Hello Arthur fans! Welcome to Elwood City Central forum! This forum was creating as a means for fans to communicate about the Arthur franchise. We hope everyone enjoys it here.

I am Muppetfan, the forum creator and administrator. If you have any questions or problems, feel free to contact me and I will take care of them as soon as possible.

I want to go over some of the features of this forum so all of our users are aware of them. The main forum consists of four subsections, "Elwood City Central," featuring news and feedback about this site, "Arthur," with discussions about the hit TV series, "Other Productions," featuring specials, spinoffs, and more, and "Fandom and More," featuring discussions about Arthur sites, fandom, games, and other non-Arthur topics.

On this forum, you can also send private messages, which you can respond to and initiate through the "My Messages" button on the forum toolbar. We also have a calendar, search, and much, much more.

The key words for behavior on this forum is "COMMON SENSE." Don't do anything that it isn't common sense to do. No rude comments, bad language, spam, etc. I also want to note that this is a forum that may attract all ages. Therefore please refrain from using any swearing or inappropriate language, as we never know who will be looking at this forum.

I have a dumb question but can you see how you earn these badge thingies? Most of the ones I have seem obvious, but some of them I would like to actually know how I got them

I'm sorry, it's that OCD Collect Everything Gamer in me :P

That is actually a really good question. I see what you mean, I can only see them as an admin, yet not a user. I'll have to see if I can figure that out.

Also on the subject of badges, I may be doing some customization and such over the coming days with them, such as adding some new ones that have some Arthur related names.

Another question, can you increase the size limit for avatars?

Maybe...I'll check that out for ya.

Sweet!

I really am blind as a bat and teeny tiny images with lots of detail tend to cause me eyestrain >_<

Glad I could help you to conquer your eyestrain, then... :P

Since I've run forums before in the past, those "badge thingies" aren't badge thingies...

Most forums like these have these stars, or other little icons, that coincide with your posting status. Like for example, 1 star for new members, 2 stars for say 50 posts, 3 stars for 100 posts, 4 stars for 1,000 posts, 5 stars for 2,000 posts... and of course, forum staff members have different stars, like admins have 5 red stars, assistant admins or global mods have 5 green stars, regular mods have like 5 blue stars, etc.

Er...no, my friend :P

Go to profile, then look on the side bar and you'll see a link that says "Badges"

They are like the trophy points at MC

Right, exactly. We're not speaking of stars, but instead badges. As said, basically MC trophy points of sort.

Hello, everybody! I'm Crossover Dreamer. I discovered Elwood City Central browsing fanpop. I'm so glad there's an Arthur forum that I feel safe looking at. I plan to reply to a lot of posts and to start several topics myself. Hopefully more people will join.

Where is a good place to get avatars? Arthur Wiki?
