Welcome to BFME2H!
Hi there! Welcome to BFME2H! You can do anything you want at BFME2H! The only limit is your imagination! (but not really). The first step to foruming is to remember the Code of Conduct. When you signed up, you were asked to read it, but you probably just clicked yes without reading it. Anyway, take a glance at it and briefly view it, and get the hang of the rules.

Posting
So, you've read around the forums and now you want to start posting, eh? Remember that this forum is not chat room, and don't post stuff or abbreviate like 'u', 'y?', 'c u l8ter', and such. Also use proper grammar on the forums, or some of the forumers might insult you, called 'flaming' on these forums. If you are not a native speaker of English, most people will be leniant, but try and post the best you can.

Topics
I suggest you introduce yourself before you start a topic. If you've got a comment or so to post that doesn't really deserve it's own discussion thread, post it in The Bree Bash, BFME2H's Off Topic Thread. Remember that The Bree Bash is not a spam thread, and merely a topic where the topic being discussed changes.

BBCode and HTML
BB Code is a coding language that is used on these forums. It can be used to make text bold, italicized, and more. You can view the list of BB Codes here. HTML is the same language that is used to make websites. HTML is to be used sparingly, and to usually enhance topics with tables or headers. A great site for learning HTML is W3 Schools. Remember not all HTML tags enabled.

Signatures
To edit your signature, go to My Accout -> Edit Signature. Images and HTML are not allowed in signatures. You can view the guide on signatures.



Staff
Every HG site has a particular set of staff that work with it. Their jobs include moderating the forums, adding news and content to the site, administrating ladders, and other jobs. This site's staff are:

EnemyofJupitor
Site Director
EoJup at hotmail dot co dot uk

Sir Hugh
Site Director
sirhugh15 at gmail dot com

Appreciated Former Staff:

You might have noticed some of the staff's names are in different colors. There are 3 main levels of staff. A Seraph is the site director of a site. They supervise the site, and have other particular duties. An Angel is a staff member who may be responsible for an entire section of the site. They may also responsible for posting news and moderation. A Cherub is a staff member who may be responsible for moderation, news, and adding content to the site.

At the BFME2H forums, the staff colors are as follows:
seraph: #D2691E
angel: #D11B1B
cherub: #008008
forumer: #545528
vip: #2D42B3

There are also a few other groups of staff. The FMT, or Forum Moderation Team, oversees the forums, bans and unbans, and how they are run. The FMT are:

Crazed Ewok
Shelper
Shanks13
David

There are also the Halos/EXCO, who are at the top of the HG ladder. They are responsible for making new heavens, and deciding important HG decisions. They are:

Elpea
GillB
SpineMan
Jayhawk
Zen
Socvazius

The owners are the people who actually own HG. They are also responsible for HG's finances and legal work. They are:

SpineMan
Zen
Reckless Rodent
Jayhawk
Draco
Socvazius

Other staff:
An HG Alumnus is an ex-staff member who has contributed to HG and given an honorary title.
There are also special site maintenance 'angels', without a forum account that upgrade galleries, and duties like that.


FAQ
Can I be staff?
Staff are chosen when they are needed, and if they have the proper qualifications. Don't ask to be staff. If they want you, they'll ask you.

I want my thread to be stickied!
Ask one of the moderators of the forum the thread is in, and they will decide.

I can't reply to a thread.
The thread was closed by a moderator, and no new replies are accepted.

What happens if I break the code of conduct?
It's up to the moderators. If it's minor, they'll give you a warning, and then ban you if it happens again.

I guess they all either quit, moved to other heavens, or got promoted. None went to hell.

Could have like TWH has with their newbie guide- check it out. It's like an overview of their forums, too, and is in both the baths and the gen. discussion.

I don't see the one in the baths, but the one is the Gen. Discussion would be good to have for the newbies who don't read the FAQ on the site.

Mr. OHPicklaIO- I don't care where you come from, on the internet you're on level pegging with everyone else. When you post on these forums, you do so under these rules, exactly as you agreed to when you registered your account here. I strongly suggest you re-read them, as trolling is frowned upon there, and there will be consequences next time you post such an attack.
Consider this an unnofficial warning.

1. Where the Hell is EoJ being racist?... I don't see any comment in his post that would be classified as racist... And also, I just feel like saying that I'm really tired of some "races" complaining that every single foul comment made to them is a racist one......... Sorry if that came out wrong, it's just that I have a friend at my school who takes just about every negative comment about him as a racist comment...
2. It doesn't seem like Catabre would do that...

I think you went of on some tangent... And in any case, personally I don't care if you're white, black, gray, yellow, pink, purple, blue, red, orange, brown, or green.. you're still a Human...
