Login and Registration Issues

» How may I contact the Administrator without being registered?
Go to this link - http://www.candoo.com/contactform/index.html - and send the Administrator a detailed message. BE SURE TO INDICATE IN THE DROP-DOWN BOX WHICH FORUM YOU ARE ENQUIRING ABOUT. Messaqes which do not indicate which Forum is being referred to will not be answered.

Top

» How can I register to use this Forum?
The normal registration process has been removed from this Forum for security and SPAM avoidance. Please go to this link - http://www.caribbeanavenue.com/aviation/register.html - and fill in ALL of the fields. PLEASE NOTE: You are hereby advised that if the form is incorrectly or incompletely filled out you may not be registered or receive a response. PLEASE ALSO NOTE: Registration on this Forum also denotes agreement with the Terms Of Use posted in the first Category of this Forum and the phpBB Group Terms Of Use integral with this software.

Top

» Why can’t I login?
There are several reasons why this could occur. First, ensure your username and password are correct, including the Case (upper or lower) and if you originally used spaces between words. If they are, contact the board owner to make sure you haven’t been banned or de-registered (see Terms of Use). Second, it is also possible the website owner has a configuration error on their end, and they would need to fix it.

Top

» Why do I need to register at all?
For reasons of anti-SPAM and greater control over abuse, the Administrator of the Forum has decided you need to register in order to post messages, and you may do so using the form provided HERE: http://www.caribbeanavenue.com/aviation/register.html Please bear in mind that registration will give you access to additional features not available to unregistered viewers - such as hidden forums, definable avatar images, private messaging, usergroup subscription, etc. It only takes a few moments to register, so it is recommended you do so... please also note that registrations are processed manually once a day by the Administrator.

Top

» Why do I get logged off automatically?
If you do not check the Log me in automatically box when you login, the board will only keep you logged in for a pre-set time. This prevents misuse of your account by anyone else. To stay logged in, check the box during the login process. NOTE: This is not recommended if you should access the board from a shared computer, e.g. library, internet cafe, university computer lab, etc. If you do not see this checkbox, it means the Forum Administrator has disabled this feature.

Top

» How do I prevent my username appearing in the online user listings?
Within your User Control Panel, under “Board preferences”, you will find the option Hide your online status. Enable this option with Yes and you will only appear to the administrators, moderators and yourself. You will be counted as a hidden user.

Top

» I’ve lost my password!
Don’t panic! While your password cannot be retrieved, it can easily be reset. Visit the login page and click I’ve forgotten my password. Follow the instructions and you should be able to log in again shortly. You can also contact the Administrator, stating your username and/OR the email with which you registered. There is a link to the contact form on the front page of the Forum at top left, immediately under the "Board index" link.

Top

» I registered but cannot login!
First, check your username and password. If they are correct, then it could be that you will need to wait for your registration to be activated by the Administrator before you can logon. This information was present during registration. If you were sent an e-mail, follow the instructions. If you did not receive an e-mail, you may have provided insufficient or incorrect information to the Administrator on the registration form, or the e-mail may have been picked up by your spam filer. If you are sure the e-mail address you provided is correct and your SPAM filter did not discard the registration email, try contacting the Administrator directly.

Top

» I registered in the past but cannot login any more?!
First, if you registered over a month ago and did not make a Post yet, you have been de-registered (see Terms Of Use). If this is not the case, attempt to locate the e-mail sent to you when you first registered - which you should NOT have deleted - use it to check your username and password and try again. It is also otherwise possible the Administrator has de-registered or deleted your account for some reason. If something like this is the case, try registering again and being more involved in discussions.

Top

» Why can’t I register?
It is possible the website owner has banned your IP address or disallowed the username you are attempting to register. The website owner could have also disabled registration to prevent new visitors from signing up. Contact the Administrator for assistance.

Top

» What does the “Delete all board cookies” do?
“Delete all board cookies” deletes the cookies created by phpBB which keep you authenticated and logged into the board. It also provides functions such as read tracking (if they have been enabled by the board owner). If you are having login or logout problems, deleting board cookies may help.

Top

» Why can't I register a second account with the same email address?
To keep the Forum as "honest" as possible, the Administrator has decided that one user may only have one account, and that he will not knowingly register two accounts to any one person. Please also note that you are able to register under a "Handle" (fictitious name), so you are able to Post to the Forum anonymously anyway from the time you register.

Top


User Preferences and settings

» How do I change my settings?
If you are a registered user, all your settings are stored in the board database. To alter them, visit your User Control Panel; a link can usually be found at the top of board pages. This system will allow you to change all your settings and preferences.

