Thanks! I never even noticed that before.

okay so, here's a few questions...

how do i add my avatar? the URL thingy won't work, or maybe i'm doing it wrong?
do we still have user pages?
what's with the banner signatures, how do i get one?

this will take some getting used to for sure. thanks for any help.

If you want a siggy (ie banner signature), upload a picture to photobucket or tinypic and then use the link that has [IMG] around the words, then save it and it will show up after every post.

As for avvies, they have to be 90 pixels by 90 pixels. If you upload an avatar to photobucket or tiny pic, use the direct link for the url and then paste it in the box. At first mine didn't work because it said it was too big, so I changed the settings of the pixel box on the uploading page to 90x90 and then it uploaded!

Make sense?
just breathe in, you'll be fine. i'm right here, by your side.

1. new/more expressive smilies
2. avies/user names moved to the left side of the screen
3. quick reply box


oh yay! thank you Janet! Avies on the left would make things so much easier.

I also don't care for the fact that you have to wait a certain amount of time between posts, it's annoying. :lol:

the editing feature will be turned on but if there's any "abuse" of it, it will be turned off again.

I don't have time to do it right now but will get it done asap. Be patient.

A lot of the user rights have to be applied separately for each part of the forum Amanda. It could be that Janet's still working on switching the other 'edit' buttons on, as I'm pretty sure she plans to allow them right across the board

JENNA!! I see you're signed in, would you please go through the forum and see if you can edit any of your posts in each section. I've turned them on and I want to be sure it's working.
