[i]Preface[/i]: I created this guide to get new users of the flood and bungie.net to feel more welcome and as a guide to be great members of the community. [quote]Chapter (1): Browser and Browser upgrades.[/quote] IE is not the browser you want to use on bungie.net, this guide will direct you towards the right browser. [quote]Chapter (1), part (1): Firefox.[/quote] Firefox is a internet browser just like Internet Explorer (IE), however it has several advantages over IE and has Flood and Bungie specific upgrades. [url=http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/personal.html?from=getfirefox]Download firefox.[/url] [quote]Chapter (1), part (2): Greasemonkey.[/quote] Grease monkey is a firefox addon that allows upgrades for firefox (called scripts). it is a nessecity for the smart floodian. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/748/ Copypasta that and download greasemonkey. Chapter (1), part (3): Flood and Bungie specific greasemonkey scripts. [url=http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/52501]Posting tools.[/url] [url=http://bungie.paulmarv.com/scripts/CoupDBungie/coup_d_bungie_v3_public.user.js]Coup.[/url] [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=27428424&postRepeater1-p=1]All bungie and flood specific scripts are available here.[/url] [quote]Chapter (2): Spellcheck and Posting.[/quote] This chapter will inform you upon the wonders of spellcheck. [quote]Chapter (2), part (1): lrn2spellcheck.[/quote] Spellcheck is the red line that appears on firefox when you misspell a word, just right-click the misspelled word and select the word you originally wanted. It's as easy as that. [quote]Chapter (2), part (2): Memes and spam.[/quote] When you are posting on the flood you will see many things about 'Porches' or 'Shishka is a pegboy' Or even the occasional 4chan meme. Instead of making a thread about 'O M J guise, wahts is porchdayz ZOMG' I will explain it. It was a day on the flood when a user posted that a 'Dog showed up on his porch' and he wanted to know what he should do. This quickly spiraled out of control and turned in to a crapflood of 'There is a ___ on my porch' floodians seem to worship this day. Shishka is a Pegboy It was another day long ago when Shishka appeared to have pissed off a user by the name of 'Watermelon King'. He spammed 15+ pages of 'Shishka is a Pegboy'. Most believe it was a spambot, this isn't true. He is the reason for the spam filter. [quote]Chapter (3) Trolls and flamers.[/quote] Every once in a while a prepubescent boy will need 'lulz' after reading ED AKA Encyclopedia Dramatica or New-blam!- land. He may appear in many forms: The spammer: [url=insert shady link here] CLICK [/url] The troll: USA SUCKS -blam!-S! LOLOLOLOL!olo!!!1111! The flamer: U SUCKZ BK GO DIE IN A HOLE! Truly good trolling is [i] satire[/i], and many people are incapable of pulling it off. [quote]Chapter (4): The report button and you.[/quote] Imagine this. You're posting when BAM! a troll attacks. What do you do? (a) Piss yourself (b) -blam!- yourself (c) Applaud him. The answer is... *drumroll* NONE OF THE ABOVE! If you look next to the reply button on this post, you will see a 'Report' button. This is what you do to destroy trolls and rulebreakers. A certain number of clicks sends it to the report queue, which is where our friendly neighborhood ninjas will deal with him. No one but mods will know how this works, as it is best put in the words of Qbix89 [quote][i]Secretzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz[/i][/quote]. [quote]Chapter (5): Floodian glossary.[/quote] "Inb4___" Originally a 4chan meme, it came to the flood and is commonplace now. "QFT" Quoted for the truth. When you agree with someone you quote them and type 'QTF'. "Cool story, bro." Used when they don't give a -blam!- about what you say. "Oreos" New-blam!-s thought oreos were good. "/thread" You just got pwnt so hard they put that in their post and ended your thread. has many variants, such as '/sarcasm'. "GTFO" GET DA FUG OUT. "GBITH3F" What you post when someone makes a 'OMGOLOL CHECKZ OUTZ MEZ SCREESHIOT ZOMG>>*'. Has many variations such as 'GBITH3ODSTF' and such. 'ur dumbd' What happens when you're dumb. '0÷0' OH SHI- 'ITT:' In this thread. Use when someone sees a lot of the same -blam!- going on in one thread. Example: 'ITT: Hate'.
