    With more and more member join, it seems that we need a specific helping thread to tell the member how to use this site. Then this is it.

    #Tag Someone:

    To tag someone, somehow you will see the @ + name but nothing happened, here provide the way to do it. When you are going to tag someone in the post, find his profile and enter.

    For example:

    My name is the same with my tag, some to mention me just simply write down with @ + Arise, then I will be tag.

    Another example, I use Jack. ( Thanks Jack >o< )

    You can see jack’s name is not the same with his tag name, simply copy his tag name in the page, use it in the place where you wish to tag him, it will work. This one is to provide member who wish to use tag function but somehow not work.

    Thanks

    Displaying pictures on the site.
    If you do not have an image capture program then you need to get that first.
    There are plenty of free programs out there. Either make a internet search or use one in this list.
    http://listoffreeware.com/list-of-best-free-screen-capture-software/
    or this much shorter list
    http://www.addictivetips.com/windows-tips/5-best-free-screen-capture-software-for-windows/
    Personally I use Screenshot Captor but that can be hard for beginners.

    If you want to share a picture that you captured on your computer then you need to upload the picture on a Picture Hosting Site.
    Many here use https://imgur.com/

    When you are going to post the picture, here are some ways to do so.
    Always use the DIRECT LINK provided for these.

    The bold one is code you can use:

    < img src = ” ” a l t =” ” / >

    With this code, you can have a picture with a directly view in the post also with text, you can use it not just in forum post, also message and activity.

    If you only paste link without file name, it will show as a link line.

    How to make a screen video.
    There are a few sort of free programs just like free image capture programs. Usually a bit of advertisement is somewhere along the way.
    Here a very good list of programs and an all around helpful site for similar stuff.
    http://download.cnet.com/s/video-record-capture/windows-free/?editor-rating=3&user-rating=3
    I use oCam.
    TIP: Always try to download programs from the home site of the developer since it is safer and the programs do not contain extra unwanted features like advertisement or worse.

    To then share that recording here you need to upload it to a site that hosts videos. You-tube is popular but there are more.
    To upload a video from you-tube, simply paste the video link then the video will show in the post. >o<

    *The Paragraph:

    When you are press enter to create a line without text, it will be ignore by link and make your post looks very crowded.

    here you can use a way to prevent this, use some character like ” – ” or ” . ”

    with a post with:

    The Link

    It will looks better then what you have before. like this one.

    *About the Video share:

    Some of Urb game take hours, and most of member don’t have enough time to watch all video, make a small content for your video will help other and increase the willing of watching.

    here is the example:

    Write down the awesome moment for everyone and attract them to see the important part of this game, it will be nice for the member don’t have enough time. >o<

    Here some things that are on a list of mine that should be mentioned here.
    Sadly ran out of time for today. Will work on this later.

    – Mud and Blood HQ explained : How the front page works, Top selection bar drop-downs (Home, Games..), The Forums (how to navigate to and in there), Groups (do not mention private groups), All other features and links (like who is online).

    -First Steps : Registration/Account Creation. Account/Profile management. How “Friends” Work ect..

    – Proper Posting. Posts strait into the front page go into the persons personal account, will get bumped down and are very hard to find again by others making them only a shout like entry.

    Posts into a Forum is a lot better save and reply wise and also has some coding features.
    Important! There is no Preview function and Every EDIT creates a new copy of the whole post in the Front Page that can only be DELETED by the owner.
    PLEASE Delete all excess front page posts through editing yourself so that they do not spam up the front page.
    Sadly we can not change this setting for this site software and will just have to live with it.

    Group posts also display on the front page. You must be a member of a group to post into one.
    Membership Requests usually get accepted but that is not mandatory since groups belong to the person that created them.

    This Help Page is a bit outdated since it was made before the breakdown of the site and the restart. Needs updating.

    New account registration is working again but . . . .

    Glad to see old folks registering. concerning the bans. IF you you go to a webpage that we don’t have on this website (like all the traffic derived by the spammers) more than twice, you will be banned for 5 days. That’s the rule. Don’t go where you shouldn’t 🙂

    Does that mean we can get booted for going into Dive Bars & Strip Clubs?
    Inquiring Minds want to know…

    Andy posted this in the wiki topic thread.

    The wiki is defective, but we can still use it, and get information from it.

    We just have to use it in a different way, go to the wiki page that you want read, then go up with the scroll and click on “view source” then go again down with the scroll, and you will be able to read the coded information, not the best, but still something!

    I created this little video to help, anyway i think that the explanation it’s enough. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7FsJA_Yc3RBR0p5RDNRRlI2Ykk/view?usp=sharing

    I just hope those info are not too much outdated…

    I got a message from Oznat, citing that his account was temporarily locked out. Do we have an official response for such an issue, or do we usually just wait it out until it resolves itself? Last I checked, it seems to take about 5 days.

    Oznat is unbanned .. You don’t just get locked out tho, he got banned because he logged with the wrong user name 😉

    Only urbzz has the power to unban someone here. Your account (IP number) should be free again after 5 days.
    If not then please post here again somehow or use the Discord channel to state what and perhaps why you can not log in here.
