PMs aka Private Messages | Avatar Help

Hey Everyone,

I have noticed that some of you may not know how to retrieve your PMs. I myself have sent some to members with no response and I know they visit on a regular basis.

Here we go... when on a forum page find the Elk in the top left and look below it and under the label Board Index with the little Home icon and you will see User Control Panel (1 new message) or 0, 2, 3, whatever you may have. Just click inside the parenthesis () and it will take you to your mailbox. Let me know if you are having issues.

How about hitting on adding an avatar photo. I haven't succeeded in doing that. Ralph

Avatars: First you need a correctly sized picture file. If you have picture processing software, you must resize the picture Maximum dimensions to width: 120 pixels, height: 120 pixels, and file size to 100KB or smaller. Save this file using a new name.

Then go to the User Control Panel, there you should find a number of tabs:Overview, Profile, Board Preferences, Private Messages, Usergroups, and Friends & Foes. Select Profile.

On the left side, you should find buttons: Edit Profile, Edit signature, Edit avatar, and Edit account settings. Select the Edit avatar button. This page should give you the option upload from your machine (easiest option). Click on the browse button and find your avatar file you saved. Select it and it should upload automatically. If it errors, read the message and take appropriate action to fix the file dimensions/size.

You should also check out the other tabs to customize your account.

Hope this helps. If you can't resize your picture or change the dimensions, send it to me via email at tjnewman@cox.net and I'll return it to you as soon as possible.
