This is a quick guide to using the new IM and Chat beta launch.

Rooms Tab:
The global-chat is open to all registered fans.

There is another room that is reserved for users of a certain level, and you'll also see that in the Rooms tab. In the past, we've had a few random people come in and hit on the people in the chat rooms, so the reserved room should be relatively free of such riff-raff.

Contact Tab:
Setting custom status messages: click on the pencil, and type away!

Turning off chat: Click on the bubble next to "I am online" and click on the red "Log out" option on the menu.

Contacts are your mutual fans that are currently online *and* signed into chat. You need to be mutual fans to see each other on chat.

Notifications:
Your browser may ask you to allow Fanpop to send you notifications. This will pop up a small window in the corner of your screen if someone sends you a message and lets you see messages without having your Fanpop browser tabs in the foreground.

Okay, first off, that title is a lie.

Based on the way things are going with the new club update feature so far, I thought we could use some guidelines. These are not official, they are merely suggestions on how to decide on a new icon or banner as a team. Only large clubs have the new suggestion options, so there are thousands of people there whose opinions count! (Not that smaller spots aren't valuable, you guys rock just as hard.) The suggested steps for changing a club's look are the same up until Step 3 for both large clubs with the new poll feature, and smaller ones with user-run polls for change.

It's important to remember that fanpop is a community, and should do things as a group. Randomly starting a poll for a new icon, banner or background is rude to other club members. Making icons and banners takes time, and the first options (likely made by the person who started the poll) are given the unfair advantage of being there the longest. Early voters aren't likely to check back in every day to see if new options have been added. Following these steps will help ensure that everyone has a fair chance to participate and that all options are...

Ten years ago, Fanpop made its presence on the Internet and people joined the site one way or another. I first found out about Fanpop when I did a Google Image Search on "link". That was back in May 2010, in which I signed up for the site as CHILDISHY; now I use my ReptarZolo account to match with my current DeviantArt account. All those years, Fanpop became cluttered with various types of violative content, including and especially pornography. With only four admins, I don't believe Fanpop will last any longer; this can be prevented if the admins promote some users, preferably those they trust, to become moderators and help clean up the site.

Hello to everyone,
my name is Inès, and I'm French.

As a lot of you know, Paris has been attacked yesterday by terrorists. The concert hall "Le Bataclan" has been attacked during a concert.

128 dead and more than 200 wounded are for now counted. This is a tragedy.

I was born and I've lived in Paris, and I often go there and to the Bataclan to attend concerts, and seeing this, is just awful. The whole country is shocked and desperate.

3 national days of mourning have been declared.

I invite you to leave a few words, thoughts for the victims of this disaster.

Thank you <3

*Repost
( Please notice that I'm in a rush, please excuse any mistakes. )
I had actually planned on making an article about Fanpop a few months ago and never had time and I still don't.
So instead of me just going into it full force detail like I planned I'm just gonna skim through it.
I'm writing this because I've been on Fanpop since 2011 and it has been amazing, but in the past year or so Fanpop has turned into a ghost town. It's so bad even some of the biggest clubs aren't really active anymore.
It really makes me upset because I can't even go to most of the clubs that I use to visit because it's so dead.
And when that happens to most sites ( it actually happens to every site ) they figure out what happen, get feedback, and change things.
So, here are the top five things I think Fanpop should add.
Notice: I'm not demanding/expecting any of this, I'm just giving ideas.
I'm a huge fan of customization I.love.it! If you look at the two sites Tumblr and Myspace. They're actually kind of alike, they both allow/ed you to create your own profile and and do whatever you wanted to it.

99% of you are amazing fans! This is a guide on dealing with the 1%.

[b][u]To summarize:

1. REPORT ATTACKERS IMMEDIATELY. You are doing the entire community a favor as they are probably attacking other members.

YOU MUST PROVIDE AS MUCH EVIDENCE AS POSSIBLE IN THE REPORT FIELD, including links to the attacks.

Attacks are personal insults, threats, bigotry, etc. A person saying they don't like a contribution is NOT an attack. Having a debate is also not an attack until insults/threats etc. are mixed in.

2. IGNORE THEM. DO NOT RESPOND BACK. If you attack back, you are probably giving the attacker/troll what they want. We won't dig through 20 pages of reports to find out who started it. In some cases, both people will be banned.

3. Reporting is not a weapon. People who fraudulently report enemies, do not provide details, and/or repeatedly report people without providing evidence may also be removed from Fanpop. Some weirdos report their own fake users. Seriously, you are asking for it, and you aren't fooling anyone.

I'm guessing a lot of people have all ready have found this problem but if you don't understand then it's like this:
One day I decided to create a new club of something that didn't exist as a club yet but I couldn't find the 'Create a club' button. Trust me I looked high and low for the thing but couldn't find it. When I logged out of my account at last there I saw it, the 'Create a club button' so when I clicked on it they of course asked me to sign back in but when I did I was the same position I was in before clicking.
For some people this problem don't seem to happen but for people like me who want to create clubs but can't because the button is unavailable well it's frustrating. I've been looking abound for some kind of answer but the only thing that came up was a link link
this only leads to you having to sign in again. I don't know if it's the signing in thing that's the problem but it really shouldn't be.

How long have you been on Fanpop?

Not that long. This June will be my 2nd year anniversary. I found this site when I was looking for an online anime community, since I thought that anime wasn't popular in the Netherlands. So, I wanted to join an online community to get in contact with other anime fans. I know now that there are a lot of other Dutch anime fans though. (;

Which club are you most active on?

I used to be very active in the anime club and the random club during my gap year. Those clubs are still the ones I visit the most, but I don't post as much as I did before.

Which Club is your favorite?

I like the anime club and the random club both very much, but if I had to choose, I would go with the anime club. I love anime and almost everything that has to do anything with Japan. I'm even studying Japanese at an university at the moment. (;

Which section is your favorite?

I can't choose. xD I love answering polls, reading the opinions of other users etc. I just love all sections equally. ;p

*Shyly posts* Yea..I made one too. c:

How long have you been on Fanpop?
I've been on here since 2011, on a different account of course. I left because there was way to much going on with that one. I re visit sometimes.
I'm thinking about leaving tho.

Which club are you most active on?
Anime, there would be more but they're dead. I really wish most of the clubs will get back active again. One day huh?

Which Club is your favorite?
Anime, because I really love anime.

Which section is your favorite?
The forum section, that's usually where I am.

Are you "known" for anything on Fanpop?
Mhm well, I use to be obsessed with Itachi, I mean I still am, I just don't post him much. Giving you guys a break. xD I post a lot of manga as of now, well when I'm on.

Have you made any friends on Fanpop?
Yea, she's very nice.

Random,just random.

Random because it's random.

You know I don't know...

This is a cute idea, why not join in? If nobody minds, of course,,

How long have you been on Fanpop?
I joined FP in 2011 under a different account. Shit happens, I end up not being allowed to go online anymore by my parents. Flash to a few years later. I figure "What's the harm in making an account again? It's not like I'll be on it much." since yeah I have no idea what my old password was. Damn was I wrong.

