How do I post a picture?

Click here to for a full and easy to follow description of host to post a picture

If you already have your picture hosted (on your own computer, on a service like ImageStation or MSN Communities, on webspace provided by your ISP, or otherwise), then simply include the url to your picture in image tags like this: [img]http://url_goes_here[/img]

If the picture you want to post is on your computer and not accessible via the internet, you first need to get your picture hosted. If you are not hugely computer savvy, a dedicated picture hosting service is likely your best bet, as it will require the least knowledge. Some are good, some are not so great, and many cost money.

How do I recover lost passwords?
Lost passwords can be retrieved by typing in the email address you registered with, and the password will be mailed in a few seconds. It is your job to keep track with your password, not the moderator's job!


What are the icons suppose to mean?
Icons are used through out the site, mainly on the threads/posts. These icons reflect the mood of the post. The other type of icons are folder icons which some times can show new, old, or hot threads.


What are avatars?
Avatars is a term which is simply a picture that will be in your profile. This enables one to simply look at an avatar and instantly recongnizes who is posting without looking at the username. You can upload a custom avatar in GIF or JPEG format, with maximum dimensions of 120 pixels wide and 120 pixels high, and a maximum filesize of 10kB.


Instant Messaging
Instant Messaging enables members to send an "IM" to another user quickly. The message will arrive to other user within seconds as a popup and/or notice at the top of the page. When the star beside the username is listed in the Who's Online part of the board, you can click on it to send the user an IM. Note: The Who's Online delays 10 mins after a user goes offline before marking the user as offline. You may send an IM, but if the user is offline, he will recieve the IM the next time he or she logs in. IMs are not retained; there is no Inbox or Sent folder. Once the recipient has read the message, it is gone.


How do I modify Profile/Preferences?
Throughout the entire board, there are links to modify your profile and preferences. These options allow you to customize the way you surf across the board to your preferences. Also, you can modify your profile at the same time.
