You can also lock a conversation so that no one else can post in it. You may want to do this if you are sending a message to multiple people, but don't want to start a big group conversation. For example, you might contact members of a group order for their addresses, but you want each person to respond to you privately.
One notable difference is that the conversation search box only allows you to search for usernames, not keywords.
This means that no one can respond to your conversation.
A case when you might use this is if you are organizing a group order and want to let everyone know their items have arrived. You will want each person to contact you individually with their address, rather than start a group conversation where everyone can see each other's information.
You cannot lock a conversation after it has been started.
We do have profanity filters in place, but they are fairly limited and mostly limited to racial slurs and the strongest of the 4-letter words. Though we do not block many words, we ask that members use maturity and taste in their use of profanity.
We do not allow highly sexualized images or excessive gore. Certain sensitive topics (i.e. rape, incest, pedophilia, torture) are not allowed in images or textual content, including comments made to the original post. Please keep dark backstories vague.
There is no concrete list of things that are allowed or disallowed; please use your common sense. If you feel that something you're considering posting may be a bit too much, feel free to post in the Ask the Moderators subforum to get approval. Offensive or inappropriate posts/threads that are reported by other members may be removed; any post/thread may be removed by a moderator at any time, for any reason, at their discretion.
You will have three options to save your conversations:
• Text: This is a plain text file you can open in Notepad or Textedit.
• HTML: This lets you view your messages in a web browser.
• XML: This lets you view your messages in database software such as Excel.
To choose specific conversations to export, tick the box beside them and choose Export from the dropdown menu:
To export a single conversation, go to the conversation and choose your preferred format from the Export Conversation area at the bottom of the sidebar:
However, you can always see the last time a participant has looked at a conversation by looking at the Conversation Participants sidebar block.
Doll profiles are also searchable by company, sculpt, skintone and other specific criteria. If you are looking for images of a specific kind of doll, doll profiles are a good place to start.
Fill out the form, making sure to fill out the fields marked Required.
It's ok to skip non-required fields. Unanswered fields will not appear on the final doll profile.
The Information, Styling and Character sections have specific questions as well as an editor box where you can provide other details. Feel free to be creative!
The Images section is for externally hosted images of your doll. You can add them the same way you add images in posts. These can be more photos of your doll, or group shots, concept art, etc. All images must belong to you.
The final step is to upload one photo of your doll. This must be a photo of your own doll, not a drawing or company photo. You can upload a photo from your computer or phone.
When you're done, click Create Doll Profile.
This will create a private draft that only you can see. To view your drafts, click the sidebar menu link for Your Doll Profiles & Drafts. (On mobile, this link is under Doll Profiles in the site menu.)
When you want to make the doll profile public, untick the Save as Draft box and click the Create Doll Profile button.
When you want to make the doll profile public, edit the profile, then select "Publish" from the Status dropdown at the top of the page.
