I have a question or two that I can't find answers for by scratching through the site, mabe I'm just not seeing it?:LOL:
1: Why is the name 'bait pony' written under my name? Does it have something to do with how long you have been a member?
2: When someone has a sales page running for example, why do they write 'bump' in later comments, what does it mean?
3: I loaded a signature, and checked that the megs were low enough, but it doesn't show, just a url?
Help please:sadpony:

Hey there :)

I think I might be able to answere some of your questions.

1. The term "Bait Pony" under your name is basicly just a fun little thing that changes with the amount of posts you've made. I don't know how many posts are required for the upgrades, but say you hit 100 posts and it will change to something else and so forth.

2. When a reply is made to a topic it gets bumped up to the top of the page again. People who sell usually want to keep their topic as high up as possible so that more people will notice it. When it gets too far down or to the second page they simply make a reply Writing "bump" to bump it back to the top again :)

3. I have no clue XD I'm actually really terrible at computers, but I'm sure someone else can answere that one for you :)

Hope that helps!

It's just a silly little system we have that changes with the more posts you make. At a certain number of posts, you can change that title to be whatever you'd like.

2: When someone has a sales page running for example, why do they write 'bump' in later comments, what does it mean?
Desert_Rose's explanation is perfect :)

Is this the image you're trying to use?

That's actually too big to be a signature, so if you resize it and reupload it, I can walk you through how to apply it. Just make sure it fits within all the specifications, including pixel size:

Visual Help:

Signature images must fit within this blue box. It's file size must not exceed 50kb.


Also I'll move this to the help forum for you :winkpony:

Sorry about the signature:shockpony: I actually read all the rules before trying and thought, if the bytes were small enough it would be ok. I will delete curent pic and re-size, pixels and all and if I'm still stuck I will ask advice again:winkpony:
Thanx again, stars the both of you!:smilepony:
