HELP Page

AccurateShooter.com Help PageWelcome to AccurateShooter.com. We hope you enjoy the site and use it as your first resource for precision shooting and reloading information. If you have questions about our articles or our Shooters’ FORUM, email Mailbox@6mmBR.com. We’re sorry but we do not provide gunsmithing advice or personalized load data.

ARTICLES INDEX
We have a handy INDEX of all the feature articles on the site, complete with short descriptions, and thumbnail photos that appear when you browse. You can sort the index by article category, publication date, or keyword(s).

HOW TO FIND ARTICLES
The entire AccurateShooter.com website is indexed by a very powerful and fast search engine. Just use the “SEARCH” box at the top right corner of every page to find relevant posts and related articles. Type in your Keyword and you will find a wealth of information! To browse our entire archive of articles, or to find articles by subject category, visit our ARTICLES Index Page. You will find a convenient pull-down menu to find categories (Such as Ballistics, Gunsmithing, etc.), or you can search by keyword.

HOW TO USE THE MESSAGE BOARDS
We have a very active Shooters’ FORUM with over 12,000 registered members. There you’ll find a weath of information, plus great deals on items for sale in our Forum Classifieds. Registered Forum Members can list their items for sale at no charge.

To visit our Shooter’s FORUM, go to: www.AccurateShooter.com/forum. Guests are welcome to browse the boards. In order to post, you’ll need to register. This is very easy to do, and we won’t sell your name or email address to anybody. This just allows you to have a regular identity on the site. Also, this allows other board users to send you private messages (and email) if you enable those options.

ABOUT EMAIL & PRIVACY
Once you’ve registered, you will have a User Profile. Click the “Control Panel” link in the upper right to change your profile any time. If you want to prevent other members from sending you email, click “Change Email” (when you are in the Control Panel). That launches a new window where you can select “Private” in the checkbox next to your email address. Read Privacy Policy.

HOW to POST PICTURES
You can post pictures on the message boards in two ways. First, you can upload a file from your hard-drive to a picture hosting site. We recommend ImageShack.us or TinyPic.com. These services are fast and FREE. You do not have to set up an account. Once you’ve uploaded the image file, then copy the hosted image address, which begins with [IMG] and ends with [/IMG], and paste into your message.

Alternatively, when you are in the Forum screen for writing a reply, click on the link that says “More Options”. Click this to see the option for attaching images from your hard drive. These images will be displayed as 180×180 thumbnails. Please keep your photos under 150kb in file size.

ABOUT PICTURE SIZES
Keep your posted images to 600 pixels wide at the most. This makes it easier for others to read the boards. Really big pictures do funny things to the margins. Here is a picture 600 pixels wide. It’s plenty big. If you need to resize your photos, FREE Windows software called “Irfanview” can crop and re-size images. GET Irfanview here: Download Sites.
