2.  Structure of our Evga-Forum

3.  How to post a new thread
Let's say I would like to post a new thread in the General Discussion area of the EVGA General Forum

 
Click Post New Thread as shown

 
Type your subject and body of your post

 
Now I just click the "Submit post" - button. The Thread/Post is now started.
 
 
4.  How to post a picture
It is quite simple to post a picture in a post.  
a) You can attach photos to your post by clicking on the box as shown. The link to paste in the box should be a direct
link from a picture hosting site like photobucket for example:

 

 4B. How to upload a picture
" Open Full Version" from top of text box

 
Select the "pine tree" icon = "Attach Images"

 
Select "From Gallery / Upload"

 
Select " Upload images from your computer

 

 5.  How to quote a message
First click "quote" as shown

 
Once you click the quote you will see something like this:
 
 
Start typing any text below the last quote. Usually your cursor is blinking at that point already for you.

6.  How to post a youtube-video
To insert a YOUTUBE video into a forum post you must be using the Full version of the forum reply. If inserting a video into an
already existing forum thread click "Open Full Version" in parenthesis as shown. If you are starting a brand new thread the
initial forum post will be in Full Version mode already.

Then click here on the box that says Special PGDCode when you hover your mouse on top of it.

Now you will see this box as shown

Now click on YouTube Video Embed
 
 
This is now copied into your post as shown which says "[tube][/tube]"
Now paste your youtubevideo-URL in between the [tube]insert Youtube URL here[/tube] 
Now just click "unlink" (The icon shown in the screenshot below)

and then "Post Message"
It should look like this.

 
7.  How to post a link
Lets say I would like to post a link to one of my profile. 
Then I find the URL to my profile. http://forums.evga.com...file.aspx?memid=852128
Now I would like to replace that long link with "link to my profile". 
I copy the whole link and then type "link to my profile. Now I mark the "link to my profile" and then click on the "link"-button.

The result:
Link to my profile
 
8.  How to setup up your modsrigs
a) Create a profile
b) Create a build
c) Upload pics (max 500kb each and file-type: Jpeg)
d) type your specs
e) Upload your 3Dmark/3Dmark11/Vantage-score to be able to win. I've shown an example below.. This is with my score, 13701 3DMark Fire Strike
e,a)  1. Insert your score.. (only digits) so for instance you have to write "13701" in the field right to the line marked with red. 
        2. Insert your link, "http://3dmark.com/3dmv/2562847", into the correct field
        3. Make sure your rig is public.
        4. Click Create New Rig

To all of you. Thanks for reading and thanks for the BR. I've wanted to make a thread like this for a long time, and now it is here. I needed a thread like this at the time I joined this Forum.

Not only should it be stickied (as it is) but it should stand out.  I suggest have Shane put a different color background where you see the row for this thread so it doesn't get missed.  Maybe only the key threads should have a different row background.  Just a thought.
