    What is the official ruling on linking to personal websites in our signatures? Bueno? No bueno?

    Yes, you can link to personal web sites as long as your personal web site is not advertising a product or service.

    How do I insert nice images from game in my posts?

    I use printscreen, get a jpg.file but when I insert there it is just this thumbnail in my post.

    You have to use the image attachment tool (the one next to the quote button) and give it the url of the attachment you uploaded.

    I assume you are using the "Manage Attachments" feature of the forums?

    If so, once you upload the .jpg, click on the link for the thumbnail and then place that link within the image tags and they will show full size in your post.

    If the images are really large, you should put them within spoiler tags because large images take a long time to load for some people.

    Good luck and have fun.

    actually, the spoiler tag doesn't stop large images loading, just them from being displayed.

    Ok, images working well on pc. However, my iPad does not show them. Just a tiny square. Why is it so?
    If you want to test, check out the Rendezvous with Cathy-thread, story&tales, civ4.

    Because iPads work differently.

    As far as I know, you cannot. The images have to be attached to something in the forum, loose the thumbs and you loose the image.

    upload the image to another imaging host and then include it in your posts (photobucket or imageshack or others).

    Who are we?

    We call (or used to call) ourselves CFC (Civilization Fanatics Center), so why does it now say Civilization Fanatics' Forums?
    I also see that the address is forums.civfanatics.com, has this changed?
    I still have the habit of referring to us as CFC, but perhaps CFF is more correct.

    The Sears Tower is now technically the Willis Tower, and yet no one has yet to find the time to develop a singular crap to give about it.

    Only if you're colorblind or Irish.

    Which reminds me, why aren't there more April Fool's skins?

    Is it possible to request a ban from a specific subforum than from CFC as a whole?

    Depends upon the forum. Some of them can have bans set up. If you wish to request one, please send a Private Message to a moderator for that forum.
