What a friendly lot - This thread is so interesting - have noticed that suddenly the many regulars in General chat now have an image - certainly lightens the mood when reading.
Would like to suggest that we encourage some of the regulars in other forums like Geneolgy chat - any takers

Edit: Sorry I forgot to mention George......


Mayfield Report 10 Apr 2013 10:23

Thank you all for your kind comments. George would have appreciated, it he used to sit outside the front gate, I think it was because he just loved attention from passers by. :-D

When GR first gave us the option to have avatars there were a lot of comments on them. I remember Mildred taking ages to actually get hers to work.

Mr Jones Avatar is a lot more wrinkly than the original.. he changed it one Christmas and when he went back to the original picture it did not reproduce him as he was... sort of a back to front before and after the wrinkle cream was applied.

Some people believe it or not who changed their avatars regularly can no longer do so and are stuck with an image that they no longer wish to have.

And RR is correct (often is) ;-) If you cannot see other avatars why would you want one.

Others may not want them but that hardly qualifies them as moaners and others may not know exactly how it is done and are still finding their way around the boards.

Persie :-)

"Sad that there are still a couple of old moaners who just refuse to add one.
One cannot help but feel sorry for them - they refuse to take on something new."

Can not believe I have read those comments.

It is not compulosry to add one !!!

Have you not given any thought to the members that use specially adapted computers so they can "read" the boards by listening. I know of two such members and there are probably more that do not advertise that fact.


SueMaid Report 21 May 2013 23:38

A rather unpleasant comment, NanaSue :-(


Persephone Report 21 May 2013 23:39

Mind you GB you are showing your best side in that photo...

We had a Prime Minister here many years ago that would only allow his photo to be taken as a right profile.


Edit: sorri Sue darling I was typing when you popped in and I agree with you.


GlitterBaby Report 21 May 2013 23:50

Yes always was my best side

Certainly not worth putting a picture of my face on here as that really would scare the members ;-)


Persephone Report 22 May 2013 00:01

Are you getting a complex RR? If it had been reported I would have backed you up not just on here but straight to powers that be.



SueMaid Report 22 May 2013 00:12

I would have too :-)


supercrutch Report 22 May 2013 00:52

Agrees with GB, certainly not compulsory to have an avatar. People that use a red filter on their screen wouldn't see the pics anyway.


CupCakes Report 22 May 2013 00:59

RamblingRose :-D :-D Just love your new one - so cool.

I know it all down to personal choice but....jokes aside.

Taking about the past is sometimes rather tiresome. New ideas and a fresh approach is often the way forward.


jax Report 22 May 2013 01:08

Seeing as we have been able to put on a profile pic for two years, why did you only add one in the last month or so NS?

I had one of my profile pics removed on they too have to nice and not upset anyone...
