    Updated instructions to add an avatar (which is a small picture that shows when you post in the forum).

    Important Rules:
    *Make sure your avatar is rated “G” for a general audience
    *Do not use a photo that is identifiable to you. No photo of yourself. Not a photo that is your avatar/gravatar for any other online space. Not your estranged adult child, etc.
    –we are attempting to maintain anonymity

    Choose a photo you take for this site, or choose clip art or some such. It can be something saved on your computer or phone. Don’t steal from anyone’s website. You could use something generic from an image site that allows this if you wish.

    You will need to upload the image for use in the forum, and do that, you will go into the forum and click on your username from a posting.

    From there, follow these steps:

    Click the word “profile.”
    Click on the word “edit.”
    You will need to scroll down to the word “avatar,” which is close to the bottom.
    Click on the term “choose file,” which will then bring up files from your computer.
    Locate the image you have chosen and you can double click on it.
    The name you have given your avatar appears next to the term “‘choose file.”
    Scroll down to find the term “‘update profile.” Click that, and you are finished.

    Or, as member SimplifyPlease once said when she posted similar instructions to help people in the forum: Voila! ENJOY!

    Thank you.
