I Hate to be Grumpy on Day One!

Er, problems already.  The length of the name you can use for the username is way too short - only 15 letters and spaces.  Needs increasing to at least 20!Smiley Sad

 

Now when Kerry said we could have avatars - I thought an avatar, right - a character, that looked like a person, a thing, a big Na'avi type of thing - what have we got, a coloured rectangle?????

I agree - although its loading fine for me until I come to the message composition window - that is a bit slow. I am running Firefox 3.6 with NoScript, Request Policy and Adblock so whether that speeds things up I'm not sure.

Hi Guys

 

The ability to upload an image of your choice as an avatar is going to be a privilege that is earned as part of the ranking structure.  It will not be available to anyone currently.

 

More details on the ranking structure to be revealed soon.  Kepp an eye on the announcements board.

 

Thx

Kerry

Aha - I see.  Well I suppose I haven't wasted the last half hour producing an Avatar

Well if you want to increase your rating you'll need people to like your messages. Did you know by killing your profile totally you also kill your list of messages so other readers can't find them.

"suggestion for a forum area for sensory impaired people"

It really isn't that difficult to make a web site that is disability friendly, quick to load, able to run on all screen sizes (It's unusable on their own BTBBA product) Nobody in any minority group should need specialised support or areas on the web just to use the web. All the webmasters need do is THINK! At least we got a quick response to that idiotic black banner with blue writing that we started today with.

I think some of the posters have built up an amazing rep from the previous forum, that should be taken into consideration, hopefully they don't need to start from scratch.
