Customizing your Account
Posted 12 November 2005 - 09:04 PM
Since this tool is for strengthening our bonds as a Community, it would be great if we learn more from each other. This forum has a section called "My controls" where you can customize your profile, and write a little bit about yourself, about your likings. etc.. and you can also publish a picture of yourself, and choose an avatar.
For those of you who don't know what an avatar is, Avatar is a picture or an image that will identify your member account. Everytime you post a message your avatar will be posted as well next to your username. In my case I chose Superman logo as my avatar, since he is my favorite superhero, and I'm also huge fan of Smallville series on TV. You might choose any avatar of your choice, selecting one that really suits your personality.
You can edit you signature, send private messages to members, and customize your subscriptions to the different forums. Suscribtions are like a kind of an alert system, they will tell you when there are new messages in a given forum, or a given topic of your choice. Whenever a new message is posted in a topic you are subscribed to, the system will email you alerting you about the new message, so you can go to the forum and read it. Cool, isn't it?
I invite all members to also adjust their birthday dates. This way, the Forum will inform dayly whose birthday we are celebrating. If you see on the front page, there is a section called "Today's Birthdays", which is great for never forgetting to congratulate our dearest friends.
All this changes can be made clicking on the link "My Controls" in the top of the page, and then selecting the different options on the left menu.

I've finally arrived at the forum and admire the masterpiece that you've built.
I'm just trying to get my head around the functionality that's been provided.
What is the simplest way for me to change my password as the one that was automatically generated for me to get in is a scramble of 15 characters? I'd like to have something that I can easily remember.
