• Please note that signatures and avatars on iLounge are only available after reaching certain membership thresholds.

    Signatures

    In order to be able to have a signature, users must have been a member for 7 days and have accumulated 10 posts.


    Avatars

    Avatars are reserved for only the most senior of iLounge forum members. Users will not be able to use an avatar until they have been a member for a minimum of one year, and accumulated 1,500 posts. This is considered the Veteran Lounger level of membership.


    A note on post whoring...

    We welcome and encourage our members to make valuable and useful contributions to the iLounge forums, and to have fun, socialize, and actively participate in discussions on the forums. However, as per the Forum Policy, we will not tolerate excessive and unnecessary posting. Posting inane and pointless messages solely to increase one's post count in the hopes of reaching a higher membership level will be dealt with by the forum staff. Unnecessary posts may be subject to removal, and persisting in this behaviour will result in post counts being reduced and any further action being taken as deemed necessary.


  • With the number of recent threads from brand new users that we have observed in our Classifieds forum selling goods under questionable circumstances, we have instituted a new policy restricting new members of iLounge from posting new threads in the Classifieds forum until they have reached "Regular Member" status.

    New users become Regular Members once they have made 10 posts and been a member of the iLounge Forums for at least 7 days. Prior to this time, members may still read the Classifieds forum, and even respond to existing threads for items being sold by other members, but they may not create new threads advertising their own items for sale.

    This will hopefully help to protect our user community by discouraging fraudulent users from signing up and posting classified ads without having at least a very basic level of established membership in our forums.

    Obviously all users should still exercise due diligence when making use of our classifieds forums, but we hope that this restriction will help to decrease the number of blatantly fraudulent ads that we have been seeing in recent weeks.

    Please be sure to review our Classified Forum Policy for more information.

How do I put in my avatar again? I will gladly (actually I would prefer it) use my own hosted pic.

For some reason I can't find anyplace to enter my avatar URL.

Also, how can I get my post count back? I was at ~600 before the redesign!

Well here is my avatar, if it doesn't show up I'll get a different URL soon.

under UserCP -> Edit Profile, right at the bottom of the page, you should be given the option to put your avatar there.

If it's not there, it might be that you need a certain post count though.

That is total BS that I would need a certain post count. I had 600 posts on the last board!

First off you did not have 600 posts on the last forum. And second, you do not need a certain post count to do it. If you go to Edit options in the User CP, click on change avatar at the bottom of the page. Towards the end you will see a place where you can add a url.

Timmy is correct on both counts; s_n_m had 450 posts on the last board when it closed, and post count has nothing to do with avatars.

To make an avatar, click "User CP", then "Edit Options", then scroll to the bottom right of the page that loads and click "Change Avatar."

:mad: :mad: :mad:

That is the illustrious Samus Aran, the bounty hunter from the Metroid game series. She would never do a porn. And she is certainly not anime!

(well, how else would she be drawn on a gameboy advance?? I really dislike most cartoons labeled as anime.)
