Picking a Desired Avatar
In order to do that, you can either go to various websites to search for them, or make one of your own. After you have chosen your desired avatar, you should "save as" it into your computer. For GIF, make sure you "save as" it as .gif file, not .jpeg. The maximum dimension for this forum is 150x300 pixels and the maximum file size is 100 KB. Anything bigger than that will give you an upload error.
After you are done with picking and choosing, you can now move on to uploading and setting it up in your Personal Details or hover over your username on the top right corner and select Avatar on the dropdown menu.
To access the search feature, click on the "search" link at the top of most pages.
You can search any forum that you have permission to search - you will not be allowed to search through private forums unless the administrator has given you the necessary security rights to do so.
There are two editor modes available: BB Code Editor and Rich Text Editor. When using the BB Code Editor, there are no vBcode buttons to assist your editing. You must enter any BBcode markup manually in this editor.
When using Rich Text Editor, highlight the text you wish to modify and press the appropriate button. This will place the proper BBcode tags around the selected text. Pressing a button while not having any selected text, will simply enable the BBcodes for any subsequent text you type.
To use the clickable smilies, simply click the smiley that you want to insert into your message and it will be placed where you have chosen for it. The smilies display in tabbed categories, so clicking on those will show more smilies from that group.

If you have used email or internet chat systems, you will probably be familiar with the concept of smilies already. Certain combinations of text characters are converted into smilies. For example, :) is converted into a smiling face. To understand smilie codes, tilt your head to the left and look at the text: you will see that :) represents two eyes and a smiling mouth.
For a list of the smilies currently used by this forum, click here.
On occasions, you may want to prevent the text in your message being converted into smilies. You can wrap the tag around the message to disable them.
