Avatars:

1) Added a new "Alien" avatar to the Horror Movie Avatars. It's slightly bigger than the rest of the defaults.

2) This makes each avatar category contain 16 avatars each. Check the User CP/ Edit Avatar section for details.

3) Shortened the per page column for avatar viewing to 4, instead of 5. Default number per page for avatars is now 8, instead of 10.

4) Also added a separate avatar category, Famous Personalities. Choices are (from) Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Vincent Price, HP Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, Mary Shelley, Bram Stoker, Barbara Steele, Sir Alfred Hitchcock, Sir Christopher Lee, Sir Peter Cushing, Anthony Perkins, Clive Barker, Stephen King, Bruce Campbell & Ingrid Pitt. Can only be accessed by members who have 50 posts or more (HDCian ranks).

5) Will add more avatars in the coming days.


EDIT: Please welcome our two *NEW* contributors - Chronogrl and roshiq!

Major tweaks:

1) The Horror.com Lobby has been moved down (General Forum, New Member Lounge, Announcements, Suggestions/Questions & Compilations/Pastimes). As a horror-based forum, we should be concentrating more on discussing all things horror than chatting about general stuff. Hence this major change.

2) The Horror Movie Discussion will be the top section from now on, followed by the Horror, But Not Movies section. This will help everyone - old and new members alike - to concentrate on horror stuff more.

3) Major tweaking to the Horror, But Not Movies section. The Music section moves upwards, just below TV Shows, followed by Books, Horror Fiction Post, Comics, Horror Art, Games (in that order), and the rest as earlier.


Feedback on this is most welcome. If the majority find this change uncomfortable, we shall revert back to the earlier design.

A very important feature added.

Let's say, for example, you want to add this image to your post in any thread (http://www.unleashthefanboy.com/wp-c...3/02/Alien.jpg). As you can see (by clicking on the link), the image is too big (1680 x 1050) and will go beyond the normal/original boundaries of the thread.

This problem keeps happening in many threads and is often a cause of annoyance + delay in loading the pages. Like this picture of Mandela posted by Despare in the R.I.P. thread - http://www.horror.com/forum/showpost...&postcount=126

I have devised a solution to this problem by successfully creating a new BBCode (like the youtube bbcode which we have been using so successfully in recent times).

All you got to do, is use the [TIMG] BBCode, instead of the [IMG] code.

As you all know, the IMG codes insert images, and now this TIMG code will insert a fully-clickable thumbnail. The image's preview will show in your post, and it will be clickable to everyone who wants to check out the picture in it's original dimensions.

For example, TIMG Image URL /TIMG (using []s)

will convert the above Alien picture into

Thumb resize.

What's more, you can click on it as well!
