I'm bored and I'll post OS Tips when I want to here.
OSTIP #1: DON'T EVER Forget to make a review thread for your original story in the forums. We mods will confirm both threads anyway.
OSTIP #2: When you see someone doing something beyond the rules anywhere, don't act like a staff member. REPORT it to any staff member with a screenshot/link if posible.
OSTIP #3: Never Forget proof when reporting. It can be a screenshot or a link to the said offense.
OSTIP #4: When you see a moderator doing something wrong for her/his job, PM an administrator with the screenshot.
OSTIP #5: If you can't access this website, ask someone in the OS Group in facebook to confirm things. or, just refresh like hell.
OSTIP #6: Edit your post when you want something in it instead of double posting.
OSTIP #7: When someone gets banned.. don't elaborate the reason why he was punished. Its better that way, so no further discussions will happen.
OSTIP #8: When you want something to be added here, just post it below and I'll add it for you.
OSTIP #9: Blog posts instead of copy pasting them . Check the bottom left part of every posts. It should be there."Blog this Post"
OSTIP #10: Instead of posting "Thanks" or such, Just click the Thanks button under that post. Its cleaner and better that way.
OSTIP #11: Instead of ranting errors in the shoutbox, you can just make a thread in this section: https://otaku-streamers.com/community...-Site-Problems The moderators who are in charge will check them out.
OSTIP #12: Here's a thread that can help you terms of slow buffering https://otaku-streamers.com/community...ry-these-steps!

Step 2: Find this: "Number of Posts to Show Per Page:"
Step 3: Select how many posts do you want to see per page.
Step 4: Save Changes.
OSTIP #14: You can communicate in the Chatbox instead of the shoutbox. You can also see a better view of the newly updated animes there because its dead most of the times.
OSTIP #15: You can check the recently updated animes in this link too: https://otaku-streamers.com/streaming...&anisrch_asc=0
OSTIP #16: You increase your otaku level by the activities you do on the site. Major contributions to increasing your level are uploading and streaming. But posting in the forums also contribute to a higher level as well.
OSTIP #17: If you're having a hard time searching for a specific thread or blog post you can also use google to search it out. Just type on google's search bar the following: site:otaku-streamers.com (insert what you want to search out here)
OSTIP #18: We have a library of usable BB codes in the forums, these codes can either modify the color, style and size of your font as well as embed youtube vids and whatnot you can find them all here. These codes work on the blogs, forums and on the chatbox.
Reminder: Do not embed youtube videos or images with sizes of more than 100x100 px on the chatbox. That is against the rules and can lead to a ban.
OSTIP #19: Only super moderators, anime moderators, support administrators and administrators have the permission to add anime titles.
OSTIP #20: Use spoiler tags when posting something that could ruin one's anime experience.
OSTIP #21: Instead of memorizing, you can just look under the shoutbox for our daily birthday celebrants in the homepage.
OSTIP #23: You can check this link for our current moderators, admins, VIPs, and etc here: https://otaku-streamers.com/community/showgroups.php
OSTIP #24: Use this link to change your color if you have more than one available for you. (Example: you're an OS Donator and an OS Regular at the same time) This can also be found in the settings page on the left part of the screen.
OSTIP #25: If you wanna watch anime but you can't do it on your laptop/computer, you can check this thread: https://otaku-streamers.com/community...-or-iPod-touch! and learn how to stream on your ipod/iphone/ipad
OSTIP #26: If you want to see the past conversations in the chatbox, just visit the archives and read. https://otaku-streamers.com/community/misc.php?do=ccarc
OSTIP #27: Click "Find your last message" instead of scanning the Chatbox Archives for your last message.
OSTIP #28: Add [Spoiler] before the actual title of your thread if you're going to discuss anime events. Not all members have watched everything that you have watched.
OSTIP #29: If you're happy and you know just clap your hands.
OSTIP #30: For less load on your computer/pc/cellphone turn your bubble header off by double clicking it on your settings:
OSTIP #31: You can ask our gfx team for your graphics need: https://otaku-streamers.com/community...aphics-Section
OSTIP #32: Use the "subscribe to this thread" function to keep track of some threads.
OSTIP #33: Use the spoiler tags when posting spoiler type of comments in anime pages too.
OSTIP #34: Remember to link your original story/fanfiction etc, to your review thread.
OSTIP #35: You can ask a "read receipt" when sending a private message. This way, you will be sure that your message has been read or not. The system will send an automatic message to you saying the message that you sent has been read.
OSTIP #36: You can ask video moderators/ super moderators / administrators or support administrators to delete your uploaded videos.
OSTIP #37: Do you know why threads are closed? Here's some of the reason why!
- The thread has given its purpose. Keeping them open will only attract untimely replies. (Announcements for holidays, events)
- The thread has been solved. (This applies to site, video reports and etc.)
- The thread has gone mad. It is closed to stop arguments or anything as such. (It has gone out of control, defying rules.)
- The thread maker requested it to be closed.
- The thread isn't open for replies. This is usually done in sticky threads, wherein user opinions aren't needed. (Rules etc.)
- The thread is a duplicate thread.
- The thread is a spam thread.
- The moderator accidentally pressed something to close it.
- The moderator is mad and crazy.
- Majority of members have felt it should be closed. It may be against the rules.
OSTIP #38: There are many ways to deal with spam/duplicate threads. Here are some:
- One is to throw them in the corner.
- We delete the thread.
- Close the thread, then link the original thread OR state the reason why it's been closed.
OSTIP #39: You can disable other members from posting comments on your profile in your settings. You can also disable comments for members who you haven't added as friends yet.
OSTIP #40: Use the "refresh" button on the shoutbox instead of posting for it to refresh. This saves time and effort. :v
OSTIP #41: Don't let your inbox be full. Members won't be able to Private message you if it's full.
OSTIP #42: Something that I found while moderating.
