click "edit profile" and there is a link at the bottom to delete your account.

click "new users sign up", at the top of the signup page there is a banner for band profiles.

how do i put a picture on my profile?
click the "edit pictures" link

how do i put a picture background on my profile?
see question below. there will be additional help on the same pages.

how do i make my profile look cool?
click 'edit profile' and you can insert any html or css text into your profile!

how come some of my comments got deleted?
all comments over 30 days old are deleted!

can i change my username?
no, if you want a different username then you have to delete your account and remake it under a new name.

my profile looks weird, something is in the wrong place.
this is because you're not using tables properly. most likely due to some stupid quiz results you put in there. I suggest taking out all the quiz results from your profile and starting over.

how do i put more pictures on my profile?
premium members can put up to 100 pictures on their profile

how do i put CSS into my journal?
goto your journal and click "edit journal name / description" and then simply put the code in there.

my comments and ratings box disappeared, how do i fix it?
this is because you're trying to use style sheets in your profile but you didn't use a closing style tag properly. If you don't know what I'm talking about, I suggest you just go to edit your profile and either delete everything in your profile or delete everything related to the profile style.

how come people can't rate me?
you have to turn on your ratings in order for peple to rate you. you can enable your ratings on the "edit profile" page.

how do i stop people from rating me?
turn off your ratings in the "edit profile" page. if you turn on your ratings again in the future, you will continue where you left off.

people rate me and my rating doesn't change.
your profile rating is an average of all of your ratings. if you are rated by a few hundred or a few thousand people, your rating is obviously not going to change everytime somebody rates you since it is an average.

what are rating points?
everytime somebody rates you, your rating points go up. for instance, if somebody rates you a "10", you get 10 more rating points. while the "ratings" are an average of all your ratings, the ratings points always increase everytime somebody rates you. you can also view a list of the people with the highest ratings points. people with the highest rating points are the most popular and were usually on the top 10 lists the longest.

how do i see what people rated me?
only premium members can see what people rated them

how does the top rated lists work?
you need over 300 rating points to get onto the top rated lists. the top rated lists show the people with the highest average ratings. the top 10 lists are updated every 3 minutes, which is why sometimes it might seem slightly out of order.

how come I lost ratings / rating points?
when someone is deleted, ratings they gave out are cancelled. so if someone rated you and then they got deleted, you will lose the rating you got from them.

someone is stealing my/someone else's pictures. please delete them.
in order to get rid of a fake, you have to "salute", by taking a picture of yourself holding a piece of paper saying " @ vampirefreaks.com" simply post your salute in your profile, and then leave a comment in the admin inbox. If they are impersonating someone such as a celeb or actor, then provide proof such as a web page. Fake accounts are deleted.

i think this person has multiple accounts!
if you believe this to be true then report it in the admin inbox. This includes "HTML Test Pages", you have the VF Layour Generator and a "Preview" option for that. You will be deleted if you have multiple accounts!

this user has nazi stuff on their profile!
Racist / sexist / prejudiced / or any nazi / kkk imagery or references are not allowed and you will be deleted if caught with it. Report it to the admin inbox

help, somebody is being mean to me, they hurt my feelings.
stop whining you pussy. you can easily block people from commenting on your profile or emailing you. you simply click the "block this user" button on their profile. but if someone is an obvious asshole to multiple people, we will delete them, but if you keep bothering us with your personal drama we will delete you. Report assholes to the admin inbox.

how do i take people off my friends or favorites or shit list?
click on "edit lists"

how do i block somebody from commenting on my profile?
click on the "block user" button on their profile

how do i unblock somebody?
click on "edit lists"

how do i see whose shitlist I am on?
you can't, biatch!

so-and-so "hacked into my account", and they are messing around with it!
the vampirefreaks site is very secure. it is nearly impossible for someone to hack into your account. however, when you login to the site, you stay logged in until you log out. so, if you login to the site and then somebody else uses that computer afterwards, they will be logged in as you. so it's your own fault, you dumbass! next time hit "logout" when you're done using the site.

how do i delete comments from my profile?
click on edit comments

this user has nude pictures on their profile!
nudity (nipples/genitals) is not allowed, this includes piercing shots of explict areas. Please report it to the admin inbox. Underwear is not considered pornography.

hey! i've been rated a 1 for no reason! this user must be a downrater!
stop your bitching. Just because you were rated a 1 does not make people a downrater. And people do not have to leave comments when they rate you either. However if you have a strong belief they are a downrater then leave a comment in the admin inbox. Downraters are deleted.

i was having a rough time with this person, and now all his/her friends are attacking me!
this is not allowed. if you have personal drama with someone then settle it yourselves by either blocking, ignoring or settling it out.

can i be an administrator?
the answer is no.

please help me, i don't understand how to use this site!
the admins/mods are quite busy with more important matters, ask a friend or another user for help using the site. There are several areas you can visit for help such as the messageboard or the chatroom.

why is this site so slow?
when the site is running slow, it usually means that it is being worked on. Sorry for the inconvenience.

omgz! WTF, u g0T2 h37P me OoT h3r3!
please when you ask for help then you should write it so we can understand it. Also provide appropiate usernames and proof/where to look so we can solve the problem asap.

remember last week you dealt with this user? well he's back again.. just to let you know!
complaints sent in are answered by different moderators and administrators. Always provide the appropiate proof/history required to solve a problem instead of expecting the same person to deal with it.

why not force people to leave comments whenever they rate you? it will stop downrating!