Which club are you most active on?
Probably the Anime Spot. Recently I've been taking long, unannounced breaks from here, but before then I was extremely active on the Dangan Ronpa spot.

Which Club is your favorite?
Once again, the Anime and Dangan Ronpa spots! Though they both have their fair share of problematic people, there are so many great people who post equally as great content!

Which section is your favorite?
For someone with absolutely terrible social anxiety (even online) this is kind of surprising, but the comments in the picks section! Even though sometimes I get nervous, it's a relief expressing my feelings towards things....

Well since my friend did it, I figured it would be fun. Especially since Im avoiding doing my homework

How long have you been on Fanpop?
Nearly three years. And I would like to say they have been a lot of fun.

Which club are you most active on?
Random Role Playing would be my most common one. I might also find myself around the Random and Anime club quite often. Then I keep track of a certain someone's fanclub as well as my own.

Which Club is your favorite?
Random Role Playing I guess. It holds some of my greatest interests.

Which section is your favorite?
Forum section for sure. Writing endlessly is life. Not to mention forums have to be the greatest thing ever created by man XD

Are you "known" for anything on Fanpop?
Riku: The User who uses 'XD' too much. Hum.... Actually no. If I were to be known for anything I think it would be as an RP-er.

((So . . . This is what happens when you aren't paying attention . . . Then you accidentally post an article in the wrong place . . . So now I'm reposting it here.))

So I thought it might be okay if I jump on the bandwagon that seems to be starting. It seems interesting.

How long have you been on Fanpop?
Sadly, the beginning of March this year marked only my first year anniversary. I haven't been here for very long.

Which club are you most active on?
The Anime club, and the Random Role Playing Club. I do tend to be fairly active on my own club as well, simply because I can post a wide variety of my own interests without being bothered.

Which Club is your favorite?
The same as stated above. Either the Anime club or the Random Role Playing Club. Both would likely be because of the community. I met several interesting people through those clubs.

1. How long have you been on Fanpop?

Since about 2008. So like 7 years.

2. Which club are you most active on?

Once Upon A Time, Avatar The Last Airbender, Music, I kind of just float all over the place.

3. Which club is your favorite?

It used to be Winx, we were like one big family. Now I like probably the Avatar spot the most or the Once spot.

Polls and images. But I mostly derp around in polls so.

This is an idea that link came up with a while back. You can read the original article with her own responses link.

Anyway... here goes!

1. How long have you been on Fanpop?
Four years.

2. Which club are you most active on?
That's a difficult question. Probably the link club, as I've made a lot of contributions and responses there, but I also feel like I spend quite a lot of time on the link, link, and link clubs too.

3. Which club is your favorite?
Another tough one! I am tempted to say the link club, because I've found some great submissions on there from other users, and enjoy contributing to the club myself too, but in all honesty it's not a very active club and can be a bit...

So I thought it would be fun if we could all do this. Every Fanpop user can partake in, all you do is answer the questions and you can personalize it of course :)



1. How long have you been on Fanpop?
Technically, 2 years.

2. Which club are you most active on?
The Disney Princess club, the community is really tight :)

3. Which club is your favorite?
Childhood Animated Movie Heroines, I wish more people checked it out. You can talk about basically anything animated surrounding the heroines so the topics are limitless.

4. Which section is your favorite?
The poll section, it's the most active, quick and fresh section :)

5. Are you ''known'' for anything on Fanpop?
Specifically on the DP spot... coming up with new ideas, like this one :P Also my love for Mulan, other of my very favorite animated characters include Shang, Sailor Moon, Spring Sprite and Aang.

Hello fanpopers,
I am Iti and I am really glad to announce that few days ago I took a short interview of one of the Fanpop's creator Dave P. who is popular here by his username Papa. It was great taking interview of one of the most loved F4 member ( I am sure he's most loved member) It was an amazing experience so thanks papa for giving me your precious time. I won't was much of your time. Here's the interview:

<i>Q.1 How did you got the idea of making the site as this site is really different.

Dave Lu and I were brainstorming different ideas back in 2005. One thing we really liked at the time were sites like Digg.com and Reddit but both sites were focused on technology and computers (at least at the time, reddit which remains popular has more diverse subjects covered now). We thought that maybe there was maybe an opportunity to create a site that would allow people to share their favorite links/resources about non-tech topics like running, parenting, photography, etc.

MyCode is the code you use to do stuff like bold, italics, underline, and link. However, those four examples is all Fanpop has. There are plenty of other websites that can do full MyCode- [s]strikethrough[/s], [color=red]colored letters[/color], but we can't even do something as mere as [quote=Username Here]
Quoting someone else

[list]
[*]Bullet
[*]Lists

[list=1]
[*]Numbered

Or even merely
[code]Showing other people the code in case they forget[/code]!
What I'm trying to say is that Fanpop needs MyCode, and that's that. In my opinion it would be a big improvement. Please Fanpop, do MyCode!

Of all of my peeves, this definitely bugs me the most. It's like if you're gonna pick a fight then at least have the decency to keep your original post. Don't call someone names, wait for them to fight back, and then edit your comment to subtract the insults so you can look like you didn't do anything wrong. It's just the most cowardly and kind of annoying thing to do. At least when I throw an insult I have the balls to leave it up and the respect to acknowledge that it may have not been the nicest thing to say and be up front about my snarkiness. People like that are why I have to screencap any debates, even the small ones I get into, in case they escalate and the person is puts on the victim act. It's like grow up and stop playing innocent. It's just the most annoying thing in the world to me when someone does that and then a third party person--who has no knowledge of the situation--comes in and starts chewing me out accusing me of being the only person being rude because someone just couldn't stick to the truth and hid behind the edit feature.

First and for most I intend no offense here. I suppose you can also call this article 'Why Maturity Is Important'. I don't hate or even dislike 12 and under users. So please don't get the wrong idea.

First and foremost I agree with it for the simple fact that rules are rules. There's an age limit for a reason.

And rules are usually in place for safety. In this case it isn't so much physical safety as it is mental safety. I have seen a vast array of young users who couldn't have been older than 8 post images of themselves all over. Okay, that's their choice, but it is a little dangerous. I don't mean to sound like the over barring mother, but that's like the number one rule of the internet--don't post images of yourself. Especially when you're so young. Outside the obvious one. I have seen so so many 13- users freak out over cussing. This is a social media site, of course there will be cussing. That's probably part of the reason why the rule is in place--the fanpop 4 are more than aware of this. On social media it is rather hard to ban cussing so putting an age restriction can help...if obeyed. A good number of users 13 and under are...

Alright so this is just for a laugh really, what you change isn't permanent anyway, only you cans ee it and when you refresh everything will change to normal again anyway so it s just for a laugh really so I'm going to teach you how to edit Fanpop clubs for your eyes only, you can have a bit of fun with things you hate or love!

