    Posting Problems

If you keep getting logged out, can not answer posts on the first attempt etc, then you are almost certainly on AOL and using their browser. Try using Internet Explorer, or even better Firefox. Either should solve your problem. Otherwise, click the 'delete forum cookies' at the bottom left of the index page, close your browser, open it again and log in.


All the Bots and Spiders you might see browsing the forum are indexing the posts for different search engines (Google, Yahoo etc) They are nothing to worry about.

    Photos - How to

To post a picture it needs to be on the web somewhere first. Use Imageshack (link at the top of the index page) to host a picture from your PC, un check 'include details' and copy the code in 'Hotlink for forums (1) ' and paste it in to your post. Please use an image under 700pix, otherwise you will not be able to link it. If you haven't a resizing program, or it's too complex to use easily, then download and install Pix Resizer Its a free photo resizer, and very easy to use.

    Avatars - How to

Find a photo you want, make sure it is no wider than 200 pix (see the Forum Rules) upload it as above and past the code on to a notepad document. You will have something like this


then remove everything outside of the [img ] [/img ] tags, leaving


Next, go to your User Control Panel>Profile>Edit Avatar, paste the code in, and submit.


If you have notification of new PM's, but can't see them , then your inbox is, or has been, full. Once you have made space, click on Release all on-hold messages above the list of your PM's to access them.

If you prefer, you can change it so that the oldest message is always deleted if a new message arrives to a full inbox.

Go to User Control Panel>Private Messages>Rules, Folders and Settings>If Folder is full>delete oldest Message>change

    Friends and Foes

You can ignore posts and PM's made by individual members if you wish by setting them as a 'foe' More information here


Si el español es tu idioma y tenés dificultades con las instrucciones del foro que están en ingles, podes seleccionar español en tu perfil. Ésto, por supuesto, no va a cambiar los posts que la gente ha escrito.

    Other Languages

You can use an on line translator like Google or Babel Fish to translate whole pages (it is not always accurate, but gets close enough most of the time)

    Eye Strain

If you find the dark forum style causes you eye strain, you can select a lighter style in you User Control Panel. Just select Lightsilver2 in Forum Preferences.

    Any Other Questions
