Smile User's Guide to Otaku Social Network

Hello Everyone,

I've decided to create a user's guide to explain the many functions on Otaku Social Network. This is a basic user's manual which should explain many of the questions you might have about what features are available on this site and directions on how to use those features. Many of the directions you can probably figure out by trial and error, or if you have previous experience with social networks. However, I decided to create this manual for those of you that are less experienced. There are some functions that are different from other sites, so even the experienced may find this useful. Hope this helps.

This section allows you to upload photos, create photo albums, view your photos, set a photo as your profile picture, add it to the Cosrate voting, remove a photo and also enter a caption. All photos must be in either GIF or JPEG format and must be 3000KB or less.

STEP-BY-STEP DIRECTIONS: To upload a photo, click the "Browse" button and select the photo you wish to upload. You can add a caption and a description to that photo, if you wish. Check the "Make this photo my main photo" box if you want it to be your profile picture. If you want the picture to be added to the Cosrate section (Cosplay pictures only please), check the "Add this photo to voting" box. You can add the photo to one of your photo albums by selecting the name of the photo album you previously created (you can also add a photo to an album at a later date). Click "Upload".

STEP-BY-STEP DIRECTIONS: To create a photo album, click "Add Album" under the PHOTO ALBUM section, select the users who can view the album (from 1 degree of separation friends up to everyone), select active and enter the title of the album.

STEP-BY-STEP DIRECTIONS: To select a main picture for an album, select "manage photos" and click "set as main" under the photo you wish to be the album's main picture. Click "Back" when satisfied.


In an effort to give you a little privacy when it comes to your photos, we have implemented an album system. If you don’t care and want everyone to be able to view ALL your photos, you don’t need to create albums (loose pictures will be seen by other users).


If you create an album, ONLY PICTURES PLACED IN ALBUMS CAN BE SEEN BY OTHERS (loose pictures cannot be viewed by other users). Public albums can be viewed by all. Other albums can be viewed depending on who you allow to see it. If you only create a private album, then every picture you have uploaded will be hidden from other users. If you wish some pictures to be viewable by other users and some hidden from other users, then you must create a public album as well as a private album and add the pictures in the appropriate album.

STEP-BY-STEP DIRECTIONS: To create a private album. Create an album as per directions above. Select "Private" in the "audience" field, check the "active" box", enter an album title and personal note if you wish, then click "Update".



My Network:
This section shows your various degrees of separation. 1st degree are your direct friends that have added you (or you have added as friends). 2nd degree is someone that is a friend of one of your added friends. 3rd degree is a friend of a friend of one of your added friends etc...

STEP-BY-STEP DIRECTIONS: You can view your various degrees of separation, by clicking the degree you wish to see, at the bottom of the screen. Click the user's name to view their profile. Depending on how many friends you have, you may have multiple pages in each category. The pages are listed below the pics of your friends and above the degrees of separation. On the right of the screen, in the "Brief" box, you can view how many users are in each degree of separation and can go to that page by clicking on the number.



My Ignores:
Contains a list of all users that you have chosen to ignore. After adding a member to your ignore list, you will no longer receive emails or any other types of contact from that member.

STEP-BY-STEP DIRECTIONS: You can unignore an ignored user by clicking on their profile and clicking "unignore <user's name>" on the right of the screen.



My Invitations:
Invite your friends to join Otaku Social Network. You can do this in multiple ways.

STEP-BY-STEP DIRECTIONS: Enter your friends’ email addresses in the boxes under the "Invite New Friends" section header and hit the "send" button to send the standard invitation message, or you can personalize the subject and message, then click "send".

STEP-BY-STEP DIRECTIONS: Another (and easier) way to invite your friends is to import your contacts from your email account. Under the "Import Contacts" section header, enter your email address and email password (NOT your Otaku Social Network password), select the type of email account you have (hotmail, gmail, AOL etc...), then click "Import". All the contacts you have listed in your email address book will now be listed. Simply check the box next to the people you want to invite, and either personalize the subject and message you want to send them, or just send the standard invitation message by clicking the "Send" button.

STEP-BY-STEP DIRECTIONS: If you have a .CSV file, you can also upload that file by simply clicking the browse button, selecting the file, and clicking "Upload", then follow the instructions listed above.



My Points:
The "My Points" section rewards you for your various activities on Otaku Social Network. For example, creating a forum post, uploading photos, creating a blog, a successful invite etc... (for a full list of activity rewards and their point value, view your "My Points" page, numbers in blue are what activities you have completed, activities in red deduct points). Your points accumulate, which you will be able to use in the future for various pay features (featured blogs, events, clubs, classified ads etc...) on Otaku Social Network. You can also send points to your friends.

STEP-BY-STEP DIRECTIONS: In the "Send Points" box located on the right of the screen (in the "My Points" page) select which friend you wish to send points to, how many points you wish to send, and click "next", that's it.

Your total points and top point leaders are also listed on the right side. WE WILL BE GIVING AWAY FREE PRIZES (DVD’s, BOX SETS, WALL SCROLLS, FIGURES, etc...) to the TOP POINT LEADERS in the near future (so check back often for details on what prizes, and when the contests will start). We WILL be checking the winners to make sure there isn’t any funny business going on (points acquired by multiple blog posts, event listings, classified ads, etc...that don’t make any sense, or are clearly posted to increase your points will be nullified and deleted). Judges’ decisions are final. Any point leaders that are in clear violation of the contest, will be disqualified and the other users will move up in rank accordingly (admin and paid employees are not eligible to qualify) . We want to keep things fair. Points already accumulated count. So start posting, uploading, inviting friends and having fun.
