sig and forum questions?

Hello,
I have a few questions based on the fact i'm new here! i tried the search for these answers and had no luck. I was wondering what the icons on the left side mean when you open a forum like: the white boxes with flames and without etc etc? i was also wondering how some of you have pictures on the top left corner and some on the bottom of your post? I know rather well but the thingy says off when i go to edit? and it says (img) on? all i know is is that how you some of you are doing that? or what is the proper way to add pictures?
Thanks a Bunch !

Bob:

The file folders with flames mean a long, multiple response, popular thread. The pictures at the upper left under our names are called avatars - there is a discussion on them at Avatars are Great Fun!! . These 3 links from the FAQ section should be a good starting point on all your questions:

Bob:

It looks like you did it right, but that the link is one of those sites that doesn't allow outside links. The picture shows up as a small white box with a red X. If I load the address into my browser, the picture shows up fine, and also shows up on the MercedesShop post. So it isn't you, it is their linking policy.

Now, why does reading your reply reminded me of the Emperors' Clothes?
