I'll be adding this info in time. I'd like to include instrument details on every song article.

I wouldn't use Rock Band as a reliable source - there's a lot of artistic licence in there. I've got some good sources (Everett, Andy Babiuk's excellent Beatles Gear book, and this site: http://www.thecanteen.com/fabg.....itars.html), and I'll try and pull together a proper list of what instruments were used and where. I'm not sure of the format - I'll probably create a separate gear section, and divide it up into each band member, going through what they played chronologically.

Fortunately The Beatles used a fairly small range of instruments; certainly during the earlier years most of their recordings fewer than a dozen or so instruments.

MJB - thanks for the offer. Editing all the existing articles is what would take the most amount of time, and I can't really get any help on that. However, if you or anyone else has definitive, reliable info on instruments used, please add them as comments to the song articles and I'll update them.

Have a look at this post: http://www.beatlesbible.com/fo.....peed/#p170

I think you need to resave your profile after the avatar is uploaded. Try that; if it doesn't work I'll take a closer look.

MJB - that would be fantastic, if you have the time. I'll work on a separate set of articles about each of the instruments, which will feed into the gear section.

More smileys added. You can see them here: a-hard-days-night-john-1a-hard-days-night-john-2a-hard-days-night-john-3a-hard-days-night-john-4a-hard-days-night-john-5a-hard-days-night-paul-1a-hard-days-night-paul-2a-hard-days-night-paul-3a-hard-days-night-paul-4a-hard-days-night-paul-5a-hard-days-night-george-1a-hard-days-night-george-2a-hard-days-night-george-3a-hard-days-night-george-4a-hard-days-night-ringo-2a-hard-days-night-ringo-4a-hard-days-night-ringo-5

There are a few more to add, from the rear of the United Artists (US) version. I'll do those now.

Anyone got a big version of this image?

It'd be good to get old Wilfrid Brambell in there.

As for codes such as :), I can do this, but I could do with suggestions. So please, if you think any of these headshots lend themselves to any emoticons in partiular, eg :) :p :(, do say. At the moment they follow the pattern : ahdnr1 : (without the spaces before and after the colons) – where r is for Ringo, and 1 is smiley 1.

100 pixels is fine – it's not a quality issue here. Larger images should be rescaled (as your current one is, from 125px). I don't want to have much larger ones than that because it would push the width of the forum further out. The most I'd be willing to go to is 125px.

The joe2 avatar here is around 500 pixels square, but resized automatically to 100x100. It's about 150k in size. What's the size (in kb) of the one you're trying to upload? As I said before, if it's over 500k you'll have problems, as that's the current file limit. It should be enough, though, for an avatar pic.

If it's unrelated to file size I'll see what else I can do.

Yeah, sorry about the old smileys. Can't really be helped unless I keep the old ones a-hard-days-night-paul-1

Don't worry about that AHDN poster, though thanks for offering to rescan it. I think we've probably got enough smileys for now...
