    Is this where you complain about the registration process and how difficult it is to see the text they want you to type?

    How do you insert an avatar?

    Hi, you can add an avatar after you've been around the site a little. There's a few restrictions on new registrations, which cuts down on spammers greatly. Not that you're a spammer!

    I don't know what happened with not being able to see the text - are you talking about the colors?

    Thanks for the info Hep about the avatars.

    When you register you have to type in the text as written in the box to make sure you arent a spammer or sumptin. Anyway, the letters and numbers are so squiggly/out of proportion you cant tell what they are, and it took me 4 tries.

    Honest.

    UGet, that's to prevent "bots" from registering. Some people out there have scripts that just go register at forum sites and are programmed to spam multiple forums. The text thing prevents that. But I am able to change fonts, and maybe I'll see what I can do. I haven't played much with that system.
