well, that's probably very easy, but I also have NO IDEA how to do it. Would you be so kind a explain in details. Sorry, if it sounds silly!

Are you asking how to sign up to photobucket? or how to put a picture on the forum?

the question was how to put a picture on the forum (instead of standard avatar)

oh, I see what you mean.

First of all you need an account at somewhere like photobucket or imageshak. I use photobucket myself, and it's simple enough to sign up, just go to www.photobucket.com :)
When you've uploaded photos into somewhere like that, then come to the forum and to include a picture open your photo account in another window, select the picture you want, then highlight the link underneath it which says 'url'. Copy this, and then paste it into your post. The mods would encourage you to just post a link rather than the actual picture as it helps people with slow internet connections navigate the forum, however if you have a small picture you would like to include, simply highlight the link in your post and click on the 'Img' button under that 'subject' bar when you write a post, this should cause code to surround the link and show the picture up in your post.
Hope that makes sense, if not then don't worry about giving someone a shout!

You're welcome - like I said, shout if there's anything more me or another mod (or anyone else :lol: ) can do

If I'm correct then Photobucket already copies the link if you click on the piece where it says URL... :)
