How to get access to the Chatroom

Post by aidothedado » Thu Jul 09, 2009 7:38 am

Hi Everyone

Here on HTUK you lot love to talk (look at the post count here http://www.hardytropicals.co.uk/forum/#wrapfooter) so there was a chatroom setup which you can get to here or by clicking chatroom from the menu bar at the top of the page. If you would like to see if there is anyone in the chatroom without all the logging in time if you click the (users) link next to chatroom it will show you how many people are currently in the chatroom.

Now before you go clicking the link if your new here you'll need to request access to it, it doesn't take long :D .

1. Please check you have posted on the forum more than 10 times. This is so we get to know who you are a bit before we let you loose :D.
2. Login to the registration area here and login using your forum username and password.
3. Displayed in front of you will be a screen looking like this
Untitled-1.gif
Untitled-1.gif (8.79 KiB) Viewed 7571 times
Simply click the link under Chatroom
5. A message will then be sent to the moderators. Once they have accepted the request you willrecieve an e-mail l saying you've been accepted at which point you can go to the address mentioned above and chat away.

p.s. if you can't login to the registration area for any reason, firstly try the 'forgot password' link which will send you an e-mail with a link which will ask you for your new password, it that doesn't work for whatever reason then PM me and i'll sort it out :D .

uploading an avatar

Post by themes » Thu Jul 09, 2009 10:37 am

A few people were having difficulty doing this. Just a quick guide. Follow the pink Links
step1.jpg
Click on user control panel in the forum index
step2.jpg
click profile
step3.jpg
click on edit avatar
step4.jpg
click on browse and select where the pic is. It says 64 by 64 pixels so make sure you resize the pic or you will be having problems. I use photoshop.

That should be it

Please do not have avatars that are too flashy as they become very distracting.

If the image is larger than 100px x 100px in height or width, or larger than 25kb it will not be uploaded. To reduce the size of an image please see this website http://www.shrinkpictures.com/create-avatar/ (thanks to Grub for this link) **

Birthdays

Post by aidothedado » Thu Jul 23, 2009 9:37 am

Member Birthday Congratulations should be posted in the Off Topic Forum. This is for a few reasons.
1) - it is Off Topic
2) - it is relevant to members only
3) - It could allow identity theft if the info was to get into the wrong hands.

The birthday bar in the Board Index, which is where members are seeing the member birthday advertised, is only visible to logged in members, and only becomes public knowledge once someone has posted a topic on the Main Forum. :roll:

Please if starting this type of topic, create it in the Off Topic area, or it will be moved by Moderators. :wink:

There is a link to Tropical Pete's Places of interest map. This is located just below the weather tab. This will enable you to go to the map from anywhere within the forum.
