    I've got a question. When I signed up here, I accidentally put a space between the Mad and Master in my name, making it: Mad Master
    On the old site, my name was: Madmaster. I prefer Madmaster 10 times more than Mad Master. Is there any way to change it?

    I've got another question: Are we allowed to create groups using the group thing? Or is that against the rules?

    If you click it, it just denies you permission, so...
    No.

    Oh ok, thanks.

    I didn't want to click it in case it was against the rules or something. But yeah, thanks.

    XD I actually kind of like the new name. There are too many yoshis here anyway.

    This is the basic question thread, so I suppose I should ask this here, right?

    So, back in the old Canvas, people made extra, blank posts after the initial (I don't think I've seen any topics with these right now, though). From what I understand it's for archiving, but, why? Is it merely to make the archive easier to read and less cluttered while editing, or is there some invisible character limit? I'd just like to know before starting my topic again, because if there is some character limit I feel I would need a few of these "archive posts". Thanks.

    Hey, is there a way you can rise the max file size for a sigpic? excellences signature is "too big" in file size so it won't let me.

    I believe there is a character limit, but I'm not sure what it is.

    I suggest pming jryanm and fiftyeighthens about it.

    Possible. Just need to find the piece in the coding that puts those boxes and replace them with an appropriate picture.

    What are the size restrictions for avatars and signatures please?

    Also, is it possible that the amount of waiting time between posts could be reduced about 10 seconds? It's really annoying.

    @Eraser- I'm not sure that can be done, so I'll have to check it out really fast.

    @Ultimate Yoshi- Did you try putting mulitple images into the box that allows you to add different signature pictures into the sig?
    And what's this?

    Avatar restrictions is 150x150. What sucks about this one is that the picture cannot be over 150x150 pixels which the other one you could resize.

    I don't remember the signature restriction but I'm sure there's a thread about it.

    Still no idea. It won't let me put in two 'Current Signature Picture's. And nothing works for images in the plain old text area.

    @Ultimate Yoshi- Basically when you click "edit profile" and go to "edit signature" there should be a large box of text under your current signature image. I mean to try adding more image URL's into that tab.

    Edit: Then it may be because it could exceed the signature limit, if the image you want to add is large, try adding a small one really fast to some confirm something.

    And Eraser, the post time limit thing you asked for was something I couldn't find, unless I'm missing something. Try asking an admin.
    And what's this?

    alright, I'll check up on that.
    Thanks Rebel.

    EDIT: That doesn't look like the code for images at all...

    I get it, you're using the wrong tags.

    Instead of:

    <a href="http://s931.photobucket.com/albums/ad151/Zachyale/Yoshi%20and%20Kirby%20comics/?action=view&current=YAK.png" target="_blank"><img

    Try going to your photobucket, and click the image you want, instead of using the HTML URL, try using the one with image tags on it.
    And what's this?