Top

» The times are not correct!
It is possible the time displayed is from a timezone different from the one you are in. If this is the case, visit your User Control Panel and change your timezone to match your particular area, e.g. London, Paris, New York, Sydney, etc. Please note that changing the timezone, like most settings, can only be done by registered users. If you are not registered, this is a good time to do so.

Top

» I changed the timezone and the time is still wrong!
The Administrator has decided that all the times displayed on this Board will be in GMT (UTC). For your guidance, GMT is always Caribbean time +4 (no Daylight savings Time).

Top

» My language is not in the list!
Either the administrator has not installed your language or nobody has translated this board into your language. Try asking the board administrator if they can install the language pack you need. If the language pack does not exist, feel free to create a new translation. More information can be found at the phpBB website (see link at the bottom of board pages).

Top

» How do I show an image below my username?
There are two images that may appear below a username when viewing posts. Depending on the used style, the first may be an image associated with your rank, generally in the form of stars, blocks or dots, indicating how many posts you have made or your status on the board. The second, usually a larger image, is known as an avatar and is generally unique or personal to each user. It is up to the board administrator to enable avatars and to choose the way in which avatars can be made available. If you are unable to use avatars, contact a board administrator and ask them for their reasons.

Top

» What is my rank and how do I change it?
Ranks, which appear next to or below your username, identify the career role of users of this Forum. You cannot directly change the wording of any board ranks as they are set by the Forum Administrator. PLEASE NOTE: In this Forum you can NOT increase your Rank by increasing your number of Posts. Ranks are set for each individual by the Forum Administrator.

Top

» When I click the e-mail link for a user it asks me to login?
Only registered users can send e-mail to other users via the built-in e-mail form, and ONLY if the administrator has enabled this feature. This is to prevent malicious use of the e-mail system by anonymous users.

Top


Posting Issues

» How do I post a topic in a forum?
To post a new topic in a forum, click the relevant button on either the forum or topic screens. You may need to register before you can post a message. A list of your permissions in each forum is available at the bottom of the forum and topic screens. Example: You can post new topics, You can vote in polls, etc.

Top

» How do I edit or delete a post?
Unless you are a board administrator or moderator, you can only edit or delete your own posts. You can edit a post by clicking the edit button for the relevant post, sometimes for only a limited time after the post was made. If someone has already replied to the post, you will find a small piece of text output below the post when you return to the topic which lists the number of times you edited it along with the date and time. This will only appear if someone has made a reply; it will not appear if a moderator or administrator edited the post, though they may leave a note as to why they’ve edited the post at their own digression. Please note that normal users cannot delete a post once someone has replied.

Top

» How do I add a signature to my post?
To add a signature to a post you must first create one via your User Control Panel. Once created, you can check the Add signature box on the posting form to add your signature. You can also add a signature by default to all your posts by checking the appropriate radio button in your profile. If you do so, you can still prevent a signature being added to individual posts by un-checking the add signature box within the posting form.

Top

» How do I create a poll?
When posting a new topic or editing the first post of a topic, click the “Poll creation” tab below the main posting form; if you cannot see this, you do not have appropriate permissions to create polls. Enter a title and at least two options in the appropriate fields, making sure each option is on a separate line in the textarea. You can also set the number of options users may select during voting under “Options per user”, a time limit in days for the poll (0 for infinite duration) and lastly the option to allow users to amend their votes.

Top

» Why can’t I add more poll options?
The limit for poll options is set by the board administrator. If you feel you need to add more options to your poll then the allowed amount, contact the board administrator.

Top

» How do I edit or delete a poll?
As with posts, polls can only be edited by the original poster, a moderator or an administrator. To edit a poll, click to edit the first post in the topic; this always has the poll associated with it. If no one has cast a vote, users can delete the poll or edit any poll option. However, if members have already placed votes, only moderators or administrators can edit or delete it. This prevents the poll’s options from being changed mid-way through a poll.

Top

» Why can’t I access - or see - a particular forum?
Some forums may be limited to certain users or groups, or hidden from everyone but certain users. To view, read, post or perform another action you may need special permissions. If you know about a hidden Board and believe you qualify to be on it and should be granted access, contact the Forum Administrator HERE: http://www.candoo.com/contactform/index.html with your request.

Top

» Why can’t I add attachments?
Attachment permissions are granted on a per forum, per group, or per user basis. The board administrator may not have allowed attachments to be added for the specific forum you are posting in, or perhaps only certain groups can post attachments. Contact the board administrator if you are unsure about why you are unable to add attachments.

