I've been doing some cleaning and maintanence here on the forums.

You may have noticed I fixed the thread view counter.. :) That was driving me batty...

I also enabled the use of avatars... Please use good taste when choosing an avatar. I will be monitoring them and any that are questionable or lean towards profanity or vulgarity will be removed.

Comments or suggestions?? I'm open to... let me know if I can do anything else to make your visit here more enjoyable!

( I can't do a thing about the pop-ups... sorry!)

Hmmm..

For some reason, I can't make the avatars work.

well, you can't make them work and I've no idea what the heck you two are talking about. I would like to though, if anyone would like to try and explaine a few things about avatars and those cute little smilies everyone seems to use I'd be most grateful. This is the only site I have ever posted on and I've only been doing that for about a week, maybe. Thanks a lot, Olivia

Ohhh!!! I want an avatar and it's not working Moni!! I know we have some very talented people on here who could do a few Garthy avatars (Hint!Hint!) so we have a few to choose from....personally I'd like to see one of him where he is sitting on the tractor!! It's my favorite!!:D

Well, Until I can figure out how to add a selection of avatars for you to choose from you'll have to add your own avatar in the User Control Panel by uploading it from your computer.

You can take whatever picture you want to use as your avatar and resize it.

Size cannot exceed 50 X 50 pixels.

Moni,

I don't think it is configured correctly to allow us to upload avatars- yet. When I go to the control panel and then "edit avatars", there is no way to uncheck the box which says "do not use an avatar."

I can help ya out, if you don't mind. :)

All set...:)

The picture I used didn't lend itself too well to being resized so I'll have to find another that works.

Right now you have to make your own avatar until I can get a few uploaded to the PG server for you to choose from.

Picture should be re-sized to not bigger than 50x 50 pixels.

Go to your user control panel.
On left hand side, second from the bottom link says Edit Avatar. Click here.

Choose Use Customer Avatar and then click the browse button. Find the avatar you've saved on your PC and click save changes.
This should do it!

Hey!

I'd be more than happy to help you out. You just need to do a few things.

Goto: www.yahoo.com.

Click the "Images" tab above the search box.

Type in "Garth Brooks" and hit enter.

Find your 3 favorite images and download them to your computer. (You should do 3 because after I re-size the image to fit, some may not look as well as others.)

Once you have that done, PM me for my email address and then you can send me the pictures. I will re-size them and send them back for you to choose one and upload to your profile. :)

Angel,

I see you online. I was going to send you a private message with my email address, but you have your preferences set not to allow PM's. Also, your settings won't allow me to email you through this board.

Because of bots (which scour boards and collect email addresses), I don't post my email in public. If you change your preferences in your user control panel to allow emails and PM's, it will help us out. :) :)

Lastly, because I am at work, I don't have a way to re-size the pics so they will work. If you are adept with a photo-editing program, just reduce the image size to less than 50 x 50 pixels. If you need me to do it, it's gonna be about 24 hours until I get back to you.

I don't get it. I did everything you guys have said. I have even sized them smaller than 50 x 50 pixels and the message is always the same - picture too big.

BTW, I am using a Mac. Don't know if that makes a difference. I have always had this message on any board that I have tried to use an avatar on.

Maybe I will try on my PC at work tomorrow. See if that makes a difference.
