  1. Can't save board in my favorites. Tried three times and it still doesn't show in my starred favorites.

    New Avatars!

    IP boards no longer offers a predefined avatar scheme. That avatar now runs off the profile picture. To get an image by your name you upload a profile pic 200 x 200 pixels or larger--but not too large. The owners would have a purchase a different brand of platform for the board to have a predefined avatar setup again. They probably wouldn't be able to get the same set either, as most of them were from manga and anime cartoons, many of which are now defunct.
  3. Board bookmark won't save. I've tried bookmarking it now three time and the bookmark won't stick. My iPhone doesn't seen to have an issue.
  4. I just had a thought: Reading through this thread. Some people are missing the old scheme. Older ladies do tend to fall into a groove and not like change. Many of them are also not too computer savvy either. IP baords does not offer a predefined avater package option anymore? Other IP boards that I am on have also gone to this scheme where the avatar runs off of the profile picture and the profile pictures has to be 200 pixels or larger. VBulletin still has an optional avatar package setup, though you probably won't be able to buy the same manga/anime package. Those avatars came from anime cartoons for teens. Some of the cartoons are now defunct.
  5. I am really loving this upgrade. Much easier to use. Originally I was put off by the predefined avatar scheme. I could never find one that could quite express who I am. Board that are limiting that way I don't visit that often. Now this board will be getting more visits from me.
  6. I haven't been on these boards for few months. I just love your shiny new look with the custom avatars!
  7. Trojans are usually attached to images. I wonder if its in someone's sig of if someone attached it to the graphics on there.
  8. All of my numbers are registered. I don't get too many solicitors.
  9. I am am admin on a V bulletin board unrelated to this one. I have a ban up to ten spammers a day. Those are the ones that get through all the security software we have set up.
  10. The way the board is set up, you cannot upload or link to your own avatar. You have to choose one from one of the three galleries. The main gallery features cartoon images that are mostly from Card Captors and Final Fantasy. They are a few others and some art pieces mixed in. Then there is the IPB community pack and the smiley avatars. I chose an airplane because cartoons, sugar sweet things and animals just are not my cup of tea.
  11. Thank you for your encouraging note. It is heartening to find I am not the only one who has gone through a private hell.

  12. Hi Oakleaf, I just read your post and I'm so happy to hear things are better for you. Estrogen feeding bipolar. How interesting. Have a great day!

    Hugs,

    I just put the sort of image I like in my sig. That will have to do since they don't have one in the gallery Now how you put one in your sig. First you open your signature control panel. Then you click the little button with the sunrise on it. A dialog box will pop up. Then you open another browser window. You set that browser window on your web space where you have your images stored. It is very important you have the image you want to use stored there. I recommend Photobucket. You copy the URL and paste it in the dialog box. Make sure the URL is in the format http//:img form not smg. Otherwise it won't work.

    You would go into your signature control panel and click the button for inserting an image. You would the choose the url of a very small image you have stored on your web space and copy then paste it in the box that pops up. I general don't like 'girly' things or human avatars. Most of the avatars are just that. Or they are things like wolves, or exotic animals. I just want a nice whole tree or a beautiful deer with a nice rack.

    I know this is rather an old topic for me to be posting in. I just cannot find an avatar that I am satisfied with. That is why I change avatars all the time. Could you find a whole tree or an antlered Elk? The ones you have just don't suit my tastes.
