    Lightbulb The Ultimate TESTING Posts/Sigs/Etc. Thread!

    Hey, folks!

    Please use this thread for any and all test posts.


    • Are you a newbie and want to see what your posts will look like?
    • Made a new sig and want to see what it looks like (without hunting for an existing post you've made)?
    • Not sure about how to use those fancy vBulletin tags -- like the [ spoiler] tag -- and want to try them out without looking dopey?
    This is the thread for you! We'll be closing the "Testing Ground" folder and consolidating all such posts here from now on.


    Note: Posts made in this thread, and anywhere in the Off-Topic folder, do not count toward your overall post count. Don't be surprised when your post count doesn't increment!

    As I understood it, the entire Testing Ground section will be gone soon.

    On that note, if one wishes to test something that requires they start the thread, I presume it's to be done in Off-Topic now?

    I think the dimensions are like 60 x 65, and up to 5K in size. You can only upload a custom avatar after you have 1800 or more posts. Once you do have 1800 posts, go to "My Controls" and select Edit Avatar, will you'll be able to upload your custom avatar.

    The maximum size of your custom image is 65 by 60 pixels or 7.8 KB (whichever is smaller).

    You need 1801 posts and then it takes a little while for the forum to notice and for the box to come up

    I can't think of any situation that should require a new thread to be started for testing purposes. But yes, in theory if it were necessary, it should go here in Off-Topic.

    Testing, well that didnt work
    Equality is not a concept. It's not something we should be striving for. It's a necessity. Equality is like gravity. We need it to stand on this earth as men and women. And the misogyny that is in every culture is not a true part of the human condition. It is life out of balance, and that imbalance is sucking something out of the soul of every man and woman who is confronted with it.
