    Hi wolfie! Glad you made it.

    To add an avatar, go to "My Profile" using the drop down menu by your username at the very top of the board. Click on the place where the avatar goes and an "Edit Avatar" button should pop up. IF the "Edit Avatar" button won't stay there when you go to move your mouse to click on it then use your mouse to right click on where the avatar picture goes. A menu will pop up but just ignore that and move down and click on the "Edit Avatar" button.

      BTW, if you're uploading a photo from your computer and you get an "invalid file" error message, use your photo editing (like Paint) to save the photo as a PNG file. I had trouble when first trying to upload mine using a JPEG file but when I turned it into a PNG file it took it right away. Others have had success with the JPEG file though.

        Hey guys- Welcome!!!

        Kenny posted above the "how to" regarding your avatars.

        Let me know if you can't get them working ( it could be something on the back end that we need to apply, there was a lot of work going on here today, before we made the switch.

          Checking in. Hello everyone, glad to see you all checking in. I lost my "eye". I will have to have my son come over and add another one. I am not very good at that. I need to get used to the new board before BB starts.

          I plan on it! Still having trouble with the avatar, but I'm not in a rush to get that done.

            Avatars should work now, so if you've been trying, go ahead and try it again.

                A lot of folks are still having trouble with their avatars. What device are you on and what did you have to do to add your's?

            • #25
              Well I'm here but no avi yet. Kenny I tried doing what you said about right clicking but no go. Since the only Avatars I'm seeing are the mods I don't feel lonely. I'm not the only pale grey no face here

              Norry, I am pale grey and will be that way for a while. I hope everyone uses their old avatars. I am so use to them connected to the name.

              OK, I was using Mozilla and no go on the Avatar so I switched over to Chrome and it let me change it. Could have been a fluke though cause I just tried to change it again and it wouldn't let me. LOLOL Just an FYI, I still get an error when signing in on IE but that's no problem. I don't use it much anyway.

                Not sure, Norry. I'm logged in on IE right now and haven't had any trouble. Because of the switch over you may need to clear your cache. Not sure.

                A lot of the issues, are cookie based, you might have to delete your cookies for IE. I'm using it and it worked okay. But it could very well be that the change to the new server, hasn't had time to completely resolve. Sometimes it takes up to 48 hours for everything to settle.

                Glad you guys are here : )

              Another tip, Shan did some testing and said she had no trouble adding an avatar on her tablet & smartphone as the "Edit Avatar" button doesn't disappear so if you have one of those devices you may want to try them.

                OK, It lets me change my avi but I have to do it in a round-about way since the Edit Avatar button won't stay there when I scroll over the avatar spot. I right click on where the picture goes (towards the top of the picture). A small menu box opens. While the menu box is open the blue Edit Avatar button stays there and I'm able to click on it which takes me to the screen where I can load an avi from my computer. Hope this makes sense to y'all.

                  Yeah, that's what I posted on the previous page. That's what we all had to do to add our avatars too, Norry (when on a PC).
