How do I change my avatar? Can I just use a picture on my phone?




You can .. but if you want a full one like mine you will need to talk to
the "creators".

To begin with you will need to upload a jpeg or png .
look at your tool bar on the top of the screen , can you see the down arrow on the right?
Click it and select upload and follow you nose. It is easier on a computer.

When upload is mastered go to your newly uploaded pic and select it .. there is an option right there to use as
an avatar.. there are some size and dimension restrictions .. so have a look at that.

Howdy and all that stuff, nice to see new members joining up and asking questions on how this site works.
As others have already mentioned it will become second nature to you faster than you can say IV :-)

Fasten your seat belt and enjoy the ride!

Regards, Iwinder

One thing you will find about this place ( that is daunting and even repulsive, at first ) is, you'll need to support your stance or argument. A lot that might get by on other forums &/or in the real world doesn't fly so easily, here. Generally - the challenges come from skeptics that have been burned before.

Looks like you're well on the way to 20, already.
Took me years (literally) to get to 20 posts.
Good Luck.

Welcome! I admire you courage! If it helps, I'm new here also and have no idea what I'm doing yet, but am getting the hang of it. Got two stars for some really irrelevant replies. So the beauty is there is always somebody on your frequency. Just go with what you feel most passionate about, and gotta start somewhere. Be prepared for some thrashing, they love to do that to newbies, however it's a great opportunity to strengthen your brain muscles

Go lucky!

Thank you for the welcome! And you'll never get an answer if you're too scared to ask the question. Hope to see you in the forums!

Thank you for the advice and daunting is definitely an appropriate word. Sounds like its best I forum surf a bit to break me into how things work around here. Better make sure I eat my websites before I started debating with the big boys around here.

So, rather than piece meal it, I'll just give ya my standard welcome and let ya work it from there.

I don't even know what the stars and flags mean yet.
Im all about coleslaw assuming it comes with fried chicken. Do we have fried chicken here? *drools*
I'll be sure to avoid lurking in the dark hallways unless we are in an epic game of hide and go seek. Thanks for the warm welcome

If someone offers you chicken, for the love of the gods, keep away! I'm still regretting the last time I accepted meat products on an online forum.

*shudders* ugh...

The cookies should be fine however, hey... where the heck are the cookies! Hmm... oh well.

ATS is basically just one big game of hide and seek. We hide our emotions (our test has determined that was a lie) but we seek the truth!

ONWARD TO VICTORY FELLOW TRUTH SEEKERS!!!

AAAARRRHHH!!!

*looks behind and no one is following*

...boy do I feel stupid.

stars determine your value as a human being. flags are for people who make to many threads.
my advice is to make sarcastic one line posts or cat pics.

Avoid meat products. Got it.

Cookies..... well I will neither confirm or deny that the cookie jar is currently empty and sitting on my kitchen table *checks mirror for chocolate residue*

And the truth..... the very definition of that word in itself can cause a debate alone. I'll have to get beefed up on my forum knowledge before I take the total plunge.

May the force be with you!
