Josh:

In PROFILE - click on PROFILE INFORMATION and choose the check circle that says "I WILL UPLOAD MY OWN PIC" then it should be like posting any photo to Imageshack - I haven't done it but I'm pretty sure you can figure it out from there. Good luck.

Nice one Danno:

Glad you got that. I try to point people toward that HELP button next to the HOME button on the forum tool bar - it really has lots of info and it talks in JARGON that I try to speak, but my layman wording often falls short.

I'm always glad to try answering questions, but I'm learning all the admin features and also constantly logging in using my demobeemaster name which restricts my permissions to those of all members - allowing me to compare and test features BEFORE fausely assuming a member can or can't do something.

This forum software though allows soooo many more options for members, I say to look around in your profile, checkout how easy posting images are today and so on.

I rarely compare our forum to others, but the fact we have avatars (which I know most people love - including me) and the fact we have image posting in all the forums is something that makes our site special and unique. I'm proud to keep the site commercial free and partially member donation supported really tells me that we're doing things right.

I like your avatar a lot by the way!!!
