I have no idea what board to put this under, so it'll stay here until I get an answer from the team.

I've seen a lot of people asking how to add images as profile pictures and signatures.  Understanding how BBCode on this forum works would help you, especially for signatures if you want to make a more complex one, with an image and text.  You can play around with the BBCode and see what it does with the buttons above your text box when you make a forum post, reply, or Private Message and hitting the "preview" button below.

For adding images to your profile and signature:

First thing you gotta do is find the picture(s) you want to use for your avatar or signature.  If they are not hosted on the internet you need to upload them somewhere(I use www.imgur.com).  You need the link to the picture itself(Usually by right clicking a picture and clicking "View Image" and copying the address in your address bar, or "Copy Image Location".  With my avatar as an example that would get you a link similar to http://i.imgur.com/HyfLPoc.png.  Note, it needs to have an extension at the end, like this one has .png.  Extensions like .jpg,.gif and .bmp work as well, but .png tends to be better quality.  If the image does not have an extension in the address bar, right click the picture and select either "view image" or "open image in new tab" or "copy image location/address".

Once you have the pictures, go to your profile ->forum profile at the top of the screen.

For your avatar, select "Specify avatar from Url" and paste the link to your picture there.

For signatures, you use BBCode.  All you'd need to use for a picture is "img" tags.  You use them around your image link.  To center it like mine, use
Code: [Select]
[center] and [/center] at the start and end of your signature message.
Code: [Select]
[center][img]Image URL Goes Here.png[/img][/center]
Let me know if you have any questions, or something should be updated or better worded :).  Also, if you feel something should be added to this post also let me know here and I may add it. 

Off-Topic / Favourite quotes?
« on: 2016 Mar 09, 00:44:46 »
This maaaay or may not have anything to do with me coding a bot that generates quotes at random :P

Regardless, It's also a fun topic so it's a win-win.  It's simple.  Post your favourite quotes!  (If I like it i'll add it to my bot :P)

Team Biographies / Darcy
« on: 2015 Nov 11, 10:24:56 »
I think most everyone forgot these are here, in fact I was reminded last night about it, and I figured I'd make a biography myself!  Fun right?

So firstly, hello!  I'm Darcy, or I also go as LaptopBrony.  OR, you might even remember Pipkin, if you've been here long enough! Anyways, no, that's not actually my real name...yet.  Maybe in the future, hehe.  That was the easy part, now, what interesting things can I tell you about me...hmm?

Prior to college, I was a retail employee for 10 years, working in the meat department.  For 4 of those years as an assistant manager and 3 of those years as a manager, also working in other departments, such as cash office, cashier, receiving, tech support, even security.  Now, I am unemployed, trying to concentrate on school.  *shrug*

I am a Canadian college student, studying Computer Programming.  I'm actually writing this in my networking class.  Don't tell my professor!  I am hoping by the end of my 3 year program to enter software development, or, I can take a one year post-graduate program for game development.  I can't help but feel that watching LoE's development has helped to spark my interest in this field.  While I don't have any game projects under my belt yet, I am working on a couple programming project, like this one here.  Meet CoffeeBot...

I am also a digital artist, mainly specializing in MLP style artwork, however I have previously created Sonic fanart waaay back in the mid-late 2000s.  I have also dabbled in making pony plushies, developing my own pattern, however time restraints have limited making more than a couple at this point.  Now, time for a shameless plug!  http://laptopbrony.deviantart.com/

I joined the MLP fandom in October 2011, learning about the show through fan-made content such as PMVs, music and artworks.  Seeing the amazing works the fandom has created around the show, I watched the show to see what all the hype was about, instantly falling in love with the style and animation, reminding me of shows I used to watch in the '90s.  About nine months later, I decided to try my luck at making artworks of my own, finding interest in making cute ponies of my own, and finding it satisfying.

Now for the stuff you likely care about.

I joined LoE around the same time I started drawing, back in July 2012.  Back then I ran a different name (anyone remember LaptopCommandStation?  Please don't, I hate that name lol).  I discovered the game through EQD, coincidentally enough, that day being the first time I have ever been on that site.  I enjoyed the forum scene and decided to see if this was a fun forum to be on.  Well, it's 20152016 and i'm a moderator now, I guess it's alright ;)  I joined the moderation team almost exactly two years later, in July 2014.  I also try to help out when i'm not busy(which is almost never...) as a script and hopefully soon, unity implementer.  I'm hoping that helping with these departments, specifically using Unity, will help me work towards game development projects in the future...

So, that's about all I can think of.  I'm pretty boring, but thanks for reading this anyways :D

This is very trivial but i'll report it anyways

I just noticed if you are viewing the list of users online and try to jump to a thread they are posting in by clicking the link to the thread in the "action" section, you'll receive a 404 error.

The link DOES work if their action is "viewing the topic" but it 404s if they're "posting in topic"

This is because there is a "?" missing in the url between "php" and "topic"

To help minimize confusion and to try to keep the forum organized, please view this post for an explanation of the different boards and where to post for certain issues.  Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation!

Topics in this section of the forum are for issues relating to the website and this forum.
All topics that relate to the Legends of Equestria game outside bug reports should be posted in the Legends of Equestria Discussions

The only ideas and suggestions posted should be to improve the website and the forum.
The Legends of Equestria team is not taking suggestions for the game at this time.

Before submitting a bug go through the following steps:
  • Browse the forum and help desk to make sure the bug has not already been posted.
  • Clear the web browser's temporary files or cache and restart the browser to see if the bug persists.
  • Provide enough information such as the operating system, browser version, what was happening or what caused the issue to occur.
  • Be as specific as possible.
Note: It's recommended to have the computer up to date in terms of drivers, software, operating system patches, browsers, anti-virus, anti-malware and so on.

A few notes on the Legends of Equestria Character Creator
  • The required Web Player can be found here
  • It is only supported on Microsoft Windows and OSX.  It is not supported under Linux (Linux comes in many different flavors such as Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, Mint and so on).
  • The exported pony code may or may not work with the LoE game.
  • It is possible to run the Character Creator on hardware that is unsupported for the game.
  • If the advertisement on the page covers up the Character Creator it is recommended to change the creator to full-screen by right clicking and selecting Full Screen.

ALSO NOTE!-The Character Creator will not work on Google Chrome or other Chromium-based web browsers.  Google has deprecated NPAPI support, which the Unity Web Player requires to run.  At this time, most other browsers do still support NPAPI, so please try a browser like Firefox or Internet Explorer to use the Character Creator.  This is not something we are able to fix.  We apologize for the inconvenience.

A few notes about the forum.
  • Avatars/Profile pictures are not stored on the server.  To use them the image needs to be uploaded to a site (like imgur) and linked via Forum Profile options (should drop down if the mouse is hovered over Profile).
  • AT&T does not accept our emails.  Also it is possible from time to time where emails from the forum may take a long amount of time to be received.  In the case of a stress test it's highly recommended to get everything settled before the day the stress test begins.
  • The rules are located here.
A few examples of what should not be posted here.
  • Discussions, bugs, glitches and technical issues about Legends of Equestria.
  • Not being able to log into Legends of Equestria.
  • Anything that belongs in a more appropriate section of the forum (such as help for things outside LoE).

« on: 2014 Jul 29, 01:26:28 »
So myself and a few friends for fun have been doing fanfiction readings.  We aren't really professional per-se, as you can tell by our intro, but it's fun to do, and I want to start posting them here :)
It also gives us excuses to play around with our different voices!  So, enjoy!

Note-All fanfictions posted here will comply with the forum rules, don't worry X3
