Default Questions about the forum

1) When do I get access to the off topic section?

2) Is there a way to prevent email notifications from ever coming to me? I know I can unsubscribe to them but its really annoying having to do that for every new thread I post on.

Thanks!

10) Off-Topic Area is also a privilege.
It is not a right. You will gain access to this area at 40 posts just like your signature. This area has its own set of rules as well. Read up on them and get to know them before you enter so that you do not get into trouble upon gaining access.
Tech & Computer Forums - Announcements in Forum : New Member Introductions

You should have access now. It can take a bit for user privileges to update. If you log off and back on you should be updated.

2)

It's measured in pixels. Go to whatever image editing program you have and just type those numbers in. It's all you need. Width is obviously 300, and 100 would be the height.

Exactly. You get a total of 300 pixels wide by 100 pixels tall to play with.
