    I second this. Even eight is immensely helpful.

    How do I change my photo? It says "
    You do not have permission to view this page or perform this action" when I click the avatar page.

    You probably need a certain number of posts before you can do that. Don't spam the forum because of it though :D.

    Seige, I'm not sure how to use Imgur. After I drag the photo to Imgur, it tells me to "Give your post a title ..." and "Add descriptions". Do I directly copy & paste this Imgur photo onto SDF?

    Currently you need to create an account on IMGUR so that you can paste the BBS link here on sinodefence. Here are the steps you'll need to follow:

    1) Sign in to imgur with your user account.

    2) Click on the "New Post" button on the top left corner and use either the image url or browse for local image from your computer.

    3) After your image has been successfully uploaded, click on your username on the upper right corner and select "images".

    4) Click on the image you just uploaded.

    5) Copy the image link from under the "BBCode (message boards and forums) header.

    6) Paste the photo on the website, like this.

    Could I just drag the Imgur image to my desktop, and attach the file to SDF? Wouldn't that be much easier?

    If you directly attach the image it'll use up the bandwidth on our server, unfortunately.

    I encourage you guys to upload images to SDF instead of third party as third party hosted images tend to change into dicks and pussies (I've deleted so many posts over the years as pics of warships and tanks were changed into nudes, WTF?) and then SDF gets in trouble.

    Reputable sites like imgur may be an exception.

    Photobucket and a number of the old reliables have all become Paywalled. "Oh we will happily store your pictures but we want cash for you to use them."
