This is being posted as a reminder to posters who have been around awhile and those who are new to the boards: Banner size : Signature banners cannot be larger then 220x75 but you are more then welcome to make them smaller. You can have text in your signature alone, but not along with a banner. You’ll have to choose, you can’t have both. As of yet, banners and icons that are animated is allowed. Adding a banner in signature : At the top of the page are some links: Main Index, FAQ’s, etc. Among these is the one that reads My Home. If you click that it will take you to your Message Box, below that is Main Configuration, there you will see Personal information, email, password, etc. beside it is a link that reads edit. After you click that it will take you to Edit profile, if you scroll down the page you will come to the Signature box. Enter the URL for your banner there between [image] [*/image] (be sure to remove the asterisk though) and click ‘preview to make sure it works (You do not need a certain amount of posts to have a banner). Adding an avatar At this site you must have 100 posts before you can get an avatar. After reaching that many posts you go to the same page as when you added your signature banner except you scroll down farther to your avatar option. If you want an avatar select URL to your avatar (100x100 max pixels, may be smaller) (.gif, .jpg, .png accepted) and enter your icons URL. Image size When using an image in your post the length can be no larger then 480 pixels on the longest side. Smaller is fine. In many threads the same image shows up several times on one page, which makes the page load more slowly. Please, when reposting an image, post it as a link. About Spoilers While this thread is not the one to discuss specific episodes, (you can discuss new episodes in the forum for that show), there is often mention of episodes in threads here. When mentioning an episode to another poster (who has seen the episode) you have to be aware that there are other posters who are reading who may have NOT seen that certain episode yet. Exercising this caution should be done on ALL forums, not just this one I’ve also seen that in the quotes you won’t hear thread people like to ‘redo scenes’ from an episode they’ve just seen, not aware that this can be spoilerish to some people. When you do post something that may spoil an episode for someone, be sure to use spoiler tags at the beginning of your post. This should look similar to this: Or if you’re not sure if what you’re posting is along the lines of Spoilers you can always put Between the spoiler tag and the text you consider spoilerish it is always polite to have a spoiler space so no one who doesn’t want to read it does: Also, even if the episode isn’t new—say last season—chances are that there is someone reading the forum that hasn’t seen it, right? Not every country is on the same episode as you are, and it’s always a plus to be courteous. Even we Moderators can’t catch every episode. Once again, the casual mention of an episode is fine but staying on the topic of the forum you are in is important. If you’d like to discuss a new episode you can go the forum for that show and they will have a discussion thread for it up.
