Where are you trying to upload them to? If it's the galleries, there is a limit on the size (I'll have to look it up again since I don't hit this). You'll need to resize the picture down a bit. There are a variety of online places to resize your picture on if you need help with that.

Heh.. many people aren't sure how to do this stuff so it's good to have the discussion here.

You should upload the pictures to a picture sharing website like Flickr and then link them into the post.

Thanks. And for additional educational purposes, why upload them to an intermediary website before linking here? Is that because the intermediate website will do the resizing automatically or for other reasons? I ask because I wonder if the convenience of Flikr etc. is worth the loss of privacy/control? or am i being silly?

We don't allow for uploading of pictures directly to posts from your computer. It's a space thing as well as a security thing.

For the youtube, you just need the last bit of the youtube link. For example, if this was the youtube I wanted to post: www.youtube.com/watch?v=2C7mNr5WMjA

then I would just put the 2C7mNr5WMjA in between the YouTube tags.

1. Click on "User CP," in the green bar above.
2. Select "Paid Subscriptions," in the sidebar on the left-hand side of the page.
3. Select a paid membership which you would like.
4. Pay for that membership.
5. Now you have the ability to have your photo for an avatar.

I don't know if this applies to you but I was trying to upload from my IPhone but it didn't work. I then used my PC & could do it. I still need to figure out how to use my picture as my avatar (not very tech-savvy!).

Default More newbie questions

Thanks for your help!
1. What do the rep points mean & why are they there?
2. How do you subscribe to threads?
3. Does anyone reply personally to you in that list of thank you posts related to comment I made in a thread? I accidentally opened up a reply to me-related to one of my posts (not a private message, I know how to do that) but when I looked again could not find it. It was to me as it started: "Anya".

Hope the last question makes sense, thanks again.
