AVATAR and SIGNATURE RULES
1. Avatars should be 75x75 pixels ONLY, and appropriate for TeenTalk. You may now access the board’s avatar gallery through your Profile (go to Forum Profile Information), or read instructions on how to link from other sites below.
2. Signatures should be text ONLY, with a maximum height of 100 pixels. No images, as this slows down the board.
