    I have noticed members trying to figure out who has given them rep (or negative rep) and what thread/post it came from. My guess is that many members don't know that you can check each instance where someone gave you rep by going to the right portion of BHW.

    I have also noticed people filling threads with useless posts that say something like: "subscribed" or "subscribed for later". YOU DON'T NEED TO DO THIS TO SUBSCRIBE TO A THREAD ON BHW!

    Tutorial #1 - How To Check Your Rep History

    First - click on "User CP" at the top left of your screen after you have logged into your BHW account.

    Then, scroll down to the bottom of the User CP Page. If you have Rep, you will then see something like this:

    [​IMG]

    Then you can scroll through and see all of the Plus/Minus rep you have received.


    Tutorial #2 - How To Properly Subscribe to a Thread

    Go to a thread you want to "track". I'll choose BassTrackerBoat's MNS thread (highly recommended btw) for an example. After going into the particular thread you want to subscribe to click on the "Thread Tools" option at the top right of the thread:

    [​IMG]

    Click on the "Thread Tools" button and a pull-down bar will appear. Hit the Subscribe button on that pull down bar:

    [​IMG]

    Once you do this you will see a new screen appear where you can choose to subscribe and choose how often (if ever) you want to be notified of changes/posts/updates to the thread you are subscribing to (such as instantly, daily, weekly or never):

    [​IMG]


    You can do the same process to also "unsubscribe" from the thread too if you wish or change your preferences on how often you receive notices/updates on the thread.

    You can also manage your subscriptions through the "User CP" button I discussed in Tutorial #1 above.


    NONE OF YOU HAVE ANY REASON TO PUT FLUFFY/USELESS POSTS IN A THREAD NOW TO "SUBSCRIBE" TO SOMETHING...LOL

    Hopefully this will be helpful to some of you...

    Now go make some $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Honestly... until yesterday I used to wonder how to check my rep.. Felt a little dumb to ask and just landed on the User CP yesterday. Thanks though.

    on a serious note, it's pretty hard to believe there's no setup option in vBulletin which can automatically resize too wide pictures, stretching the whole screen and making threads almost unreadable

    i try to pay attention not to post too wide images, but not everybody, some people don't know, some people don't care, but it's really annoying

    rant over

    to OP: nice tut, however it'd be more appropriate to show people how to unsubscribe from threads (more exactly how not to subscribe to threads by default), because by default you subscribe to every each thread you post in, if i can remember well
    it took some time until i figured out how to do it, when i was new here :)

    Ha Ha...24 inches baby!!! I love it (it's like a dual monitor w/o having to get two video cards in my tower)

    Hmmm...I totally forgot about that default option. I'll see if I can find that option (I opted out too and can't remember where it is...)

    Thanks HoNeYBiRD!
