Sos, check this out for now: http://www.glowsticking.com/articles-and-t.../tutorials.html

 

We have a glossary or at the very least a move list, I'll try to find it. Click the category links for some basic move explanations/tutorials and I'll find that glossary if we still have it.

THIS MIGHT BE A STUPID QUESTION BUT HOW DO I UPLOAD VIDEOS?

There's always the option of using youtube and then using the embed video button when you post a thread (which is the little white button with the play symbol on it...you just post the direct link to the video in between the two video things it'll paste into your thread).

 

You can also upload one to our downloads center, but you might have to have more posts on the forum than you do now. To do that you need to have a video with a title screen, credits, and a gsc watermark on it. Once you have a video like that you can go to the downloads section and hit "add file" and insert all the video info into the fields. Once finished, hit submit, and wait for a gsc staff member to approve it.

 

Hope that helps :)

Stupid question number 2. How on earth do i quote somebody?? Help?

 

Easy, Simply navigate to the post you wish to quote, then you will see a small white/blue "reply" button at the bottom right of the post. Click that button, and it will take you to a reply window where the post has already been put into your new reply with the correct tags already on it.

 

:D Hope that answers your question.

With all due respect, we can also read your posts just fine if you don't use caps lock. As for your question about the uploading of videos, I suggest that you look through this thread, specifically at the 10th post, since that tells you everything you need to know.

Cheers

To add to Tico's response, the answer to your second question is to check the regional section of the forum. It's got a Colorado section within the Western USA section. Here's a link to it: GSC Colorado Forum

If you haven't read up on it, check this section that tells about the subscriptions and their descriptions. It's all down to you to decide if it's worth it. When you subscribe you're basically making a donation to help pay the costs of running the site. If helping keep gsc running and getting a few forum benefits is worth it to you then go for it.

You should come join us in the chat sometime, http://tinychat.com/glowsticking, there's generally several people in there depending on the time of day and you can do webcam broadcasts in it, so we practice and teach each other moves and stuff. Also be sure to hit up meetups if you can, that's a good chunk of what GSC is; the website itself is in a sense only the tip of the iceberg. If you stick around long enough (pun intended? :D) GSC becomes like a big extended family in a way.
