Welcome to SMBF! Read here before posting!

Welcome to Super Mario Forums! We are so excited to have you join us. Smile I'm sure you'll have many questions, so I'll try to answer a few of those questions here. Make sure you create a "Greeting" post in this forum so we can all get to know you!

Forum Navigation
First let's talk about the forum navigation buttons at the top of the page. These buttons are viewable from every page of the forum.

From left to right:
Forum - Clicking this button will take you directly to the entire forum listing. From here you can view or make new posts. Browse the forums to find the one you are interested in and click on that forum. See next post for further information on how to post.
Home - Clicking this will take you to the very front page of Super Mario Forums. The Home page is where you will find news about the game, member created poll, a Site Navigation bar where you can find many links, a list of your online buddies, a list of all members online, Top Posters, a link to the Site Rules, and the most recent posts.
Gallery - Our Gallery is the only 100% approved image hosting. Any other images should be hosted on images from our Approved Hosting Sites list (located in the Rules and Regulations subforum) or your images may not work.
FAQ - Some of our more commonly asked questions can be found here.
Search - Use this page for searching for certain topics, posts by specific people, or posts within a certain date range.
Members - Here you can find a list of members on this site.
Usergroups - This is where you can join and modify groups, some of which will let you access more of the site's features.
Profile - This is an exciting area! You can change your profile, change settings, subscribe to threads, and more in this area!
Messages - This is where you can find private messages, sent to you by other users. It's kinda like email but it's on here.
Log Out - Clicking here signs out of the site and clears your SMBF cookies.
Donate - Here you can donate money towards the forum which might give us some completely new features!

Posting And You...

Now let's talk about you and posting on the forums. Maybe you have opinions, questions that you can't answer on your own, and the unexplicable urge to tell someone how much you like Mario! Well the healthy place to express that is here at SMBF.M-G.com!

Before you go a clicking that New Thread button, ask yourself the following questions:

1st: Will the thread contribute to the forum?
Opinion: If you have a opinion, back it up with reason.

Question: If you have a questions, provide enough information so that others can help you.

Just something to say: If you just have something to say, say it respectfully.


2nd: Has it been posted before?
One of SMBF's best kept secrets is the Search button ()! This handy little fellow will help you find threads of days gone by. Just simply enter in some basic keywords and press "Search Now".

REMEMBER: It's always better to post in an existing thread than to make a new one!

Check forum stickies. They can be found at the top of every forum beside the word "Sticky". You don't want all the kids laughing at you for asking a question that was answered in a fourm sticky, do you?


3rd: Am I in the right forum?
Read a description of each forum and decide which forum best suits your thread. So don't post a thread about your favorite cupcake in the Bugs and Glitches forum!

Now, you're ready to start posting! Have fun!
