N00BS GUIDE TO THE FORUMS

Auf Deutsch
En Español

The Oxford English Dictionary defines "forum" as:
Forum/fáwrum/ n
1. A place of or meeting for public discussion.....
3. A court or tribunal


Welcome to the Official Gorillaz Forums! If this is your first forum (as it is for many people): read this throughly, watch others post, and think before posting. If this isn't, kindly read through this and figure out how we operate here. This is a place of lively discussion! Let's make sure it doesn't become a court!

This is the n00b's guide to the forums , the point of this topic is so that there will be no more n00b topics, or repeating of the same thing 20 times for that matter. This is also intended as a little list of common myths and misconceptions.

If you wish to deliberate these points, please put the corresponding number of it, clearly visible, in your post.

18. Murdoc is not dead
19. Russel is not dead
20. Noodle is dead.
21. Please follow forum rules
22. Show Respect
23. Follow Thread rules as well, if it says "NO CHAT" than it means so.
24. English Please, with proper punctuation, and spelling.
25. Keep your sigs small, please. Large sigs kill bandwith, and are a pain.
26. Noodle is a girl.
27. Noodle is not, nor has been, in a romantic relationship with 2D
28. Please keep track requests in PM's

42. Do not make crap topics out of boredom; Use your judgement.
43. If you are new, don't make many topics, if any. Most things that you may ask can be found by searching. More topics don't make you any cooler.

53. Could we please cut down on "Random Chat" topics, please? Even if you're bored...
54. Don't get into and continue fights over pride. Pride doesn't exist online.
55. If you got pwned (or proved wrong) don't act like a jerk, just take the loss and deal with it.
56. Don't get obsessed over the El Mañana video or any similar thing. Don't worry, it's just a cartoon. Damon and Jamie have it covered.
57. If you have nothing better to say, then use the kingdom-of-spam-a-lot.
58. Treat the internet as if it were real life. That goes with respect as well.
59. Do not think that by having an attitude, you are showing maturity.
60. Adress all kong happenings in the...... Kong happenings forum!

*Points 32,33,35,36,37,38 and the inspiration for 34,39,40,41 are accredited to dahaka . Point 51, and the inspiration for point 52 are accredited to Dirty Bird. Point 57 is accredited to Pandemonia. The correction to point 20 is credited to Darkly Blackflame

*HOW TO TEST YOUR SIG WITHOUT ANNOYING PEOPLE/BEING A N00B*
1.Change your sig.
2.Check one of your older posts and look at your sig that way.
2b. If you are newly registered, participate in an intelligent discussion, and do steps 1-2

*HOW TO INSERT IMAGES*
1. Get the image URL. This is crucial, you need a WEB ADRESS, not a HARD DRIVE ADRESS. (e.g. h##p://www.internetsite.com/mypic.jpg , not C:/program files/my pictures/mypic.jpg )
1a. If the image does not have a URL, use Imageshack . or host it by yourself through Yahoo's geocities, or any other webhosting service.
2.

code:
 [IMG]INSERT URL HERE[/IMG]

For example:
[IMG] http://uk.geocities.com/gorillazunderground/jasoncoxbiopic.jpg [/img] Gives you:

(In case you don't know, this is Jason Cox, co-producer of the Gorillaz Albums!)

NOTE: .BMP IMAGES WILL NOT WORK.
NOTE: MAKE SURE THE URL IS ONLY IN THE [IMG] TAGS, NOT ANYTHING ELSE.

*HOW TO RESIZE YOUR SIG IN PHOTOSHOP*
(note, Paintshop Pro is very similar)
1. Select the whole image using the "Select" tool. (it looks like a box with dotted lines)
2. Go to "Transform" and from the drop-down menu select "Scale"
3. Using the arrows, bring your image down to size. (to do this proportionally, hold the "shift" key)



And here's a great video to sum everything up! Made by "lunchtimemama" of the steam forums. Although it is not this forum, everything is almost identical, and everything still applies here. Even if this movie may sound satirical, EVERY BIT OF INFORMATION IN IT IS COMPLETELY TRUE. See it here.

To know is to understand! . Don't just brush through this, know it!

Important Links You should check before you post

KAY?

This guide pwns you. Woot! To eliana.

Also, if you are unfimiliar with terms such as PWNED, 1337, STFU etc, don't annoy people by asking. You'll just prove your n00bishness.

Instead go to http://www.urbandictionary.com/
And simply type in the word you don't understand. Mmmmmmmmmmk?

Geniously, bassman!
You are almost right!
But I don't think that HIP ALBATROS is bad... it's the greate song! And I like the beginning from 2D's favorite film there...
+ "Demon Days" is not good... it's PERFECT ALBUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wink

No, you can say something about your love as to the band members as to the real person.
