You need to have your image stored online somewhere. You can't load an image from your hard drive. Once you have it uploaded, just use the [img] tags. It's done the same was as most other boards supporting bbcode. Use the [img] tag, then include the http link, then include the closing [/img] tag (no space).

Well they (forum admins) probably don't allow images in signatures, and since the ubb code isn't being converted to html in your signature, I would say there must be an option to toggle that.

You do know that this profile here has nothing to do with your appearance on IRC when using mIRC, right?

It means it's an option the forum admin(s) can enable or disable. Apparently, images in signatures are disabled.

How do I add an image to my message?
In order to add an image to your message or your signature, you must have the image already available on a web server and reachable by a URL. This can be an image on your own personal web page, for example. To place an image within a message, simply use the following Markup Tag:



For example, if you have an image called cateye.gif and its available from your own website at http://www.mywebsite.com/pics, then you would use the following image markup:

Code:
[img]http://www.mywebsite.com/pics/cateye.gif[/img]


You can do the same for your signature. Click the My Home option found on any page. Then, under the Main Configuration heading, click on "Personal Information, email, password...". Look for the Signature box, and enter your desired information, including any images/markup as above.

Note: To keep the forums loading quickly for everyone, it is recommended that you do not exceed 35k for your image size.
