Disclaimer: I have put together some documentation regarding the various features available to the members of this forum. Feel free to ask any other questions that have not been answered here.

Pay per Post
The immediate feature that you should become accustomed to is your own unique user profile. Each user has their own way to express themselves in the community by editing the various components made available to you. To begin adjusting your profile, simply go to your profile page by clicking on your account name at the top of the forum, as demonstrated in the image to the right.
From your profile you can edit and enable a few cool features. The first thing I suggest doing (if you haven't already) is to add an avatar and a cover photo to your profile. You can see an example of this by viewing mine here. However, please note that your Forum avatar and cover photo shouldn't advertise other websites.
You can also enable status updates by choosing edit profile > enable status updates. This works similar to most social network platforms, in that it allows you to post updates, that might be relevant to those who browse your profile. This particular feature is very useful for instances where you may be away for for a while and want people who are looking for you to be aware.
So you are probably wondering, how do I get a sexy signature, at the bottom of my posts? Well its rather simple really. In order to enable signatures for both viewing and to display your own, you need to go to your account settings. See the image to the right for location. Once there, select signature form the list of items on the left. Then all you need to do is enable signatures and be sure to add your own in the area provided.
There are a few rules when adding a signature to your posts.
Only one image per signature is permitted, with the dimensions being no larger than 500 x 100 pixels.
You can only put a maximum of three different links in your signature.
Your signature can be no larger than three lines.
Your signature cannot contain clean or referral links (except PD ones), or any other form of advertising.
If at any point you wish to change your signature preferences or even just hide a particular users signature, you can do so by clicking on the small "x" button at the top right corner of their signature, as demonstrated in the picture below.
The community reputation system is built purely off of your participation on the forum, and how well you are received by your fellow peers. If the content you post is liked, then other members are able to up-vote your post or topic to show their appreciation. Alternatively if you post spam or content that isn't very useful, then other users have the ability to down-vote your content, which reduces your reputation. Anyone caught abusing this feature will be banned, without appeal.
This system helps provide a platform that grants the ability to judge how useful a person is to this community, and will be used to assist with promoting members of the community. If you support or like a persons contribution. Instead of replying to their topic saying 'thank you', use the vote-up feature and give them some reputation!
You can view the reputation leader board here.
Those users who succeed in receiving high praise for their content will be awarded weekly, by receiving a community reputation badge that appears on their profile. You can view a users reputation on their user profile or their postbit, which is located next to any comment or post on the forum.
Moderators have the ability to use the warn system, to control excessive flooding of the forum or to help assist members who are in breach of the rules. You can view any form of warning restrictions associated to a forum account by viewing that users profile.
Warning restrictions can include: Spamming, Inappropriate Language (in particular personal attacks), Signature Violation, Abusive Behaviour, Topic Bumping, etc.
The result of such warnings can be the restrictions associated to posting, and a complete ban.
5. Pay per Post
Satoshi's are awarded for participation in the forum and traded freely amongst members of this community. They are awarded as follows:
Up to 5,000 satoshi's are credited for a topic.
Up to 2,000 satoshi's are credited for a reponse a topic.
You can view all transaction history for your satoshi's, by viewing the transaction log for your account from the forum index. These satoshi's will be used for certain purchases that will be made available in the near future.
You will also find that certain categories don't add satoshi's to your account when posting. This is setup intentionally to help keep the content posted consistent. The following areas are not included in the pay per post scheme: Announcements & Important Information, Marketplace, Forum Support and Off Topic. This will be reviewed regularly.
Note: How much you earn per topic/post is determined by an algorithm that takes the following things into consideration.
How long you have been apart of the community.
How much contribution/post activity you have.
How many warning points you have obtained.
If your post is plagiarised.
If your topic or post is relevant to the area you posted.
