    What is an avatar?

    Look to the left of this post and you will see:
    A short message (I change this periodically so it will differ)
    ECF Veteran
    Supporting Member (this could possible be there or not)
    A picture. This picture is my avatar.

    How do I change my avatar?

    At the very top of the page and on your left you will see:
    Your name
    My Profile
    Log Out

    Click on Settings
    Scroll down and look for "My Settings" which is located on the left.
    Click on "Edit Avatar"
    Here you have two options.

    Option 1. Enter the URL to the Image on Another Website:
    If you have a picture stored in a place like TinyPic or Photobucket all you have to do is copy the URL.
    There is two ways to do this.
    First way: Right click on the picture and click on "Copy Image Location."
    Second way: Put your mouse arrow over the photo and a box will appear below it. Click in the field next to Direct Link and click. You should see "copied" appear for a second or two.
    Once you have copied the URL, go back to Option 1, right click and paste.

    Option 2 and the easiest way to do it. Upload Image From Your Computer:
    Here you see another field and to the right of it you will see a Browse button.
    Click on it.
    Find your picture on your computer and double click on it.

    Look down and to your right and click on Save Changes.

    Now scroll back up and see if you see the picture. If so you were successful. :)

    How do I post pictures.

    A. First you have to find a picture (or gif). I usually search Photobucket, Bing or Google images. Once you find one, right click and select "Copy Image Location."
    To post the image, in the Quick Reply or Advance Reply look for the circled icon. Left click on it.
    The box pictured below will pop up. Since we are talking about the picture you just found online, you'll want to choose "From URL."
    But if you upload from your computer, you'll want to choose "From Computer."

    Next Right click and paste the image you copied in the field.
    Next uncheck the box below the field.
    Click Okay.

    There is an alternative way, just type[​IMG].

    To post videos use the icon to the right of the one I have circled (looks like a little piece of film).

    Keep in mind that DLS is in effect the second Sunday of March and ends on the first Sunday of November. Hawaii and some of Arizona do not change their time so this map will not be accurate all the time.
