This is a very stupid question, but are we allowed to upload images in our signature that are bigger that 95 pixels if we use the whole (img width=95 height=95)(/img) thingy?

Not an Admin but I can answer that from everything I've seen and understand about the rules as they are, yes. 95 pixels tall is the ideal limit on how tall your signature as a whole should be, this is in part to keep page load times down but largely to prevent particularly large signatures that would disrupt the look and flow of the page (Think  a signature as tall or in some cases taller than the actual post. I've actually seen this happen on some forums and when a lot of people do it it can become a hassle to read a page.) Furthermore, you can actually use a lot more than 95 pixels in width for your image. Meadow Whisper Suggests about 600pixels in width ideally but imposes an absolute hard cap of 800-900:

-snip-
For starters, total height should be about 100px (around 5 lines of text).  Please don't use signature images taller than that, and if you have a 100px tall image, avoid adding text lines below it unless absolutely necessary.

Width is pretty subjective, since it varies based on browser window size, and it doesn't really affect scrolling.  However, please keep signature images less than 600px wide.  Total signature width should never exceed 800-900px.

Do accounts with “broken” emails get banned? I don’t plan on doing it, just curious.

I'm not sure what you mean by a broken email...if you mean someone changing their email because they can't get into their old one then yes, the system (not admins) "bans" them until they re-activate their account. Otherwise, I'm not sure if the system will let you sign up with incomplete addresses, and we don't manually scan emails or anything, so the answer in those cases would be no.

I meant like, an invalid email. Probably should have worded that better.

Would a "nuke messages" button work on this forum? Like where all of them are instantly deleted?

Not an Admin but if you want to delete all the messages in your inbox you might try one of two methods:

1. If you want to delete absolutely every message in your inbox you might try the select all checkbox:

followed by pressing remove selected as you would normally.

2. If you want to delete select messages based on a chronological criteria you might try using the Prune messages feature which under search messages which will allow you delete to delete all messages older than the number of days you specify.

Possibly if there's enough demand for it ^^

I don't believe you can block admins, I'm not positive about mods but I suspect you can't block them either. I'd make it very hard for us to do our job if we couldn't contact you. I however fail to see a reason why you'd need to block one, we have strict policies ensuring our staff members are following the rules and regualtions and there's strict punishments if they break them. If you're having an issue with any staff member you're welcome to bring it up with an admin ^^

I don't have a reason why, I was just curious how something like that would -and if it could- work. ^.^

I have two questions ^^
First, whats the diffrence between a moderator, board moderator, and a sitewide moderator?
Also, I notice in some old Emotes, such as: :halehappy: :alexxgay: :varlen: theres a white background, may I fix that or should we just keep it how it is?

A board moderator only has powers to moderate specific boards (you'll see the current moderators listed under the boards (for example, General's moderators are  Kettle, Shia, and shutupavery), while a Sitewide moderator has moderation powers in all boards. This only refers to where they have moderation powers (editing/deleting posts, moving topics, etc.); every staff member, no matter the level, are expected to contribute in staff-related discussions. A moderator is just what board moderators are listed as everywhere else - So, Kettle is listed as a board moderator within General chat, and just a moderator everywhere else. I hope that makes sense, its kinda hard to explain ^^;

And I've actually never noticed the white backgrounds...you can fix them if you'd like  :fox-:):

Quick question! I no longer need access to the genderblender board. Is there any way I can be removed from the special access board?
