Help!


This board has lots of nifty features that the previous one didn't have. Along with that niftiness goes more complexity, so if you're having any trouble figuring out how to get around this forum, please post your question(s) here.

Great, glad to see you here! emoticon

To create an avatar:

1. Select an image to use. (The board doesn't provide them, so pick one from your hard drive--it can be a photo or an image you created with a graphics program.)

2. The size should be 100x100 pixels (updated 10/23). (Open it up in your graphics program and resize it as necessary. If you have Photoshop, an easy way to size the picture is to set either the height or width, whichever is larger, to 100 pixels, with the other dimension being larger. Then crop the other dimension using the rectangle tool, but hold down the shift key; this will force the selection to be square.)

3. If you don't have your own website to store the photo, upload it to a free image-hosting site like Photobucket or ImageShack. Select the direct URL to the image and "copy" it.

4. Log into Runboard (if you haven't already) and go to the "Control Panel."

5. Click "Change miscellaneous options." (The Control Panel is also the place where you can set up your profile, under "Change my registration information." Better to compose it offline, then copy and paste it in here since the window is so small.)

6. Under "Change miscellaneous options," paste the URL (address) of your image into the first blank, next to "Avatar ..." (You can also change other preferences, like your signature, while you're here.)

7. At the bottom of the page, click "Save settings."

Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any more questions.

I tried to post an avatar too, but it didn't work for me either. What might be going wrong?

OK, I can see that it didn't work. I tried it again. So, let's see if the avatar shows!
