Yes I know its not *exactly* within the width/height spec in the rules (only 21k in size though!) Its just that the 152H is my current fave and could only find this pic thats half decent.... Someone else uses the 152C so I thought I'd balance things with a Pic of the H
Having its compas swung at Cottbus in 1944.

Damn! - just read the terms and conditions again.... no swastikas - which means I cant use this. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Not trying to be in ya face or start a flame war (or offend anyone) - was curious what everyone thought, whether it is was/reasonable or not. Rules is rues and I'll abide by them. The swastika debate has been done to death and I *don't* want to start it up again,

Mods, or anyone else ?

cheers

If you don't have photoshop then you can just use MS paint, that's what I do. Just find someone who can host the pic for you.

When it comes to aircombat, I'd rather be lucky than good any day!

DOH! Photoshop, should have thought of that (an I've got CS too... Tsh Tsk). Have now De-nazified my beloved 152.

Robban - LOL! ok ok http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Thanks. Picked the 3rd from bottom of yours (was the same as the one I had - compass swinging, looks meaner http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif) and have resized/cropped as appropriate. Now all I have to do is find some webspace or find some kind soul who'll host it for me.....http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks guys, although I really should have thought of it..... : Oops : http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

Thanks Have sent two(!) cheeky I know but I cant make my mind up which one looks better. the first one is within the forum specified dimensions - 308x132 (ok I am 8 pixels over...) and the 2nd one is a bit bigger, both are +- 30k.

Hope you dont mind....

Many thanks

I just grepped the terms of use,
http://www.ubi.com/US/Info/TermsOfUse.htm
for "swastika" and "nazi" and there was no mention.

The closest I found was,
<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>RULES OF CONDUCT
... (do not) ....
Post content or send Communications of any form impugning someone's race, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, political beliefs, or ethnic heritage.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

However, any forced censorship of swastikas is offensive to Native Americans, Finns, Tibetans, etc.

Keep the damn swastika. Editing historic photos is absurd.

On a slightly different subject, I am having a full on stupidity attack.

I have included the line



in the signature box of my profile but it somply displays the html when I post. Any idea why it isn't displaying correctly ?

Obviously, in the above line I have substituted [] for &lt;&gt; to get the line to display. I have also searched the forum but no joy [img]http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Moo.Cow

most free sites don't allow linking of jpg/gif so the extension must be changed to txt.
Will try changing your script and see what happens.


<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">http://mysite.freeserve.com/ilsigs/Spitfire.jpg</pre>

should produce this

Thanks Steve.

For some reasons though I still can't get the image to display correctly so will leave it for a bit. It's kind of annoying too as I have a broadband account with freeserve but still only have access to the free web hosting.

Cheers anyway for the advice http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I left the correct script as it is appearing in my post. Copy/paste in the sig dialog box of your profile. Should be a go.

Cosmo - I too kind of agree about the editing of historical photos (who it is offensive to to NOT include swastikas is open to debate... and I dont want to be drawn on this)

BUT I found the following in the Rues of conduct for THIS forum - posted in GD -

As it is, I am erring on the side of caution, rules are rules. I don't want this to degenerate into a pro/anti "Historical Markings" thread - we've had enough already. Personally I don't have a problem with them on aircraft, but I am sensible enough to realise that others might (the Ideology they represented In Germany both before and during the 1939 - 1945 conflict is however another matter entirely) and therefore, as I have said I would like to err on the side of caution. As it is I reckon the pic actually looks better without the dirty great mark on the tail anyways.

Just my 2p's worth

Nice sig btw! If I could run perfect I'd make my own, unfortunately I can't (saving pennies for a 9800 pro as we speak!)

asm016, understood. I didn't know there were separate additional regulations just for this forum. How very fascist of Ubi. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif

Anyway, I like those photos! The Ta 152 is a cool airplane.

Didn't mean to sound as if I was jumping on you, wasn't intended. Just stating my particular position....and erring on the side of caution but better safe than sorry.

Yeah the TA 152 is a cool aeroplane - esp when you get something in its gunsights http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/icon_twisted.gif big or small, doesn't matter, line it up, fire and it wont be there much longer! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/784.gif

Of the two, I actually prefer the H over the C in terms of looks (longer wingspan maybe, not sure) not much in it I agree,and she she aint no Spit thats for sure, but still... Or maybe it is just that I have not seen a decent pic of the C variant. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

On this note I gotta sign off for now and go to bed (clocks changing at 2am here in the uk and we lose an hour http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif )so I better move if I want some sleep.
