Welcome to the Tecchie page.
Here's where we hope you will find an answer to FAQ & a little help when you first arrive
Your Profile Page
On your profile page which you find in the "User Control Panel" (top left hand of the Board Index just under Board Index) you can tell everyone else a bit about you. You can put a link to your site or another page..add friends, direct message and email other members.. it's pretty cool. You can also upload your own "avatar"
Has to be a certain size.. i.e. not more than 90 x 90 ..... you can easily resize your photo using pic resize here:
It's free and you don't have to join anything. Most people find they have to reduce the photo they want to use for their Avatar.
Just a suggestion... it might be an idea to use a photo that is actually not Colin or Bradley.. otherwise there will be so many Colins and Bradleys it might be a bit confusing!!!!!
You can add friends in your User Control Panel
You can message other members privately in direct messages