Top

» Why did I receive a warning?
Each board administrator has their own set of rules for their site. If you have broken a rule, you may be issued a warning. Please note that this is the board administrator’s decision, and the phpBB Group has nothing to do with the warnings on the given site. Contact the board administrator if you are unsure about why you were issued a warning.

Top

» How can I report posts to a moderator?
If the board administrator has allowed it, you should see a button for reporting posts next to the post you wish to report. Clicking this will walk you through the steps necessary to report the post.

Top

» What is the “Save” button for in topic posting?
This allows you to save passages to be completed and submitted at a later date. To reload a saved passage, visit the User Control Panel.

Top

» Why does my post need to be approved?
The board administrator may have decided that posts in the forum you are posting to require review before submission. It is also possible that the administrator has placed you in a group of users whose posts require review before submission. Please contact the board administrator for further details.

Top

» How do I bump my topic?
By clicking the “Bump topic” link when you are viewing it, you can “bump” the topic to the top of the forum on the first page. However, if you do not see this, then topic bumping may be disabled or the time allowance between bumps has not yet been reached. It is also possible to bump the topic simply by replying to it, however, be sure to follow the board rules when doing so.

Top


Formatting and Topic Types

» What is BBCode?
BBCode is a special implementation of HTML, offering great formatting control on particular objects in a post. The use of BBCode is granted by the administrator, but it can also be disabled on a per post basis from the posting form. BBCode itself is similar in style to HTML, but tags are enclosed in square brackets [ and ] rather than < and >. For more information on BBCode see the guide which can be accessed from the posting page.

Top

» Can I use HTML?
No. It is not possible to post HTML on this board and have it rendered as HTML. Most formatting which can be carried out using HTML can be applied using BBCode instead. This a security measure to prevent hacking.

Top

» What are Smilies?
Smilies, or Emoticons, are small images which can be used to express a feeling using a short code, e.g. :) denotes happy, while :( denotes sad. The full list of emoticons can be seen in the posting form. Try not to overuse smilies, however, as they can quickly render a post unreadable and a moderator may edit them out or remove the post altogether. The board administrator may also have set a limit to the number of smilies you may use within a post.

Top

» Can I post images?
Yes, images can be shown in your posts. If the administrator has allowed attachments, you may be able to upload the image to the board. Otherwise, you must link to an image stored on a publicly accessible web server, e.g. http://www.example.com/my-picture.gif. You cannot link to pictures stored on your own PC (unless it is a publicly accessible server) nor images stored behind authentication mechanisms, e.g. hotmail or yahoo mailboxes, password protected sites, etc. To display the image use the BBCode [img] tag.

Top

» What are global announcements?
Global announcements contain important information and you should read them whenever possible. They will appear at the top of every forum and within your User Control Panel. Global announcement permissions are granted by the Forum Administrator only.

Top

» What are announcements?
Announcements often contain important information for the forum you are currently reading and you should read them whenever possible. Announcements appear at the top of every page in the forum to which they are posted. As with global announcements, announcement permissions are granted by the Forum Administrator only.

Top

» What are sticky topics?
Sticky topics within the forum appear below announcements and only on the first page. They are often quite important so you should read them whenever possible. As with announcements and global announcements, sticky topic permissions are granted by the Forum Administrator only.

Top

» What are locked topics?
Locked topics are topics where users can no longer reply and any poll it contained was automatically ended. Topics may be locked for many reasons and were set this way by either the forum moderator or board administrator. You may also be able to lock your own topics depending on the permissions you are granted by the Forum Administrator only.

Top

» What are topic icons?
Topic icons are author chosen images associated with posts to indicate their content. The ability to use topic icons depends on the permissions set by the Forum Administrator.

Top


User Levels and Groups

» What are Administrators?
Administrators are members assigned with the highest level of control over the entire board. These members can control all facets of board operation, including setting permissions, banning users, creating usergroups or moderators, etc., dependent upon the board founder and what permissions he or she has given the other administrators. They may also have full moderator capabilities in all forums, depending on the settings put forth by the board founder.

Top

» What are Moderators?
Moderators are individuals (or groups of individuals) who look after the forums from day to day. They have the authority to edit or delete posts and lock, unlock, move, delete and split topics in the forum they moderate. Generally, moderators are present to prevent users from going off-topic or posting abusive or offensive material.

Top

» What are usergroups?
Usergroups are groups of users that divide the community into manageable sections board administrators can work with. Each user can belong to several groups and each group can be assigned individual permissions. This provides an easy way for administrators to change permissions for many users at once, such as changing moderator permissions or granting users access to a private forum.

