    For some reason, everbody else can get pictures to work for them.

    Whenever I try to post a picture or the jumpy icon, it instead links to the page where I got it from (some even being wrong pages) or just shows up with :12: / ;12;.
    Any idea why this happens?

    Also, does anyone know the answer for the question I posted last month?
    Gen 1/2 Sprites.. if they're missing It shouldn't take that long to add them.. Plus we it's a limited amount of them anyway.

    Considering we are mid-November already, I'm sure they'll be starting the name change process soon =)
    Yes, Ellie who apparently has chosen to the make the changes, is a little busy with her real life. Kirby recently got Promoted to Admin since the Admins need a little more help in doing their duties. (Well, I know that one admin is actually Server Room Staff, they need the Admin powers to make the changes needed to keep the forum up.)

    Some sub-forums disable the IMG links so it would will appear as a link. At the bottom of the forum and thread pages you can see a box with options. Oh look, video.

    As for they need to correctly typed. For Bulbasaur to Kingler, you need to make sure their National dex number has zeros before the actual number.

    Bulbasaur is ;001;
    Kingler is ;099;
    Shinx is ;403;

    Also if you have "Disable smilies in text" option ticked, they won't appear.

    I know that, but I'm doing this in Animé Polls, where other users can post picture, sprites and the such, and even with smilies enabled (which they already were), they still do not appear.

    Can you link to an example? I tried looking through your posts but can only see posts in Clubs and General Discussion, and none of them have images in them.

    I know, I've used preview post before posting, as I've had problems with pictures in the past.

    How do I delete messages in my inbox? Because I'm only allowed a maximum of 200 and I'm approaching that limit, so I'd like to delete some of the older messages to make room for new ones.

    Also, why is my 'sent' items folder always empty? I can never view the PMs I've sent to others Is there some setting I need to enable?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Deleting messages: In your Inbox you can either scroll right to the bottom and click 'empty folder', or you can manually check the messages you want to delete (using the checkboxes on the right-hand side, next to the date and time you received the messages) and then click "Selected Messages (_)" --> Delete --> Proceed.

    Sent items: On the General Settings page, scroll down to "Messaging & Notification", then down to "Private Messaging". Next to "Sent Private Messages", make sure "Save a copy of sent messages in my Sent Items folder by default" is checked. Click "Save changes" at the bottom of the page.

    Nothing, really, as far as I know - unless said permission group is Fizzy Bubbles (which you'll need permission for), in which case it enables you to post in the Fizzy Bubbles forum.

    didnt insult me huh? calling me full of myself isnt an insult now.. ok. also i have that in my signature because people (like you apparently) cant read anything and send me messages asking the same questions over and over again when they are all answered in the name change thread itself. go read that before whining and complaining.


    also i can refuse to change anyone's name for any reason if i want to. just keep that in mind.

    be sure to read the rules of every section before posting ;)

    Little Miss Stalinist/Secret Al-Qaeda agents (i.e. Ellie) would be a ***** even if she was a conserative republican. What makes her the way she is happens to be the fact that the webmaster of this site let's her behave like this. (Of course, I would never make a liberal a staff member at any forum I'd be in charge of, regardless.)

    Er, another really noob question here...

    What does 'vm' stand for? Someone just asked me to vm them and I'm too embarrassed to ask them what vm means because they'll probably think I'm not being serious...I know pm stands for private message...

    Visitor message. They're messages left on one's profile, and can be viewed by anyone (unless the user in question has set their profile to private).

    There's addons that exist for that sort of thing, but Serebii doesn't like using them for the forum so it's probably not going to happen.

    Is there any way to tell if a member is perma-banned as opposed to regular bans that expire? I believe before the big forum upgrade one's avatar would go away if it was permanent but stay if regular.

    As said above, although I think you just did that anyways.

    I leave my profile fully open so that I can check if I get VMs and stuff while I am offline. Now when I try to do so I get the "You aren't logged in or you don't have permission......" page. I can't look at anyone's profile while offline now. Did something happen?

    Yeah the permissions were changed (not sure if temporarily or permanently though) as there was a problem with what guests/those not logged in could see on the activity streams of staff profiles.

    I see. I noticed I could see what they posted on the private forums where people challenge bans and post private questions. Totally not lurking at all, nope >.>

    Then you should have let one of us know about it given there has been numerous attempts to fix that problem. =|

    But yes, there you go as to why you can't see stuff when not logged in now.
