doesnt seem to display when using any of the imageshack codes/links - are they enabled in the forum for all users?

A picture will appear in a sig if it is not too big (400 x 75 size limit) and it is entered correctly and you tick the checkbox "Apply signature: "

All image links here at Tom's start with capitalized letters IMG surrounded by brackets and end with /IMG surrounded by brackets.


I've heard there is a "weight limit" (size in KB) on sigs and avatars but I don't know what it is. It's there to keep people like me :D  from entering a full-length movie as an animated gif.

The file info at the link you now have showing puts it at:

Filename: unleduecf.png
Size: 239Kb
Resolution: 640 x 66

So it's too big.

I've seen some recent post concerning problems with this site. There are a few things apparently not working right now, such as most of the right column and maybe the sig system is down too. I tried it out yesterday and it worked for me but then other people are having a terrible time with a few features here that aren't giving me any trouble at all.

I'd say to keep trying every day and don't lose hope, it may not be a problem on your end.

Gif files are fine, I use one in my avatar. Most popular picture files work, but I'm not sure of Psd files.
