    Hello mods, admins. I've been wondering how to get a background image onto my profile.

    I did some Googling, which led me to
    this blog entry by Medusa. I followed everything outlined in the comments, but problems were still present as I did not see the icon for adding a background image. I then checked the User Profile FAQ, which says that all I needed to do was create an album and... there, I'd be able to accomplish what I've set out to do.

    However... that is not the case. Still couldn't add the image. So I checked the threads in this forum.
    :D This is what I found. All of a sudden I see implications that you have to be a supporter to have a BG image. @_@ This thread is the only thing that implies as much, so I'm thinking it was made before the FAQ was updated, or after? Something doesn't add up. So I thought I'd ask you guys (through PM), but then I thought maybe others are wondering the same thing, so I decided to make a thread instead.

    Getting a little TL;DR, sorry. I've always been long-winded. Anyway, can you guys clear this up for me?

    You need to be a Community Supporter.

      FFFFF. Thank you. Someone should definitely add that to the FAQ. It's quite misleading. :/
      My apologies if I missed that part.

      Yeah it should be added to the faq, I made a thread a couple of months ago about this too!

        I'm sorry for the somewhat late post, but I thought this was available to all members.
        Was it just recently that it only became available to community supporters?

          Nah.. some regular members still managed to pull off some awesome layouts with just colors, but the images have always been a supporter perk.

            So background images are only for supporters, then?
            I was sure they were available to members, too.
            My brain hurts now ;___;

              Well I guess.. if you've seen regular members with background images, maybe they used to be on staff, and just haven't changed their profiles layout. I can't think of any other way.. xD;

                All right then, thanks for clearing that up.

                The reason I was so confused is that I remember back in December or so,
                there was a button you could use in Customize Profile to add your picture as a background.
                I was always frustrated because stuff wouldn't load to my album.
                So yeah. I remember it being there @.@

                  Actually, wait, my bad.

                  No.. staff can't use background images either, unless they're a supporter too.

                  I dunno what you saw then.. o__o

                  You're right, that's confusing. XD; The reason is that most of the FAQ pages on PC came from vBulletin, the software we use here. A lot of it is written in a general "hey, all forums running this software use these features!" sort of way, but it doesn't account for the fact that we've changed a lot here on PC.

                  I edited the FAQ to be more clear. If you see any other discrepancies let an admin know and we'll fix it up.

                  Also, note to self/other admins, we should probably make the donation perks a bit more clear in the thread... >_>

                  EDIT: And for the record, staff can use backgrounds. Any perks that supporters get, staff also have. Exceptions being the VIP forum (though they can see it, unless they're supporters they aren't supposed to participate) and back when we had the name change system, the 3 month limit.

                      Guess I should go check that out.

                      I just double-checked the permissions for the mod usergroup, it should be fine. o_O;