First you will be needing:

- Google Chrome
- A Fanpop Account

Open up Chrome

Go to Fanpop and log in

Go to the club you want to edit (or maybe even someones profile, or yours)

Right click on something you want to change (For example, the fan count) and click Inspect Element...

if we wanted to change the fan count, let's say the fan count on the group we wanted to change was 200. Look for '200' in the inspect element database thingy...

Then edit it and press enter or f10 to save it

You can do this with pretty much anything (see my example)

[b]Hello. I am here to inform you on what may be going on. I know about all of those glitches on the top contributors lists and everything. I'm very unhappy about it. I mean, we worked hard for our place, and get kicked out for someone who is inactive. They did their part a long time ago, and the past is in the past. Now it's OUR time. We should earn back our places, but I don't think we will until we work even harder. On the My Little Pony club, I have been kicked off 2 places. 2 users got a fanatic when they do nothing. I have been trying to earn my spot back for about 1 or 2 months now, but I still haven't gotten there.


One reason may be is that the users who are inactive have a lot of things in the popular content that they uploaded. By getting to popular content, people have to pin, tweet, and share the item. And as you can see, when you log out, only popular images are seen and only popular videos are seen.

Another reason may be is that they are doing some kind of cheat. For example, creating an amount of accounts and fanning things.

Hey there! I'm emerald_32, but you can call me Emerald or Em. Today I'll be showing you a quick tutorial I made on how to upload images.
So I've heard that a lot of users are having problems with the new image uploader. I have to say, it isn't really that complicated. For a 1-2 days it was for me, but I figured it out now. Since some don't, I'll be writing this article for that situation.

Please note that the browser that I use is Google Chrome, because it has some built-in plug-ins that are handy when surfing the net and uploading images.

Okay, let's get started. So, I want to upload two images on the linkclub. First thing I'll do is go to the club itself (of course, how can upload images when you're not on a club?), then go to the images section.
I prefer to go to the images section and pick which type of image I will upload, because if I pick the general one, sometimes some pictures get sent to the icon section.

Users: Fanpop? (knocks)
Do you want to fix your problem?
Come on, let's go and fix!
I never see you anymore
Come out the door
It's like you've gone away

We used to be best buddies
And now we're not
I wish you would tell me why!

Do you want to fix your problem?
It doesn't have to be a problem...

Fanpop: Go away, Fanpoppers.

Users: Okay, bye...

Users: (knocks)
Do you want to fix your problem?
Or change the theme to other colors?

The icons on the spots!

Oh fanpop,
What have we done?
Oh fanpop,
What's going on?
Oh fanpop,
Why are you going insane?
Please,
someone explain.

Hello fanpoppers. I'm Meeka if you don't already know me and I write this article to seriously ask, what the fluff is going on here?

Problem #1:Wall posting

A lot of people are having problems with this, including me. And I'm seriously upset. For me it's been happening to me for 3 weeks now. I've signed in multiple times to see if that would fix it. I've used different computers. And nothing seems to work. I'm mad because when I see my friends post some thing I get mad because I can't add a comment, or I can't update on my wall. I have to put my photo editing Contest on hold because of this issue because then if I keep going I won't be able to distribute props. #Extremelyupset.

Hello Friends.
I am not good at making articles this is some kind of forum and I want you all to join in to get a chatbar back.
Fanpop without chatbar seems useless
It feels like nobody is online and I am lonely surfing around ._. This feeling sucks :/
please friends do contribute comment here and I'll send this forum to Papa (Mr.David) the admin of Fanpop
I hope we will get a chatbar
Or if it will be impossible then also a thing will remain that we tried v.v
You can also suggest chatbars in comments
Thank you.

Since some people seem to be asking this question a lot, here is an easy step by step guide to making a club.


First, go to the top of any page you are on. You will see the words fanpop! what are you a fan of? You will have to click on it.




It will take you to the main page as shown below. Where you will see different topics being shown. If you look to your right, you will see the Quiz polls.



Just scroll down until you reach the bottom of the quiz question, you will see a button that says Create a New Club Click it to continue.




It will take you to the club maker. Where you will see the chart which you have to fill out to make your club. Make sure everything fits the club you wish to make.




If you type in a club name and it shows up below, that means that club has already been made. Duplicate clubs are not aloud, even if you change the name even a little, such as 'Harry Poter 4ever'. So make sure before you make a club it is...

Ok so I'm sooo sorry If I waited to long to do the story I SWEAR! that i'm going to do it tomorrow i'm so sorry. I have to many problems and i'm very emotional the last couple of days and it's a big problem with my family and i'm very sad but i really will start the story I swear! I cant really tell u about my family issues but I need someone to talk to. But on the other hand if you can be my co-writer i would LOVE that but you have to be good like not basic, you know how when people push the story too fast...

Example for some of you dumbass trifflin ass cunt ass bitches: Yolanda dated this boy named Prince then he bullied her then he liked her afterwards the got married had a baby named Rolanda and Prince got hit by a car trying to see an old friend a cross the street 2 years later Yolanda sold Rolanda n got on crack,died, and lived happily ever after with Prince in heaven.

Hi Fanpoppers. It's been a while since I've posted an article in the Fanpop Club, but I wanted to let all of you know about a recent problem we've run into and see if we could implore you - the awesome Fanpop community - to help us out

(I know, I know, I'm sure many of you are thinking only one problem? There's a LOT of problems on Fanpop, Papa! A LOT!!! Alas, for today, we're only going to focus on one problem!)

As you know, Fanpop is home to a lot of clubs covering a wide range of topics and interests and within those clubs there's a great amount of latitude given to what kind of content you can post.

However, one type of content that has proven increasingly problematic for us is the posting of explicit or pornographic content on Fanpop.

Per the terms of service:
"You may not post content that...is pornographic or sexually explicit in nature..."

Since that definition might be a little ambiguous to some, allow me to elucidate (I apologize for being so blunt, but I want to be very clear): no exposed breasts or genitals, no butt cracks or full-cheeked buttocks, no explicit sex acts of any sort...

Today on June 6th, The Meebo bar was not working. Many fans could not log on and all of them thought that it was a glitch or a fail. But then, according to snakemanfan, Google shut down Meebo permanently to work on Google+. It is totally damn stupid. I know that many people use the meebo bar in order for chatting on Fanpop and other stuff, But this is just sad. Google want to dominate the whole internet. Just because Google+ is being updated just does not mean that you have to shut down the Meebo bar permanently. So today, We have to say our Final Words to the Meebo bar as it shuts down forever.

