometimes the Admin deletes posts if they do not contain relevant content. For example, if you post to someone and say "that was hilarious!", your post will get deleted at some point. This keeps forum "clutter" to a minimum, and it also saves valuable server space from being wasted.
How do I edit my email address and/or password?

What do all of the abbreviations on the forum mean?
Members of internet forums frequently use abbreviations when posting. There are plenty of common abbreviations used, plus some that you may have never heard of. For example, you might see someone use "ps" instead of "plastic surgeon", or "rotfl" instead of "rolling on the floor laughing". If you can't figure out a certain abbreviation, please visit the thread here.
How do I add custom text beneath my membername?

You can specify the text you want to display by editing your profile and entering the text you want in the Custom User Text field. The only thing we ask is that you do not use anything vulgar or inappropriate. Additionally, you may not use urls (links to other sites), or use your custom title as way of promoting another site (of any kind).  If you do, your custom user title will be removed, and you my be prohibited from having using this option in the future. If you are unsure whether or not your custom title is appropriate, you may find one of the member's posts and click on the "report post" image, which looks like this: 

Why have some of the words in my post been censored?

Certain words and websites have been censored. If your posts contain any censored words, they will be blanked-out with astericks (******). DO NOT TRY TO "work around" THE WORD CENSOR.

The same words are censored for all users, and censoring is done by a computer simply searching and replacing words. It is in no way 'intelligent'.

What is a signature for?
After you have registered, you may set your signature. This is a piece of text and/or a picture that you would like to be inserted at the end of all your posts, a little like having headed note paper. Signatures give each member an "identity", and members "recognize" other members by their signature pictures.

You will have the option to include your signature on any posts you make. If you have specified a signature, then the forum will automatically append your signature to any messages you post. You can disable signatures on a per-post basis by un-ticking the 'Show Signature' checkbox when you compose your message.

You may turn the signature on and off on posts you have already made by editing the post and altering the state of the 'Show Signature' option.

You can set your signature by editing your profile.

What is user reputation?
User Reputation in its simplest form is a ranking of your user's benefit to your forum. Its basis comes from the opinions of all of your forum users that choose take part in it.

Users gain and lose reputation based on how their posts are scored by other forum participants. Users with the ability to affect reputation, will either give or take away points by approving or disapproving with a post's content.

User reputation is shown via the following image:  Ivy has a spectacular auraThe more green bars a member has, the higher their reputation.

A few words about the reputations....

Positive reputation should be given to people who post meaningful, helpful, and thoughtful posts. Any post that contributes to a thread in a positive way probably deserves positive reputation. This does not mean that you agree with what was said; the point brought up may be completely opposite to what you believe, but it may be a good point nonetheless, and worthy of a pat on the back. Giving positive reputation to someone because they are your friend isn't a good reason to give positive reputation.

Negative reputation should be given if the person is posting something that detracts from the conversation. If the post is rude, inappropriate, breaks forum rules, etc; these are all good reasons to give negative reputation. If you have a personal grudge with someone, it is not appropriate to give them negative reputation for that reason. Giving negative reputation because you don't agree with what was said is not appropriate use of the reputation system. People are entitled to their own opinions, and just because you don't agree doesn't mean the user was wrong or not contributing to the conversation.

Please don't abuse the reputation system.

How do I give reputation to another member?

You may give a user positive or negative information by clicking on the image. You will find this image at the bottom left side of each member's post. When you click on the image, a shortcut menu opens. Select "I approve" or "I disapprove", then write your comments in the text box. Click "Add to reputation" when you are done.

Can other members see my reputation?

The only thing visible to other members is the number of green images (Asurfael is a jewel in the rough) which denote positive reputation, or the number of red images () which denotes members with reputations the negative numbers (e.g. -1, -50, etc.).

How many reputation clicks can I give each day?

You may leave up to 10 reputation clicks per 24 hour period.  You CANNOT leave continually leave reputation for the same person.  You must give reputation to at least 5 other people before you can hit the same person again.  In other words, if I leave reputation for JaneDoe123, I will have to leave comments for at least 5 other people before I could leave reputation for JaneDoe123 again.

Why is the link to my breast augmentation photos being removed from my posts by Admin?
We do not allow members to post links to their private photos in PUBLIC forums. Anyone (including men) can visit the public forums here , so it isn't prudent to post links to such personal photos in a public forum. If you do not yet have VIP status (access to the private forums), you can PM your link to whoever you wish. However, you should always look at the member's profile you're PMing PRIOR to sending your photo link. Look to see how many posts they have, how long they've been a member. If you don't, you could easily send your link to someone that's joined the forum, but has never posted.
Can my husband/boyfriend post updates for me or ask questions for me after I've had my surgery?
No. Men are not allowed to post on this forum. Members that give their significant others access to their account so that they can post will be banned temporarily at the least.
How do I start a thread/discussion?

