Please be judicious with your use of the quote button. Feel free to edit the quote to highlight just the selection, ask yourself if it's necessary to quote the guy who posted just before you did, and instead of quoting a whole screen worth of text, just precede your post with "@Other person". Some people can find it annoying to scroll through whole huge blocks of quoted text that aren't necessary to clarify to what you are referring.

I'll demonstrate the "@" thing if you don't know it.

@ Guspasho

Hey Gus, how's it going. You're totally right on when you suggest quoting only the parts of posts you want to reference and not the whole thing. And that other stuff too. Go you. You rule.

Another small request. Try to encapsulate long URLs that would break the tables. That way you don't get the horizontal scroll bar and have to scroll right and left to read what everyone else wrote on that page.

This isn't a knock on anybody or anything, or a requirement, just a helpful recommendation to smooth over forum browsing for everyone.

You can use the buttons in the Post A Reply screen. Or type the tags out yourself. For example, I can make this:

http://www.kumoricon.com/forums/posting.php?mode=reply&t=1202

look like this:

Reply Page

by placing the link in a URL tag and the URL tags around the text you want to replace it with. Quote and you can see just how I typed it.

Avatars can be added in your profile. There's a link in the bar on the top of every page to your profile whenever you're logged in. Then the "avatar control panel" is on the bottom of that page. You can select your own picture by storing it online somewhere and then linking to it. Is that what you meant?
