    This guide should hopefully answer any questions that new (and old!) members often have. I’ll try to keep it as up-to-date as possible, and let me know if there’s anything else you want this guide to cover.

    Avatars
    In order to get your fancy avatar to appear, you need to sign up for a Gravatar account with the same email address you used to sign up for TSA. Upload or select your avatar, and it will automatically start appearing here on TSA. If you don’t see it at first, try clearing your cache and force reloading the page (Ctrl + F5).

    Signatures/Trophy Cards
    The new forums do not currently display your Trophy Cards as your signature like the old ones did – I will update this if it changes.

    Embedding Images From The Internet
    The easiest way to embed a picture is to click the “img” button in the forum toolbar and just paste in the image URL (make sure it ends with .jpg or .png etc). It will automatically adjust the picture’s size to the forum width.

    Embedding Images From Your Computer
    Firstly you’ll need to upload the picture to an image hosting website, such as imgur.com. You could then either just take the URL of your uploaded and use the “img” button again, or if you want an image that people can click on to see it full size (handy when posting screenshots etc.), then you’ll want to copy the code called “HTML Image (websites / blogs)”, shown here in red:

    Paste that into your post and that way it allows people to easily see it in full resolution if they wish. Other image hosting sites should have a similar thing if you want a clickable image, just look for the right code to use.

    Embedding a YouTube Video and Tweets
    If you want a YouTube video or Tweet embedded in your post, just paste in the URL of the full video or tweet into your post, so something like this (but without the space I put in):
    https://www. youtube.com/watch?v=i7yJQwRCE6o

    So there we have it! Hopefully someone will find this helpful and let me know if I’ve forgotten anything, or if something wasn’t quite clear enough.

    The leveling is gained by points. You gain points by posting in the forums and on the mainsite. They don’t do much at the moment, but in the past they have been the method for distributing prizes.

    Handy stuff. By the way, I also use this to check some things!?
