    This was created by HCRU members for new HCRU members.

    1. Q. Why are my posts not appearing?
    A. If you are a new member your post will not appear right away. First, your posts will have to be approved by a moderator. Within several days your posts will appear. From then on you will be able to post freely.

    2. Q. My crabs have molted several times. Why does it says I've never molted under my username? How can I change that?
    A. The phrase under your username does not have to do with how many crabs of yours have molted. It has to do with the number of posts you have and is not changeable. It's a fun way to track the number of posts you and others have.Here is the chart.

    1 Hi, I'm New Here! 0
    2 "Never Molted" 30
    3 (Micro Crab) 60
    4 "Preparing For First Molt" 120
    5 "First Molt In Progress" 150
    6 "First Molt, A Success" 200
    7 (Small Crab) 250
    8 "Preparing For Second Molt" 350
    9 "Second Molt In Progress" 450
    10 "Second Molt, A Success" 500
    11 (Medium Crab) 600
    12 "Preparing For Third Molt" 750
    13 "Third Molt In Progress" 850
    14 "Third Molt, A Success" 900
    15 (Large Crab) 1000
    16 "Preparing For Fourth Molt" 1250

    A. When you are posting a thread type the caption you would like to go along with your picture. Then, go to the bottom of the page. Click the button "Manage attachments". Then a window will pop up. Click browse and choose the picture you want. The picture will show up at the bottom of your post and people will be able to enlarge it. If you would like to make your picture VERY large then you have to get a photobucket account then copy the IMG code and copy and paste it into the little icon above the post with a picture of a mountain.

    If only I had seen this earlier. I tried reposting like 10 times in the welcome rock and thought my computer was just glitching. :p I am so sorry! Is there a way I can go through and delete my own posts?
