    Welcome to the Aigburth Arms - the brand new off-topic section of the Red Dwarf forum!

    [​IMG]

    (Hmm, I wonder if I should head down there and ask them to update the dates on that plaque...?)

    Those of you who were regulars in the old Garbage Pod will know the drill - this is for all your non-Dwarf-related natterings, games, and any other nonsense you want to share. We felt that with the launch of a new forum, however, we should leave behind the sprawling nature of the original section in favour of a fresh start - which will hopefully be more encouraging for new users to pop in and say hello in alongside all the familiar old faces.

    And to signify this new start, we've given the section a new name, to reflect the friendly and convivial atmosphere we're hoping will prevail!

    Have a good time, remember the forum rules, and above all - be nice!

    I see we're got some new smilies. I think I can already tell which ones Ant E will constantly be overusing.

    Wow - I love it already! It'll take a bit of getting used to though, there seem to be a lot of new features. The forum rankings are a great idea, guessing they're based on the number of posts? Is there a list showing these anywhere?

    Anyway, great job and thanks everyone involved :-)

    One thing I noticed. There doesnt seem to be a size limit on posting photos. On the old forum it warned me when it was too big. I was about to post a picture before and it was well over 3000 px big and it didnt look like it was going to stop me. Just in case this needs fixed to stop gigantic pics popping up. I had to make the pic smaller myself

    I think we've experienced this period of time before.

    For uploaded images (attachments) there's a setting to automatically resize images.

    For images being posted (in IMG tags) a large image isn't usually too much hassle. It will appear smaller in a post as the image won't be wider than the page. Although you can click on large images to expand them.

    Oh neat. I didn't think it would be as fancy as that. I was worried I would just make a gigantic photo that would annoy everyone.
