I have a couple of questions.
1) Why are the posts posting in reverse order?
2) How do you shrink the size of the picture that you embed onto a post?

1) I asked this very question a couple of weeks ago. Here is Riot's answer:

- I can answer that for you Tenchi. Now instead of scrolling all the way down and going to the last page to read someones reply, you can just go to the first page, without the hassel, and reply. It's easier to do thats why we have it that way.
Say you have about 3 pages of posting, instead of wasting your time having to scroll down and click over to the next page/pages, you can just click on your Roleplay and reply. Just a quick and more easier way of replying and such lol. Which yeah will probably take a little time to get used to but i think it'll be okay.
2) There are two ways:
2.1) If you are posting using HTML (like in MSN), the you simply have to add "width=" and/or "height=" to the < img > tag, like this:
<img width=X height=Y src=AddressOfImage>
This automatically scales the picture to the height and width you want. X and Y values are in pixels. To shrink the image, just put in a height and/or width that's smaller than the original image. Note: if you use both
height and width, browsers may end up stretching the image if your numbers aren't exactly to-scale; to make images properly scale down, use only height, or only width - browsers will automatically adjust the other dimension to its proper pixel size.
2.2) Use a photoeditor - like Photoshop or GIMP - and actually edit the image to make a shrunken version of your image. If you use photobucket, the built-in tools provide this capability for the images in your album. This takes more effort but is sometimes necessary - when you have a 1MB+ image embedded in a post, using just the above HTML shrinking method does not make it any faster to load. By actually making a smaller version of your image, you can usually get 1MB+ images to about 100kb or less, which makes webpages load much faster.
Hope that helps.