Top

» Where are the usergroups and how do I join one?
You can view all usergroups via the “Usergroups” link within your User Control Panel. If you would like to join one, proceed by clicking the appropriate button. Not all groups have open access, however. Some may require approval to join, some may be closed and some may even have hidden memberships. If the group is open, you can join it by clicking the appropriate button. If a group requires approval to join you may request to join by clicking the appropriate button. The user group leader will need to approve your request and may ask why you want to join the group. Please do not harass a group leader if they reject your request; they will have their reasons.

Top

» How do I become a usergroup leader?
A usergroup leader is usually assigned when usergroups are initially created by a board administrator. If you are interested in creating a usergroup, your first point of contact should be an administrator; try sending a private message.

Top

» Why do some usergroups appear in a different colour?
It is possible for the board administrator to assign a colour to the members of a usergroup to make it easy to identify the members of this group.

Top

» What is a “Default usergroup”?
If you are a member of more than one usergroup, your default is used to determine which group colour and group rank should be shown for you by default. The board administrator may grant you permission to change your default usergroup via your User Control Panel.

Top

» What is “The team” link?
This page provides you with a list of board staff, including board administrators and moderators and other details such as the forums they moderate.

Top


Private Messaging

» I cannot send private messages!
There are three reasons for this; you are not registered and/or not logged on, the board administrator has disabled private messaging for the entire board, or the board administrator has prevented you from sending messages. Contact a board administrator for more information.

Top

» I keep getting unwanted private messages!
You can block a user from sending you private messages by using message rules within your User Control Panel. If you are receiving abusive private messages from a particular user, inform the Forum Administrator, who has the power to prevent a user from sending private messages

Top

» I have received a spamming or abusive e-mail from someone on this board!
We are sorry to hear that. Please e-mail the Forum Administrator with a full copy of the message you received. PLEASE NOTE: It is very important that this includes as many details as possible of the user that sent the message, and the message itself. Only with detailed information can the Forum Administrator then take action.

Top


Friends and Foes

» What are my Friends and Foes lists?
You can use these lists to organise other members of the board. Members added to your friends list will be listed within your User Control Panel for quick access to see their online status and to send them private messages. Subject to template support, posts from these users may also be highlighted. If you add a user to your foes list, any posts they make will be hidden by default.

Top

» How can I add / remove users to my Friends or Foes list?
You can add users to your list in two ways. Within each user’s profile, there is a link to add them to either your Friend or Foe list. Alternatively, from your User Control Panel, you can directly add users by entering their member name. You may also remove users from your list using the same page.

Top


Searching the Forums

» How can I search a forum or forums?
Enter a search term in the search box located on the index, forum or topic pages. Advanced search can be accessed by clicking the “Advanced Search” link which is available on all pages on the forum. How to access the search may depend on the style used.

Top

» Why does my search return no results?
Your search was probably too vague and included many common terms which are not indexed by phpBB3. Be more specific and use the options available within Advanced search.

Top

» Why does my search return a blank page!?
Your search returned too many results for the webserver to handle. Use “Advanced search” and be more specific in the terms used and forums that are to be searched.

Top

» How do I search for members?
Visit to the “Members” page and click the “Find a member” link.

Top

» How can I find my own posts and topics?
Your own posts can be retrieved either by clicking the “Search user’s posts” within the User Control Panel or via your own profile page. To search for your topics, use the Advanced search page and fill in the various options appropriately.

Top


Topic Subscriptions and Bookmarks

» What is the difference between bookmarking and subscribing?
Bookmarking in phpBB3 is much like bookmarking in your web browser. You aren’t alerted when there’s an update, but you can come back to the topic later. Subscribing, however, will notify you when there is an update to the topic or forum on the board via your preferred method or methods.

Top

» How do I subscribe to specific forums or topics?
To subscribe to a specific forum, click the “Subscribe forum” link upon entering the forum. To subscribe to a topic, reply to the topic with the subscribe checkbox checked or click the “Subscribe topic” link within the topic itself.

Top

» How do I remove my subscriptions?
To remove your subscriptions, go to your User Control Panel and follow the links to your subscriptions.

Top


Attachments

» What attachments are allowed on this board?
Each board administrator can allow or disallow certain attachment types. If you are unsure what is allowed to be uploaded, contact the board administrator for assistance.

Top

» How do I find all my attachments?
To find your list of attachments that you have uploaded, go to your User Control Panel and follow the links to the attachments section.
