    Hi Marcell - I have attempted to upload both a signature pic and a 'profile' pic.

    I made sure they meet the size criteria (pixels as well as KB) but they still don't appear.

    The appear when I open the links to 'preview/edit' but don;t appear when I post.

    Is it because I'm a new poster? Or just a boogering it up somehow?
    I may not do it all right, but I'll do it myself the best I can - THATS HOT RODDING!
