I just had a question about loading images. There are a couple of ways to do it.
1) You can upload to your own user page. Once you are logged in, click on My Account > Album > Upload Picture at the very top of any page. Once there, you can select the permissions, etc. I have to create a link to the members page, where everyone can see everyone elses information. Apparently there is work being done on a plugin which will allow a “global gallery” where everyones images will be displayed. As soon as it is released / I find it, I will get it installed.
2) Another way to upload images is to attach it to a forum post. If you want to add a picture of your gin pole, or bent stanchion, just attach it on the New Topic / Reply page. I *believe* that this image will not be saved in your profile page, but only on the forum. I might be mistaken though.
