Old thread ran five years strong. Adding a couple things here:
Frequently Asked Questions & Issues
What should I do if I am having issues with the WF Website?
The first thing we will always tell you to do is reset your cache/delete history/delete cookies. Do this first before
making a thread in this section as it very well could clear up whatever issue you are having. When you make your thread you should start by saying that you have already tried resetting your cache/deleting history/deleting cookies.
If you need help with your account, PM one of the Admins and we will help you. Platt, Headliner, JM, Seabs. For a list of staff, visit the staff
The Administrator account is not an active admin account. It is used by different people at VerticalScope for tech support. Do not PM this account. OG Jeff is here to make sure our new layout/skin is running fine from a technical perspective. All operational related questions to the forum should be PM'd to one the four admins mentioned previously. If you have a tech issue, make a thread here in the help section.
We do not delete accounts. If you do not wish to be a part of this forum anymore, log out and leave. We also do not allow users to have multiple accounts. There is no need for it.
Why does someone have the usertitle of moron?
It means they are banned from the forum. It could be a temporary ban or permanent.
How many posts do I need to make a thread?
You need to make 10 posts. In the wrestling sections, you need to make 25. If they are spam posts, staff reserves the right to remove them which will deduct your post count.
Thread moderation; Why was I banned from a thread? Why I was banned from a certain forum?
Closed: When a thread is closed, the thread title will have a line through it and you will not be able to post in that thread. Why it was closed is usually explained, although if its an inappropriate thread for whatever reason, it becomes obvious why it was closed.
Moved: When a thread title has the word 'Moved' next to it, click on it, and you will be taken to where that thread was moved to. This could be that the thread was moved to another section of the forum, or that the thread was merged with another thread that already exists within the same subject.
Users can be removed from threads for being continuous disruptions. Likewise a user can be removed from a forum for being a continuous disruption in that forum by a Super Mod or Admin.
If you make terrible threads, your thread making permissions can be removed by an admin.
You can also have your access to rants removed as well. It may be the least moderated forum on the board, but if you are seen as a huge annoyance then you will be removed.
Your thread access will be restored by the discretion of a Super Mod or Admin. Your forum access will be restored by the discretion of an Admin.

Every new member starts out with a rep level of 50.
Rep power (Determines how many points you give a user when you rep them)
Register Date Factor - 1 point per 365 days
Post Count Factor - 1 point per 1500 posts
Reputation Point Factor - 1 point per 2500 rep points you have.
If you negative rep someone, it will be half of your green rep power. So if you are able to give someone 100 points, if you gave them red rep, you would give them 50.
You can give another user green or red rep by clicking the star icon at the bottom left. It will then take you to a page and ask if you agree or disagree with that users post. Do be careful, flaming via rep will be treated as though it is flaming on the forum or via PM and you can be warned/banned for doing so. If someone does flame you via rep, or stretches out your rep page with a large picture, PM a Super Mod or Admin and we will take care of it.
You can check who has given you rep by looking at your User CP. If you see grey rep, it has been given to you by someone who has red rep. Gray rep=0 points. The only way you will know if it was meant to be positive or negative will be based on the comment they leave.
You are limited to giving out rep 10 times over a 24 hour period and must rep 15 people before you can rep the same person again.
Reputation means nothing. It allows members to have a bit of fun.
To help support the site and increase your options on the site you can choose to buy either a Premium or Lifetime Membership. Paypal is fine.
With a paid membership, you will receive:
-Access to the arcade
-Access to the chatbox
-Usertitle editing rights
-Ability to use gifs in sigs
-VIP section for paid members
-Much more PM space
If you wish to buy a membership for another user you have to get their name and password from them, login to their account and purchase it that way. If whilst doing that you do anything to that users account, even make posts, you can be banned. If you allow someone to buy a membership for you it may be wise to change your password afterwards. If you have any issues please PM an Admin.
Paid members are not above being warned or banned. You are treated the same way as any other user and paid members can find themselves permanently banned.
File Exchange & Wrestling Multimedia
To stop lurkers joining just to access the File Exchange and Wrestling Multimedia, members can not access the section unless they have 50 posts. If you are caught spamming for media access, you will be banned.
Name changes are available for paid members only via the thread in the VIP section. Do not PM staff members requesting changes.
Why do certain non-staff members have different name colors?
They won a forum contest and an Administrator rewarded them with a name color.
Non-paid member signature uploads
Non-paid members upload signatures different from paid members. To use a signature, to go edit signature, and scroll down to the upload picture section. Use option two to upload a signature.

To post tweets, use the brackets [tweet][/*tweet] (Without the *)
When you select copy the link, paste all the numbers in the bracket. So for example if the link is:

Here is the video you will get. You will just need to click the video to play it:
To embed an IG picture or video, you use the [*ig][*/ig] (Without the *) tags to copy the letter code after the p/. If this is the url:
Same with a video. If this is the url:
It happens once every now and then. If you go to your edit signature option, you will see the at the current sig is still there. Just click save to change it back.
The graphics section was removed in August 2016 due to inactivity. Requests weren't being done. Comps weren't being participated in. There was an overall lack of artists on WF. From now on all Graphics stuff can be posted in the Anything Section including requests. Be forewarned, your request likely won't be done though.
