Frequently Asked Questions
It is a way to show our thanks and recognition for the time and effort they have put in on Carpe Noctem, as well as to highlight to other Member's that these are generally people who have been around for sometime and may have valuable insight and experience.
In addition, all True Bloods gain access to the True Blood section of the forum (which is hidden from non True Bloods). In this section, discussions around CN's policies, future and other key points take place and the opinion of the True Bloods is highly valued.
This is a special function of CN's software, which automatically saves drafts of all entered text into post editors (such as creating a new thread, post or conversation).
These drafts are saved approximately every 30 seconds, and are retained by the system for 24 hours or until posted. The main reason for this is to ensure that if something happens like accidentally clicking back or closing your browser, if you navigate back to where you was trying to post the system will present your saved draft.

The main key differences about CN's editor are as follows:
- What You See Is What You Get: Generally when typing and inserting images the software will automatically update and display what will be posted as you type. This includes things like linking images etc, making it much more useful to see straight away what your post will look like. There are a couple of functions which do not benefit from this feature (see Special Functions)
- Keyboard Shortcuts: The standard keyboard shortcuts work such as Ctrl+B = bold. This makes it much faster and easier to format on the fly, especially for stories and roleplays.
- Special functions: Most of the buttons on the top bar are self explanatory (a description shows if you hover your mouse over them). Some special functions however are hidden over the icon that looks like a piece of paper (with a description of "insert"). By highlighting a piece of text and then selecting one of the insert options it will code the text so when posted functions such as "Spoiler" will be enabled.
- Upload a file: The file upload system can now handle multiple uploads at once, and again benefits from the WYSIWYG feature should you wish to insert the pictures into your post.
Very simple, just put @ and then start typing the member's name, for example @Lynks
You will notice as you type the software automatically starts showing a list of relevant member names, and you can either continue typing or select the one you want.
When you then save the post the member you have tagged will get an alert stating you have tagged them and a link to the post - a great way to get your friends involved in the discussion!
There are two ways to do this, as follows:
1. On the post that you think is quote worthy, click on the "Save Quotation" on the bottom right hand side:
This will then automatically take you to the quotation page, prefilling in the information (such as linking the post, the author etc) and also allows you to fill in context. So for example if someone has made a funny comment about how to use Skeletons, you could put in the context field "Discussing 8th Edition Skeletons". You can also edit the text of the post if you specifically just want to put a part of it in the quotation.
2. The second way is to manually navigate to the "Quotations" section of the forum (in which you can view all the quotations in our generator), and select to "Add a Quotation". This can be used for quotations from chat, or from other sites which we allow as long as they are normally Warhammer based:
Once a quotation is submitted (by either method) it will be queued for approval by an Administrator. It should normally be approved or denied within 24 hours. If approved a quotation automatically gets added to the catalogue by the system and will be displayed on a random basis.
If you have voted in a poll and wish to retract your vote, all you need to do is click "Unvote" on the top left of the poll summary as show here:
It will take approx 20 seconds due to the necessary database updates, however once complete you can then vote again as you wish.
