QuestionAnswer
How do I get my bike in the site gallery? You need to have a forum account, and be logged into the forum or the main site proper using your usual forum login and password.
Pictures need to be in the jpg format, and under 1000x1000 pixels in size (and theres no real need for larger than that surely?). The script with make up thumbnail versions and stuff after you upload them, so just put on the main pics you want. It will put the first one you pic as the highlight in the gallery page. You can have up to 9 pics on any one gallery entry.
Also, once you've hit submit, you should get a page saying that your entry has been added.
It WILL NOT BE IMMEDIATELY VISIBLE NOR SHOW UP IN THE GALLERY BROWSE LIST , instead the moderators will get a message saying youve uploaded the entry, and they have to go along and click approve or reject on the entry. This is purely to stop inappropriate stuff being uploaded (spam, hardcore donkey porn etc). Once we approve the entry, your gallery entry will be immediately in the list. Donkey porn will be stashed away to blackmail you with later on.

If you are a lucky peep, and have more than one bike you want to upload, just make multiple entries, one for each bike.

I want one of those funky avatars in the forum, how do I go about uploading my own? Go to the forum and click on your User control panel, then click on "Profile" underneath the heading "user control panel".
A greyed out menu will appear underneath with one of the options as "edit avatar". If you mouse over these, they will light up, and clicky when this option is lit.

This will take you a menu with a box with "Upload from your machine:" wrote on it.

Click on browse and select the avatar from your local machine, or enter the web address of a avatar you would like to use in the "Upload from a URL:" box.

Hit submit, voilla, all uploaded and attached to your profile.

Ive heard theres a map of oldskool owners somewhere but I can't see it? There is a owners map but you have to be a forum member to see it.
To view the map you have to be logged into the forum, whereupon a link will appear on the menubar that you can click to go to it.
