Jefe's Guide to the Minecraft Forums and FAQ
A Series of Video and Text Tutorials to Help You on the Minecraft Forums
Table Of Contents
After spending a lot of time answering the same questions over and over again I thought I'd take some time to put together a comprehensive tutorial on various features and functions the Minecraft Forums (and IPB in general) offer. I have tried to cover as much information as possible, but there will always be things that I miss, things that I am wrong about or things that I haven't made clear enough. Please don't hesitate to post here with ideas on content to add, constructive criticism, corrections to content or to even ask questions.
Each section has two sets of tutorials: a video tutorial and a text/image based tutorial. Both contain the same material, I just wanted to cover all the bases as some people prefer one over the other.
