That might vary with style. I use silver2 (I think it's called) and see dots for a lot of threads I'm not subscribed to. I assumed they were ones I'd posted to. The one I am subscribed to has a dot that sits a tad outside the shape (whatever that's called) compared to the other dots.

Yes, Kiwi Palm Fronds will suffice.

The check is rubber. We'll stretch it to make it bigger.

Baker: I think it depends on the theme. I have a dot for any post I have commented on/for/whatever.

I experimented by subscribing to topics but don't see anything different from an unsubscribed one.

I suppose the dot just means that you made a comment on this thread :)

Heya, admins. I'm having trouble updating my sig. The Control Panel software keeps complaining that the dimensions of this image in my sig can't be determined.

It works on all the other forums where I use it though (phpBB2 and 3), so I figure it must be this forum's settings that are wonky. Can you please fix things so that I can include it again?

It's probably a size problem, Kimi. That one being larger than the current limits. How big is it in px?

Currently it's 500px wide and 48px tall. Maximum height would be 88px.

Curious. The setting was for 500 x 90 px. I've enlarged it to 510 x 90 px. See if that works.
