I have managed to set my avatar on many other forums, but I don't see "My Account" anywhere. What are you calling the "Home Page"?

The steps have changed since they were posted.

 

Click this link to go to the Account Settings page: https://www.geocaching.com/account/settings/profile

 

Here's what the page looks like, and you can also access it by clicking the little drop-down arrow at the top of most pages on Geocaching.com. Click "Browse" and choose a new profile photo (forum avatar photo):

Save that, and then log out of the Forum, then log back in.

Testing 1,2,3 Looks like it worked, thanks!

 

It might not hurt to update the instructions :-)

hello world :grin:

 

Might be missing something. These forums do grab the signature info from the Profile Information page of geocaching.com, right? (testing...)

This is not an avatar test, but this seemed like a reasonable place to test a glitch in the forum software.

So much for that theory. The replies appear in the order they were posted, not in the order they were started.

Well, dang! But you didn't quote the first one in the second one, so there's still a little room for me to be kinda right....

I'm not sure I can really simulate this as a single user responding to himself, but I'll try it.
