Okay so I know this isnt a football question, but how do I get pictures on my post like everyone else has.
I have been on this site for over 4 years but I used to only use the site for reading but now that Im actually posting things and being active on this I would like my profile to look nice and original like everyone else.
Thanks to anyone that helps me out.

Do you mean as an avatar below your name, a signature pic below your posts, or just posting a pic in general to a post?

Both the avatar below your name and the signature pic below your posts.

For the one below your name, you need a pic in the range of 80x80-100x100 pixels, and preferably host it somewhere like photobucket. For sigs, not sure on the size limits, but i'm sure someone on the site would be happy to make one for you that conforms to the rules.

Here is a link to the Sig/Avy forum. Lots of people there can help you come up with an idea for a sig or avatar if you're not sure what to do.

Avatars are restricted to 80x80 pixels (so Cypher, you're going to need to resize yours). Signatures are restricted to a height of 100 pixels and a width of 600 pixels. Rules here.

To use them, you'll go to your profile tab up at the top of your screen. Under the "signature" block, you just input the signature picture using the [img]url.link.to.picture[/img] coding, like for any picture. For the avatar, there's box at the bottom of your profile page where you can input a direct link to the url of the picture you want.

It's a good idea to set up a photobucket or similar account to store your pictures so you can have a direct link to them at all times. If you have somebody design it for you, they might clear out their stash, leaving you without the picture.

I went and looked around before resizing mine. There are at least 50 people with 100x100 avatars, including everyone using the RIP Al Davis avy. 90x90 and 100x100 are all over the place. One of the mods is even rocking an 85x85.

I'm sorry, but if mods aren't following the rules to the letter, I see no reason why I should be singled out.

When I notice somebody with an oversized sig, I request that they correct it. All you need to do is resize it on photobucket or whatever site you use. It's takes less than two minutes.

Please resize your avatar.

You wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't blatantly said it was over 80x80. That's my issue.

http://www.footballsfuture.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=347052 - Our TAFT thread, in the last 5 pages, at least 8 posters with avatars that are obviously too large.

http://www.footballsfuture.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=493242 - A mod with an avatar larger than the rules forbid, along with 5 other posters. Despite 5+ mods posting multiple times, not a word was said to anyone.

http://www.footballsfuture.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=493878 - Another mod with an avatar larger than 80x80.

http://www.footballsfuture.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=488190&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=120 - 14 different posters with oversized avatars. Despite three mods posting regularly, none of them notice the extremely blatant oversized avys?

Come on, man. The rule needs to be enforced fairly, or just not enforced. I'll change mine when the actual MODS follow their own rules.

This isn't up for debate. Fret has asked a few other posters to re-size today, they have, please follow suit.
