Near the top of the page when you are logged in, you'll see a button that says User Cp. This is basically your own little board control panel. From this, you can change your profile, edit your time settings, put people on ignore, add your personal images, send PM's (private messages) and a whole lot of other nifty little things.
One thing that I would like to ask everyone to do, is to add in their birthday. It doesn't ask you for the year.....don't worry.
You only have to put the month and the date. On our old board we really had no way to keep up with birthdays, but here, if you have yours entered, then it will display on the main board on your birthday. We would never intentionally snub anyone's birthday......but if we don't know when it is, hard to post anything about it. The place to go to enter that is: UserCp - Edit Settings...Birthday and enter yours...save changes.
If anyone has any questions about where to find a function or how to set any of your preferences up, please feel free to post here and ask!