This will be a really sad thing for users who have used the Meebo Bar. I really do not know if they will replace it or bring it back, But for now, Meebo is gone, Forever. :( :( :(

Everyone has been thinking about the secret of the glitch. Yes. It's the great-o-legendary glitch of multiple answers. A lot of fanpoppers have even earned a lot of medals by posting the images of this glitch. Okay, I hate to bring this to you that you are also responsible for posting double or multiple answers. It's actually not a glitch at all. So, what is it? What's the secret? Now, I'm going to reveal the secret. So, don't get your undies in a bunch. This is the magic formula of multiple answering: 1)First, click the "answer this question" button 2)Now, you have entered the fresh page of submitting your response. WAIT! Don't answer now! You'll miss the secret, silly. Now, copy the link of that page 3)Then, open a new tab. 4)Paste the link on the url search bar in your browser. You know, the way you usually go to any other links :P 5)Magic time! Alaca jam. Alaca pie. Böo! Now, answer the question and click the "submit a new response" button. 6)Now that you have answered this question once..it's time to give the second answer in the same question. Close the tab and return to old fresh page where you still haven't submit your response. Remember? It's the one you left...

Bullying. One of the greatest monsters in the world
Tips
1.If you see someone getting bullied tell them to stop.And report it to an adult who cares.

2.Violence is never the answer.And not the right thing to do.It may just make it worse.

3.If you are bullying someone.STOP. Don't harm other people's lives.And you could also get in huge trouble.

Stop bullying.One of the worst things in the world .Never bully anyone. Speak up and stand up Stop Bullying.

https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/stop-cispa-cyber-intelligence-sharing-and-protection-act/19sQhBpy

See, CISPA is back. You remember SOPA and PIPA from last year? basically the same thing, can you please take a short minute out of your time to sign this important petition?. It is a big threat to Fanpop! and other sites such as Youtube, Tumblr, Deviantart, etc

Sorry to bother!

Even people outside of the United States need to sign this! because it will affect your country as well, since most websites (including this one) are made and still running in United States

This will block all the fandom things on this site and others, and will also get rid of the Music, Movies, and even filthy pronz!

Not only is it just an ultimate Anti-Piracy bill, it will get rid of freedom all around the world. Destroying the Internet and many lives, do you want the U.S Government looking at your history? please sign it before it's too late!

Do you like Harry Potter ? Do you like Twlight ? Ever go on you tube & see fanvideos . There called Video Montages & they are a lot of fun to make. The key to a successful montage , is using the right software .Knowing how import & edit your materials is impotent.

Get started by downloading “ Google Chrome “ . Now type Google chrome type in “ Chrome exertions .org “ in the search engine . Get the “ youtbe video downloader “ & “ you tube mp3 downloader “ . You can just go you tube & download whatever you want. Downloads should save your computer nicely , as if you were saving picture. You are going to need a video editor. Windows computer come with “Windows Live movie maker “

Let me tell you how I first discovered fanpop. (Just bored so thought I'd write this)

I was on the net looking for pictures. I then came across a site (Which is this one really) and clicked the link.
I never knew what this site was or what and thought it was one of those many sites like twitter and Facebook.

Browsing some more I accidentally landed on someone's profile page and scrolling down say there were pic's looking like cubes. On top there were titled 'Clubs'.

I noticed a familiar icon of my favourite actor and clicked on it.

It was cool, it was like a website just full of that actors info.

I noticed they had quizzes and took part.

Than I released that you had to sign up to record what you got right/wrong etc.

Thats when I decided to log on and realised I was SOOO ADDICTED TO IT!

(Hey I don't even spend so0 much time like this on Facebook!)

Why isn't Fanpop GREEN!?
Dear Loyal Fanpoppers,

I want to start by thanking you for being the passionate and committed community of users that you are. We realize that there have been a lot of big changes that have been happening here on Fanpop over the past several weeks. We appreciate your patience as we try to make the site better for everyone. Not just to the existing community of Fanpop but also to new members of the site. We know that there have been many vocal users that are unhappy with the redesign. As with any situation, most people hate change and we sympathize. People like what they are familiar and comfortable with and get angry when things are different because they have to relearn things.

Fanpop has had pretty much the same design since we launched in 2006. Since then, there have been a lot of learnings and advances in the user design/experience community. That and the site was really starting to look like it was launched in 2006, except that it was 5 years later. There were things that users just couldn’t do because our interface was so dated and wasn’t designed to handle these updates. We’ve been working really hard on the redesign for almost...

Kidding as usual. Actually, it's Sunday and I have some spare time on my hands so I thought I would write up some points I think need changing with the new layoot and I invite you to CONSTRUCTIVELY make your points in the comments. My idea behind this is to have a collection of concerns that we can show the F4. This way instead of ranting and going "OMG I HATE DIS!" we can make ourselves heard. I know the F4 are awesome and have listened to us in the past. Remember the wall debacle? Remember how they changed the layoot after we pointed it oot? Remember how they brought back the forums?

EXACTLY! So let us have all criticism in one place and then I will send them a link and maybe they have time to read our thoughts.
All in all I think we need to remember that fanpop is a business. Some of the changes made are sometimes business descisions: I remember how I hated the "popular content" module and then papa explained how it helped the Search Engine Optimization and now I just ignore it, knowing it is keeping fanpop busy and alive!

I was quite shocked by the changed look of Fanpop, it looks as if it were Facebook, I have nothing against a few changes, banner designs? okay I would be fine with that, no more Icons? I would be fine with that too. But changing the whole site is a little much, don't you think? Not that theres anything wrong with it, but I do believe that I joined Fanpop, not Facebook. All I'm saying is that I believe this change was much to sudden, rushed if you would like. Thats all I'm trying to say, I don't want to be reported for this, so please understand that this is just my opinion. Tell me what you think of the new Fanpop.

This is more of a list than an actual article, compiled from picks and conversations about The Screencap Situation. Thank you to everyone who contributed a point that's been used here - even if you didn't know this would get posted. You're the ones who wrote this. I'm just the dummy who thought it was necessary to post in article form. Desperate times, friends.

Why Fanpop Needs Screencaps

-Screencaps have been added since before there was a screencap category. Now that there's definitely a demand for them here, they'll still get posted - in the photos section. It's already happening. Actual photos are getting buried, and will never be seen again. It's a mess.

-Fanpop is the only place on the web (that any of us could find) that allows any user to post screencaps to any club. Most other fan sites are geared toward something specific (actor, television show) and only allow administrators to share screencaps. This makes Fanpop unique, because they allow(ed) anyone to participate.

♥♥This is my third tutorial on this so I won't be giving you anymore links or letting you know how to make bold, italic, or underlined font you can click either or link or link to see resources and how to do these things♥♥

Part 1: This part is the 'Name' part what I did with my name was- ♥♥♥♥••• נσнαηηαн •••♥♥♥♥ - just edit and past the keyboard symols and do the same with the name which you can find out how to give your name that font by checking out my previous tutorails.

Part 2: For the second part which I liked to call the 'Favorites' part I used 2 heart symbols to begin with and then made the font Italic and made my most favorite tv show underlined&Italic I also spaced each tv show out with a dot which you can just copy and paste the same dots&hearts used on the name and lastly ended each section with 2 hearts.

