Edit signature, then basically just find the image source link. Hit the "PIC" button, find the appropriate size (400x200 is usually what I go with) and there ya go.
It worked using image instead of Pic, but thanks all the same.

Hello, I find two particular things about this forum to be rather strange:

1. Profile data and post count appear on the left side of the screen, but those who log in see it to their right. Why is this a thing? It feels weird.

2. I saw that two members joined these boards a few days apart and have different post counts. The member with higher post count and later (I think) join date is still in blue name period, but the one on the other end of the spectrum graduated that. Both joined February this year. How do I graduate blue name phase?

All I can think of looking at it is; "I would certainly love to be able to get rid of it"

I was literally coming here to ask if anyone else gets creeped out by the occasional blinking of the default avatars. I guess I found my answer.

Thank you for answering my questions. :)

And sorry about the second question. I saw the answer after the last edit I made and kept it there. :oops:

I honestly would answer I just...don't really know how? The program the forums run on isn't my area of expertise lol.

And no need to be sorry; it's a common question, and this is the common question thread. I am constantly checking on the "blue names" and trying to get people approved. So, don't worry. If you're legit, it's just a matter of time. Sorry that it's this way, but it's better than the alternative.

I've seen plenty of spambots on other boards, so I understand the probationary measure. :)

VERY LATE to the party but easily explained.

Forum themes are coded different. The default has them situated on the left, while other forum themes could have them on the right. You can configure the forum theme for Guest and Default User Theme and have them be different. Same with how the forum menus are structured or even how user profile data from a post is either left or right alternating every other post. All depends on theme.

Your other part of the post was a nailed by Maritonic, so ima gloss that one :P

I have tried to post topics on the Fantasy Matches board and I have joined the User Group for it, but the matches I want to post involve Ultra Kaiju and when I try to post the links to the Kaiju's page on the Ultraman wiki it says I can't post links to other sites off of Toho Kingdom, yet I've seen matches that do just that.

Am I doing something wrong? or is it something I can't do because I'm still in the probationary period of my membership?

Is there a way I can filter out what appears in my new posts page? I have no interest in certain sections of the forum, and would greatly appreciate if I could filter them out.

Not currently, unfortunately. There used to be a "Blacklist Thread" option but that was removed when the forums were upgraded a few years ago.

Is there a way to embed Tweets? Can you even do this with phpBB?

Curiosity: What happens to older topics/threads? Are they periodically deleted or archived? I vaguely recall threads in the Monster Manor that have disappeared, and old Attractive Fictional Characters threads disappearing as well.

Custom sigs for the Godzilla Design Bracket challenge going on in general films. Not sure how they're made but I'd check there.

They could talk to each other?

To a degree we never imagined......

I gotta ask because I've been looking and can't seem to find an answer (though I know it's here somewhere)
How do you properly post a youtube video?
