    Unique Username and Usertitle customization

    [​IMG] For Pro Users

    Want to give your username and User Title a unique look ? Follow the instructions to know how to do it !

    First click on your username on the navigation menu.

    Show Spoiler
    [​IMG]


    On the dropdown that appears click on "Personal Details".

    Show Spoiler
    [​IMG]


    Clicking on that will re-direct you to this page known as Personal Details. Here is a Direct link to Personal Details.

    Show Spoiler
    [​IMG]


    Now to describe the options.

    Clicking on the color dropdowns will give you a color picker by which you can choose a color and apply it.

    The Color Picker (open)
    [​IMG]


    "Custom Title" - This is where you put the text that you want to be your custom title. Please note that putting Image Codes will not work in your User Title. Please use text only for best results.

    "Custom Username Color" - Clicking on this dropdown will give you colors to apply to your username.

    "Custom Usertitle Color" - Clicking on this dropdown will give you colors to apply to your User Title.

    "Reset to default" - Clicking on this option will rest your chosen color to the default username color of the theme you are using.

    "Select font type icon" - Clicking on this will bring a dropdown where you can choose a font icon for your username. As this is a font icon, you can choose a color for the icon on the color dropdown at the right.

    "Select server type icon" - Clicking on this will bring a dropdown where you choose custom images as an username icon. As this is a custom made image, you cannot choose a color for the icon.

    Setting your Custom CSS Username

    Show Spoiler
    [​IMG]

    In the red box, you will put the CSS to give a style to your username.

    The green box shows how your username will look with the code. If you used white color text CSS, the "Example" text will be white in color.

    Show Spoiler
    [​IMG]


    The "syntax that will not be valid here" list shows the CSS that will not work in username styling.

    Here is a guide on CSS Styling: w3schools.com Guide.

    Custom CSS Username Guidelines
    • You are free to experiment with the CSS to get a unique style for your username but please practice restraint. Do not use username styles which will have a negative effect on the forum look and other members. Some examples of such username styles would be 1) Using seizure inducing images as your username background image, 2) Using extreme spacing in the letters of your username, etc. Such username styles will be removed by the staff.
    • If your Pro subscription runs out, the code in the CSS box will still apply. Meaning you will still retain the unique username style you had just before your Pro ran out. You will only be able to change it to another username style by getting Pro again. In case you want to revert your username to the default username style after your Pro runs out, please contact an administrator.
    After you are done choosing the look of your username, click on "Save Changes".

    Show Spoiler
    [​IMG]


    After that your username and User Title will appear as you choose it.

    Show Spoiler
    [​IMG]


    If you want to change your username and usertitle look again, repeat the above process.

    • If you want more Username Image Icons or Username Font Icons to be added or
    • Have questions or suggestions about the Custom CSS styling
    Please contact an Administrator : Staff List.

    Becoming a Forum Moderator


    There isn’t really that much to it. The staff of SugoiDesu, are always taking note of the good things that you do to help the growth and expansion of SugoiDesu. When the opportunity arises, when in need of new staff, people will be carefully and thoughtfully selected, and approached about the position.

    Q: What if I think I’ll be an exceptional addition to SD’s staff team? Can I approach the staff about making me a member of their team?!

    A: Whilst, yes, you could. It is not recommended. There is a good chance that this will lessen chances of you getting a position if one were to arise and you were a candidate. Why? It’s somewhat annoying and can be difficult to word a declination of a position without seeming like Hitler. We look equally at everyone when coming to a decision.

    Q: By who is the decision made by?

    A: Not any single one person. Choices are thoroughly discussed amongst the staff, and we come to the conclusion based on the candidate that we believe would be the best for the situation. If you are not chosen, please DO NOT be discouraged. We can assure it is nothing personal or biased, just what we believe is best for both SD and you, the members. Who knows? There may be need for another staff member closer than you think, and you may be picked!

    Keep in mind that our decision is almost always never final. Even if you don't get a chance the first try, you will eventually. Your only job is meeting the criteria to become one accurately.

    Q: What about Global Moderators? Can I become one?!

    A: Not from scratch. If a new Global Moderator is needed, we will pick a member from our current Moderators to fill the position, and then get a new moderator to fill the empty position.

    Note: Whilst SD is still only small, we are not in need of as many staff as would be the case if we gained hundreds of new active members. When and as, SD expands, so will our staff team!

    Also keep in mind that moderator applications still exist. That will be the chance for you to show that you truly meet the criteria.

    As an after note it is still possible for the regular member to just have a few extra permissions. This depends on the situation though, if they are a host for something in a section, they will have the ability to close, delete threads, etc. in said section.

    Hope this clears up any misconceptions. Good luck! :)

    As you all may have noticed, next to your username, alert and message icons, there is something called Keno. This is a currency system that we are implementing here on Sugoi Desu! for a variety of purposes. One of them, as many have already asked and learnt about, is the RP that is making its way to the forum. While it will be used outside of the RP section of the forum, users are to use this currency to purchase items around the forum such including, but not limited to, GFX. It is a very basic form of economy, essentially.

    Essentially, with Keno, you can buy or sell anything that has a price tag on it.

    If you get scammed, please be sure to report the user to us.

    Here’s how to earn Keno:

    • Registering an Account: 1000ლ
    • Logging In: 1ლ
    • Posting a Thread: 10ლ
    • Liked Content (1 Post): 2ლ
