Frequently Asked Questions

Why can't I view the marketplace?

The DoA Marketplace is reserved for members in good standing who are active participants in the community. These requirements are in place to make buying and selling safer.

After you have been a member for 60 days and have made 40 posts, you can fill out the application form to apply for Marketplace access. If you have any questions about this, please ask the moderators.

How do I add an image to a post?

Den of Angels does not host images, so you are not able to upload an image with your post. You will need to post the images to an external account like Flickr, Photobucket or your own website.

Once you've uploaded your photos, copy the URL of your image. The URL should end in jpg, gif or png. Some sites, like Etsy and Facebook, may have image URLS that will not work on DoA.

In the editing box on DoA, click the image icon: Screen Shot 2015-10-15 at 8.08.12 AM.png

Paste in your image URL and click Insert.

Can I change my username or create another account?

Members are only allowed to have one account. There are no exceptions. Community safety is built heavily on reputation and member feedback, therefore users who share an account or create multiple accounts will be banned.

If more than one account accesses Den of Angels from your IP, we recommend that you post in the Ask the Moderators to let us know that you are separate people.

For the same reason, we do not allow name changes. We suggest that you choose a username that is not time or trend based. It might be embarrassing to you two years down the road to have "JustinBieber4ever" as your username.

Specifically, we do not allow name changes based on disliking or outgrowing your username, wanting a consistent username across multiple sites, or changing your name legally in real life. If you want people to call you something else, we recommend updating the user title under your avatar to your preferred name.
#3

What is the difference between off-topic dolls and banned dolls?

Off-topic dolls may not be bought or sold on DoA, but they may be discussed or pictured in context with other on-topic dolls.

Banned dolls may not be shown or mentioned on Den of Angels at all.

Why are my images broken?

If you've posted an image and it doesn't show up correctly, here are some things to check:

• Is the image available on your image host? Check to make sure that your image host is available and that they have not blocked or removed your image.

• Is the image's privacy setting set to public? Some image hosts (like Flickr) allow you to set images to be private. That means they won't show on DoA, even if you can see them when you log into your image hosting account.

• Does the URL end in jpg, gif or png? Only these file types are supported. You will need to link to the individual photo, not the page that it displays on your image host. Sites like Facebook or Etsy may have image links that end in a number – these will not work on DoA.

• Is your image file larger than 2mb? Den of Angels can only display images that are 2mb or smaller. If your image is too big, you will need to resize it in your image editing software.

• Is your bbcode correct? Click the small wrench icon at the top right of the editing box: Screen Shot 2015-10-15 at 8.29.22 AM.png

This will show the code for your post. You image code should be one URL wrapped in a beginning and ending IMG tag:
Code:
[IMG]http://imaghost.com/YourImage.jpg[/IMG]
• Are you trying to link an image from Facebook? Images from Facebook often do not work. You will need to find a different image host.

How do bannings and suspensions work? (Marketplace and site bans)

What's the difference between a ban and a suspension?
A suspension lasts for a set term, with a maximum of six months.
A ban lasts indefinitely and is usually permanent.

Den of Angels bans and suspensions

Members may receive a ban or suspension for:
  • flaming or flamebaiting
  • harassing members via conversations
  • marketplace dishonesty
  • repeatedly breaking the rules
  • posting blatantly inappropriate content
  • sharing an account or creating multiple accounts
Den of Angels may ban members do not follow our recast policy.

If you are suspended or banned, you may send an appeal to denofangels@gmail.com.

If you are caught sneaking back onto the forum, your new account will be banned also.

We do not list who has been banned or for what reasons. In cases of dishonesty, we recommend checking Problem Transactions and keeping up-to-date with warnings of known scammers.

Marketplace bans and suspensions
Members may receive a marketplace ban or suspension for:
  • problematic Marketplace transactions
  • breaking Marketplace rules
  • buying or selling outside the Marketplace

For problematic Marketplace transactions, a Marketplace ban may be lifted after all outstanding transactions are resolved. However, in most cases, the ban will be permanent. In very serious cases, a Marketplace ban will turn into a site-wide ban.

What happens if I receive a Marketplace ban or suspension?
When you receive a Marketplace ban or suspension, the shopping areas of the Marketplace will be invisible to you. Your sales and WTB threads are removed; your in-progress splits or group orders may stay, at the mods’ discretion.

A Marketplace ban or suspension means that you may not:
  • buy or sell items anywhere on Den of Angels
  • commission another member or accept commissions
  • share or create an account to get around the ban/suspension

If you receive a Marketplace ban or suspension, it’s OK to:
  • participate anywhere on the forum except the Marketplace
  • leave feedback for previous transactions
  • complete and resolve any current transactions
  • ask a moderator to send info from your split or group order thread

Once the time is up, post in Ask the Moderators to have your suspension lifted.

Why do I get the message 'Please enter a value using 100 characters or fewer'?

The title for your thread has a limit of 100 characters. Depending on the type of item, the title could be automatically generated from the price, company name, item name, size and gender fields. Keep these answers short when you fill out the form – you can always edit your post afterwards to add more detail.

What is two-step verification?

Go to User Personal Details in your user menu, which is the menu you see when you hover over your username at the top right of the site. Two-step Verification is an option under Settings in the lefthand menu.

As it says:
Two-step verification increases the security of your account by requiring you to provide an additional code to complete the login process. If your password is ever compromised, this verification will help prevent unauthorized access to your account.

Here's some general information about two-factor authentication (2FA).

If you usually access DoA from a private computer or your own mobile device, this is a good way to make your account more secure. Someone who logs in from a different computer/device will be prompted for a code, even if they know your password. You can set it so that a computer/device is trusted for 30 days, at which point you will need to generate a new code.

This is not a good choice if you use a shared or public computer to access DoA.

If you'd like to enable two-step verification, you can have the code sent to your phone if you install an app such as Authy or Google Authenticator. This is the more secure option, but if you prefer, you can have the code sent to your registered email address – check your spam folder if you don't see it. You will have 15 minutes to enter the code on DoA.

What to do if you need to access your account from an untrusted computer/device
When you verify your account you will get a list of backup codes. At some point, you may need to access your DoA account from an untrusted device that you don't want to verify. You can use a backup code to access DoA. You may want to write the codes on paper and put them somewhere safe. Each code can only be used once.

If you cannot access your DoA account for any reason, email us at denofangels@gmail.com.
