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

Rookie Visitor- 10 posts, 100 minutes
Visitor- 25 posts, 300 minutes
Regular Visitor- 100 posts, 500 minutes
Frequent Visitor- 300 posts, 3,000 minutes
Contributor- 500 posts, 5,000 minutes
Regular Contributor- 1,000 posts, 13,000 minutes

7. And remember, if you have any questions, post them here! Check back to see my answer! :)

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.

At the top of the message board, you'll sse your username, logout button, and my Icon button, and then a Help button.. Then, Below there is a button that says "SEARCH" On it. Type in a username, and then press User Search.

 

Hope I helped!

Here are answers to your questions (I put the people who asked the questions in alphabetical order):

_crazyaqua7_

Welcome to STACKS! I hope you are enjoying it here. :) You can sort of get a prize here. Go to the Summer Reading Challenge,. If you read enough minutes, you can select a prize, like a sample chapter from a book or something.

_enthusiasticviolet1_

You can do a user search on them. Here is a link to the user search. You can get to it by searching a user’s name in the search box and then clicking the “Users” tab when the results pop up.

_iluvpeeta123_

Yes, you have to have the required number of minutes for your rank to change. It seemed to take forever for me to get enough minutes for my rank to change the last time.

_jackblackreading_

Hi! :) I like reading too. The moderator of this board has a theread for book reviews here: Write Your BOOK REVIEWS Here!!

_ocean3126_

Sometimes the system is kind of slow. It looks like you are a visitor now. :)

_trickart3_

l don't really know what I want to be when I grow up. :)

_Twinktoes87_

Maybe it's because you have a lot more minutes that you need.

_sapphiresports4_

The moderator has to approve it. Go to your message board stats on your profile, and click on the "View All Posts". You can see all of the approved posts you have.

_super susi_

That's because their rank is a Contributor or higher. My name is in bold, and yours should be too.

I hope I got all of you! If I didn’t, please tell me, and I will try to get back to you!

         on the top where it says ______SEARCH you type the person's screen name. Exactly how it is or else it won't show up. And that's how you find their profile. Or else if you're on the boards you can click on their user name.Foe example look what you wrote how do I find someones profile? On the left I shows your user name. And on the box you can see the picture of a dolphin. You click on the user name and that goes to someone's profile. In this case it's yours.

Can you write it or something? I would love to read it. I love reading stories on the boards. Maybe you put it in another board. If you type it again and it doesn't show up you should ask the mod. But I would love to read it so try to type it again if you can.

If you want to make it big click on the Font Size and click on how much big you want it, the limit is xx-large this how it will look, the biggest one: HI!! If you want to put a smiley face just click on it a box will show up and you will drag the picture (don't let it go until you put it on a spot.) put it on the  spot you want. If you want to make the picure big click on it. Go on one of the corner, pull it up. Insert Smilies

Hi! I think this will answer your question. If you want to know all of these things go to your profile and MyMessage Board Stats and an the bottom of that box you will see in little letters View All Posts  >
And click on it. You will know that your message has been posted if it's on the list. And you will know if you have replies because it will tell you. It's like this.   Thread  Replies   New   Author   Rating   Latest Post. And under the replies it will tell you you how many replies you have.  It will be after 1or 2 days before it's posted. The latest it can be is 3days. Have any questions just ask me.

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

Rookie Visitor- 10 posts, 100 minutes
Visitor- 25 posts, 300 minutes
Regular Visitor- 100 posts, 500 minutes
Frequent Visitor- 300 posts, 3,000 minutes
Contributor- 500 posts, 5,000 minutes
Regular Contributor- 1,000 posts, 13,000 minutes
Frequent Contributor- 10,000 posts, 30,000 minutes

7. And remember, if you have any questions, post them here! Check back to see my answer! :)

 

 

Be nice to nerds. Chances are you will be working for them.

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~

@asdffdsa about Frequent Contributor requirements:
 
No, it doesn't work like that. You have to exeed the mathimatical amount to go up a rank. A computer isn't going to say "Oh, look, she has a lot of mintues, but not enough posts. Oh well. It balances out."
Besides, I was waiting to get the minutes. My post count wasn't even that much higher than the amount needed, but you DEFFIENELTY  do NOT need 10,000 posts to be a Frequent Contributor. I only have 6,000. And look at my rank.

Hi, welcome to the STACKS!
At the very top of the board, under the bars that say:
 _dragonfangs101_: Logout - My Icon - Help
See Upcoming Chats
All Kids Boards: STACKS Boards: Reading Buzz Board


there is a button that says NEW MESSAGE.
Click on it.
Then write.
NOTE: graphical editor only works on Firefox and Internet Explorer.
:)
hope this helped!
