    Just a couple of questions…

    I’ve had a couple of posts that went to moderation because I posted a link to an image. They never showed up, so are images not allowed? Granted they were screenshots from a UFC event.

    Also, is there a link to the various codes that are usable on this site? Like bolding, italicizing, and quoting? Are they standard BB codes? I’ve been hesitant to test them because I cannot edit posts afterwards.

    Thanks

    I just registered and it was easy. Just a few questions and thoughts:
    1. Will our gravatar still work?
    2. We will receive junk email from 5oz?
    3. Although I am not fond of having to register to post comments (problems on other sites), I hope if any issues arise, they are taken care in a timely manner.
    Thanks for the great site!!

    Well,
    i’m registered now..

    I really like the idea of this..
    It was kind of annoying that anyone could just come in and bash or troll..
    i don’t think anyone that wants to do that stuff will go through the trouble of making an account..

    and i was also getting tired of the posting errors i would get

    good move!

    CMT-

    1. Will our gravatar still work?
    Yes it will

    2. We will receive junk email from 5oz?
    Nope, no emails from us.

    3. Although I am not fond of having to register to post comments (problems on other sites), I hope if any issues arise, they are taken care in a timely manner.
    I understand this, and it one of the reasons we have held off as long as we could. The spam is really out of control, and this is really the only way to just stop it in it’s tracks and give registered members instant comment ability

    Thanks for the great site!!
    you are welcome

    Unfortunatley we can’t. While I’m sure you would refrain from posting images that are NSFW, or not able to be published by us, sadly some wouldn’t. We do our best to keep the site Safe for work, and allowing images in comments would really harm our ability to do so without constant moderation

    Also, is there a link to the various codes that are usable on this site? Like bolding, italicizing, and quoting? Are they standard BB codes? I’ve been hesitant to test them because I cannot edit posts afterwards.
    I’m using html to bold this message, try the BB code and let me know if you have any issues and I’ll fix your comment

    Thanks

    k, so BBCode is out. Feel free to delete my previous post. I know how to quote now, just not sure how to attribute a quote to a particular poster (within the quote itself), as I’ve seen done before on here.

    Thanks for the response.
