I am not very computer savy so I was wondering how you get all those cool pictures to show up on your profile?

First you should find a pic you'd like to use as an avatar. It could be a .jpg or a .gif picture. Only one image can be displayed at a time, its width cannot exceed 150 pixels, the height cannot exceed 200 pixels, and the file size cannot be higher than 64 KB.

Then you go to your personal settings in the main menu up there: Profile - Avatar - upload the pic from a link or from your PC - done! Very Happy

Try INSERT IMAGE. I can't use HOST an IMAGE. Just doesn't work for me. Didn't on The ABY either. It worked a long time ago but then just stopped working.
Edited: Forget that, I just noticed that your pic is for Avitar not in a post.

A thread for "News" topics would be good... Or suggestions on where to post articles about Bones?

I can't see the main page just the comment about errors. Unfortunately I can't download any other browsers b/c am on a work computer. Luckily I can still jump to sections to read them.

We're really very sorry, but this time we can't do anything by ourselves: is's a MAJOR bug on the server. It seems that somehow all IE support was disabled. We informed the programmers of the site many hours ago - they're still trying to fix it.

At least there is the jump to bar at the bottom...I can use that to get to the sections and from there no problems.

I posted direct links in another topic. Hopefully it helps for the time until IE does function properly again.

I don't where to put this...and I'm might get in trouble for this, but I feel like I have to let people know. I'm the type of person that speaks up when I have a problem...no matter what positon that person has. I expressed my opinion about the SO storyline in the "spoilers" thread...and someone quoted post and wrote something back that I feel is offensive. I thought the TFF was going to be a "nice" place...and we if were going to disagree, we were going to disagree and explain why we think that...because that's what it says in the "discussion" guidelines. I respect everyone's opinion. I don't think that anyone's opinion is right or wrong...but I feel offended by what this person wrote. I know there is not much you guys can do...but I just feel like I should let you guys know.

I will look in to it for you, when and where was it i am happy to talk to the Admins and the Mods and if we all agree we will issue a warning and if this happens another 2 times after the warning the person will be Banned for a time. We are not going to accept anyone been offensive to someone else

Hello everyone and thanks for the new forum.

This is not really a big problem or anything. Just wanted to let you know that the checkbox for staying logged on is not working, at least for me. I checked and my browser is not blocking anything.

Love the Bones Halloween photo out front. It is one of my favorites.

I love the Halloween scenes and the fact that the threads change from bats to witches' hats when there are no new items. I have spent the last two days trying to turn them all into hats. The spoiler section is the toughest. Yes---I have no life out side of Bones SmileSmile

I'm sure you've all seen my post in the spoiler thread, if you have not, the gist is... I quit. If the warning header on the front page is at all in reference my posts, you'll note if you actually read them, that I did not say that anyone's opinion was unwarranted. that I agree that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, my issue is with how 2 different mods chose to deal with someone who was very unhappy with all the negativity bombarding her. Instead of remaining relatively impartial , they chose to defend their opinions which weren't even being directly attacked, one even going so far as to mock the person for suggesting there may be somewhere else that welcomes the posters opinions. I refuse to be a part of a place where there is a mob mentality and people are made to feel unwelcome because they enjoy an aspects of the show that the mods don't.

I wish you all well. I'll be coming back in periodically to check on my pm's as I have a few people I'm in the midst of conversing with, but will not be posting in any threads anymore.

Treble, the warning was not directed at you or anyone else personally. It is a general message to absolutely everyone, becasue this is supposed to be a home for all Bones fans to discuss the show.

If you wish to give up your post as a Moderator, then we are very sad, but respect any decision that you make. You are always a valuable member, and have been an excellent Moderator.

If you wish to stand by your decision to no longer post on TFF, then we wish you only the very best, and hope that you may decide to post again some day.

Our best to you, always.

Just wanted to say amen to the front page post. I've posted less lately because of the vibes around the place and I think it's great you guys are nipping it in the bud.

cheers!

I assume that your pm box is full. Delete some messages in the in-box, out-box and sent-box, it should work then! Smile

Nope-I checked that-Inbox is 14%, Sentbox is 16% and outbox is 8%....I've tried sending from my phone and computer and they aren't going anywhere....I'll try deleting everything and resending, see if that helps...
