Your forum identity

How do I access my profile?

Click on your picture or name at the top right hand side of the page if you want to make any changes or to access messages, notifications, discussions or comments. Or just use the links next to your name: Globe (Notifications), Envelope (Private Messages), Bookmarks (Saved Stuff) or Cog (Profile).

What are avatars?

Avatars are small square images that you can choose to display on the left of every message you post. They form part of your identity on the boards and are the first thing people see so choose with care.

How do I set up my avatar?

Click on your name, picture or the cog at the top right hand side of the page. Click on the “change picture”. Select a photo on your device (2Mb maximum) that you have the right to share. Click upload. Job done.

Why can’t we have user profiles, recent visitor lists, post counts and signatures, like we did on the old boards?

The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. What we gained in functionality, usability and mobile enablement we lost in other areas. Sorry about that.
