    So you fuckers wanted to know how to post images etc? Well you got it.

    First thing you need to do is kick yourself in the nuts if you don't have Windows Vista or Windows 7.

    If you don't, you'll have to take screenshots with alt+print screen (its a key on your keyboard ususally up in the top right)

    So to do this there will be 3 elements.
    1)The screenshot
    2)Hosting the screenshot
    3)Posting the screenshot

    First the screenshot
    As I mentioned, if you dont have Windows Vista or Windows 7, kick yourself in the nuts and use alt+printscreen to take screenshots. To do this just open up the browser window you want to take a screenshot of and hit the alt key then while its down hit printscreen then let go of both. This copies that image to your clipboard. Then all you do is open up mspaint and paste your screenshot in there. Just crop off the edges and save your screenshot, you're good to move on to step 2.

    Now if you don't have to kick yourself in the nuts, its a bit simpler. Hit start, in the little search bar type snipping tool. Click on it to open up and you'll see it open and theres a button called new in the top left. Once you have whatever you want to take a screenshot of up in your browser go back to snipping tool and hit new. Everything will sort of fade out and you'll have a little X cursor to make your selection with. Just click and drag a box around what you want to capture. Let go of your click to finish then click save and save your screenshot.

    Second the hosting of the screenshot
    You'll need to create an account on either photobucket or imageshack - they're both free. On each website, once you've created an account and logged in you should be able to click the upload button to upload your screenshot. Just click upload, select your screenshot and then let it do the upload. After its uploaded you should be able to click on the picture and somewhere on the page it will list the link to your image. What you're looking for is the direct link to you picture. Once you have the link you should literally be able to open a new browser window and type that in and it should take you to basically a blank page with nothing but your picture/screenshot on it.

    Third the posting of the screenshot
    All you need to do now is post your screnshoot. Take your link that you got from photobucket/imageshack and type this

    Thats it.
