    Uploading Rules

    Uploads MUST be related to Alias and MUST be NON-huge files. If you would like an exception, please PM a team member or Charlie (founder of AllAlias.com).

    How do I upload?
    First, know where the file you want to upload is on your computer. Then, when replying or starting a new topic in a forum with uploading turned on (like this one), under the "enter your post" space is a "file attachments" space. Click "Browse" and navigate to your file, select it, and hit OK. Then submit your post.



    SIGNATURE RULES

    Animated sigs are to be no larger than 75 pixels high, 475 pixels wide.

    Still pic sigs (non-animated) may be no larger than 100 pixels high, 480 pixels wide

    Sigs that include an image can have 2 lines of text.

    Sigs that do NOT include images can have up to 7 lines of standard-sized text

    Sigs may include 1 image up to the pixel limits and 1 smilies OR 1 more image in the form of a smilie (transparent background, 19x19 pixels.)

    Sigs are NOT to contain spoilers!

    Signature rules WILL be enforced. If your signature is currently breaking the rules, please change it.

    Signatures in violation may be edited without warning. A "Signature in violation" message may be added to your signature. You can remove the message as soon as you edit your signature to comply with the rules.



    An example of an incorrect signature:
    Code:
    Line1
    
    Line 3
    
    Line 5
    
    Line 7
    
    Line 9
    
    Line 11
    
    Line 13
    Lines of blank space count towards the total number of lines.



    Another incorrect example:
    The maximum is 7 lines of normal sized text.



    Correct Signature:
    Code:
    Line 1
    Line 2
    Line 3
    Line 4
    Line 5 
    Line 6
    Line 7
    But, of course, you may have less than 7 lines of text. And if you have an image in your signature, then you may only have 2 lines of text.


    If these rules are not followed, signatures in violation will be delted without warning. It's suggested that just in case your signature is in violation and gets deleted, you should save your signature in your notepad (under My Controls).

    Thank you for cooperating. :)



    I think the rules are fair and quite generous, so please follow them. :)

    AVATAR RULES


    These rules are VERY simple:


    Animated av's (moving) are to be no bigger than 65x65 pizels, maybe smaller.
    Regular AV's (still image) are to be no bigger than 90x90 pixels (I think the board already edits av's to this if they are too big)
    Av's are not to contain spoilers



    If these rules are not followed, that person will be notified via PM, if not changed then, one of the admins will change it for you.


    Thanks :)

    PLEASE TAKE NOTE THAT SIGNATURE RULES HAVE CHANGED. THE MAX HEIGHT OF SIGNATURES NOW IS 100 INSTEAD OF 125. EVERYONE WHO'S SIGS ARE LARGER THAN THAT ARE NOW IN VIOLATION.

    You can only have 2 lines of text, but you currently have four.

    It was used in the now defunked (I believe) Alias: Interactive.

    When you signed up for a character, you were asked to include that in your sig

    So the people that are going to make my signature will know not to make one that is against the rules. Thx for telling me before it was too late. The person was going to make my signature but they didn't so it's good that this happened before I got my signature.

    If your signature is in violation, you also risk being put on probation without warning. This may sound harsh, but I am tired of editing and sending out warnings about signatures. Everyone should have seen this thread by now.
