- Due to the increase in large signatures, the 667 staff have come to a decision to impose new signature size rules. The new size limit for signatures is 9cm's in height and 19cm's in length (See here or click link in important threads section above). This rule has been in action since Febuary 6th, 2012.
Each member has their own profile which is used to identify them on the website. A member profile records various statistics such as rank, posts, join date, location, e-mail and gender (although personal information can be hidden for privacy if needed.)
Usernames and Display names
Each member must have a unique username to sign in to the forum with, allowing them to comment on threads and message other members. A member chooses their user name when registering for a profile on the forum. This acts as an online identity for the member without having to give out personal information, such as a real name, on the internet. If a member wishes, they can change their 'Display Name' to what ever they desire (If inappropriate a moderator can change it). If you change your display name however, that does not mean your user name will be any different. You will still have to log in with your user name, not your display name.
An avatar is a picture used to help identify a member on the forum, although you do not need to add one if you do not wish to. An avatar is displayed next to the member's user name and rank on there profile page and also appears next to anything you post on the forum. A member can use a number of things as their avatar to show off their personality. There are three types of Avatars you can have. You can choose from a variety of default avatars that are already on 667, or you can upload any image you desire. To do this you must go into the 'Avatar' section while editing your profile and click on the text on the right that says 'Upload or Link your own avatar image'. You can upload an image from your file by clicking the 'Select Image' button or copy the image you want's URL and paste it in the box labelled 'Link Image'. Also try and get an image that is already square so that it fits into the avaliable space making te image bigger and easilier to see. The third option is to create your own personalised avatar which you can customise at any desired interval. If you have uploaded an image and created a personalised avatar, you can make them overlap (See Fig. 1) and make this as your avatar.
A signature is one of the numerous ways members can express themselves at 667 Dark Avenue. It is important that a member uses their signature to show something about themselves that makes them unique. For example, they may use a poem to express their creativity or a banner to show their drawing or internet related skills. A member may simply put a quote that they find interesting, a link to their webpage, or just some information about themselves. It is compulsory that if a member uses anything created by someone other than themselves that they get permission from said person. A member's signature is displayed below each post that the they make. If a member wins Member of the Month/Year or they win a Darkies Award then they will recieve a banner made by another member for the person who won to put in there signature.
Below each member's name there is an alliterated title with an accompanying row of stars. This is the rank of the member, which reflects the amount of posts made. Once a member makes a certain number of posts their title and their row of stars, automatically change. When a user reaches 6670 posts, an admin or a moderator will create a custom title (Of the members choice) for them. Below is a list of the ranks and the number of posts needed before their title can change.
