What's this BBcode and how do I use it?
Full guide can be found right here.

A bot has posted spam/porn/etc. What should I do?
In most cases, a mod will catch it. However, there is a handy Report Post button at the bottom of each post. Please make use of it.

How do I add images to my posts/signature?
Adding images to posts or signatures can be done by simply pasting the url of the image you want to use, and surrounding it with the image tags.

This:

How do I modify an image's height and width?
Resizing images can be done by adding the following to the existing image tag:

Code: [Select]

You may adjust the height and width of the image by replacing the numbers to how large or small you want the image to be. The entire image will scale itself as long as one of the conditions has been set.

How do I change my signature/avatar?
You'll be able to find your signature and avatar by going to "Forum Profile", which can be found under "Modify Profile" in the "Profile" section. From there, you'll be able to edit your signature and avatar to your liking, as long as they do not violate the rules.

Where are the rules?
The Official Rules and Guidelines topic can be found in the HelpDesk board. You may also come across other locked and stickied threads which you'll find across various boards, you may wish to review them as they contain useful information as well.

The images/text I put in my sig is cut off or just outright missing. What's the deal, holmes?
As of September 8th, 2016, signatures are now incapable of exceeding a height of 200px, meaning that anything that happens to exceed it will appear cut off or missing.

How do I create a rotating avatar or signature?
Various websites such as signavatar and randimg allow users to create rotating avatars and signatures. The amount and size of avatars is dependent on the website you decide to host it on.


More questions and answers will be added as needed.
