    I was GLsG on this site until yesterday - am still signing in as GLsG, but GLsG possessed by the ghost of a long-banned TESSER!

    GL will you be able to revert to GL @danielatucci once the new site is up and running?

    Have you been returned to your correct identity now? We've implemented a fix so avatars and users should be correct now.

    Thanks for your patience.

    I think I have managed to change mine..... to the R.E.M taxi which amazingly stopped right in front of me when I was in London for their Hyde Park concert :)

    or maybe not.....:confused:

    So, I have changed my avatar and the new one is showing on the main (opening) page of the site, and also on the news page, but not on here where I am stuck with the old one (which incidentally does not wiggle!). Ideas anyone? @TES_Rosaline @TES_Pippa

    As above with monicabilongame, a new avatar I added last night is showing in parts of my profile area but not against my posts. I've repeated the upload a few times and have logged out and in again, but no change.

    I've also noticed that I can't switch the green dot off, even though I've unticked the 'Show Online Status' box.

    @magic surf bus I believe you can always see your own green dot - but it is not visible to others. You need to get someone who is online to check what they can see. I don't know if you are still logged in at 0923, but I can't see your green dot at the moment.

    I can't work out how to add an avatar - would some kind person talk me through it please.

    There are some great, new avatars! Magic Surf Bus no longer has legs and Middlemarch has become Sarah Lancashire! Love all the moving ones :D

    Hi @cosmosinfrance

    You can upload you avatar by going to your user profile.

    Click on your username in the top right-hand corner of the page:


    A drop-down menu will appear:


    You need to click on the Your Profile Page link. You should see your user profile page and click on the Edit my profile button:


    You should see a camera icon at the bottom of the current avatar on the left-hand side of the page:


    Click on the camera icon. A pop up box should appear. There are three icons on the side of the pop-up box and select the icon which you need to upload the image you want from a computer, camera or link. For example, if it's from a computer click on the choose a local file blue button:

    You beat me to it Rosaline. Much better than my explanation though.
    Thanks for sorting the spam.
