Ah okay.

Anyways, back to my problem:
This works.

It's the same code as in my signature - which, as you can see, does NOT work.

Re: Forum Rules and Advice

This forum has a weird thing for images in a signature. I'll edit this post with a quick tutorial for it later.


EDIT
Kay, here it is.

Getting an image in your signature is weird for some reason. IMG tags won't work. What you have to do is upload the image, under "Signature Picture". You can upload the image from your computer or using an external link, just like an avatar. Once you've uploaded it, click "Insert Signature Picture" and you'll get some tags that say SIGPIC in brackets. Place these wherever you want the image to go, and voila.

Re: Tech Support

My problem is that I want a picture that is also a URL. Otherwise dragon cave won't know that somebody is viewing the page with my dragons on them.

Re: Tech Support

And we all know what a horrible thing shrinkage is for men...

Could be because the forum has size limits on images. The other forum I'm on does that, and I think it auto-sizes them to forum specifications. I *think*. Not positive.

Currently the signature image limit is 500x100 pixels.

Re: Tech Support

I don't really get this rep power thing. My level is 1 but apparently I have 12 points. And when I try checking them in the user cp, it only gives one rep received. Anyone care to explain the difference between points and power and if points are a single case of someone boosting you, how do you view the others?

Re: Tech Support

Yeah I noticed that too, I've been given one rep point but in the User CP it says I have 11.

Re: Tech Support

That's still not it.

Your reputation points are different from your reputation power.

Your reputation points is simply how liked you are (as in how much people have +repped you, if someone with a rep power of 2 +reps a post, your reputation goes up by 2.)

Currently, this is how reputation power is calculated:

Every 75 days, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power.

For every 250 posts, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power.

For every 15 points of reputation, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power.

A user must have 5 posts and at least 5 points of reputation (not hard, you start with 10) before he can affect others with reputation.

A user can give 10 reputations over each 24 hour period.

You must give reputation to 5 different users before you can hit the same person again.

Re: Tech Support

I must register to preserve my username. And then I must post to justify my registry. So, for my first post here, I shall be amused:

By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.

Apparently the whole purpose of this forum violates the rules.

Re: Tech Support

Is there a chance of increased the amount of characters in one post? It's going to be difficult for the more wordy posts (blank page submissions, character sheets for RP's etc...), in fact I'd reached and gone over the amount of characters allowed in one post with my newest character for SBS and I had to split it up into two posts.

Re: Tech Support

Question:

What's the plus sign next to someone's name mean, on the Active Users list? Momiji, Oni, and Nunu all have one. So what is it?