#1 Name/Icon: Ok I'll start off with the icon pick an icon that is an icon you made or get one from a spot, but if your using someone else's make sure to credit them, icons usually attract more fans depending on the what your icon is so for example my current icon is of Buffy Summers from Buffy the Vampire Slayer so it may attract more Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans than it would Charmed fans, you get my point?. Also a rule in my book with icons is to NEVER have poor quality, unedited icons, they don't look good and definitely won't attract more fans also do NOT ever have this panda bear or this dog icon I keep seeing everywhere, it is unattractive and lame, that's just my opinion I'm not trying to be rude...

Now what I want to show you is how you can make your profile look a tad more interesting. This is my first tutorial so be kind, sit back, relax, and enjoy!♥♥

#1 Name: There are a bunch of different ways you can write your name in, now what I did here is put a couple of symbols before and after my name and for the letters of my name I did circles around them. The symbols come from link all you have to do is copy and past them where you'd like, the specific symbols that I used before my name are- ƸӜƷ¸.•´ -and the symbols I used after my name are- ¸.•*ღƸ̴Ӂ̴Ʒ - Now for the actual name part I made my name look like this- ⒿⓞⒽⓐⓝⓝⓐⓗ - you can also use the same website I gave you before for the symbols or you can click link which is a link to somewhere that will generate your name in a bunch of different kinds of letters for you...

Duplicate images tend to really bother me in certain spots, and I’ve observed that I’m far from the only one. I know it’s difficult sometimes to know if an image has been uploaded into a spot or not when there are 999,483,937 uploads, especially when they’re lacking in the keyword department.

Google has this nice new feature called a Reverse Image Search. With a reverse image search, you are able to upload or link an image into the search bar and you’ll be given a list of web pages containing your selected image.

(I’m about to walk you through the steps. I’ll be using a picture from link)

* First, visit link. (tinyeye.com is also another reverse image search engine, but it doesn’t have Fanpop in its database, so don’t bother.)
* Click on the camera icon located at the end of the search bar.

You want to wish your fans a Merry Christmas (well, if you celebrate it, that is), but come on, just a plain old "Merry Christmas" is boring! Here are a few ideas on how to wish your Fanpop friends Happy Holidays in style!

1. Post a cool design on their wall. There are tons of great Christmas designs floating around out there. All you have to do is copy and paste. Here are a few ideas:

*Note: This is sarcastic. Just in case anyone actually thinks I mean what I say here.*



Okay, so like, we all know that it’s SOOOO much fun to hate stuff, right? Who cares about those jealous losers who are all like, “It’s so immature, blah blah blah!”. They’re just jealous they didn’t come up with the cool idea of HatePop first! So anyways, without further ado, I present my top 4 reasons (in no particular order) of why you should totally make a hate club ASAP!



1. It gets you lots of attention!

Hello, have you SEEN how many people comment and post on answers and picks asking them to join your hate club? Who CARES if they’re all comments like, “You’re so immature”, “Get a life!”, or “You’re such a jerk, GTFO”?! No such thing as bad press, right? You want your fifteen minutes of Fanpop fame? Ask everyone to join your hate club publicly! Who knows, you might even get some rude comments from people on your wall as well, if you’re REALLY lucky!

Happy Birthday Fanpop!
Five years ago today, I was sitting in my living room with link, link, and link when together we pressed a button on a keyboard and released Fanpop to the world. We had no idea what was in store for us or for the site, but we had a dream to build something really cool and we hoped others would like it. For months and months we toiled away at our computers designing and coding what you all see today. We talked endlessly about features and ideas. Papa and I mocked them up and Cliff and Michael programmed them into reality. You grow pretty tight when you spend that many days and nights together. We went from being Fansters to Fanspots and finally launched as Fanpop on August 1, 2006. We had a small number of test users that had been using our closed beta site but now we were opening the doors to the public and it was scary. What if no one came? What if people hated the site? What if we had to give up and go get desk jobs at some office cube farm again? So many "what ifs" overwhelmed us that day.

How much is too much? When it comes to Fanpop, it's hard to tell. So check out this handy guide! Feel free to add on any you think of too.

You know you spend too much time on Fanpop when......

1. Your hands are permanently bent into the shape of your computer mouse.

2. You see something cool that you'd like to share and try to take a screencap of it from your eyes.

3. You spend more time with your online friends than your real friends.

4. You start thinking up potential usernames for everyone you meet.

5. Who cares about celebrities? The days of wanting to meet your favorite movie star are over! Now all you do is daydream about meeting the F4.

6. Fanpop NEEDS it's own reality show. Why the heck doesn't it have one yet?!?! I'm so writing another complaint letter to every TV studio I've ever heard of!

7. Whenever you're writing, you keep writing in HTML tags to try and bolden, underline, or italicize your writing.

For you fanpoppers who has been on Fanpop for quite some time, and the ones who know the rules, you know that hate clubs are strictly against the rules.

But for you idiots who ask: Join My Hate Club, your chances of getting your club removed are 100%. Especially if it's about Rebecca Black or Justin Bieber. Look, as much as you "hate" anyone, there's no point in making a HATE club about it. It's wrong and mean.

But this one is for people who hate with passion. When you hate someone, you hate them, correct? So making a club that you "hate" them is gonna make you feel good about hating? No, it's just because you envy or dislike them. Hate is 4 letters, 1 syllable, and one strong word.

Oh, by the way, if you wanna hate someone and make a club about it, this is fanpop. Not hatepop. Got it?

BTW, now, if any of you see a hate club, report it AND the user. It's just a better solution.

P.S., if you dislike, don't make a club about THAT either!!

...OMG PORN! No, just kidding. I wanted you to click this article.

We all know (or at least I hope we know) that fanpop is a porn-free, happy, rainbow-colored PG-13 land. (whether you like it or not is not the topic of discussion here - we shall accept it as it is)
What's great is that we can still manage to have a sex spot and a breast spot which are clean. No pictures of nipples, no porn gifs, no hardcore anal porn videos.
Good.

Now what's the bad part?
I've seen it rather often lately that some user just mentioned words like "porn" or "nudity" and a very angry mob of users was ready to drown the unlucky one in the holy waters of Mount Doom.

case1)
A user asked a question on the sex spot. It said something about whether or not it is animal abuse if you let your dog perform oral on you.
Nowhere did the user hint that they were a supporter of animal abuse nor did they add pictures of...said thingy...in the pick.

This chapter of the Fanpop user identification guide is all about Medal whores. Maybe you think you may have come across one a while back, or you’re just not sure how to classify the one you just met? Check out this handy guide!

The Spammer: Forget about actually helping a club, this user just wants their medal, and doesn’t give a rip how they get it. Have you guessed that this type of Medal Whore uploads tons of useless, similar, or identical contributions just to get a medal? If so, congratulations, you’re correct. Think pages and pages of picks with maybe just the choices flipped around, heaps of almost identical images, (They aren’t the same-just look really, really closely!), stacks of video’s that have already been uploaded, just these are by different YouTube users, etc. Sadly, you can’t really report these people, since their contributions, possibly by a bit of a stretch, technically ARE relevant. And no, this person doesn’t really care if they’re clogging up the clubs image/video/links section, nor do they respond to polite comments about how they really aren’t helping the club at all. These people tend to not announce...

