Why can't I post pictures, use links or upload an avatar?
In an attempt to limit the effectiveness of spam bots as well as negate the efforts of people who register to troll you will need to reach ten posts in order to gain the ability to post links, pictures and use avatars.

Within a few minutes of you reaching 10 posts you should be upgraded to the Filly user-group which will grant you the previously locked abilities.

If for whatever reason you do not get your user group upgrade then please PM an Administrator or Head Administrator and they will sort it out for you.
