Icons in TR user box

By gralfus ·
I notice that there are now icons used in the user identification block when posting to TR. Are these configurable? I assume they are since many have different icons. I looked in My Account, but didn't see anything. Didn't find anything in a search of the forums either.

here's my denial

by gralfus In reply to but you know i was right

I deny it! So there. Actually I tried to fiddle with the icon, but until the profile was made active, the "view complete profile" link and the icon were dead. Once I followed the directions to the "Peer Directory" (which was a non-intuitive name to get at a profile), I made the profile active and then I was able to change the icon. Not that I have changed it, but at least I can now...

It's in your profile

by maxwell edison In reply to Icons in TR user box

View your own profile. In that profile page, there's a new feature that allows you to attach a photo via http link. Be sure to show your good side.

I can view your profile, but not mine

by gralfus In reply to It's in your profile

I finally found that I can get to my profile by going to the "Peer Directory" using someone elses profile to begin with. My links were dead since I didn't have a profile, thus my original post. I expected there to be a link to the profile under "My Account", but there isn't one.

We're working on it

by Jay Garmon Contributor In reply to I can view your profile, ...

Expect your profile to get far more accessible in the coming weeks. In the meantime, I encourage everyone to to go to the Peer Directory (http://techrepublic.com.com/5221-6257-0.html), click on EDIT MY LISTING, input a path to a published Web image in the displayed field, then scroll down to the bottom and select "Please display my listing in the peer directory" as a Participation option. Then, just click UPDATE MY LISTING. This will give you signature a photo icon, and will allow you to access your listing from message threads.

Well if people completed profiles to begin with

by Oz_Media In reply to We're working on it

And then made them active for welcoming peer contact it wouldn't be an issue.

It's just cutting corners, saving time and a fear o having a peer contact you that causes these issues.

I know the problem you are referring to though, I think in this case the peer simply didn't have an active link due to not turning on peer contact though.

I figured you guys had this in the works, but I didn't know how far along you were. I'm glad you chimed in to clear things up.

Generic

by Oz_Media In reply to Icons in TR user box

Actually, since TR is a global community, they have decided to implement the faceless man/woman to represent all users and remove any predjudices.

Go to your user preferences and select Edit, you will see a window where you can enter a 45 X 60 image.


WARNING: The image is NOT uploaded to TR, it is simply linked to the hosting URL. You may want to use a host other than your own server or account.

I used http://www.picturetrail.com/ , they don't seem to mind people linking to the albums there. In fact they will even offer you source code for a link in Yahoo user groups.
