This topic will serve as a FAQ for TESOF. Any questions that are normally asked by members can be found here. This is for TESOF, its functions, and account-related issues.

If you have any more questions, feel free to post in this topic.

FAQ
---
Q: Can I change my username?
A: Username changes are no longer allowed. There are exceptions, however, if you used your real name and wish to provide an alias instead. Users with inappropriate names may also have a change, though in most cases it will not be optional. If you need your username changed and fall into either of these categories, send a PM to Tecca with the username you want to use verbatim.
---
Q: How do I add a signature?
A: Signatures can be added after you have posted 5 times. You will find the link in your Profile Settings underneath your username.
---
Q: Can images be added to signatures?
A: Images cannot be added to your signature. There are several reasons for this, some of which include keeping topics focused on content, keeping page-load fast, and keeping inappropriate images out of the forum. That doesn't mean that text can't look great though, so feel free to experiment with MyCode to make a neat text-based signature. You may also add images to your profile page.
---
Q: Where can I advertise my TESO-related website or forum?
A: At the top of the page you'll find a drop-down called Info. Within this, you will find the TESO Directory. Feel free to submit your website there!
---
Q: Can I advertise my guild?
A: You may create a guild page to be added to our Guild List. A guild page has a dedicated spot to place your website link. Keep in mind that as of right now, this is the only place where guilds may be advertised (other than within your signature). Posting about your guild to recruit members anywhere else in the forum is not allowed, unless it is in one of the stickied topics found in the alliance-specific forums.
---
Q: I make videos, can I plug them shamelessly?
A: You may post links to your creations within the Fan Creations subforum in the section named, The Blend. We ask that if you plan to link a lot of stuff, that you keep your thread count to a reasonable minimum.
---
Q: What does the + sign underneath avatars mean?
A: The plus sign (+) and the number that follows it shows how many "likes" your posts and topics have received. You can like a persons post by clicking on the "+ Like" button at the bottom-left of their post. You cannot like your own posts, however.
---
Q: What is a Contributor?
A: A Contributor is someone that has helped TESOF in their own way; A selfless individual that positively boosts our community in various ways. Those that actively help our site are asked if they want to become Contributors. Perks include a larger PM inbox size, a colored username, and a hidden forum that only Contributors and those on the TESOF Team can view. Contributors are not to be confused with Moderators.
---
Q: My topic title is misspelled/needs to be changed. How do I do that?
A: Use the report button in the first post of your topic and tell us what you'd like it to be changed to.

I have only one question and maybe it should be added here, what in the lovely history of Tamriel does the "+" under the avatar means?
I still don't get it Speechless

Guilds need to be approved before they're added to the list. Yours is there now.

I would suggest creating a signature such as mine or Tecca's that provide a link to your guild page, along with a little bit of information about what the guild is going to be about.

Don't forget to add some flare too! ;)

Well, I guess here is a good place to post my question rather than making a new topic.

Are members allowed to submit articles for the articles page and if so what is the process said article goes through to be posted onto the articles page. Thanks in advance, I have some present and future works I'd love to try and share with the TESOF community if possible.

Hey Shintome! Thanks for the good question (I'll get that added into the FAQ later as well).

Yes, members are allowed to submit articles. At the moment we don't have any guidelines in place, but I'll see about getting something up regarding member submissions. For now I'd say to see the quality of our current articles and go from there.

We currently do not have a moderation queue on articles, so they'll be posted right away. If, however, we believe the quality of an article is not up to a certain standard, we'll likely have it moved to the TESO General Discussion forum.

I'll have a chat with the team on getting some guidelines regarding articles. You're free to submit your work and we'll take a look at it when it's posted.

Thanks!

That's a really good idea, it encourages users to make useful contributions instead of spamming crap like a 10 year old to get their post count up. By my number of likes I'm clearly useless though...
