This is the all-new spangly Hijack FAQ thread. The previous thread wasn't being updated regularly and it needed a bit of a tidy-up.

If anyone has anything they'd like adding or amending, send me a PM & I'll get on to it.

Does hijack have an events calendar?
  One of the most asked questions on hijack (and subject of much piss-taking). An official calendar has been a loooooooooong time in the making, but Codlife has taken the task upon himself and produced a fantastic "unofficial" calendar.

You can find it here: http://www.headfirstbristol.co.uk/

also, there is the Don't Panic event listings thread which is updated weekly. you can find that right here

Is there a mobile version of hijack?
  Yes! http://wap.hijackbristol.co.uk and http://www.hijackbristol.co.uk/board/?wap2

How do I include an image in my posts?
  The image will need to be hosted somewhere online. If the picture is not yet online, upload to http://imgur.com/ or another hosting service. The URL of the pic will then need to be put between img tags like so:
[img]image url goes here[/img]

If you want to resize an image, you can specify the size in the img tags like so:
[img width=200 height=400] image url here [/img]

How do I embed a youtube video in my post?
  The URL of the youtube video needs to be changed from
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yu_moia-oVI to
http://www.youtube.com/v/Yu_moia-oVI by deleting the "watch?" and replacing the "=" with a "/"

It should then be put between flash tags like so: Dimensions of 533 by 300 seems to work pretty well.
[flash=533,300] http://www.youtube.com/v/Yu_moia-oVI[/flash]

How do I embed my Soundcloud player on Hijack?
  See Powdermonkey's post HERE

How do I put an animated gif in my avatar?
  The gif needs to be no bigger than 65 x 65 in size. You can resize your gif using http://www.gifworks.com/image_editor.html.
  If it's larger than 400kb & you've got PS CS3, THIS shows you how to resize. Or send me a PM & I might do it for you.  Wink

How do I make a URL into text?
  Want to insert a URL, but have it appear as text like THIS?
  Use URL tags, as shown below:

A URL I posted doesn’t link properly!
  Hijack’s hyperlinking doesn’t like exclamation marks. If your link has one in, it won’t work. You’ll need to insert it between URL tags like so:

How do I contact a moderator?
  If you wish to complain about a post or thread, using the “report to moderator” option at the bottom of each post will solicit the quickest response.

How many posts do I need to have made to become…
Newbie  - 0     
Rookie - 30   
Raver - 200   
Veteran - 750   
Dub Specialist - 3000
Ultimate Warrior - 4500
Knife of the realm – 8000

Are there any forum rules?
  Show other Hijackers nothing but big love!  All board discussions ought to be carried out by reading posts carefully and treating other users with respect.  Verbal abuse, harassment, slander against anyone etc. will not be tolerated.

TROLLING or FLAMING other hijackers will result in a user / ip permanent ban

If you are posting a link to a web site or image that is not safe for people to view at work (or will be tasteless or offensive to some people), then please mark it "Not Safe For Work/NSFW" in the title.

From 26 January 2009 the UK government introduced new laws concerning "extreme pornography", making the possession or dissemination of such images illegal. Specific details can be found HERE, but needless to say the posting of such images will not be tolerated.
Please do not create multiple threads advertising the same night. If you do this, the newer thread will be deleted. Use the search function to find the original thread.  General common sense and courtesy are the key here.

If starting a new thread it’s also a good idea to do a search before posting to see if it’s been posted before. This isn’t a rule per se, but will stop your thread being shot down with “repost!!!!1111”. The search function has been improved, but isn’t perfect. Using the advanced search function denoted by the symbol next to the search box helps to filter your results.

Why do people put Bad Teeth at the end of their posts?
   Hijack is full of sarcastic, piss-taking people. Bad Teeth is sometimes used to indicate that what has been written is intended to be funny and should not be taken literally. However Bad Teeth is the internet equivalent of holding your hands up & shouting JOKE immediately after saying something and has been abandoned by many. Take what is posted with a pinch of salt and you’ll get along fine.

Why do people put Script in their posts
Script is used when you are agreeing with the content of a previous post.

Now that was a f*cking rave. A proper sweaty top-off monster. Best night I've been to for f*cking ages.
