I went to my profile, clicked on update profile.

From there it gave the option to browse so I clicked that and then uploaded a photo from my photo's on my computer. It was really easy!

I loved the little flower and will change my avatar from time to time lol because I am goofy like that but I wanted something that says "I am a Military Wife and proud of it!"

I found another trick as well. To the far right of the folder title (such as the General Discussion) you'll see a drop down menu. Click on the one that reads "Show messages without replies" and that will show you all the messages in the folder and it is just slightly easier to maneuver around the post that way.

Just some new tips I thought I would share!

I think that's only a cl level option. I cannot find a browse option as a 'members'.

If I'm wrong please correct me.

Yup, only CLs and CMs are able to upload their own avatars. iVillage did it as a way to thank you the CLs and CMs for their volunteering efforts.

I read that on the Tips & Tricks message board.

Nope, don't have a browse option at all. Maybe it is a CL thing.

Thanks for pointing out the pull-down menu next to the folder title, that way I can look at just today's replies. That should help my perceived 'crowding' of the messages. :)

I really appreciate your positive 'pushes' about these new boards. It helps immensely to have someone keeping perspective.

Big hugs sweetie. Keri
