To avoid any confusion about people can/can't do on the Toyark Forums, here is a complete (ish) list of the rules. Unless specifically stated, it should be taken that all these rules apply to every forum here. Some forums may have additional rules; these will be in a sticky in the appropriate forum, so check before you post.
1. No trolling, or flaming.
Any form of personal insult is a no-no. As a basic rule of thumb: if you think that what you are about to post is insulting, don't post it.
2. No posting IM or PM conversations.
This is not only a breach of privacy, but it is also incredibly annoying. Most people are not going to want to wade through an IM conversation you had with someone.
3. No harassing forum members.
This goes for either in posts on the boards (see rule #1) or in private messages.
4. No Political Discussion at all.
No Jokes, no flash animations, no political signatures, nothing.
5.No links to illegal downloads or copyrighted materials.
This includes MP3's, games, pirated software, movies, full book or full comic scans.
6. No discussion on where to download videogame "Roms".
Talk of the actual emulators is permitted though, as these are fully legal.
7. Selling of pirated software, copied episodes, comics on CD, copied CD's, etc. is not permitted.
Neither is linking to places where these things CAN be bought.
8. Advertising of other toy news, toy blog, toy discussion or any other websites is permitted within signatures only.
Posts or threads to promote such sites will be removed. You can not post threads with the sole purpose of promoting another site.
9. No porn.
No links to pornographic sites or content will be allowed whatsoever. This includes nude cartoons (hentai).
10. No discussion on abortion or religion.
As with politics, these topics are guaranteed flamefest generators; as such, debate/discussion on them is not allowed anywhere on here. Holiday cheer threads to express "Merry Christmas," "Happy Easter," etc. are permitted. Within those threads, posts that pursue avenues of religious debate/discussion will be removed.
11. Keep posts in the appropriate forum.
For example, don't post a topic about DC Toys in the Marvel Toys Forum, that sort of thing.
12. No spam threads or posts
Out-and-out spam posts will not be tolerated.
13. Keep posts on-topic.
Don’t wander into a thread and post irrelevant rubbish. You wouldn’t like it if someone did it to you.
14. No mouthing off at staff.
If you have a problem with a decision a member of staff has made, PM them or a higher up. Never post your problems with staff in public.
15. No alternate identities.
This is instantly bannable if we catch you. One account per person. No name changes. Pick one, keep it.
16. Keep the swearing to a minimum.
A lot of posters here swear a fair bit in real life; however, you never know how old the next person to read your post is going to be. So try to keep the amount of swearing you use in posts to a minimum.
17. No bandwidth theft.
Every time you link to a picture hosted on someone else’s site without their permission, you are stealing their bandwidth. If you do this in a signature, and we find it, your signature will be removed on the spot.
18. No posting anything for banned members.
If we find you posting sales, art, messages, etc. for a banned member, for any reason, you will find yourself banned for one week. Do it again, and it will be a permanent ban. No warnings will be given.
19. No posting of "Graphic Images".
Corpses/dead bodies, mutilated bodies, or any image which can be considered overly sick or disgusting. Posting of these types of images will result in a one week suspension from the boards.
20. No personal ads.
We're not a personals forum. So no "Any girls wanna go out with me?!" or "Single white male looking for obese elderly honey who's into mud-eating" or stuff like that.
21. No public discussion about rules or administrative action taken on members.
Concerned about the rules? Did we discipline someone or move a thread? PM us about it if you have questions. Neither are appropriate topics for public dialogue.
22. Social Groups and User Photo Albums
All rules above apply to Social Groups and User Photo Albums, plus anywhere else on the Toyark.com site.
Although that seems like a lot of rules, most of them boil down to one simple sentence:
Think before you post.
Thanks for reading, guys.
Only ONE picture per signature.
Signature pictures are to be no larger than 40KB in file size.
Sig pics should be no larger than 200 pixels in height and 500 pixels wide. We do not want the images to stretch the pages or take up the entire page. This size rule also applies to text.
If you are curious as to where your current sig pic stands, click your 'right-mouse' button on your picture, and check it's Properties. If still you are not sure, just ask.
Here is an example of the largest possible image you can use in your signature.
If you see a black bar above your signature image, saying "This image has been resized....." then it means your sig is either too wide or too tall. Please fix it and change it as soon as possible.
Do NOT steal bandwidth from other sites.
Make sure the picture you use is one you host yourself, or that somebody else has uploaded for you.
Signatures not following these guidelines will be removed.

Updated with signature image example. Please adjust your signatures to fit these specs. Anyone with a black bar above their signature image needs to fix and adjust them asap. Thanks!
