How do I...


If there's something on the board that you want to know how to do, or see if something is even possible, ask here.




To begin, here's how to post images:

Method one (uploading): When writing a post, scroll below the box where you normally type your message. You will see a "Browse" button which will let you choose an image (or any other file) on your hard drive to attach. When you post your message, the picture will appear below the text.
Note: this option is not available using "Quick Reply"

Method two (hotlinking): If the picture you want to show is already on the Internet, you will need to type in the following:
[img]location[/img]
Where the location is the address of the file. For example, If I wanted to show you the Utopia Parkway album cover, I would type in

For this messageboard, the picture you want as your avatar has to be online rather than on your computer. There are free picture hosting sites out there, but if you don't want to hassle with that I can host the picture for you if you email it to me.

I know that this is a "Why Is It?" question in a "How Do I?" thread, but I couldn't be bothered starting a new thread. :)

I often log on to the mb and see one person indicated as being in the chatroom.

When I click on the link and go to the chatroom, there is no-one in there.

Is this a bug?

:huh::huh:




I don`t remember, I don`t recall
I got no memory of anything at all......

I've noticed that too. I've always guessed that it just happens when someone doesn't actually exit out of the chat room, but just closes the window.

I've noticed this happening recently too. There is a table that keeps track of online members and sometimes an entry will stick in there after the person has left. It's very old software (the chatroom) and my assumption is that the bug is caused by Firefox users somehow, since the room wasn't created with anything besides IE in mind.
