    Joined yesterday and would like to add a picture in the box instead of the generic male/female symbol.
    Any help?
    Thanks

    If you click on your name in the top right corner, then click on the generic avatar, you should get an option to change it. (At least, that's what I see when I click on mine).

    Nope. Nothing there. I wonder if I need to hit a certain number of posts before that option opens up to me.
    Thanks for the help, MrsC.

    The avatar can be uploaded after you have made 10 posts. However, we just upgraded to a new forum and it appears the setting to make this happen is different. I am going to have to make some changes to get this working properly. I will update this thread when it's fixed.

    Okay, yes you are limited in some respects because you are a new member. After 11 posts, you will be able to pick a new avatar.

    @Mr.Me I think you should be able to upload an avatar now.

    If anyone else does not have access to an avatar and wants one, comment here and I will manually update your profile so you will have access. It may take me a while to get the automated setting fixed.

    Thanks for the info, I had the same question. :) This info may be good to email to new members after they confirm their sign up. I'm still a bit puzzled why I can't post a new message and only reply to others? I'm thinking that's another rule?

    @SteveV24 - If you can't post a message it's likely because you fit the profile of a spammer and the forum blocks you. I have noticed you have replied to more than one very old thread that is no longer relevant (and those old threads require you to check a box before you can reply). Those posts will be deleted in case you are wondering what happened.

    This type of thing will get you banned if you continue doing it. You check the box and then reply with, "Wow crazy I had no idea" I have had to delete several messages that needlessly bumped old, irrelevant threads.

    I think you're still a few posts away from being able to do that, desert flower.

    Thank you all so much for bringing this up, I've been trying to figure it out for about two weeks now.
