Forum Help - Signature and Avatar Guidelines and Autoprune

Post by Fancy Rats Admin » Fri Nov 09, 2007 2:25 pm


  • Should be no more than 4 lines high (including any blank lines)
  • Should not contain any images/banners
  • Should not contain bold, or large type
  • Should only contain black type
  • Images should be limited to Emoticons/smilies only

  • Should be no wider than 120 pixels

The main thing with avatars is they shouldn't expand the width of the author column beyond its set width. Otherwise they can become a bit dominating and take up space which could be better used by the content of the post. By limiting the dimensions it also keeps the filesize at a reasonable level. The Avatar Control Panel can be found at the bottom of the My Profile page.

NB See this post for resizing advice.


Autoprune is a feature that automatically deletes threads that have not been posted to within a certain amount of days.

In this forum autoprune is set to 50 days.
