Default 11. Be considerate of others when posting, both with text and images.

Be considerate of others when posting, both with text and images. Keep images of a reasonable size, and posts readable and not disruptive.

Keep your post length reasonable and easy to read. No one wants to read 100 lines of text with no paragraphs or punctuation.

Pay rudimentary attention to grammar and spelling.

Only use alternative fonts and colours judiciously. Adopting a different font and colour for all posts else makes the forum difficult to read.

Avatars should be 80x80 and 40KB. Animated avatars are ok, but nothing seizure inducing.

Signatures must be no larger than 400px wide by 150px tall. Some extra text is ok, but try to keep it about that high. Signature file sizes should be about 500KB. Animated signatures are ok, but keep it subtle.

Posted images should small enough to fit in the window without having to scroll and download is a reasonable time. Use the spoiler tag to hide larger images.

Host your own images where possible, and definitely host your own signature images. See the help forum for help in hosting your own images.
