  • Newcomers please read....

    I thought I would put this here so that new people coming in can read it. Once you get used to how this site works, I would say that it's not only the best site I have ever been to but also the most fun. It is very easy to get addicted too. If you want to know what the green is (under your username,) it's reputation. You can give out rep. by clicking on the gray scales at the bottom of a user's box, after clicking on it, a pop up box will appear that says:
    0 I approve of this comment
    0 I dissapprove of this comment.
    To give rep make sure I approve is checked and there will be a place at the bottom of it for you to write comments. The person you rep. can read these comments, so if u want rep back, sign your name after your comment so that person will know who wrote it. Also, you can read your own reps by clicking on USER CP at top of any page. They are below the threads that you are subscibed to.

    The points system is pretty much automatic. The more you post and stuff, the more points you earn and can eventually use the points menu. By the time you have enough points to do this, you should be pretty familiar with the site.

    I hope this helps someone, and if you are new and read this

                good idea to post it here pathwalker! cuz im sure everyone else is as confused as i was lol
                "So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide. Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

                When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and nothing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision. When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home."

                  Thanx Usdigvhi.....
                  I have been getting reps and PM,s saying that this has helped people, I give out green for anyone that post's here or PM's me But as I was just now looking at my own reps given to me, I have noticed one thing...

                  Newcomers are still NOT signing their name in the comment section of reppies, so we have no idea who they are coming from. Soooo....
                  Unless it is a bad rep, then sign your username after your comment, that way we can give thanx and green back too you.

                        I just thought since they aren't even signing the comments as is.... that they may be afraid of the repercussions of giving out bad rep. We aren't all perfect, ya know...

                        BTW, Got any songs for a newcomer?
                        You know how much I love your songs, right? So get your guitar and sing us one of your hot songs and I promise not to sing aloud. Because I'm not worthy! I'm not worthy! (Waynes World-The Movie)
                        and we will then

                                by Little_Pearl
                                What are points? How does one increase them? Can they be used to buy goods from the PowWow store. I currently have 399, which I put in the bank(is this what I am to do until I have enough to purchase goods?)
                                Thank you and apologies if this is posted in the wrong forum,

                                I've never really participated in a forum and I just wondered what everybody thinks about this, you know do you meet lots of people etc. Help me out, I may be a little behind but what's going on with the points? I'm not sure how this works, I'm probably the only person on the planet under thrity that...
