Confused Newbie to site...


need to be old goofy me
Hi there,

I normally use the Cambridge Diet forum website - i've just joined this one tonight for a change.

Anyhoo, I have two questions:

a) how do i get my avatar to display? When I go into the 'User CP' section... then 'Edit Avatar'... there's no option for me to upload one when i get into that page...?!! Ehhh... :beam:

b) Also i can't get my ticker to display - it says i've used all my characters even tho i haven't wrote all that much in my signature!! GRR!!

Anyway, helloooooooo! :D

Get Rid of this ad and join in on the conversation for free today! Tap here!
:welcome: you need to have 20 posts to get a larger allowence in signature, and when you have 50 posts you get the full allowance in signature.

There may also be restrictions on avatar until you get credits from posting :)

Hi Yvonne and welcome to minis:). Not 100% sure but if another user likes your post or thinks it's motivational etc then they can give you rep points. It sorta increases your minis "street cred":D

Welcome! Rep power is what you can give to other members, or have given to you if you like someone's post/they like yours. You click on the little "scales" symbol on the bottom left of the post you like, and can put a message to the member. It's good to put your user name as it won't show up automatically. There is a more detailed post about it, but I can't quite remember where it is!
