Hi all

Introduce yourself here!

Hi all

Postby Student of Sophia » 02 Aug 2009, 02:41

Hey, glad to be here. 8-)

Anyone from http://www.freeratio.org//index.php here? I'm fairly active in their new 'pseudoscience' section, which they made just for lil ol me because I was making too many pesky parapsychological threads in their science section *gasp*. Naturally they viewed that as sort of sacrilege....how dare I pollute their 'real' science section with such 'woo'.

Saw Leo's thread there about this site and I figured I better join up. Strength in numbers.

Welcome Student of Sophia,

I know how it is when you are on a forum with everyone opposed to your beliefs and position. It can be draining after a while. We all need to hang around people who uplift us and add to our energy, not with those who drain us and demean us.

So who is Sophia? Is she a great philosopher or someone in history?

Thanks for the welcome guys.

Sophia is greek for 'wisdom', and is the Goddess of the Bible also known as the Holy Spirit.

BTW Sophia, so where are you from? Are you male or female?

Vinny, is it important whether someone is male or female? If so, maybe you can set up an avatar for each name?

I thought there were already avatars built into the system? Let me check on that. I'll see what I can do. I am new with phpBB3.

Even if there aren't built in default avatars, you can always upload your own in your user cp profile.

Ok it looks like the avatar feature in the profiles were disabled. I went into the admin panel and enabled them. So you can now upload your own avatars or link them to an image URL. I've raised the file size to 100,000 bytes, which I think is 100k, and 100 pixels height and width, to lighten up the restrictions on avatar sizes.

To upload or link your own avatar, go to "User Control Panel" at the top, then click the Profile tab, then click "Edit Avatar", and follow the instructions.

I will soon be uploading avatar packs in the forum gallery so you can choose from there too. I will let you all know when that's done.

Thanks,
Vinstonas

Ok I've uploaded some avatar packs into the forum gallery. To access them, follow the instructions above to get to the Avatar configuration screen of your profile in the UCP. Then at the bottom you will see a button that says "Display Gallery". Click on that and it will show you the galleries of avatars available for you to select. To toggle between galleries, select them at the top and then click "Go".
