Exactly that.

So you can hide some of your images. Specifically the HUGE! ones. They're still there, they're just not taking up screen real estate.

I would end up spoilering all of my images (Unless they're tiny), so the "View next unread" function would work.

I second Meowgan. If you're going to post lots of pictures, or a really big picture, it would be cool to be able to spoiler them, so that you can choose to view them all or not. If you've already seen someone's pics, you can scroll down to the other posts without waiting while all the pics load.

If you can't, don't worry. I can just close my eyes until I scroll past them, or something.

So after someone made a comment that they were a girl right after one of my comments for getting made fun of for playing video games, I clicked on my own profile and noticed it listed me as Male!! I couldn't find anywhere to change this! (I am also a girl).

Is this a board error that it assigns to people, or can it be changed and I am just overlooking it? Thanks!

That seems to be one of the options, along with game console, that you could set for a while but now cannot. My profile doesn't seem to have a section for gender at all, but some do.
