I've been here for a couple of years now. During that time I've messaged and interacted with a great many of you, both editors, moderators and general members.

We all, or most of us, have an avatar, but what do we really look like? Is there anywhere within funtrivia where members can actually put a name to a face? If not, I think there should be! I'd like to see what my fellow team members look like and I'd also like to be able to put a face to a name when I submit a quiz to an editor...

It might be fun!

Years ago, we had a scrapbook where some members sent photos. Check here.

It may be time to update! grin

Never knew that existed until now! Great idea. I agree, it is nice to see some faces behind the names

I see no need to update at all, Clara Sue. I look so young!

We have a bit of a get-together in Sydney this weekend. I will try to grab a few more happy snaps.

I wouldn't mind a forum category where we can post pictures of ourselves. I've been on this site off and on for about 10 years, and I don't think anyone knows what I look like. :P

Plus, I'd like to see what other members look like. Maybe someone out there has a doppelgänger nobody knows about. Haha.

live4trivia you can always put your photo as your avatar in the forums, you don't need to be a gold member or anything like that. My avatar is me, Ren's is her.

This is true! I will work on making one for myself. I like yours by the way! smile

In the meantime, are we allowed to give Photobucket links on the foru? I have forgotten the rules and don't want to do something wrong. :I

We set up a photobucket account for our team so we could exchange photos of things of interest, as a repository of our avatar images and to post pix of ourselves. You'd be surprised how many would rather remain anonymous, without their real faces known and be tied to the image they use as an avatar when thought of here. People just love to escape!

Thank you Sue! I did resize it, and my avatar looks better now. :P

I can understand people wanting to remain anonymous. I had an incident a few years ago. I was on a social site, someone stole my pictures. They claimed they were me, and even put my pictures on a porn site. ;o

I reported this person, and now everytime I put pictures of myself on the internet - I watermark them. smile My avatar is now of myself, watermarked and all. Haha.

Wow, good to see you at last, it's only been about 9 years! My full picture is on quizzyland, here I can just be seen standing in for Data on the bridge with Picard next to me and Worf in the background. Besides being a massive fan, having sat in the theatre in front of Patrick Stewart I found this a fitting tribute.

And I definitely prefer to remain anonymous. My avatars are a photo I took of my alter ego - Lottie the elephant!

I know right? XP During these past 9 years I've cycled through a number of other online forums, but I keep coming back to FT! I've been wondering whatever happened to some other members I use to talk to here as well. Does FT have that chatroom anymore?

I like your picture too! Although for a second I forgot where Quizzyland was. *facepalm* And your forum avatar is sweet as well - you can't really go wrong with Star Trek. laugh

Only applicable to Gold Members I believe - rank & file not entitled?

In the FT Quizzyland area, Gold is needed to present your own avatar.
In the Forums area, everyone can upload an avatar.
You can take off the paperbag here.
This reply is from a non-admin/moderator but I think it holds true.
The sizing rules are different here too.

Cant find any way to do that, not being a computer genius - so "If I first you don't succeed - give up", prevails as patience has never been one of my more noticeable virtues.

C30, go to My Stuff at the top of the screen, then Edit Profile from the list, then scroll down and you will see the option to add an avatar. You can either use one of your own or can use a stock avatar.
