Here's five things you can do to personalize your profile here. :smile

1. Add An Avatar

<--- See under my name there's a picture of me. That's an avatar.
Go to:
- user control panel (upper right)
- profile (left sidebar)
- edit avatar

I'd love it if everybody put their picture there but if you want to use something else, you can do a search on google for avatars.
Here's a few sites that I found.
http://www.avatarist.com/
http://avatars.jurko.net/
http://www.skamu.com/

You'll need to upload your avatar to a site that allows remote hosting. I suggest photobucket.com. They're free and you can upload a TON of images to their site. If you need help, let me know (by posting in this thread) and I'll do my best to help out.

2. Add Your Location

Under my picture you'll see a spot for location. You can be as specific or as general as you want.

Go to:
- user control panel (upper right)
- profile (left sidebar)

3. Add Your Birthday

Did you know that all birthdays for the day are posted at the bottom of the main page? Add your special day! (You have the option of adding the year or not. It's up to you).

Go to:
- user control panel (upper right)
- profile (left sidebar)

4. Add A Signature

Signatures are great because they allow us to express ourselves. We don't have any rules about size or length, but please keep your signature a reasonable size. Images and links (even if they're not clickable) are not allowed.

Go to:
1. user control panel (upper right)
2. profile (left sidebar)
3. signature

5. Add your Adoption Connection

Go to
1. user control panel (upper right corner)
2. profile (left side bar) and scroll to the bottom.
3. You have up to 50 characters. If you look at my profile in this post you'll see how it will look.

You can use this thread to test out for personalizations also!!

probably a dumb question but here goes: I have my photos loaded in at cvs.com, how to i upload here or to photobucket as you suggested? Remember i don't do this picture thing so be as simple as you can in explaining this to me....hard to believe i'm actually an educated woman huh? :lol

I doubt that cvs allows remote hosting so to upload your picture to photobucket you would need to save them to your hard drive (right click and 'save as') and then upload them to photo bucket.

If you need step by step directions, let me know and I'll post them for you. :pink

Hi Joanne,
Do I have to wait until I have more access to personalize my profile? I am limited to a short phrase for my adoption connection and can't seem to add a signature or picture.
Thanks!
Melissa

Hi Melissa. Check and see if you can add a signature now - I just changed the settings. As far the profile picture....it has to be hosted someplace first and then you can add the link in your profile. The "adoption connection' area is set to 50 characters. :blue
