    I'm sure its something I'm doing wrong, but everytime I jump to a different forum, the posts are not listed from newest to oldest. I'm seeing posts from 2003 on the 1st page. How do I correct this? TIA!

    .....drawing a blank on uploading an Avatar? The media gallery is down from the home VCA site. Is this where there will be a way to upload an Avatar? I also notice the threads don't come up in the order of posting.


    Site looks nice--just need to get used to it. Good work!

    Thanks---Steve

    avatar is easy, just go to User CP and upload it directly from your computer, it is stored on the board automatically.

    I too cannot get the new posts to display properly without manually clicking "Last Post" to sort them.

    I can edit my signature, but I'm limited to 125 characters, which is pretty small. my old one was much larger than that.

    I can't find any way to edit signature, and am now classified as enthusiast vs. owner. Are avatars going to be restricted to members only?

    Thanks,
    Pat

    A feature we need is 'Auto size Pictures' makes the HUGE pictures that people post smaller. Forces a size width so that the text in the posts lines up right.

    we need this. helps a ton

    avatars have always been restricted to viper owners. i believe this policy will remain.

    to download avatars, go to "user cp", then control panel. you will find everything there.

    downlaod avatars there and edit the way you see the posts.

    go to "user cp", then control panel, the edit profile picture. there is a blank in there asking for your vin# in order to be listed as an owner. make sure this area is filled in and it should work.

    we need a count box when editing signature that shows how many characters are left. as you type the # goes down. i spent about 30 minutes trying to edit my sig only to just delete it completly

    that is a good idea. i also think only 125 characters is not enough. 200/300 would be nice.

    Seriously? If you guys want that much in your signatures we can certainly do that - especially since we killed off the signature pictures. Me, I am kind of a minimalist. Anybody remember the guy here that used to post EVERY single car, boat and even his lawnmower?

    Oh yeah, and I am told that even in the user options you can choose not to view signatures at all...

    I personally liked the sig pics, they were small. I just don't understand why people complain about load time for a page, get off dialup and stop complaining.

    didn't have them before, so I won't miss them now.

    good work on the software change.

    Any ideas or suggestions that can help

    I went to my profile and listed my VIN # in the correpsonding blank. Still not able to post atavar. When I go to CP User and click edit Avatar nothing happens and the green dot stays inside the circle that won't let me modify this.

    I BELIEVE you are not able to download an avatar because you are listed as an enthusiast (under A1998) and not an owner. someone correct me if i am wrong. there appears to be TWO blanks to enter a VIN#. be sure your VIN is in both blanks and see if that helps.

    Close, but the reality is that we have decided that we are not going to be adding avatars and signatures for non-VCA Members at this time.

    As you know, this site involves a tremendous amount of time and money to run and we would like to "reward" those that help support it. Pretty simple really. Thanks for your support especially!

    I'm still showing as an owner not a member and when I go to the edit profile under the user CP, the Avatar says do not use an avatar. I cannot get the dot to go away to add my avatar. What should I do?
