Hi and welcome to Bearville Insider. I am AJCool and it is a pleasure welcoming you to the boards. I hope you make new friends and enjoy it here at the forums!

Bearville Insider is a perfect place to look for cool new information on Buildabearville, a guide to uploading photos, how to makes poles, and even how to create one of the best signatures. I hope you have loads of fun by helping others and making yourself comfortable here!

Some good places to start out with are The Forum Rules and the Yikes! I Need Help Sections. Your safety is of the utmost concern for the Bearville Insider Staff so they highly encourage all members to take a look at The Forum Rules so that way we can have fun and be safe at the same time. Some quick things to be aware of:

  1. VM stands for Visitor Messages and is a privilege that allows you to speak with other members. However, they are strict rules regarding the Visitor Messages and I advise you check them out at The Form Rules Section. Please be age appropriate when talking to other members.
  2. You are a Knut when you have not reached 10 posts. Once you have reach 10 posts you will automatically be positioned as a Polar Bear.
  3. Also you do not have the option of writing in either red or blue ink because those are reserved for the Administrators and Moderators.
  4. Do not give out any personal information at any circumstances. Your personal life and private information should be kept a secret. Your name, age, school, address, phone number, e-mail address, and other private information that can be violated should be kept to yourself and given to no one on this forum
  5. Respect all ages. You have to understand that on this site you have kids younger and older then you therefore you must be appropriate of what you say and do on this forum.
  6. Check out the FAQ for unanswered questions.
  7. Reputation Points are determined from how well you give an answer to a member. They are also the green boxes that appear under the number of posts you have. You can see your recent Reputation Points by click “User CP” at the top and scrolling down that page. You can add to someone else’s Reputation by click the heart with the plus sign. However, if you think someone was breaking the rules and being inappropriate you can click the circle with the exclamation point.
  8. You can add an Avatar, Signature, and Profile Picture by going to “User CP.” Remember to save the file as a JPG, PNG, or GIF. PNG for clear pictures and GIF for animated pictures. You can also upload your Avatar, Signature, or Profile Picture at any reliable Photoshop such as Photobucket, Blingee, TinyPic, or ImageShack.

Bearville Insider members always are asking question and we have wonderful friend who love to give them an answer so check out the Yikes! I Need Help Section. You are given an answer for both Bearville Insider and Build-a-Bearville related questions which should be asked in the correct section according to the subsections called BI-Related Issues and BABV-Related Issues. We also have a subsection labeled Guides and How To’s which is where many members have uploaded guides to help you understand something better like for example the guides on how to make a picture for your avatar. Do not hesitate in asking because we certainly would like to give you a helping paw. Hopefully after you have your questions answered you are satisfied with the information the members were so kind to provide.

Sometimes the Bearville Insider Members just don’t know how to answer specific questions and that is why we have our fellow CybearGuides. They are very helpful with their answers and appreciative of the questions you ask. If you want an elaborated answer then they are the ones to go to. The Cyberguides Section a great addition and a thanks to all the Cybearguides who were so nice to take their time to help us out on the forums.
