I was going to say that it's because they did the same hack that got the custom forum title - but I didn't look into it far enough to get it to go.

If you get an answer - shoot me an telegram and let me know - I don't mind keeping under the 6k image - but having it as large as I want would be a bonus.

If you use a GIF or a simple JPG then it will work.

The uploader is stupid and will not know if it is above 107 * 71 px as long as it is below 6 kb.

ummm...i'm a bit new can i posts pics specifically?

On the forum
Step 1: Get the pic onto a site (or, failing that, find the pic on the site where it is)
Step 2: Get the URL of the pic (right click on the image and look for its address)
Step 3: put in your post something of the form
Step 4: Admire your handiwork

As a flag
Step 1: Save the pic to your hard drive
Step 2: make certain it isn't too big as a file size
Step 3: In "Settings" at your nation page, put in a custom flag
Step 4 (I think): Browse your hard drive for the relevant picture
Step 5: Admire your handiwork

Non-regulation flag sizes - save your (large) flag as a low-res high-compression PNG, GIF or JPEG, making sure it is below 6KB. Upload it in the usual manner. You will find that as long as it is below 6KB, it will appear as its actual (large) size. Just don't go over the top - 300x200 is as large as people will tolerate, otherwise your nation title may end up split into two rows, etc.

Posting images - make sure the image is hosted on another server. Then link to it thus:


EDIT: Ah, he beat me to it!
