Re: Tutorials: Signature Questions and Help

Just a bit patience, please. It's really just kind to the members who couldn't read Deathly Hallows yet to wait a bit.

Also Deathly Hallows related signatures won't be allowed until the Spoiler free time period (two months) is over, even when signatures are back. This means a lot of more work for staff, what currently can't be done.

Re: Tutorials: Signature Questions and Help

Once the spoiler policy is lifted on the 6th, would it be warning worthy if our signatures/avatars quote Molly Weasley's infamous outburst?

Re: Tutorials: Signature Questions and Help

Are images still barred in signatures or something? Cause all I'm getting is links to pictures.

Re: Tutorials: Signature Questions and Help

I see the signature images as such, but you don't seem to be the only one who has this problem. I just got an owl asking the exact same thing.

Re: Tutorials: Signature Questions and Help

Hi,
Sorry if this is the wrong place but I'm having real trouble re-sizing the photo I want to use in my signature. The original size of it was around 500 by 500 and I found a few things online that re-size the photo, but for some reason, when I do re-size it, my computer still tells me it's about 475 by 340.

Does anyone know a program or something that will actually re-size it to what I specify?
Or, if I try to upload the photo here (in my signature bit) will it just tell me if the photo is too big or will I also get a warning thing?
I'm scared to try it because I'm not looking to break the rules! *lol*

While I'm here, I'll just check my quote is fine! *lol*
I'm going to write on the photo, 'Pyjama party is it?' - Moody said it in G.O.F but I might as well just check now that that isn't going to be considered 'rude'

Thanks.

When you upload the picture via the CoS system (Edit Signature - Upload Signature Picture) it will give you a warning message and tells you that it's too big. But you won't get automatically a warning point, if it's that what you mean.

To resize it, try right click on the picture and edit. Usually you'll find the resizing feature under "image".

Or you ask a friendly co-member to resize it for you.

Re: Tutorials: Signature Questions and Help

Thanks for the help and info. guys.

gertiekeddle - That was a bit confusing but I did go on a search from there for a resizing thing and I finally found one - and it worked! Well, it was smaller than I wanted but it'll do, it's below 300x300 so it's good enough!
So you led me in the right direction thanks!

Unfortunately you can't have one. It's a Hogsmedians only thing.
Look here for more info.

Re: Tutorials: Signature Questions and Help

This is not a technical question, but I don't know where else to post it. Sorry if it's not the right place.

The other day I was browsing the forum and came across someone's avatar or signature with a picture of Snape with Petunia with the caption "Vernon who?" - It made me laugh, but I didn't think to make a note of the username.

I've spent 20 minutes or so looking for it again today, going through as many of the threads that I'd looked at as possible but couldn't find it again. Either I didn't go to the right thread or the user changed his/her avatar or signature.

As Admins and Mods you must see them all. Can one of you please help me find the poster? I'd like to ask him/her where they found that picture, and if a piece of AU fan fic came with it. I'm writing some fan fic myself, where Lily lives, so a Severus/Petunia pairing, intriguing as it is, could fit right into my story.

Thanks so much!

P.S. If I'm on the wrong thread, pls send me an owl in response to this query. Thanks.

Re: Tutorials: Signature Questions and Help

I'm very much afraid that in lack of real magic we can't make the search engine to find pictures by key word. And if it's changed it's gone I believe.

Thanks, Alastor. I didn't think you could find it with a Search anyway, that would be real magic! But just in case the pix isn't gone (maybe it's still there and I missed it), if you and the other Admins and Mods who monitor the site regularly could just keep an idle eye out for it? You may well come across it, in which case you could let me know? It's not very important, and I'm not asking you to make an effort to look for it, but if by scrolling through threads that pix happened to catch your eye, it'd be helpful.

Thanks an awful lot.

If it will help, this is the pix I'm looking for:

I went through the list of avatars for you (advanced student list)and couldn't find that pic, so it's either been changed recently or it was in a sig..which dosen't really narrow things down, but now you know
