About the spoiler tag, does it come up in preview mode or not?

When I try it in preview mode it doesn't change the colour, and I don't really want to post anything until I know its worked.
[color=#F1F1F1] does this work? [/color]

I cant get pics to work. I add the pics in the "add image" box that I used to, it shows up on but is gone in a preview or post.

Any help on this?

Again, posted several pics for a long time this same way with no issues.

It could be the sub-forum (many don't allow pics to be posted by users)?

Or you could send me the link to one of the pics and where you were trying to post and I could try a test one?

How do you enable the file box at the bottom of the reply to message window? It always says " Either the feature is disabled, or you do not have sufficient permission" - how do I enable it?

You can't - I think it's only enabled in the Poster mash-up forum. It's the only part of the site you can append files I think.

I can't get images to come up in my posts. So for example, say I wanted to post a picture, I'd look for one on google, click on a image and copy it, then if I go to add the image to my post I'd use the [image] [Image] instruction...only it won't work? Can I anyone tell me how I can do it and explain as I'm an idiot 'cause I'm totally clueless. Thanks a lot, I'd really appreciate it.

As Elab said, it's probably something to do with the sub-forums. See, they're linked to the articles on the main site, and they obviously don't want their comments sections packed with pictures.

I wish there was a way around this (i.e. only having images supported on the forum side), but maybe it's just not possible to do.

Is it a specific sub-forum or them all? I'm forever getting that message in Reviews.

A quick question, if I may be so bold: How do people give themselves custom user descriptions? For example, right now Spaldron has his set to "This means nothing to me"

I'm proud to be categorized as "EMPIRE ELITE", don't get me wrong! It's just that, if it were up to me, I'd like to be known as "The Eminent Archaeologist".

Go to this thread

and ask for the change to be made, one of the mods will take care of it then.

I can't give myself an avatar, when I go to edit my details and try to upload my avatar (88KB JPEG) all is good until I click "apply changes" and then I get a "500 internal server error"
anyone else having this problem? I have already reported this on the Bugs and Glitches thread but nobody has got back to me.

Where are you uploading the avatar from? Empire itself doesn't host pics - you link to a URL where the pic is hosted. So a free site like eg photobucket.

But where are you hosting the pics online? EMpire won't host the pics like Twitter does - you need to enter a URL to an online host like photobucket.

How ingenious! This site could use some tiny improvements for the threads though. Just a bit if I may say.
