Yep. According to my knowledge anyway. I'll give you a star for fixing my PM problem so quickly. :P Who'd a-thought? :twisted:

What does it mean if someone's name is written in green?

Green names mean someone is a Beta Tester. They are the ones who test upcoming tech features on the board, like our Regis theme.

By using a photo upload site, like photobucket or imgur, and using the link with the [img] tags.

Is it possible to post images from my device's gallery?

I know it's a kinda a unspoken rule, but is it completely against the rules to have yourself as your profile picture?

It's allowed if you want to, just as long as it follows the other avatar rules (being PG and such.)

I vote we change "The Gallery" to "The Little Theater." Just a thought.

What's up with the avatars? IDK, maybe it's just me, but every time I've tried to use a high quality photo in the past 6 months, I set it as my avatar and it's like 240 p. Am I doing something wrong? Other people seem to have good quality pics.

It does make sense that your avatar would not be as high resolution as it would be if you viewed it on your phone or computer, seeing as how the maximum avatar size is 140 by 140. Other than that, I'm not sure if there's anything else I can do to help, since all of the avatars here won't be larger than 140 by 140.

Also your avatar seems to be of pretty good quality on my screen, it's just the same as everyone else's avatars.

I know that much :P IDK, maybe it's just me, but my avi always looks like it's been intentionally blurred. I've shrunk it down to 140 by 140 on editing apps and it always looks much sharper and nicer before I put it on here. Oh well. Thanks anyways, guys!
