Reading Buzz Board!

Announcements


Hello future and past friends! WELCOME to the Buzz Board! I'm Katie, the moderator for the Buzz Board. If you've been around awhile, I used to moderate several message boards, including Dear America, Baby-sitters Club, Graphix, and Flashlight Readers way back when. . .! It's great to meet you and I look forward to getting to know you all!

Here are a few basic rules:

- no last names, names of schools or cities (but states are okay);
- age/grade is okay, but no birthdays;
- no being mean, rude, or cursing;
- no posting your email address or links to other websites;
I hope you all enjoy the boards! We want them to be a safe, fun place!!

Welcome to the STACKS all new members!! :) lf you need friends, reply here, and l will try to friend you and send you shout-outs.
     lf you have any questions about the STACKS, ask them here, and l will answer them. Here is some basic stuff:
 
  1. To friend someone, go to their profile (you can see their username to the left of the messages) and click the add as friend button. You won't be their friend until they accept your friend request though.
  2. lf your message doesn't show up yet, that's because the moderator hasn't approved it yet. lf it doesn't show up in 24-48 hours, you can ask the moderator about it.
  3. Read the rules. (No last names, birthdays, bad language, or citys).
  4. To change your icon, click the "My Icon" button when you are on the message boards.
  5. To change the font and color, make sure you are in Graphical Editor, and then you can experiment with the things on this bar (it's above where you are typing your message):

Change the Font Color
Cut (Ctrl-X)Copy (Ctrl-C)Paste (Ctrl-V) Bold (Ctrl-B) Italics (Ctrl-I)Underline (Ctrl-U)Strikethrough Insert Smilies Insert a Horizontal Line Insert a HyperlinkInsert an Image Align LeftAlign CenterAlign RightOutdentIndentNumbered ListUnOrdered List Check Spelling

6. Here are the requirements for making your rank go up:

STACKS rank requirements

Do you know what makes me smile? Facial muscles.

Yay!! You found the white text!! What should we do to celebrate? How about sending me a friend request?

96% of people would die in a coma if they saw Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace all crash at the same time. Put this in your signoff if you are one of the 4% who would die of laughter!

What are you doing down here? You should be looking at what I actually have to say. ~Rachel~

Okay, I'm not new, but my thing still says Contributor. I have 1,340 posts and 14,935 minutes online. So why am I still a Contributor when I should be a Regular Contributor? <------Maybe it's 15,000 minutes instead (you put 13,000)?

This will really help people! And you'll get so many friends from this!
 

Mo read me out of Inkheart...

Did he read you out as well?

 

Yeah, I went to Hogwarts...

But then I became part of the Resistance.

 

My best friend is Caroline Wu...

Who's yours?

 

Matilda was able to move things with her eyes only...

I could, too.

 

Well then...

What's your story?

This is just a note concerning the ranks.
 
Right now I am a Frequent Contributor but I only have about 6,600 posts and around 26,000 minutes. And I'm not entirely sure that minutes and posts are the only requirements for moving up in ranks.
 
Haha, I've been on here for almost four years and I still don't know for sure. Maybe an Admin could finally clear this up, or possibly a moderator..?
:-D

l know you need 13,000 minutes, because that's the number l needed to become a Regular Contributer. I did hear that the system can be slow in updating your rank, so it might update it in a little while.

Errr... Frequent Contributor isn't quite right, as you see, I'm a frequent contributor, and it's actually 5,000 posts and 35,000 minutes.

Once you become a contributor, your username becomes bolded on the boards.
