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

the dot tminator at yahoo 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.

If you think it does then you have racism on the brain... Personally my three favorite colors are black, gray, and white.. all of equal value... (Plus they're the colors of the Crunian flag ...)...

Any reasons for those colors?...
Well, Orondi are stone Elves, so they have black and grey.
Arildi are sea Elves so they have blue.
Melildi are Forest Elves so they have green.
The Peridrim are Eldani, and so they are part Elves, and Gold is Elvish. They have gold (Sun) warding off black (Darkness).
Nostam is a country of men, and some of them are of the Sea Men, from Andaenuin, and so blue for the sea and white to represent the light of good.

OHPicklaIO is banned by request of EnemyofJupitor who got called away before he could complete it himself.

Let me see:
Trolling
Spamming
Trying to get another forumer banned
All on a brand new account.

This is an end to the brief HG career of OHPicklaIO. If it's a smurf, I suggest the offender send an email of confession to the local seraphs because Zen will find you fairly quickly anyway.

Oh hell, just saw this. Pickla is Dedonus's brother. You can IP check and you'll see that we are different. His IP should be different from Dedonus's becasue they have different computers. Dedonus will testify to that. You might want to ban his other account which is called Pickla.

At one time I used Pickla/Dedonus's computer back in March of 07 when they shared it so it showed that we all had the same IP.

Edit: More Spam from Pickla.

His other account was called OhioStateBucks, I hate the Buckseyes..... Michigan ftw! ^_^

Thank God! At least your brother (Dedonus) actually contributes to the community.

Flippant remarks will get you banned again. You don't play basketball, your in marching band.
