    I don't have any technical problems, but a suggestions rather if possible. When selecting an avatar, you can choose a file from your computer. But when choosing a signature picture, you have to use a URL, forcing you to upload your signature to a photo sharing site, just to use it. Why is this so, and if possible, can it be resolved? It's a bit of a hassle.

    Probably either a limitation of the board software and/or the fact that signatures are slightly larger than avatars in file size. Multiply that by the amount of members we have here and it would add to server load.

    Also, you signature was oversized.
    Please read the Signature Guidelines in future; http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/rules.php#sigs

    Yeah, when I uploaded it to flickr something went wrong, sorry. Was it the file size or the visual size?
