    @Avro Arrow I made something for the contest. Not sure how to submit or if this is the right format. [​IMG]

    Hi @bunny_hopps76 , and welcome to TrekBBS! That is an interesting (and delicious-looking!) image! Unfortunately, as a new member, you are currently unable to post images. (It is an anti-spam measure.) However, we should be able to come up with a workaround for that. But the other issue is that the image is a bit too big. As @Orac mentioned in the original post, entries should be a maximum of 200 x 200, so you may need to reframe/crop a little.

    The other thing I'm not too sure about is whether Instagram allows third-party hosting. Normally, we need a link directly to the image itself for it to show up in a post, whereas for Instagram I think you generally link to the hosting page. Do you have an account at Imgur, or other image-hosting service? Once you resize your image, if you save it to someplace like Imgur, then post the image here, if one of us quotes your post, it should then show up for all to see!

    I hope this helps! Let us know if you have any other questions about this.

    Thank you your response. The link should take people directly to the image and not the page. Perhaps that is not the case outside of social media. Other than email, I have no idea how to send images. I guess my Red Angel meat loaf will go unseen by other Star Trek fans.

    Thank you! This is my bacon wrapped Red Angel meatloaf. The Angel is made out of baked Brie cheese and caramelized onions. I would eat this in the mess hall any day

    Hah, I thought this would be about a gaming avatar rather than a signature image!:rommie:

    You may count yourself lucky, dear friends, to be able to avoid my Pet Theory about creating TREK avatars for just about any sort of gaming experience.
