Yeah I like the red ribbon too! It was much nicer to use. I also noticed you added more smileys Sphax :) I can be dead now. Well as soon as WYSIWYG smileys are fixed again. :D

One more thing... I don't know if it is a bug or not but the [img] bbcode doesn't allow image resizing. Before, you could add like [img=widthxheight] but now it doesn't work. Also I noticed that there are some bugs when adding the signature. I had like
property and it worked but it also left that same text under the image. So say I had my image (on my signature) and just below it there was a text "
[\center]". Also the preview of the post is kinda bugged. Once I click on the preview all the bbcode I have written just disappears and I need to retype it again. Hopefully these can be fixed. Also loving the new smileys (having more is superb). BTW when I click on the smiley on the post it shows a blank image instead of smiley. Many "little" bugs but better than before! :)

I added some few things to the forum today:
- Minecraft name in user profile
- Twitter account in user profile
- Facebook account in user profile
- Default Avatar is the head of your Minecraft Skin (if you entered your Minecraft name in your user profile). If you want to use this avatar, delete your current avatar in your user profile.
- Migrated the Avatars gallery (most of the PureBDcraft Mobs are there)
- Small tweaks in the topics display pages

;)

Few new things to the forum:
- Bug with smilies in the WYSIWYG editor is now fixed (try it and let me know if everything is ok)
- New default avatar for users without avatar and without Minecraft name
- Better history in Private Messages interface
- Small reorganization for PureBDcraft forums (it now has the "General Discussion" like all other texturepacks)

About the image resizing, I don't know if I'll add its support... Images should be in the correct size before uploading and should not be resized via HTML... ;)
For the preview, I'll have a look at this.

The thing with the image sizing allows a high res image be put in a spoiler and while on the page it is a bit pixelated, when you click view image you can get the full picture. With a resized image, it may look good on the forum but as soon as you try looking at it closely, the detail is gone.
It can be worked around by using a gallery or similar but I like picture embedding. :-/

I'll have a look at this but this is maybe a bit too much work for what it is really. I mean, you can already embed images in the forum and their size is automatically reduced if too big to prevent bad overflow on the whole forum. ;)
