Well, I'm more of a watcher than a participator in the Scrubs forum, but one thing I've noticed is that a lot of the threads being started are short questions which could be answered in a few posts, and don't really need an entire thread. So, feel free to let this drop off the page if the idea doesn't appeal to you guys, but I give you the General Q&A Thread, for all questions Scrubs or TV.com related, big or small!
Feel free to post here and see if everyone can help you out. Enjoy =D
FAQ BORROWED FROM AND WRITTEN BY SUGAH66 =) Slightly edited, to be relevant to this forum.
Answers to Frequently Asked Questions:
1) How do I increase my level?
TV.com is all about contribution. If you want to increase your level, you need to contribute to the site. This includes posting in the forums, posting blogs, reviewing shows/episodes/people, and submitting quotes/trivia/recaps. Every time you make a post, a review, or a submission, you get points toward your level.
2) How do I post a picture?
You must be a level three to put pictures in both your signature and a post. Once you are a level three, find the URL of the picture you want to post (the URL is the web address, which you can find by right-clicking the picture and going to "properties"), and enclose it with the image tags. Like so:
[img] http://sampleurl.com [/img]
If you want to post one of your own pictures, I recommend getting a photobucket account. Once you upload the picture, they will give you the URL, the tag, and the image codes. Then you can just copy and paste.
FYI: You must also be a level 3 to post active (clickable) links. Until you are a level three, it just posts the URL.
3) How big can signatures be?
Your signature, according to this site's TOS, can be no bigger than 200x550 px (if it is a picture). That is 200 pixels high and 550 pixels wide. Anything larger than that will be deleted by the site's moderators. If your signature is just text, it can be no longer than 12 lines.
4) How do I change my user icon?
Up by your username in the corner, click "prefs". On the page that automatically pops up, go down to "current icon" and click the list arrow where it says "select icon set". Go to town! Remember to save your changes when you're done!
As of January 12, 2007, you can also use your own icons! Just enter the URL of the icon you wish to use in the box provided. You can still select from the tv.com stock icons if you wish. Icons that you use from your own collection must be no larger than 80x80 px.
5) What the heck does "canon" mean?
When something in a show is "canon", it is fact. It can be backed up with evidence from the show.
6) Where can I find a particular song from a particular episode?
Check out the Scrubs section on Tunefind.
7) What is considered a "spoiler"? And where can I post spoilers?
These aren't considered spoilers:
1) Promos from the website
You can post links to things, so long as you mention that there are spoilers in the link. Promo stills should not be posted until the day of the episode. If you want to post the pic, post a link to it.
Remember that if the word "spoilers" is not in the thread title, you need to give warning when you post them. This can be done by putting WARNING: SPOILERS and then several lines between the warning and the spoilers, then putting END SPOILERS. Or, you can white the spoilers out, so that you have to highlight to read it. That way, if you don't want to know, you don't have to read it.
Also, once an episode has aired in the US and Canada, it is no longer considered a spoiler.
What is a "ship"?
"Ship" is short for "relationship". This is two people on a television show whom you want to end up together. If you are a fan of that couple, you ship that couple.
9) What is TPTB?
TPTB stands for The Powers That Be. This includes all writers, producers, directors... Basically anyone involved with decision making for the show.
