Basic Rules

  • Use common sense when deciding on an image to use. (eg: use nothing likely to cause offence)
  • Users cannot include political statements or logos in images.
  • ShrimperZone also operates a no advertising policy. (except the occasional paid-for advertisements)
  • Images that are bigger than 400x100 px will be resized.

What are signatures?

'Signatures' contain information that you want to include at the bottom of all your posts. This might include pictures, links to your site(s), quotes, etc.

How to set your signature, avatar or profile picture:

For signatures, click on 'Edit Signature' under the 'Settings and Options' area of the navigation bar within the User CP.

To select an existing or upload a new avatar, click on 'Edit Avatar'.

To upload a profile picture, click on 'Edit Profile Picture' in the 'Your Profile' section.

[Two above points from FAQ].

Hope this can help some people, either who are already into graphics, or who want somewhere to start off with. :)
