Hey guys i couldn't really find a link or anything about the fanpop chat, so this is basically my guide about the functions, a bit about etiquette and a few tips thrown in here and there. I have also researched a list of all the meebo emotions and all the different keyboard shortcuts for the users that where asking, hopefully some of you will find it useful. You don't need to check everything out, although it appears lengthier than it is, everything is, as always set in to subheadings for those of you who like to scan articles :D, enjoy.

The rooms are ran by a company called meebo and...

Ok, now I know that there are other articles out there about keeping Fanpop clean in terms of language and being appropriate but it is obviously not enough seeing as people continue to ignore it.

I am not by any means trying to be rude or bossy. I am not your mother. My goal in writing this is hopefully a common one among Fanpop users, to make Fanpop a joyful place for all users.

Topic 1: Language
I myself am very guilty of inappropriate language on Fanpop. I have said some things where if I think twice was not a good idea. I understand that some people say things out of habit and can do it without...

or: "Basic information about removing your account"

Special thanks to link, our fanpop guinea pig. (or should I say lab rat?)

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...

Please don't hate me. I know I shouldn't be wasting an article space writing this. I mean many people rated tp1992's article low, but I wanted to take out my fustrations somewhere.
I just noticed today that in one of my favourite spots I am no longer number 1. I wouldn't be so bothered if it weren't for this:

OK guys! Today we'll talk about ratings! Many of us contribute things to Fanpop and it's great!!! Because we are working on it! We are looking for images, videos, links to help other people! But it happens a lot that some people rate it low!!! You know it sucks when you've being searching for something, contributing it and HERE YOU ARE - you see one star rating for all you did!!! I don't understsand such people. If you don't like the content DON'T rate it at all!!!! Or at least leave comments!!! Here's the example I uploaded images on spot A. I did a great job looking for them! After I was waiting so they could upload on Fanpop. And in an hour I see one star rating which means garbage!!! It is so insulting! I'm sure you guys had the same situaions. We can do nothing about it. But people, APPRECIATE other Fanpoppers. Don't visit the spots you hate, don't hurt people you hate, DON'T RATE LOW! Please, Fanpop is one and there are a lot of us so let's live in peace:)

Some of you may not no this but if you have a mac you can only upload five images at one time onto fanpop.

Most of you probably don't care because you have a PC or don't upload images that much.

It didn't really get on my nerves before, but now I want to upload Heroes screencaps to the Heroes spot which I have a die-hard medal in and I know PC users can upload much more than five images at a time; especially if they have a die hard medal in the spot they want to upload in.

I know you can open loads of tabs but then again it is more work and annoying.

It's unfair on people who like to contribute anyway, so I hope there is some change in the image uploader for mac users.

P.S. If you joke and say I should have a PC or whatever, then very funny but no.

I feel like it is time that I tell you how much you all mean to me and how Fanpop has changed my life. About a year ago I became a stay-at-home mom. Which was really a blessing, however a huge stressor in my life was the fact that I had essentially no adult interaction during the day and no way of really feeling validated. I found Fanpop one day while browsing for Office episodes online. I saw the picks and it looked so fun, that I just had to join! Since then I have spent hours everyday on Fanpop. It is my outlet for all the stresses of being a young mother who is nearly solely responsible...

Now that more clubs have the ability to create official icon & banner picks, I thought my link on the subject could use a little revision.

Why does it matter, you ask? 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...

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.

4. Which section is your favorite?

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

5. Are you ''known'' for anything on Fanpop?

I used to be known for my obsession with Bellatrix not just on the HP spot but in Random and other places. On the Winx...

Question 7..Where can I find the FAQs?
Question 7..Where can I find the FAQs?
Basically this will be a collection of all the picks asking "HOW DO I- insert basic function here ?" (usually with the options IDK and PLZ tell me in commentz) and my short answer to these inquiries. Now that we have the new answers feature they are usually posted as an answer request but still repeated endlessly.
I usually report these kind of picks/answers and they get deleted as they are effectively spam. The drawback is: all information users leave in the comments is lost.

link seems to only be used by a limited number of fans and though I use it frequently I hate how all information is...

