Transparent color

There's no support for .png graphics on this board. Transparent color is black. Just check my avatar, it doesn't look nice >:(

Upload it to http://www.imageshack.us/ (< 90x90) and use that link as the option: "I have my own pic:" instead of uploading it to the board.

you could always just change the color of your picture.

Funny, mine's PNG and transparent. Perhaps you don't know how to do a proper transparent PNG file?

Here's why it didn't work:

Your image was too big.  The maximum allowed size is 90x90 or 100x100 (hell if I know, I'm only an admin).

These forums have this nifty feature where if someone posts an avatar that is too big, it'll download it, resize it, and store it on the server.  In that process, it loses the transparency information.

You will be fine if you resize the image yourself.  The information is only lost when you try using an image that is too big

nah, no need to lock.  I'm trying out a new approach to adminning/moderating the forums, and that is:

if I don't go around locking everything, people won't spam.  If I do start locking everything once the solution is found, they'll assume they can post crap in any unlocked threads.

Therefore I'm leaving solved threads like this unlocked, with the idealistic thought that people will be mature and realize that they should not spam
