So what is the trick to getting regular sized pictures on this forum? Every time I post a picture it gets resized to "Small gay" size. For example, here's my latest self-portrait:

300x300.jpg

As you can see, its size is not nearly large enough to do me justice and show all the beautiful details and handsome lines of my glorious head. Please instruct me on how to fix this tragedy. Thank you.

Use imageshack to host your pictures and then hit "share it" option. Copy the supplied URL, and it will be full size formatted for a forum.
Upload the picture to your Imageshack account. Go to your images, right click on image you want to share, left click"share it", another screen will pop up with image code(make sure full size image is checked in new pop up), highlight image code in box....right click to copy it, open forum, right click paste......done.

Let me know if you have problems and I can walk you through it.

PS. Imageshack account is free.

Well, that's a little better. The "Thumbnail for Forums (1)" does the trick okay; still a little small. I guess that will have to do as I can't be bothered with registering for Imageshack. Thanks!

P.S. Don't hate me cuz you ain't me.

Small images or thumbnails is because its an attachment. Done to reduce bandwidth and database storage space, IIRC. Has a direct effect page load speed. Full sized images are links to a remote host.

Gay ... well, there isn't anything wrong with that.