Breasts are pornographic and should only be shown on porn sites.

Girls must be careful when looking in the mirror, the sight of their own breasts could easily aruse them which in most cases leads to a heavy masturbatory response.

Knowing this we are sincerely happy that the danger that was the breasts spot has been deleted shortly after its creation.
Our thanks go to the brave fans who have reported that inspired-by-the-devil-spot and were not stopped by the fact that no pornograhpic material was allowed over there. They were not fooled by the image of it being a nice place devoted to a pretty...

Yes, yes it is.
Yes, yes it is.
As some of you may know, I often suffer from grammar-induced rage blackouts. These can be triggered by anything from a misplaced apostrophe to the incorrect usage of "your" and "you're". So, I decided to do something about it.. mostly because I'm afraid the next dangling modifier I come across might send me spiraling into a violent rampage the likes of which have never been seen.

I understand that a lot of Fanpoppers are not native English speakers, and thus might not have as good a hold on our sometimes ridiculously complicated grammatical rules. Obviously, I can't fault them for their mistakes....

You all have probably gone to a fellow fanpopper's profile and wondered how they made it look to good. Some of us have no idea how to do it. I myself had to asked my amazing girlfriend (link) how she created hers. So, we came up with a great idea to write a how-to article. :D

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!)

So that was how I discovered Fanpop-not to dramatic or interesting, but i found my rabbit hole.

Whats yours?

The concept of the prop is wonderful. Fanpop is a user based site and users should have the ability to reward others for their hard work. I also agree with the idea behind Prop Day. It should serve as a reminder to all users to give that reward. However, the prop system has become flawed. Very flawed. I happened upon a user profile and saw several props. I looked to see when the user started Fanpopping and saw that it had only been two months. Wow! This person must have added tons of content. So I looked at the activity. No links had been added, no videos, no images (mind you, the profile had...

50% of fanpoppers that took my pick 'Do you like the black background of fanpops homepage?' picked no.

I'm one of the fanpoppers that picked yes and i'll explain why.

The old background was okay, but its main colors were blue and green; two colors that don't go together. But the black background doesn't have any colors that do not match.

The black background is easier on the eye, more stylish and makes you feel more relaxed. The old background seems more tacky.

I'm sure that homepage will change back to its old blue and green theme as fanpoppers think the black background is 'against the spirit...

This article describes two different kinds of feedback to the Fanpop staff that are often confused for one another, and was last edited on 28 October 2008.

Feedback on the web site
Like any commercial software enterprise, web sites provide a product to their customers. In Fanpop's case, the product is a great site for joining together with other fans of topics that interest you in order to share quality content and make friends. But as with any product, feedback is very important to both maintain and improve the product. But feedback for maintaining the site is fundamentally different than feedback...

This part of my user's guide covers the reporting mechanism and how to use it to maintain good content on the site. It was last updated on 25 December 2009.

As you continue to use Fanpop, you will come across content that is not what it should be in some way. Since Fanpop is largely only as good as the content it contains, it is important to address these issues for the good of the site and the Fanpop community.

Now, most of the content that "is not what it should be" is likely just content that you don't like, and such content should be rated appropriately (see the link). But, rarely, there...

Okay this soapbox sadly, is going to point fingers so people can learn from this. I don't like having to point fingers but it seems no one gets the message across if it isn't done.

What is bulk posting? It's when you post multiple things all at the same time. So when you do that the keywords you give are going to be the same for every single thing you post.

Why do people bulk post? Well the excuse used can be "I want to share great content with others" but really it turns more into a quantity over quality.

Why is this harming keywords? When people bulk post they only put a general amount of keywords...
