Kind of an interesting change, so bear with us while we figure out what all these new levers and knobs and "Do Not Push" buttons do. :D

This thread is also for ideas, suggestions, discoveries and other miscellenia.

Avatars, it would seem, have to be just 75x75 pixels, and, apparently, the only option is round. I'll look into maybe bumping that up, or seeing if we can do at least square, but I think that's systemic to Tapatalk.

Any suggestions for color options or backgrounds?

The current look is fine. I've been fooling around with the user control panel. It's pretty straightforward. One caution, sending notifications by email is on by default. I don't know about others, but that is not something I like. I'll get my notices when I roll in here. Also my old login name is floating around. "clluckk" That'll soon be miles back at the rate this bunch comments.

Hey! We can edit our misspellings!

Looks like we still can't after we post.

I can edit my already-posted stuff, but that might be because I'm the admin. Do you have a "Reply/Edit/Like" bar at the bottom of your post?

doesn't seem to be by default. It may be a setting in config somewhere.

couldn't find a way to turn on editing in posts in config, maybe someone with a better knowledge of this sort of thing would know.

Found the option to enable editing, you ladies and gentlemen now have five minutes to edit after posting. I can change that, but five should be plenty of time to catch mispellings and such. I can't make it "forever editable", it looks like the potential max is 999 minutes. :D

Okay, there's a listing that lets me limit how many smilies are used in a signature, but nothing that shows the smilies themselves, any switch to enable or disable them , etc.

I did find out how to get a header image and/or color profile, but it's 2:00 am and I have a busy day ahead of me. Stand by for experimentation over the next few days. :)
