I can't do it myself, but you could always request an admin to do it.

I did, and it's now stickied!


I used to be very active on the forums, but now mostly just work on the Wiki.
Check out FutureBB 1.4, the latest and greatest forum system out there!

Computers make very fast, very accurate mistakes.

How do gifs work?
Is there a way to make a gif and add it to, say, my signature?
Thanks!

a GIF is a moving picture that you can either take from the internet or make. I've never made one but I now people who have/ I hear it's difficult to make a very high quality one. I know you can use things like GIMP and other programs to make them but thats all. If you want to get on off of the interent go to the google (or bing or whateves) bar and look up “(item) GIF” like if I wanted a cat GIF I would look up “Cat GIF” then go to images and find results. they won't move unless you click on it to see it. Then you need to right click and you will see “copy Image URL”. click on that and then paste it into the signature area with the tags:
[img]  and  [/img]
