Ways To Simply Make Your Life on Naruto-Boards Easier
A Small Guide

- Don't Post Anything Insulting. If you have a suggestion PM it to me.
- I made this to help fellow NB members who may need it.
- You can read How to give your sig a link Guide too



Screen-Shots
Classic Style:
Step 1. Find what you want to take a picture of
Step 2. Press Ctrl on your key board
Step 3. Press Alt while holding Ctrl
Step 4. While you are holding those two keeps press Print Screen
(Can't Locate "Print Screen"? It's normally at the top right hand corner of the keyboard.)
Step 5. You may now release those three keys. Now open paint.
Step 6. Paste, Then Save, Then Upload.

For some computers
- Just pressing Print Screen works.
So Press Print Screen and do step 5 & 6

How to Paste.
Edit>Paste
Press Ctrl then press V
(Note: You have to hold Ctrl while you're pressing v)



PMing Links:
When you pm a link with out using the "Link Tag" the link will often appear broken.
Things that will break when PMing if you don't use the "Link Tag"
(This applies to Private Messaging Only)
- Email Addresses
- Images (You cannot receive images when PMing)
- Links

So how do you not break the link?
Step 1. Click on this button ->
Step 2. This should appear in your pm

Step 3. Insert link between:

(Note: Make sure you use http:// otherwise the link will not work.)
Step 4. Title IT. Insert Title Between:




PMing Images
- You CAN'T so don't.

Alternate way of PMing Images.
Follow steps to PMing links and when inserting the link put the direct link to your image.



PMing Emails
- You'll just have to put your email.
The other person should know that the link will be broken and that they'll have to close the spaces using the Backspace or Delete button.



Uploading Good Quality Images
When saving on your computer go to
File > Save As > Save As PNG
Example On Saving PNG
(Note: You can't use a PNG extension when you're uploading your avatar)

Then upload on your photo hosting site (or whatever you want to call it)
Some Image Hosting Sites
Image Shack
Photobucket
Tiny Pic

(I use Photobucket)



How to link up a picture:
You know when you click on a picture and it takes you to some site?
Don't know how to do that?
Well lets see....

Step 1. Follow all the steps for not breaking a link.
Step 2. So once you have this:

Step 3. Insert IMG Tag:

Step 4. Insert Direct Link:

Step 5. Insert Link:

Step 6. Post

Or For Steps 3 & 4
Just insert (paste) the IMG Code. (It should already have IMG Tag)

If you want that effect in your signature the same principle applies.


How to change your Character Selection Screen and Battle Screen:
Step 1. Go to Naruto Arena
(Log in or Register if you don't already have an account)
Step 2. Got to custom Back Grounds
(Read the instructions.)
Step 3. Follow Instructions.
(Note: Make sure you change the Background Type to "Custom Background")

So this is what it should look like: For Battle Background it's also "This must be either a JPG, PNG or SWF file."
Note: I underline important things in red


Uploading Avis
They must be a JPG file.
No larger than 75x75
If you're freaking about about not seeing your avi when you change it,
1. Go to your profile
2. Press F5

Terms That Are Thrown Around Too Much With Out Knowing
A Small Dictionary

Newbie - Someone who is new to something. They are willing to learn and improve upon mistakes. They may or may not have made a mistake. (NEWBIES can be annoying)
Noob, N00b - Some who knows little and has no will of learning more. They scam/hack accounts to take praise for something they did not do. (Scammers, Hackers, Rippers, Ect)
Flammer - Someone who insults/offends anyone intentionally.
Spammer - Someone who posts useless posts. Just to annoy members and/or increase their post count. This includes people who do not follow rules of a topic, forum, ect. Also they double post or multiple post in a row. Spam actually covers many areas.
(Note: Really, post count doesn't mean ANYTHING)

So try to use those words with wisdom now.


People Who Irritate People
No Joke

Back Seat Moderators - People (normal members) who act like a moderator but really have no power.
A lot of N-B members to do this, even though they may not realize it.
I mean I understand you're trying to be a good member, but don't insult the moderators by trying to be one.
Bumpers - Bumpers are people who post nonsense to keep there topic moving. Normally it says "Bump" thus the title Bumper.
Now what most bumpers don't know is that you're only allowed 1 bump every 24 hours.
Horrible CnCers - People who rate pieces of work who don't leave a CnC when asked.
Give constructive criticism



Hey Guess What?
WHAT?
When someone posts a topic that is spam or against the rules, well everyone who posts there is a spammer unless it is a moderator.
REALLY? OH MY GOSH, NO WAY
Wanna Know Why?
Because not only are they gonna say something like
"This is spam blah blah blah" or whatever.
Well, they're only adding to the spam. So instead of Backseat Moderating just don't post at all.
If you really have the urge to post then PM the person. Don't keep the topic alive by posting. Then if you really want to, report it to a moderator.


Something Amazing!

a Noob is an annoying brat.
Kinda like me.

Though something you could add to the description of N00b
"They claim to have been playing this game since 2005" XD

Very nice!

This will definately help other members, and it should be stickied. Someone reading this guide can easily become a better member of naruto-boards.com. Your points are valid, and I love your point of view on backseat mods. I always say to myself "What buisness do they have telling someone the rules as they break them?
To sum it all up, nicely done, and Im very glad you posted something like this. Thank you so much for trying to benefit the community, and if you need any help or anything along those lines, please contact me via pm or MSN messenger. (kyubi-coolman@hotmail.com)
