Avatars/Sigs/Whatnot

To change your avatar or signature, hover over the profile link above, you will see a drop down menu.  Click on "Forum Profile" for the options.  If you do not see a drop down menu, click on the profile link, from there hover over "modify profile" and select "forum profile."

Password/Email Address

To change your password or email address hover over the profile link above and you will see a drop down menu.  Click on "Account Settings" for the options.  If you do not see a drop down menu, click on the profile link, from there hover over "modify profile" and select "account settings."

Changing Skins

To select a different skin, you can select from the drop down menu at the bottom left of your screen.  Scroll all the way down and select the one you want.
Warning: Selecting a new theme will redirect you back to your profile.  So be careful when you change skins so that you don't lose any information you've posted.

Embedding Youtube

To embed a youtube video, use this code:

Code: [Select]
[youtube]Video ID[/youtube]
You do NOT add the full URL, only the video ID.  The video ID is the series of number and letters that come after v=.  Do NOT include the v= or anything after the numbers and letters.  So if the URL is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4TedkQP_hM then you simply put the bolded section in between the youtube tags. 
Code: [Select]
[youtube]P4TedkQP_hM[/youtube]
and it will show up like this:
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4TedkQP_hM" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4TedkQP_hM</a>

Note that some youtube videos do not allow external embedding.

Spoilers

Don't know if it will get used much here but if you want to make a post containing spoilers, put the hidden information in between the spoiler tags like so:

Code: [Select]
[spoiler]hidden info[/spoiler]

It should be noted that the default skin shown to newly registered users doesn' t have the bottom-left skin menu. Instead use Profile > Look and Layout > Current Theme > change.

The default skin shows text in a narrower column than most others, which makes reading walls of text more pleasant but on the other hand breaks the layout of some members' profile pages.

Yeah, the defult skin used to be Rainbow Dash but, I've noticed whenever I get signed out it goes to Spike lately and that one doesn't have tthe menu. :-\

Wow...

Anyway, Mare in the Moon doesn't have the Simple Theme Changer either, and neither does Pony Adventure (but then again, who uses that? :P). We've known about this for awhile now.

Also, this is probably the biggest bump in EqF history and I can't take credit for it! :'(
