1. Welcome to DU, TimeToEvolve!

K&R means kick and recommend. The way you kick a post is simply to post in it. That automatically "kicks" the post back up to the top of the page. A simple recommendation won't do that.

You can recommend a post by clicking on the box that says "DU recommend".

I don't know how you put images in your sig line, but hopefully someone who does will come along to answer that one!

I hope you'll enjoy the site.

7. You can't directly copy and paste an anchor that requires javascript to work. ( n/t )

8. Thanks, I hate how that doesn't work.

 

Some of the links are universal, but I know if it's Java it's not going to behave like a link.

Happy New Year, Make7

2. Hi TimeToEvolve! Welcome to DU!

 

Kick, just means to post a reply.

Rec, means to hit the recommend button on left side, bottom, of the original post.

OP means Original Post or Original Poster.

So, K and R means kick and recommend.

Images in your sig line will come in a different lesson.

For now, lets work on our K an R!

6. Normally you can just put the web address for an image in your signature...

... (or in a post) and the DU software will display the image. For example, pasting this in your sig (or a post)...

  http://www.democraticunderground.com/imgs/logo.gif

... should display this...

 

Although the file format needs to be a jpeg, gif or png (I think those are the only ones that work) - and images used signatures will be scaled down to 100px high and/or 400px wide if they are larger than that (again I think those are the dimension limits - I'm too tired to look them up to double check).
