    Don't know if I haven't been paying attention, or if it is new. Has anyone else noticed that when people are currently online, there is a little green corner on their avatar? Just an interesting observation.

    Don't see what you are talking about, so wouldn't know. My avatar, as of this very moment, is green free. However, when I submitted this reply, there is, indeed a green upper corner. Have no idea what it means, since I am assuming only I can see it.

    I think it means that whoever has that green connotation posted and is online - maybe it takes the place of what's at the bottom of the page that tells you what members are online?

    I've seen it for awhile. It does indeed tell you that the poster is currently active on the board.

    I wondered about that green corner. I also see that the word new is listed by the time it is posted.

    Hey now... Don't call me out like that :p Also 1096 unread emails!? I'm more concerned by that than anything... But what I meant was taking a screen shot with your phone and just uploading it directly. Is that possible? Because the inset image button only prompted for a URL.

    Sometimes that is a function of how long you have been a member and the number of messages you have racked up. I would think that if you attached it to an email, you would have the address you needed, even if you never sent it. And for what it is worth, a huge number of unread emails usually only means that you know who they are from and essentially what they want, and you just haven't deleted them yet, for what ever reason.

    Yes, I'm aware, on both of these accounts. An email attachment wouldn't provide a url that the forum software can convert. It looks for something like imgur.com/9742972.jpg which references a specific picture that's hosted on the internet that the software then displays.

    ^example (Which is a completely expected result, that image doesn't exist because I made it up)
    Also that many unread emails in an inbox would bug me, regardless of the reasoning behind them being unread.

    This is an example of an image I've actually uploaded to imgur.com, and provided the link to the forum software to display:

    IDK about the phone and pics on here. I rarely get on here using my phone.
