  1. The Starcraft 2 Editor Forum

    • Do not PM Moderators with Starcraft II Editor questions.

  2. Creating New Threads

    • NO FLOODING, at any time.
    • Please be very specific in your posts. Don't just write something like, "Plz Help" in your thread title, and don't type it in all caps. We want to know what your problem is. So tell us!
    • Also, if you need help creating a spell, don't just tell us the name of the spell you're trying to re-create (if you're trying to re-create a spell). Give a thorough description of what the spell will do.
    • Keep in mind that you may not be answered immediately. Be patient. If your thread is clean, reasonable, and easy to understand, it will be answered.
    • We here at TH.net are not a Starcraft II editing service. Do not expect for you to hand over your map to us and have it handed back magically complete. It won't happen. So don't try.
      There are cases where the problem can't be readily seen in the posts, in which case you will be asked to upload the map for someone to look at, but they will only be looking at that one problem.

      Here's a compilation of the currently most used thread titles:

      - Help
      - Help quick
      - Quick help
      - Quick question, help
      - Help me
      - Help me quick
      - Simple help
      - Simple help quick
      - Quick simple help
      - Problem
      - Trigger problem
      - Quick trigger
      - Fast trigger help
      - Really simple trigger, quick help
      - JASS problem
      - Quick JASS problem
      - Simple JASS quick
      - Quick problem JASS
      - My trigger doesn't work
      - My problem doesn't quick
      - Quick trigger shit
      - HELP! EXTREMELY URGENT!!!
      - What is this shit
      - What the fuck is up with this shit
      - What the fuck are you shitters waiting for to do my map this instant, fucking assholes


      Besides the simple fact that the forum's posting rules clearly state otherwise, what are you actually expecting when posting something like that?
      "Quick URGENT shit" doesn't explain anything.

      You're looking for help, right?
      Then describe the problem. In great detail. No one cares how cool you are insanely simple, yet deadly important that really quick, very easy problem is...
    • USE THE SEARCH FUNCTION. It's a wonderful tool. Some pointers about using search:

      1. The search does not combine words in the traditional sense of the word. It searches threads for multiple terms, but it does not look to see that the same post contains each of those terms. It does, however, support wildcards. What's a wildcard? Say you're searching for hero levels. Try entering this in the search box: "hero*". See the asterisk? (*) This tells it to search for all words that have the root of hero. So it will return posts with hero, heroes, and heros.
      2. A good option is to use the thread Titles Only option. That way, you can avoid posts where someone may have mentioned "heroes" and the thread has nothing to do with what you want.
      3. Search in the right section. Are you looking for a tutorial on how to do something? Search the Tutorials, Spells, and Trigger Code section, not the whole forum.
  3. Multiple Questions

    • Here's the deal. You may ask more than one question in a single thread. But DO NOT ADD MORE QUESTIONS LATER! I.E. no more "User's Question Thread". They are unwieldy and very hard to follow. Start a new thread when you have new questions.
    • DO NOT. POST. MULTIPLE THREADS. ASKING. THE. SAME. QUESTION. This will be heavily enforced. Most same-question threads will be deleted.

  4. Replying

    • Do not post spam. Do not flame. Do not post responses that are off-topic or have no relevance. This is very simple, guys. Just keep these threads clean and helpful. It's not difficult. SPAMMERS WILL HAVE ALL THEIR RECENT POSTS DELETED AS PUNISHMENT.
    • If 24 hours have passed, you were the last one to post, and your question has not been answered, you may bump your thread. But the 24 hour limit will be enforced, so be careful.
    • Write all of your posts in English. This is an English forum. If English is not your native language, tell us in the thread and do your best. We're pretty understanding here.
    • Take all the time you need to write your posts, forums are not the same as chat - for example instead of writing "gratz" or "ne1" you should use "congratulations" and "anyone" so that everybody can understand you easily. Also try to put periods and capital letters where they're supposed to be, this greatly increases readability. Acronyms are OK, but try to avoid leetspeak.
    • DO NOT HIJACK THREADS! If you have a question of your own to ask, post a new thread, don't try to take over someone else's thread.
    • Please do not revive old threads. If the thread to which you intend to reply is more than about a month old, don't reply to it. Just create a new one if you have a question about it.
    • The following is not a rule, but a word to the wise: When someone posts with a suggestion, don't post back and say that you'll try it and see if it works. If you do that, no one will respond and then you'll have to edit your post when you do try it, meaning that your post may not be seen. It would be better for you to try it first, then post success/failure.

  5. Unsupported Topics
    Easy. Don't post stuff that is unsupported. Don't know what's supported or not? Here's an easy reference table:

    UNSUPPORTED

    - Banlist
    - Maphacks
    - Name spoofers
    - No-CD cracks
    - Serial generator
    - Getting keys out of the game
    - Cracks or hacks for any other games or programs
    - Autorefreshers
    - Memory scanners
    - Map Deprotection

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

    SUPPORTED

    - Moonlite Map Studio
    - Andromeda
    - Sparsile
    - Milky Way Edit
    - Hamachi
    - Most Other Stuff (Still don't know? Ask first.)​

  6. Trigger Problems
    For GUI, use WC3 Tags. Don't know how? When you have a trigger, look at the Events icon in the trigger editor. See the name of the trigger right above it? Right-click. Select Copy As Text, then paste into your thread. Put the [NOPARSE]
    Trigger:
    • [/NOPARSE] tag at the beginning of the trigger, and put the [NOPARSE]
    [/NOPARSE] tag at the end. If you are posting in about Galaxy, there are similar tags for Galaxy. They work like this: [NOPARSE]
    JASS:
    [/NOPARSE].

  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    Lmao thats somethin right there.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    How far back were you looking at?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    But yes, that was me.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Do you think I am looking back in the forums for this stuff? LOL, no, I find these posts in the Members Online section or the stats - all these old posts I am bumping and moving around are what people are actually looking at on the website
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Interesting.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    hey Tom your Burrito news is going viral by TheHelper.net standards LOL
  • The Helper The Helper:
    looks like The Burrito has been shared to facebook lol I am getting the facebook bots in now
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am going to do one more News Forum like the Weird News but this one is Science News for all the cool science and technology articles in the Archive
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Hmm, do I need to start posting some of the Science and Technology news to this new section in the future?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Or do we need to move the news to their respective sections once the threads are old enough, read to be put into the News Archive?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The 2nd thing
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I have been moving stuff from the current Headline news like a year old and stuff over when I see it in the logs or members online but mostly I have been moving stuff from the Archives
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is possible to automate it so that instead of moving to Archive if it has the Science, technology or sci tech tag that it gets archived there instead. I am considering a new Weird News Tag
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Please do. I'll try to tag the news appropriately when I get the chance.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The new Discourse forum software we are moving to next does alot with the tags and also hashtags
  • The Helper The Helper:
    OK I found the source of your burrito post stuff it is from Reddit and possibly a facebook post too but definitely reddit
