Was considering donating a little bit too the forum, anyway. PC email address would be pretty shnazzy. All I want to do is change 'of Pallet Town' to 'VI'. I guess I can wait the few months. Thanks for your help Hika.

You'll know when you're allowed to change your name because there will be an unlocked thread stickied in this section about it.
Awesome, January is my birthday month too so it'll be an extra special name change. <3

Since you're a new member and all, you can do 1 of two things: create a brand new account with your desired name, or donate to Crystal Tier status ($25+).

    Hi, can anyone help me out with creating a GIF avatar? I'm just totally stuck. It keeps saying invalid file or file too large when I try to link to it but its only 5 seconds long. Does anyone know how I can get it to work? Its hosted here if it makes any difference? http://makeagif.com/ql6ZIv

    The reason your gif isn't showing up is because PC doesn't support external hosting of avatars. Also, the avatar itself is well beyond the limits available to you, since your avatar limit is only 130x130px. Any size larger, and PC would resize the image automatically and take away the animation. Unfortunately, the only way for the animation to be left in tact on the gif would be to resize it so that it's within the given limits for you.

      I...have no idea how to do that lol How do others manage it then because there is no option for uploading one, only for a link? Or maybe I'm misunderstanding what external hosting means?

      Externally hosted means it's not hosted on PC's server, but rather just the link that the image originates from. If you want to use either of these, I resized them so that they would fit.

      Aren't site's like, Imgur, "external hosts" to PC though? Just asking cause I use Imgur all the time for my avatars and it works just fine.

      Yes, those are. However, once you link the avatar to PC, what you see set as your avatar is hosted on PC.

      Gotcha. I don't think that's the issue though with GIF avatars. I think it's more, like you said, the fact that it downsizes the GIF to fit your username rank set dimensions and thus breaks the GIF in the process. I don't believe it really has anything to do with the external site hosting (although what the heck do I know haha.)

          Does anybody know why this is happening? It's only happening in one browser (Opera 21) but I can't find a way to fix it.

          I don't want to have to use another browser but if there's not a fix then I guess I will have to

          Have you tried changing styles with our Style Selector and seeing if the problem goes away? If it doesn't, then unfortunately the only other solution is to change browsers I'm afraid. :/

          Each browser handles CSS code differently, and there could be something in that CSS that's incompatible with how Opera handles CSS.

            Tried a few other styles, and it doesn't work, so it must just be Opera 21. It works with normal Opera though, so I'll use that. :p Thanks!

            I checked the community rules but I'm just wondering why the age restriction for users is 13 years of age?

            Because of the COPPA law. You can read more about it at www.coppa.org.

                  You would post a ROM Hack in the ROM Hack section. Probably in the Hacks Studio if you want to show people your hack.

                  As in posting your finished hacks? Those go in the Hack Studio in the ROM Hacking boards, or if it's still in production it goes in Progressive Hacks. If you need any assistance regarding the ROM Hacking board you can also contact any of the board's resident mods: karatekid552, DrFuji, hashtag or Christos.

                    15 posts is just so you can post links. And it's like that for a reason. The ROM Hack section does have all new threads undergo moderator inspection before being visible to the public btw.

                    Also, don't just spam posts to get a 15 post post count.

                    What do you put in the claims section of your profile?

                      In various sections, there are "claim threads" where you can claim Pokemon/video games/video game characters/others that I might have missed. We added the sections on the member profile for people to list their claims instead of having them all listed in a signature.