Go to the forum that you wish to start your discussion in.  At the top right, you'll see a blue button that says "New Thread" on it.  Click on that button to start your discussion.  A screenshot has been included so that you will know exactly what to look for.

What is the difference between the Basic Editor, Standard Editor, and Enhanced Interface (WYSIWYG) editors?
Basic Editor - Simple text box. With this option, you do not have the ability to use different fonts, different font colors, or smilies. When using this option, you will have to manually type in the code in order for hyperlinks to show up correctly. Standard Editor - With this option, you can easily insert hyperlinks, make photos show up in your posts, change your font color, type, size, use smilies, etc. However, if, for example, you want to use the Verdana font in a blue color, you will not see the actual blue font until you view the post (after it's posted). WYSIWYG / Enhanced Interface - WYSIWYG stands for "What you see is what you get". This is pretty much just like the Standard Editor, with the exception that you will actually SEE how your font colors, sizes, pictures, etc., look BEFORE you post.

The only downside to the "Quick Reply" box is that you don't have the options of using most of the smilies, Otherwise, the Quick Reply option is good to use (and fast too).

You MUST click on a "Quick Reply" button in order to use the "Quick Reply" option. If you don't click on one of the "Quick Reply" buttons, and you just scroll to the bottom of the page, you will not be able to type your message in the box.

 

What is the "Thanks" button?

In each member's post, you will see a "Thanks" button.  If someone posts something that you find helpful, you can click the "Thanks" button, instead of replying and just saying "thanks" in the reply.  The thanks button looks like this:

Thanks

I accidentally posted the same thread more than once. How do I delete one of them?
Please contact the Admin via PM or via a post in the Forum FAQ forum, and we will delete the one of the threads. Additionally, if Admin comes across duplicate threads, we will delete them whether you ask us to or not.
How do I find my posts and/or threads I've started?

How do I insert an image into my post?

For the most part, your posts will contain plain text, but on occasions, you may want to emphasize certain words or phrases by making them (for example) bold or italic.

You may use vB Code: a special set of tags which you can use to produce the most popular text-effects. vB code has the advantage that it is very simple to use, and is immune to malicious javascripts and page layout disruption.

You may also use smilies, which allow you to use small icons to convey emotion, and the [img] code, which allows you to add pictures to your message.  You may also add images to your posts by clicking on the Insert Imageicon located in the "quick reply" box or in the reply window.  Because this forum does not allow you to upload pictures, you will need to upload your photo to another site, such as Photobucket.com.  Then, you will come back to this forum, click on the image link, and insert the link to your photo.  You may also insert the link to your photo between the image tags (i.w. [img]linktomyphotohere[/img].

For more information about vB code, click here.

NOTE:  Photobucket.com will not allow images containing nudity.  It doesn't usually take them long to find out and remove such photos.  If you would like to show before/after photos, please set up a PRIVATE group at http://photos.yahoo.com.

What are thread subscriptions and how do I subscribe/unsubscribe to threads?

A thread subscription allows you to keep up with a thread (or many threads) that are of high interest to you.  To subscribe to a thread, click on the "Thread Tools" button at the top of the thread, then click on the link that says "Subscribe to this thread".  You will then have to select the Notification Type.

  • No email notification - With this option, you will not receive emails when new posts are posted to your high interest thread(s).  You will need to go to your UserCP to view your subscribed threads.  You can click on threads that have new posts.  This is how "No Email Notification" works.
     
  • Instant Email Notification - With this option, you will receive an email that tells you WHO has replied to the thread, the TITLE of thread, as well as the CONTENTS of the new post.
     
  • Daily Updates by Email - With this option, you'll receive ONE daily email that will show you all of the updates the thread has had for the day.
     
  • Weekly Updates by Email - This is the same as the daily updates by email, except you will recieve one update per WEEK.
     

How do I delete subscriptions?

Go to your UserCp and click on List Subscriptions.  There will be a box on the far right side of the page at the very top.  If you check this box, EACH thread subscription on THAT page will be selected.  At the bottom of the page, you can opt to DELETE those subscriptions, OR you may update the subscription type.  For example, if all of your threads are set to "weekly updates", you can change it to another type such as "instant email notification".

NOTE:  You can only delete ONE PAGE of subscriptions at a time.  For each page of subscriptions that you have, you will have to select all of the subscriptions on each page, then delete or update them that way.
