    You have to have those picture somewhere on the internet. http://www.photobucket.com is a good site to use. I believe that you can also link to a picture from Facebook.

    To post that picture, you can use the "tree" icon in your option bar when you post, or use can use the [IMG]InsertImageURLHere.jpg[/IMG] coding. If you need to know how to find the specific URL for an image, right click on that image, go to "Properties", and copy the "Address" for the image. Photobucket will give it to you under the image that you can just copy it there and insert into your post.

    I'm wondering what the rules are regarding one's avatar. It says it should be more than 200 x 200, but doesn't say what the limit is. I don't want to make a mistake and use one too big, so I'll ask here if that's ok.

    I know this does not help that much but I put almost anything on google and it fits.

    As far as I know, every pic will be put in the same size (200x200). That's why mine is stretched and that's why big one will appear small.

    LAJ_FETT, the tech admin, will know for sure.

    JKF, somehow it helps, since your experience means that you can add anything you want (as long as it's family friendly, of course). ;)

    How do I quote someone? Like if there's a long passage and I just want to grab a few sentences. I know there's a thread on here somewhere but I couldn't find it....

    You mean like this (see below)?

    You've searched for the thread with the answer... I know that there's one, but I can't find it either. :confused:

    The answer is easy: Hit the reply button on the right of the post you want to quote and then delete the parts you don't need. You just need to make sure that you keep the part in the brackets in the beginning and in the end of each quote. If you like to quote the same post a few times like I did in this one, you need to copy/paste the entirely quote or you simply hit "reply" as often as you need it.

    And here's the thread to test things like that. :)

    Is it possible to embed just an MP3 into a post? I made a Star Wars Medley, but the audio was blocked on YouTube because of all the tracks in it. Is there a way I can do this so people can listen to it without going to another site?

    Sadly, there's no way to upload music, videos or pics to this site directly. You need to upload it somewhere else first and link it here afterwards. There's no other way.

    Not the answer you wanted to here, but I hoped it helps at least. :)

    What are the rules on signature images? Size limits, etc? I can't find anything in the rules about them, yet I don't see them in anybody's posts.

    As far as I know, they are disabled for signatures. If you plan to do a manual sig for each post, I'd avoid images, because they take up to much space and leads the focus to the wrong place in a post. In addition, there are still some user around with a slow internet connection. So it's just fair to not post too many pics. If you still put a pic in a manual signature, you will get asked to stop this for the reasons above.

    Does this answer your question?

    We tried images in signatures when the mods were testing the temp boards. It really slowed stuff down and some of the large images were just distracting from the posts.
