  • New guy, first question

    I read through the process of uploading photos....I'll have to try that once I get used to the forum format.

    The first question is: How do I set a custom Avatar? Same upload as for photos?

    Can't seem to find any hints so far.

    Some of you will know me from Big Blue Trains. Those that haven't been there, I am one of the moderators on that forum.

    I am primarily a modeler in HO scale ( Standard and 3' gauge ). My home roads are:

    Standard gauge;

    Sagaponack Montauk & Cindys Harbor

    Narrow gauge;

    HOn3; Sag Harbor Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Co.

    SHS&D, the "Shipyard", is the parent company of

    all the roads including the Wiscasset Bucksport & Schoodic Point, which is 30" gauge in O scale.

    The Shipyard is also the maintainer of all the locomotives, and the manufacturer of a couple of them, including their 3' gauge outside frame 2-4-4-2, and the 30" gauge 2-8-2.

    Currently under construction, is SHS&D 3' gauge outside frame 2-6-6-2.
    The greatest place to live life, is on the sharp leading edge of a learning curve.

      Ed is right, but you'll need to upload your avatar here first (doing that here in this thread is fine) and then copy the the photo's link and paste it in your profile.

      Or, just upload your avatar here and we'll (the admins) will load it for you.

        If you don't want to use one of the Forum's available avatars, you can upload your avatar picture to this thread:

        One of the Administrators will take it from there.
