Registration is required if you plan to post new topics or reply to existing topics. Registration is free, and you are not required to post your real name. You are required to register with your actual email address, however. This email address is used only by HornFans administration and will be
held in the strictest privacy. You may choose to make this address (or a different email address) available to all HornFans users.
You've probably seen others use smilies before in email messages or other bulletin board posts. Smilies are keyboard characters used to convey an emotion, such as a smile :) or a frown :(. This bulletin board automatically converts certain smilies to a graphical representation. For example, if yo
u type :o in your BB post, it will automatically be converted to - a shameful face.

Using HTML and/or Markup Code
You are not allowed to use HTML code, but we have enabled some markup features for your use. Markup Code is similar to HTML, but offers just a few basic functions, such as hyperlinking, image display, bolding and italicizing. A complete list of current Markup Codes are listed
Moderators control individual forums. They can edit, delete, or prune any posts in their forums, as well as ban posters from being able to post messages. If you have a question about a particular forum, you should direct it to your forum moderator. If you think a moderator is overstepping their b
ounds, contact Katy at firstname.lastname@example.org with your concern.
Changing Your Profile
You may easily change any info stored in your registration profile, using the links on the Interactive page. Make sure you have logged in. You may change any items, except your username.
Customizing The Display
Unlike many of the popular bulletin board systems on the net, this bulletin board allows you to customize the display to you particular liking. You can change the way threads are viewed (either in a flat list or in a threaded mode). You may change the number of posts per page, and many other optio
ns. I encourage you to edit your display to fit your needs.
kies, or you have not enabled cookies on your browser, many of these time-saving features will not work properly.
Editing Your Posts
You may edit or delete your own posts at any time. Just go to the topic where the post to be edited is located and you will see an edit icon. Click on this icon to edit or delete the post. No one else can edit your post, except for the forum moderator or the bulletin board administrator. A note
is generated at the bottom of each post that is edited so that every one knows when a post has been edited. Note that if your post was the start of a new topic, deleting your post will result in the removal of the entire topic (all replies after your topic will also be deleted).
You may use a signature (commonly used in email messages) on your posts. You can edit your profile including your standard signature. Once you have a signature stored, you can choose to include it any post you make by checking the "include signature"
box when you create your post. This bulletin board's administrator may elect to turn the signature feature off at any time, however. If that is the case, the "include signature" option will not appear when you post a note, even if you have stored a signature. You may also change your signature a
t any time by changing your profile.
Note: You may not use HTML in your signature file, but you may use Markup Code. Please keep signature images under 50k and 60x60 pixels.
For security reasons, you may not attach files to any posts. You may cut and paste text into your post, however, or use Markup code to provide hyperlinks to outside documents.
Searching For Specific Posts
You may search for specific posts based on a word or words found in the posts, user name, date, and particular forum(s). Just click on the "search" link at the top of most pages.
Lost User Name and/or Password
Retrieving your username and password is simple. All of the pages that require you to identify yourself with your username and password carry a "lost password" link that you can use to have your username and password emailed instantly to your email address of record.
If you create a new topic, you have the option of receiving an email notification every time someone posts a reply to your topic. Just check the email notification box on the "New Topic" forum when you create your new topic, if you want to use this feature.
What are archives?
Archives are read-only areas that contain topics that were previously posted to one of our forums. You may not add a reply to a topic that is in an archive. Topics in an archive may have been conpletely removed from the original forum where they were started, or they may still exist in their forum
If you see any typographical errors (it's so
hard to find good help these days), or have suggestions about this site, please
send us feedback.