Note: This is just for fun. I do not claim to know the specifics, thoughts, or actions of medals. The words and views spoken or expressed by the “medal” or the interviewer (me) are in no way affiliated with the F4 or Fanpop itself, unless you count the fact that I’m posting this on Fanpop.

Today, I, Kate, will be conducting an interview with a Dedicated (green) medal. That’s right folks, a real, actual medal! After much persuasion, and promises of many future contributions to “feed” the medal (this will be explained in the interview), I managed to persuade one of my Dedicated medals to allow me to interview it! **To retain the medal’s anonymity, I will refrain from mentioning what spot it’s for** All you ever wanted to learn about the private life and thoughts of medals-here’s your chance!

KateKicksAss: Hello, Dedicated Medal, thank you so much for agreeing to this little interview!

Dedicated Medal: No problem! You’re not going to put this on TV, are you? Because I’m really not high enough of a medal to make such an appearance….

Tip No. 2 in action!
Have you ever wanted to act like a total jerk on Fanpop? Piss people off, lose your fans, drive everyone crazy, and maybe even get banned, you just weren’t sure how? Here’s a handy guide on how to do exactly that!



1. Disrespect other people’s opinions. Yeah, YOU think that band XYZ sucks and you wouldn’t touch one of their CD’s with a ten-foot pole, and you’re going to assume that everyone on the planet shares your sentiment. Who cares if some people might not appreciate you going on about how the lead singer looks like a bald gorilla and sings like a cat throwing up? They should be glad you’re sharing your wisdom and insights-how on earth could you be being OFFENSIVE? And now that you mention it….what does offensive even mean again?

2. Shamelessly Medal-Whore. What? How could it possibly be annoying to bug everyone on your fanlist to fan and comment on your contributions? It’s not like it’s a lot of trouble for them….I mean, they practically OWE you, right, after all the time YOU spent posting on their walls asking them to! Go ahead and keep spamming their walls if they ignore your...

My first image on my profile, back in 2007
Hello, it's likely that unless you're a long time user of Fanpop, or one of it's founding four, you won't recognise my username.

I was a very prominent user, 2007 - 2009 probably, but as I was 19 when I joined back then, I was without many responsibilities, and had plenty of time to dedicate to Fanpop, and was proud to watch it grow, and change and develop.

I wasn't happy with all the changes, but I stood by those I was. I had a few arguments in my time, and saw users I'd known for a long time, such as kathiria82 leave, and eventually my quote from link would be used by Fanpop to sell link to potential buyers so Fanpop can keep running.

[i]The other week I realised that this is where I truly belong. Where I can make picks about things I love, add images to make spots better, and add links and videos that I'm suprised aren't on here already, as communicating with other fans and writing articles about anything that exist only here. I can finally say, that after all that searching: I'm home...and I will...

Fanpop isn't too bad as it is, but here are some changes that could be made:

1. Specify images by URL. 1PokeMastr and I are Wiinet users, so we can't upload images such as icons and banners for any clubs that we'd make. If this change was made, we could post our images by putting in the URL of the images.

2. Highlight club creators. With spots that are basically famous like Random, Fanpop FAIL!, and Anime, it's hard to tell who created the club in the first place. If this change was made, the name of the club's creator would show up in the club's motto. This way, we could PM the creator if we wanted the icon or banner to be changed.

3. An actual security code, if not a better one (I forget if you put in a security code when registering). I've seen a few spambots on Fanpop. Putting in a displayed security code when registering proves that you're human. This is why you don't see spambots on Steam or StepMania Online. Both sites have you put in a displayed security code when you first create your account. With Steam, if you keep putting in the wrong password, you have to put in a security code to prove that you're human. If this change was...

I guess you're already kind of resolved about this, but I thought I'd tell you my standing on it anyway.

If I receive messages and wall posts asking for me to join spots or 'fan' content from Fanpoppers who I have had no prior contact with, and I'm busy, I simply ignore their pleas, with the safe assumption that they've sent them to dozens of people, and even if I didn't want to upset them by being non-responsive, they wouldn't notice.
However, when I have nothing on my hands (Fanpop-wise), I tend to check out their content and see if it's any good, and if I think it contributes to the club well, even if I'm not a personal fan of the content, I'll fan it so that fans of the club will prioritise it higher and thus receive enjoyment from it. If it's bad content, I leave it. And I never fan clubs which people ask me to unless I AM a fan of the club, and prepared to contribute content and join in at some point down the track to and with that club.

But this is merely my own reaction to such questions. From the points you have raised:

Taking a leaf from Kate who is kicking annoying Fanpoppers, THETACOMAN now makes a guide for trolls-
Idiota Piticus, aka Self-Pity troll. This troll is rather annoying. Its really hard to tell if this troll has a problem, or is just complaining. Disgusting how much attention they pay themselves.
Danger- low. All trolls have some level of danger. While they may fly off at you for no absolute reason, self pity usually stops them from causing any real trouble.
Idiota Zelos aka Overzelous troll. This troll often uses religion (or lack thereof) as a sheild for their hate. Citing holy books and/or specific therum are commonplace. They often cling to specific ideas, and when questioned become dangerous.
Danger-Annoying. As a former member of a subspecies of this troll, idiota zelos christoph, I can say we are very annoying. I realize my actions were not called for, and reformed my ways. Nevertheless, not all zealots are dangerous. Some are truly devoted to their beleifs, as I hope I am now.

The Fanwhore: Have you ever been added by someone, and then when you went to their profile to possibly add them back, saw only posts with things like "Thanks for the add!" as far as the eye could see? Congrats, you've just met a Fanwhore. This person is pretty much just obsessed with getting fans. They can spend hours adding people, and will usually add back anyone who adds them. They tend to have obscenely large numbers of fans, and to get them obscenely fast. Can go ballistic if they haven't gained at least five new fans in the last hour.
Also, some Fanwhores tend to reform after a while, and stop obsessively adding people, but it isn't very common.
Note: Not everyone who has a large number of fans is a Fanwhore, some people are just good fanpoppers and just happen to be well liked and get added by a lot of people. Or they might be reformed Fanwhores.
Classification: Mostly harmless. Avoid if they haven't gained any new fans in the last twenty-four hours, as that is likely to lead to meltdowns. Much less annoying than many other types of fans. Just be sure not to mention anything about "Quantity is better than quality" in their...

It's not often you see me write an article, but I felt this had to be done.

During my time here, I have noticed that there have been people trying to pose as certain celebrities, e.g. Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, even Justin Bieber, and no one knows just who the real ones are. Well, I'm afraid to tell you all this, but I feel I have to. If you don't want to read what I'm saying now, go to another page and look at something else.

NONE OF THE CELEBS HERE ARE REAL!!!!!!!

