Read the bit below, you get to this options screen by clicking this link
.Edit display options
Now here is a screen with options which people with dial-up or other slow internet connections can do something with! People on ADSL or other highspeed connections may find it a little less usefull.
The options:Display images within posts
Set to no, you will not see the photos posted in the topics. But it saves you an awful lot of loading time. Instead of a photo you see this: [ img ], which links to the photo. When clicked you do get to see the photo, so it is actually a very good option to use when reading for instance the tripreports.Display Flash animations
Set to no it will not show flash animations. However, as flash is not used on this site you will not notice any difference.Display smilies as images
Set to no smilies like
will display as a code only, in this case 8). This speeds up loading of pages.Display avatars
Set to no avatars will not display, speeding up the loading of pages.Enable word censoring
As abusive language is not allowed on the forums there should be no noticeable difference between the settings.Display topics / posts from previous days
I think these options explain themselves...
