    I wish there were some optional (dark) skins/themes. I hate light/white forums.

    The Dimension limits for this filetype are 100 x 100. We were unable to resize your file so you will need to do so manually and upload it again. Your file is currently 511 x 387.

    You can resize it using Gimp, or send it to me in PM and I can resize it for you. Profile picture is 100x100 but avatar requires 80x80

    You would need to upload it to photobucket or similar and paste in the URL to where it is uploaded. Or you can email it to me at fozzy71 <at> fozzy71.com

    You can also use Irfanview, a free program. It's a viewer, and it lets you edit to a certain degree, including re-sizing pictures.

    I have 40k+ forum posts on vB forums and am very happy for this change. WowBB was a bit ridiculous, but I understand completely. When the forum where I now have 25k posts switched from uB to vB 18 months ago, no one liked it either, at first.

    If you use FireFox the FFvB extension is awesome. You can ignore, and highlight posters, etc. Really powerful tool. I quit browsing with it recently and replaced it with Chrome, but I still keep it open all day for my work email system which does not like Chrome.

    When using vBulletin, photo bucket works best for posting pictures

    Tried the irfan veiw thing, diddnt work.
    Nevermind. It sent it to the wrong folder. I searched for the file, and that cute little dog found it for me. What a pain. I hope we dont have to screw around like this with each photo we want to post. >:{