I've looked over many different profiles of people who claim to be a certain celebrity, and I've happened to notice that a lot of the pictures in their photo albums seem to be edited in Photoshop. I've seen more authentic copies of these photos over Google images, and do you know what? They are totally different and more realistic compared to the ones that posers put up on Fanpop. Another thing about these pics is that some posers forget they are that celeb and title pictures as 'her', 'his' or 'their'. A typical clue. It's a wonder why no one's ever noticed this little error, and just shows how gullible some people are around here.

What else would the Medal Whore be thinking about?
Not sure about all the different Fanpop users out there? Check out this handy guide! Have a look at some of the extremes of Fanpop-dom without even having to meet users like these. Also, not trying to offend anyone with this, this is just for fun, :)

The Obsessed Fan: As guessable by the name, this fans level of fandom goes above and beyond normal fans. They are likely to have a username that pertains to their obsession somehow. Ex: TwiEdwardLuvr, GagaMonster, Shakespeare4Life, etc. (Note: just because someone has a username pertaining to a certain fandom does not automatically classify someone as an Obsessed Fan). They probably spend all their time hanging out on the spot of their obsession or mentioned in their username, and also tend to join every spot they can find related to their obsession, no matter how pointless the spot may be.
Classification: Slightly dangerous, can be somewhat unstable. Do not insult their fandom anywhere near their vicinity unless you have a death wish. Merely mentioning that you don't really like what they're a fan of can send them into fits of rage. Deal with Obsessive fans with extreme...

We've all seen the Fanpop Spotlight tabs. That little display area on the homepage that let us know about the latest celebrity gossip, new television episodes, and upcoming movies. But ever since joining Fanpop, i've always wondered why the Spotlight is just limiting itself to popular visual media. Why should television, movies, and actors just get noticed. Congratz, you have oficially stumbled upon my idea for more Spotlight Tags!

Music - Celebrities
Who just released a new single or won at the Music Awards? Who is starring in an upcoming movie? What's something scandalous a celebrity did at the club last might? Many could argue that the "Hot Topics" tab could pretty much cover all of this. But for those of us who are possibly-maybe-slightly OCD, it's another way to keep everything organized. The downside is that it would take more room, though.


Books
There's no way to describe how amazing it would be to have this tab. (To me at least^^) We could learn what book is being made into a movie, and what the top bestseller is! Not to mention when the newest book in a series is coming out. If that doesn't sound...

What is this pop-out you speak of?

The pop-out button is on the left side of your screen and provides access to your favorite clubs at all times. This way you don't have to go to your profile or use the search to navigate between clubs. HA HA kidding..I know nobody ever uses the search!





















By default your poop-out will have your most active clubs displayed for easy access.

Why are keywords so important?
What are keywords?

Why should I use them?

How can keywords help me?




Keywords are tags that you place on the content you submit to Fanpop so that other fans can find it. You don't need to use a lot of them, just the relevant ones. You'll want to use words that describe what's in the content. Who is in it, what episode it's from, etc.

Example:

This example is very simple. It's an icon from the show Supernatural [keyword], the subject is Dean [keyword], it's from episode 4x18 [keyword] 'The Monster at the End of This Book' [keyword].

It's also sometimes helpful to say what kind of image it is. For icons, wallpapers, fanart and screencaps it's unnecessary because there are already categories that will sort that for you. But episode stills and promotional photos all just end up in the photo section.

Example:

I had the chance to get an interview with link from the F4. I hope you'll enjoy reading his answers to the questions I asked him as much as I did!
Here goes a big THANKS! to him, link, link and link for interacting so much with us users and making fanpop a great site!

As a member of the F4 - how many messages per day do you get from fanpop users?
papa:It varies. Some days there's a lot of messages, some days not so much. But a dozen or more a day isn't unusual. The most common request I get is to change a club icon/banner/motto. I'm always happy to do this (and we definitely need a better way to manage how this happens!). The second most common question I get is usually about medals (why don't I have one? when will I get my red medal? etc.).

I try to respond to what I can in a timely fashion. Fortunately, since there's 4 of us, I'm guessing the other guys also get their share.

... or someone's way to scream at somebody.

Today's Fanpop has more people mean and sarcastic then others. I'm not against it, but I don't have to be.

For those "yelled" at constantly, that means you're doing something WRONG! And it only leads to disaster. What might you do wrong?
• Spamming
• Spelling names wrong
• Using incorrect grammar
• Posting miscategorized pictures, picks, questions(answers), etc. to a spot
• Hating on the person's spot
• Impersonating a celebrity
• Making a hate spot

If you do any of those things, you WILL be yelled at or sarcastically talked to. And don't be a baby and cry about it. FIX IT!

Don't go on the Twilight Series spot and say: I HATE THIS STUFF! People will scream at you. Maybe even report you if it's too serious.

Fans, do not kill yourself because I told you this is OKAY to do.

Removing your own account is a pretty new feature, many people may not be aware of it yet.
If you go to Edit Profile and scroll all the way down, you'll find:
If you'd like to remove your account, click here.

Now what does this mean?

If you delete your account, you must know that:
Your contributions will not be deleted.

All your images, links, comments, forum posts, wall posts, replies remain on fanpop, next to your username.
If you click on that username however, you will be redirected to the fanpop main page.

The spots you created are not affected. If you create a spot, you always create it for everyone, it's not like you're the queen of this spot.

And she made me a club called Spunky Jay she loved doing that!!! So I bounded with her and I still am we become closer as the days go by!

Hello fanpoppers! Gabriella here with some things about Fanpop. Just wanted to say some things...



According to current Fanpop users, the people [on fanpop] are annoying and mean. Well let me just comment on that- that is true!

Yeah, I could be mean at points but this is the dang internet! Nobody MUST like you! It is a choice to like one another but you have to show some respect!

When you look at a user's profile. You may think: Oh.. so this person likes glee and scooby-doo? What you think is different from what you do. Remember that. If you go on their wall, before you post hate and though messages think: Will it hurt them?

Some are strong and don't care about what people say about them. They move on. Others, get highly offended and that's where you end up being the bully! They're the victim, your the bully!

It's not a great thing knowing that right? Nope. You want to know a certain amount of people like you.

Hello, today you will be reading a way to help yourself avoid the haters! If you have a hater or haters, this might be the simple article for you!

Example, someone said:

"seriously? High School Musical 3?? This movie is for douche bags"

Don't feel offended! The BEST way to ignore that or make the person go away is doing what I said:

"No it's not. And thank you for the fine compliment."

They might leave you alone then! If they don't, the best thing to do is block them (even though blocking does not stop them from posting all over your contributes)!

And if it really annoys you, report them. It's that simple!

But, if they come back, don't leave Fanpop. Don't report them again! Wait until they do something wrong, inappropriate, or offensive.

WARNING: Never abuse the report button because you might be harmed if it is done!

That's all for now! :)

Dear fellow-fanpoppers,

Recently Fanpop introduced a new feature to our profile pages:

The Showcase!

