Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


#1

Q: How do I add or amend a Question or an Answer?
A: Have at it! This post is editable by all so please do so.

Q: Help me!
A: Not really a question but OK. You can email support@rygas.space or just mention the support team group by including @support in any post. Feel free to add a question below if you think the answer might help others.

Q: Why does my face look stupid?
A: The site uses Adorable Avatars to generate a random avatar for users that have not uploaded their own. It uses your username to generate the avatar so should remain the same until you upload your own.

Q: How do I get less emails?
A: Click here and under “Preferences” on the next page you probably want to change settings for “Activity report”.

Q: How do I get more emails?
A: By default the forum won’t email you if it thinks you are active on the site when the notification is generated. To change this click here and under “Preferences” on the next page tick the box next to “Send me email notifications even when I am active on the site”

Q: What is a “Category”?
A: It’s a lot like a sub-forum although the site doesn’t visually group topics by category. Each topic has only one category but can have many tags if you wish to adorn it further.

Q: How do I get back my post that I deleted/was mangled by bears?
A: All changes are kept and can be reverted so don’t worry. Just flag your post for attention and then choose “Something else” for the reason. Bear defence is coming as a plugin so hang in there.

Q: The forum won’t let me do something, how do I increase my Trust Level?
A: There’s a detailed post here about Trust Levels but fundamentally the more you engage with the site, the more you can do. Moderators (@moderators) can also bump you up a level if you ask nicely! There are site settings which can be tweaked if you feel the boundaries aren’t working for our site.

Q: I have a question not answered here
A: Again, not a question. If you have a question about Discourse the forum software then you may find answers over at Discourse Meta. You can also ask any questions by replying below and I’ll incorporate them into this post.

Q: Is there a way to get an RSS feed from this site?
A: Yes, loads of ways!
