    I've noticed that a few of you don't have avatars yet. An avatar can be pretty much any image although, if you look at the size of the circular boxes that the avatar is presented in, you'll see that it might best not to include one that requires a lot of detail, such as a group photo or something. If choosing a photo, it doesn't actually have to be of you, but pick one where the face is roughly centered in the photo. Pretty much any other image will work, as well. There may be limits on the size that the forum software will allow, as I haven't looked into that yet, but if it will accept it, the software will resize it to fit the box.

    To change your avatar, click on your profile (upper right). You should be presented with a pop-up selection of pages. Choose the one that reads, "Personal Details." Click on the default image to change your avatar. You will then be prompted to choose an image from somewhere on your computer.

    In this section, you will see other options, such as gender options, where you may choose for that to be unspecified to other members of the forum. You may also opt to show only the day and month of your birth, so that people can wish you a happy birthday, to show only the year of your birth, both, or neither.

    If you wish, you may also tell us a little bit about yourself.

    When you're through, don't forget to click the "Save Changes" button near the bottom.

    @Pat Baker , I love your avatar. I've got a few of those dummies sitting around which I sometimes use as models in my photos, but they haven't seen much use lately.With a little time and effort they can be persuaded to do some really interesting things.

    I used to have one of them in my avatar at another site years ago.

    I really like the design of the site, and how your profile picture is circular instead of a square (like most sites), it gives a much more relaxed feeling. Good job!

    If you haven't already, please upload an avatar. It does not have to be a photo of yourself, it can be pretty much any image or graphic, but everything looks so temporary without one.

    I put up my avatar with the help from my blogging mentor. She said people like to see whose behind the computer, who they are chatting with.

    I've noticed that a lot of our new members don't have avatars. While they are not required, an avatar does make it much easier for people to follow your posts, and it makes the forum more attractive.

    I am unable to add my avatar. It is "stored" by a site which assigns urls to images from one's computer (servimg.com).

    Must I save it to my computer, to place it in the forum as my avatar?

    Thanks! Frank

    lI don't' know. Can you take a pic of yourself or you and your wife and post it as your avatar? Or one of the beautiful river in the area you two are in or somewhere else? My fav place there is the River Bell Casino. Haven't been there is 10 or 12 years.

    Yes, I'm keeping it all under control here. Just came in from the firepit. Sat out there for hours with hubby, bro and 3 of the grand kids who are all in their early 20s. Pretty fun night. Now we are inside watching TV. :)

    You will need to upload the file to SENIORSonly Club forum. You can do that, as @Ken N Louis suggests, by right-clicking on the image, wherever it is stored, and saving it to your computer, then uploading it here from the Avatar section. You can then delete the file from your computer if you wish, as it doesn't have to remain there.

    Another option that is supported here is a gravatar, which is something that began as a WordPress thing, I think. You can learn more about gravatars here.

    I have this thread pinned but we still have a whole lot of members who aren't using avatars. Some of you removed your avatars because you were mad at me, and I get that. Otherwise, please, I would appreciate it if you'd upload an avatar, as this helps differentiate people within a thread and makes things look nicer. I don't care what you use as an avatar: a photo of yourself or of someone else, a cartoon image, flower, pet, or pretty much anything that isn't likely to get someone arrested. You can use anything you want. I use my photo because I couldn't think of anything prettier. Whatever you want to use, but please upload an avatar.

    @Louise Williams,

    This is nothing more than a post in the forum. You received notice of it as you have probably received notices of other posts from threads that you are watching. You will probably receive an email notice of this one as well. The forum sends them out automatically, and it's coming from my gmail.com address because people were complaining that they weren't receiving notices when I used my other email address.

    It isn't addressed to anyone in particular, and I didn't email anyone about it, and certainly not anyone in particular. If you don't want to receive email notices when someone posts in threads that you are watching:

    Go to your profile by pointing your cursor over your name in the upper right part of the page, then:
    1. Go to Privacy. Uncheck the box that reads, "Receive site mailings" if it is checked.
    2. Go to Preferences. Uncheck the box that reads, "and receive email notifications of replies" if it is checked.
    Or you could do as the email suggests, and click on the links where it says, "If you no longer wish to receive these emails, you may disable emails from this thread or disable all emails."

    If you prefer, I can do that for you.