Eventhough it’s not a very complicated feature, there seem to be quite a few questions surrounding the caps. This gave me the idea of writing this article, answering the most aksed questions. Let me first say that everything I write is based on how I think this new feature works. I’m not one of the fabulous F4, so please correct me if I’m wrong about something.

1. What is the Showcase?
This question was answerd by F4 Dave: “The new showcase is for your Fanpop bottlecap collection that will continue to grow with new and exciting caps based on your participation and activity across the site.” In other words, the Showcase is the place on your profile page where all your caps are presented.

2. What are Caps?
Caps are rewards that can be earned in different ways (that I’ll explain later). Consider them prices for various things you do on Fanpop. They have no further purpose, it’s just fun to get them.

For reasons as of yet unknown, Fanpop seems to have something against the website b l o g s p o t . c o m -- posting links from this site will cause you to get temporarily suspended.
We first noticed this when I tried to link a blog from that site with my 'main' account, lucius_malloy, and got temporarily suspended. Later this happened with a total of six other accounts: luciusmalloy (my first back-up account), harrypotterbest, Accio_Pandorica, lumiss, Gemonkus and germany123.
We have contacted Fanpop about this issue and are hoping for a reply soon, but in the mean time, we are warning you against posting links from the site-that-shall-not-be-named for fear of suspension. Feel free to test out this theory if you want, but it is advised you do it with a separate account created for this purpose.

Of course these user-names may already be taken. If so, then just add a number/nickname on the end. Or you can take some words, re-arrange and improvise:)
The ones with the * beside them are my favourites:)

As the 'Answers' section keeps getting clogged up with more and more spam and miscategorized content I feel the need to introduce you all to a part of Fanpop that would solve so many problems if only people would use it.

What are Forums? The Forums are for use of discussions. Things that may not have a few solid answers (use picks for that). Where you can create long winded discussions.

Why should I use the Forums and not post all my useless questions in Answers? Because Answers is where you are asking a question that would have a factual answer to that you do not know.

Technically speaking what is the difference between Forums and Answer? In Answers you can only submit one answer but with forums you can post multiple times.

What are you talking about? Where is all this spam happening? ._. ...someone will ask this I know they will.


So seriously...use the forum. Or picks! The things being posted can easily be turned into a pick or forum topic...JUST STOP PUTTING THEM ALL IN ANSWERS!!

I LOVE fanpop! I wish I was here years earlier ! It thrills me to no end that I can talk to people from all over the world! I have met some really lovely, charming, friendly people here! I met my new husband here! We can't be any happier! A fan of ours even made a club about us! (it's the Speter club!) Thanks sapherequeen! I fanned (and they fanned me back!) 2 of the fab 4, Dave and papa ! They found out about Peter and I meeting here then getting married! They were very happy and congratulated us! That was soooo cool ! Sorry I don't know the other 2 :/ Random is really fun because I can post random images! My favorite club is 'God-the-Creator' and of course 'Speter' ~LOL~ The only thing I don't like is the childish behavior of some of the people. And the hate :P Over all, there is more good than bad :)

The 1st person i talked was link and i talked to her and asked her that can i be your fan!!!!it's so bad that she left fanpop...she was a good person...she talked to me friendly and she was my 1st fan and friend!!!!
i started seeing fanpop....joining clubs and doing stuff...my 1st prop was from link, he gave me prop and told me that he likes my icon....it was a cool thing...seeing a prop up of my profile...then i started talking to people with prop or massage and found good people.

Hello =)

Sit down, shut up and listen to my (pretty much) unnecessary but still quite fun idea #401.
You may laugh afterwards.
But now...Silence and pay attention!

Disclaimer: Yes I admit it, I didn't come up with this idea on my own, I saw something similar years ago on a german website.

Here we go...
POPCOINS
Popcoins are virtual fanpop money.
The idea came to my mind when I was thinking about a possibility to change one's username without being able to change it all the time and without having to pay real money.

This is how popcoins would work:
There would be a popcoin symbol right next to where the props are.
Yes of course I made an image for you =) If I present an idea I do it properly.


You wouldn't have to pay real money to get popcoins, the idea is the following:

Quizzes:

Expand viewing answerers to ALL fanpoppers,not just from the fanlist.

Being able to edit the quiz at all times,and not just the question,but the 4 answers.

Giving more creative names for super-quiz milestones,shortening them up a little,and making the current prize visible on the profile.

Giving a time limit to answer a quiz,people sometimes go on websites to check their answers,it's not fair!

Not making a limit for number of characters for answers.

Stop deleting quizzes for the wrong reasons,research it first (I know how many quizzes get reported everyday,but it's their job,isn't it?)

Making leader boards for most answers,Most difficult,and quiz makers among friends.

Being able to navigate to the last page of quizzes immediately.

--------------

Picks

Giving a full list of answerers for each answer.

I can't help but notice lately that a lot of people have been creating Verified Fanpop Accounts. At first, I thought it was some kind of program Fanpop put in order. Then I realized that it's just another way that people are faking 'celebrity accounts.'

But, real or not, it's actually a really cool thing to do to your profile! And it's really easy, so anybody can do it!

Directions:
- Open your profile for editing. In the section where you would usually put your last name, copy or type in: ✔ Verified Fanpop Account

Congradulations, your officially your actual self^^

Be creative!

Instead of just typing it in, try to do something creative with your signiture. Mine says ✔ Verified Epic Person. But do something that describes yourself. ✔ Verified Buffy Lover, anyone?



And, instead of the little box, try using a different symbol. I'll admit, I don't understand how to create the keyboard symbols. But I do understand copy and paste! So here are a few symbols to help you out!

Livejournal can be quite confusing for people who don't use it, so here's a short guide including the most important things you have to think of when crediting icons from livejournal.

Why do I even have to credit?
You won't go to jail if you don't, but...
1.)People spend quite some time making icons and crediting them is a sign of respect
Think about how you would feel if you made some icons and suddenly you'd find them on some other site without your name mentioned anywhere.
2.)So you repost some pretty icons from livejournal, another fanpopper sees them and wants to see more icons from the person who made them.
If you didn't add credit, they have no idea where to look for more.

Can I just put "livejournal" as credit?
Of course you "can", but it sucks butt. Do you know how many livejournal users there are? Right.

So I just put the name of the livejournal user and that's okay?

Ah props. They used to be a way to acknowledge on a peer to peer level that someone has posted something good. Back in my day we used to give props if someone posted a good video, or said something intelligent but now they're thrown out like...condoms in high schools? *shrugs*

What are props?
Props are small medals that you can give to other users if you see them post something good.
eg; User_X posts a good video, User_Y gives User_X a video prop!

How can I give someone a prop?
You can give users props by going to their profile and clicking on the "Give Props" button, then type them a short message of what you appreciated and choose the correct prop type.

I see other users throwing props around, so it should be ok?
If you saw those other users jump off a cliff would you also do it...if you answer yes then the internet may not be a good place for you.

What are some bad examples of prop giving?
