WTF is up with sig piccys?


The sigs now work of HTML, rather than PHPBB code... Personally I dont see the point, but hey, it's not my site.

>Profile
->Edit
-->in the box for the sig code:

Code: Select all
<img src="*image address*" border="0" >


That should do it.

I have no idea how to do quotes, and have forgotten the code for links.

I can't even get into my profile yet, but I can wait - I'd be more worried about not accessing my PMs!

Tis' a shame though as I think I need to have more of an evil sig now that I have a stack of Decepticons overunning poor Optimus, Jetfire and Hoist...

Considering the news about new UK legislation on replica firearms makes it very unlikely that I'll get my wants - TFC Megatron and MP Megs.

MP comes out in March, so there is still time, and there are TFC Megs kicking around now for a price...

Y'know, Ryan's not particularly impressed by his 2-million-or-so post forum disappearing either. But we're doing what we can and making the best of it.


What I'd like to know is, what happened to all the back-ups that were meant to protect against exactly this sort of thing happening?

Anyway, anyone who want's to come out to play, clicky here.

Unlikely to be much use to anybody, but I thought I'd drop a note that Asda / WalMart are currently selling off their Cyb Voyagers at £9.98, reduced from the Rollback price of £16. Mind you, my local - which is apparently the biggest Asda in Europe - only has C-Soundwave and Nemesis Breaker, which they've had a shelf full of for months. I picked up a lion since I'd been waiting for the price to come down anyway.

Local TRU has... one Classics Jetfire, plus one or two of the Giant Planet cement mixer, whatever he's called (keep calling him Quickmix without any idea whether it's right or not), and a load of the Energon Micromaster Constructicons. I think I've counted three new boxes on the shelf since before Christmas.

Reading TRU has Classics Jetfire too,
Picked him up and have to say that he's amazing!!

TRU also had some of the Classics re-paints of the LoC minis,
Might have to be getting some of them soon...

What's annoying is that they ALWAYS seem to wait until I have the toy before bothering to stock it... grrr.

I could really do with a local TrU.
