Hey. some of you saw that last week, we had a thread in which several frequent users (myself included) welcomed two new members on the site. All the time, i see new members popping up on forums and in comments below articles. i've also noticed that there are all kinds of things you can do on NintendoLife. so i thought it would be a good idea to have a sort of user-updated handbook everytime some new feature is added thanks to our Admin buddies. so i'm thinking telling everybody how to do all the different smileys, how to post a link with your own words instead of just the URL (like i have in my sig, but have forgotten how to do), how to post a picture or video in the forums instead of just a link to one. how to quote, etc. all that stuff. maybe one of you could even post up links to the chatroom, and the karaoke thing so new members (or those who are still somehow unaware) can have easy access all from our very own online handbook.

thanks, guys!

Not complete, obviously, but a handy reference that even I still refer to. :)

Sounds like a great idea - make it so!

I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.

awesome. could we get a special button at the top bar, say, right next to "About" where we have all those things listed for easy access so everyone can make the most of their NL experience? Ant?

that helps, but i just want there to be a page detailing all this stuff that s easily accessible to all newcomers. i think a "How To" button up at the top of the page would be excellent.
