Here you can find answers to questions about how the board works. Use the links or search box below to find your way around.
Signatures may be made up of an image, text, or a combination of an image and text.
If your signature is an image then your image must be no greater than 80 pixels high and 800 pixels wide.
If your signature is an image and text, then your image and text combined must be no greater than 80 pixels high when viewed at 1024x768 monitor resolution. The image forming part of your image & text must still be no greater than 800 pixels wide.
The below image demonstrates this maximum size:
The image file size must be no larger than 60 kilobytes.
Only one image file may be used. If more than one image is required for your signature then you must create a montage so that you only have one image file in total.
As a guide, if your signature is text only, four rows of text in Verdana Size 3 (the default font), five rows in Verdana Size 2, and seven rows in Verdana Size 1 are the equivalent of 80 pixels high.
Images must not be animated.
Links in signatures are permitted to a maximum of four unique pages or sites. Such links may only be to ‘safe for work’ material. Linked sites may be commercial in nature. You may not include links which suggest you offer official support or software. You may not link to warez, porn, political, racist or other similar hate sites. Links are included in signature size limits as detailed above.
Avoid offensive or inflammatory imagery or phrasing for signatures. Signatures should be as small as possible and tasteful.
Users who abuse these rules will be warned, and/or have their signature edited by us, and/or have their rights to use signatures revoked without notice.
PSB Staff and Section Moderators may have larger signatures that fall outside of these rules for the promotion of certain Forum events or related products as required by them where they consider it to be in the best interest of the contuned promotion of the Forum.
Here is some info on choosing a PSB user name.
When you join PSB you obviously need a "net name"
A lot of people will choose their bike name or something similar.
There are now a lot of ppl on the forum.
We tend to meet and click (or not) on the web first.
Therefore your "net name" will be the one that people remember most.
It gets hard when you go to a meet and someone says ie
"Hi i'm 95ZX9R, but my name is Dave"
All well and good.
But when you meet 10, 20 or 30 new people on some days its hard to now remember the persons 2 names - 95ZX9R / Dave.
So when choosing your PSB name, make it something that is memorable and easy to say, both on and off the web.
My name aint Dubs, but it suits me and i prefer to be called it both on and off the web (oh and CAD's momma).
Rooster's name aint rooster but he dont mind it, same goes for Klink, et al.
If you are a well known, established forum user, with a sizable post count, we ask you to think twice about changing your name. People would have already got to know you, and it can take some time for the change to be well recognised in the forum.
If you are one of those people who first registered a name like ‘MikesCBR1000’ and you now ride a Ducati, or if you just want to change so bad that you will hold your breath till your face turns blue, then click the USERCP link in the menu, and down the bottom in the My Smilies box is a ‘Request Username’ link. Enter your requested name in here and click submit.
Please allow up to 30 days for the request to be processed
Ok so, too many people are fucking it up royally. It's probably the easiest thing you'll ever do, so here's how.
You're on youtube, watchin a great video.. you think to yourself "OH SNAPPLE I'm gonna show this brilliant shit to everyone on perthstreetbikes dot comnet! EL O EL!! "
Step 1. - go to your browser's "Address" bar..
Step 2. Copy the URL (it will look like http://www.youbooble.com/someshit=123lotsanumbers )
Step 3. Start a new post on PSB and paste the url.
Step 4. Submit new thread.
DON'T - I repeat DON'T fuck with youtube's random 'embedding code'.. the PSB forum software will auto-embed your piece of cinematic brilliance all by itself! ZED OHMYGOD
Thankyou for your time
Davey (Registered PSB User)EDIT: This same process now works with links posted from the following sources: You Tube, MySpace, Google, BoltConverts, iFilmConverts, Meta Cafe, Yahoo, Daily Motion, Amazon, Carpix TV, Clipfish, Photobucket Video, ClipShack, CollegeHumor, BrightCove, AtomFilms, & Break Videos.
If you are a female and would like to get access to the Girls Only Area, do this:
1) Click on the “Settings” link at the top right of the screen.
2) In the "My Account" box on the left there will be a link to “Permission Groups”, click that.
3) If you are a chick then click ‘Join Group’ checkbox, and then click the ‘Join Group’ button.
4) Put in the reason why (IE: you’re a chick), then click submit.
Some time within 24 hours (ish) your application will be approved or declined by one of the usergroup leaders. As a matter of policy they only allow access to those people that they know to be female by meeting them in person, so best get out there and meet the girls prior to applying.
So if they already know you to be female it should be a fast process. If they don’t know you to be female then they will invite you (privately) to attend the next PSB girl get together so that they can meet and greet you.
If you are a guy, please don’t waste their time and try to join or you will be banned and I will also call you nordy names.
