    Can someone explain to me in laymans terms what this mod actually is for? I'm confused by the screenshots and also the description. :S

    Simply adds an image to every post a user makes.

    The images displayed will be whatever they choose from choices set out in the Custom User Field.

    To see it in action and try it yourself then register on the site where it is demo'd go to your Preferences select a tv series from the list you are currently watching then make a post.

    So, it's kind of like an extra avatar?

    It's installed on my site. After filling in the custom field information and uploading the relevant images, members can select the TV show they're currently watching and when you mouse over their posts you can see it on the bottom right of every post they make. If you don't mouse over it, it's not as clear.

    Before mouseover:-

    I suppose if you want to look at it that way, also depends on the niche of your forum. As the site for the Demo is TV Show related members have the option to select from numerous TV shows to have display on their posts of the Current show they are watching.

    does this come with user permissions?

    Unfortunately not as it uses Custom User Fields and there are no permissions for them, however if you want to set perms for your Custom User Fields then install this by @cclaerhout

    You need to upload the images to the /images/messageicon folder.

    that's exactly what I did, but the images doesn't show up, that's why I asked if the /images/messageicon folder needs to be upload in another place? :)

    Your images are the same names as your field value? Excluding the .png part of the image of course.
