Most posters to these forums have an image representing them that is included in the "Author" column on the left hand side of the page. Adding your own image is easy, if somewhat non-intuitive.

  • You'll need to create a suitable image. The forum software will limit you to 85 by 85 pixels, and a maximum file size of 30kB. Creating or finding a suitable image is left as an excercise to the reader. Very Happy
  • Go to the "My account" section of the MBGA website, and click on the "edit" tab.
  • Scroll down to the "Picture" section, and click the Browse button, and select the image you want to use.
  • Click the "Submit" button at the bottom of the page.

The selected picture will now show up next to your forum posts.

Nice looking new site

And when I'm creating a post, it's actually going down a line when I press enter instead of double-spacing for some reason (don't know if that was because I'm in Linux or whatnot).

Looks good to me :}


It gave me a few issues with logging in, not accepting my password and whatnot, but one password-request later, and here I am :}

Initialy I could not get logged in, thanks to a little "tecchnical" support I logged out and then logged back in...problem gone.

MBGA does a first rate job of their site, I know this is the place I come to see what the latest news in geo caching is.

I really like the new look: "Change is good donkey"

I figured out why I couldn't log in to these forums from my office. I was trying to log in from the forum page, but that didn't work. Then I went back to the MBGA home page and logged out and back in from there. Now when I come to the forums it shows me as logged in.

Much better that we have our own forum engine. I mean we have enough computer geniuses to give MicroSquish a run for their money (but we would rather run for caches then cash), so we should be able to handle this.
