    I have posted pics before so I know how, however, today I was trying to upload a JPEG and the website told me there was an error due to incompatible file format. Can anyone help?

    Upload them to a free photo sharing site like photobucket, then use the "Img" button to insert the image.

    Hehe, it's not about age! It's just about having the correct info.

    1. Create an account at photoobucket.com. It'll walk you through how to do it.
    2. Once you've done that, click on the bottom box under the pic in photobucket. It will say "IMG Code". When you click on it, it'll copy the code automatically for you. Come back to BYC and past that into your message.
    3. Voila! Pic in your message.
