Go to your control panel, copy an avator from photobucket, that's a good site to have. Then click on signature update on the contol panel, and copy what you wanted as your avator. I hope that makes sense! Also, welcome to the forum! Hope to read and discuss your posting's! :)

When I changed my Avatar the same thing happened. For a while I would even see the new Avatar on other computers but the same old distorted one on my own. Maybe I had to restart my computer? I don't know. After about a week the new one was in place.

Post and look for answers to board-related questions here. I asked the first question, relating to showing the correct time zone:


I recently went into my control panel and changed the time zone to mine (Pacific), with auto-correct for DST (daylight savings time). The time is not displaying correctly, however, it's an hour off, and it even shows an hour off in my control panel preview.

I guess I could just change my time zone to one west of me, but does anyone have a better solution?

I'm afraid I can't help with this one. Maybe someone less technologically challenged will have an answer for you.

Try unchecking the box next to auto-correct for DST. You probably will have to change it back in the fall again...

Criminal Intent was more than "just a TV show" for me. It was the home of my heart. And that was because of Bobby Goren - and his actor Vincent D'Onofrio.

I think that having one behemoth thread for everything from technical questions to Michael Jackson tributes and info about people's personal lives is unconstructive. Perhaps we could start a 'technical questions' thread?

That's not a bad idea. Do you want to rename this one to make a general "technical questions" thread? Maybe I should pin it, too, so that it doesn't fall off the first page and get lost. I think I can pin threads. It's one of my "powers" I haven't tried yet. :lol:

I agree with both those ideas.

At the top right of the screen there's a link called "My Controls". When in there, on the left sidebar, there's a menu choice about editing your personal signature. When in there, you can add many features including pictures, using the toolbar. Good luck - I have the signature view turned off, so I won't know if it worked for you, lol.

I noticed that some members who have been here longer then myself, they're profiles show their location/where in the world they live (it's up there along with post count, title, avatar, etc), whereas newer members don't. I was wondering if this is permanant?

Actually, being a new member, when I signed up, they didn't ask for things like location, etc. But, if I go into the My Controls section, now, I think I can click on the "edit" section on the left-hand side of the screen and add in all that other stuff.

Scratch that. I tried what I just said and I have no idea what to do. Sorry! Maybe someone else knows?
