    Hey everyone,
    I'm relatively new to this site. I see on some of my posts it has a little eye icon to the right edge. I was wondering what this meant. I really like this site and would just like to have a litte more knowledge about it so I don't break any site rules.

    Thanks
    Willie

    Well if that's the case (don't see why it would be on my posts) it is only on there while I am logged in. why would it be on my posts?All my weapons are legal and sold in state. Sorry if this is a stupid question just trying to be informed.

    Actually, no idea what it is. I looked on a bunch of mine and didn't see anything. Maybe you can take a screen shot and post what it looks like.

    There is a feature to watch threads and forums, perhaps it might indicate that you have marked a thread to notify you when someone replies to a thread.

    That would make sense I guess.
    I've been trying to figure out how to post pics on this but I'm not getting anywhere. I'm not very tech savvy. Thanks for the insight I appreciate it.

    Too easy, set up an account on photobucket and put your pics there. Each pic will have its own http address that you can copy. To put a pic in a post, just select the picture icon and it will give you a place holder to paste the address of the pic you want to post. There may be other ways but that's how I do it. Good luck.

    I've never seen the eye. Watched thread makes sense.

    Posting pictures is easy if you have an account (free) on a photo hosting website. I use Photobucket. Once you have your pictures uploaded all you have to do is copy the IMG code link.

    If you hit the "reply" button to this post you will see the IMG code for the picture below:

    If I copy the URL of one of my pictures it looks like this: http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm35/elkins_pix/IMG_2354_zpsmckvpzfi.jpg

    When I just paste a URL it creates a link. To get it to display in your post you need to either manually insert the IMG tags or (easier) use the command button above your post that looks like a tiny landscape photo. That automatically adds the tags to your URL. All you have to do is paste it in. It's the one between the smiley face and the film strip.
