    Avatar/Icon Photos

    Hi Jan
    Two things I am really happy about on this new site are the fact one can re read the posting of the person one is replying to. In order to get my wording in better form without getting sidetracked etc. It really makes a big difference and helps me a lot. And the other good thing is having the box to tick if one wants to know when a reply has been made to the topic. Well done and thank you to you and the website team.



    Yes, the new forum seems very user friendly! I found it easier to rejoin with a new gmail address. Then i could get into my profile and change my password.

    Thank-you! I am new here and this really helps.



    hi im new here too and already feel this sight has so much to offer. The work that must have gone into it is deserves a standing ovation. For the first time in fifteen years i dont feel so lost and alone, so i cant thank you enough for that. G 🙂



    I see some members have put an avatar/picture by their name but how do you do that? I can’t see any way to do that on the “edit profile” section. How do you do it?



    It’s all right I’ve now seen the post called “Photos” by Sarah Kay so there’s no real way of doing it.


    Jan Sadler

    I’ve replied here too in case anyone else asks.
    Unfortunately this option doesn’t come with this particular forum. The odd photo you see is because someone has their photo as an icon on some other website. I’ve asked many people about this but they don’t know how the photo got there, it just appeared!

    I’m really sorry as it’s a lovely idea. I’ll keep looking and if I find a way I’ll let everyone know.

    If anyone has the answer, please let us know!
