to read the rules.
Why Isn't my Question/Quiz/Link/Joke Showing Up?
The listings are published about every 5 minutes, so if you just added something and don't see it in the "Latest" listing, just wait a few minutes. If you click on "My Questions" (or "My Whatever") you should be able to see that your content exists. If it's not there, it means it has been deleted due to you breaking one of the Rules of Conduct, or posting something that was broken, had serious errors, or was gibberish.

How do I add Content?
How can I get a picture (avatar) next to my name?
Click on (in upper right). Once you get there, next to the change picture option they have a browse button. Click that, and search for the picture you want. Make sure that the file extension ends with a lowercase .gif or .jpg. When you have everything set the way you want it, click the continue button. And there you go! You have a brand spanking new avatar!
How can I tell if someone is online?
There are three different ways.
1 Go to the Who's Online page.
2 If you are looking at someone's post, look around by their avatar (the picture by their name). They either have a dot or a sun next to their name. If it's a sun, they're online. If it's a dot, they're offline.
3 Go look at their profile. Underneath their avatar they have a sun there, too. It says offline or online, depending on which one they are.
How do I Change the Look of my Profile?
You can change the colors, background images, fonts, layout, and more. First, go to your profile by clicking "My Profile" in the upper-right. Next, click the button that says "Edit my Theme". This will let you choose an existing theme from the library, or create your own.
