Changing Avatars


When you first sign up, the forum software automatically creates an avatar for you, which by default is nothing but the first letter of your username on a random background color.

You can easily change this avatar in your preferences by uploading your own picture. Ideally the picture you upload for this should be 120x120 pixels.

If anyone would like help creating a nicer avatar, let me know what you would like, or just send me a suitable picture and I will scale and/or format it and assign it to your username.


I want to change my user name

  1. Click on your avatar (image) in the top right corner, in the header.
  2. In the menu that pops up, click on your username.
  3. I the menu at the top, click on Preferences.
  4. Under Username, click on the pencil icon.
  5. Change the Username field and click the Change button.


I don’t have a pencil icon next to my username in step 4.


The forum software has a time limit built in (3 days after registration) after which usernames can no longer be changed by members. If you send me a message with the username you would like it changed to I will try and do this for you from the Admin panel.
