Pam, my apologies, I did read your post and I found the image and then completely forgot to email it to you. Now I have to find it again - hang in there :'( :'(

Perhaps we should 'photoshop' it to add a 'middle finger salute' ;D ;D ;D

Pam, whatever happened to the photo 0f you and another, that I massaged (with Photoshop) for you ? I thought you were going to use that as an avatar.

We, Meg and I never experienced any 'nastiness' from Australia's 'first nation peoples".
If there was ever any 'racist' comments then it more than likely, came from 'local born' ethnic euro Australians. It was always sufficient to 'give as good as you got' to resolve any 'tense' situation. It should be said that in those days (70's and early 80's) it was sufficient to have a beer and a laugh about it and get on with life. ;D ;D

The best 20 quid I ever spent (kids 'transported' free).
I never knew that you actually paid for your passage Martin, and that you weren't aware of the assisted passage scheme. I would have thought that I/we would have mentioned it in our snail mail comms prior to your arrival. I do remember the day you arrived in Adelaide on the Overlander train, ex Melbourne. - Middle of June, we thought it was freezing, (it may have been raining), but and you thought the weather was beautiful.

Hi All, this post is to achieve the same as MR did a couple of days ago ie. Elevate Topic in list. We shouldn't have to keep doing this :-[ :-[ ;D ;D

Also please note the Topic  'Logging in Comments' is no longer sticky - it is currently midway down page 2 - another post will move it up the list to just below the sticky Topics.

Hi Pam, There are Avatar related instructions in my post (on this topic) dated 18/10/21.

There is one change, the text should be as follows:
Login using your 'username' & 'password'
mouse-over 'Profile' then click 'Forum Profile'
Click 'Modify Profile' then in the 'Personalized Picture' section
'Browse' to the required filename (in the Explorer-like window) and select it,
Then Select the 'Upload an Avatar' radio button.

At this stage you can scroll to the bottom right corner of the page and click on 'Change Profile' - You will get a green box indicating successful changes applied.

You can add/change other info as you see fit,  ie. Personal Text; ??Birth date??; ??Location??; ??Gender??; Website title - 208 Signal Squadron; and Website URL - There are two options for the last two items either none or both.

These fields are not mandatory.

Hope this helps. BTW are you going to use the photo that I 'photoshopped' for you?

You will have noticed that this thread is now 'sticky' ie it remains in the top section of the Topic list, so that it does not get lost in amongst all the other Threads/Topics being generated these days.  ;D ;D ;D ;D 8)

Big WELCOME to Steve 'Icey' Iceton.

Steve has successfully navigated our Registration Procedure. More the merrier.
Part of me pities Pam doing the scanning and emailing of images for inclusion in the galleries. (not more than 25MB of attachments per email message, and beware of data limits imposed by email hosts).
Maybe be some education in the generation and transmission of archive (.zip  .rar etc.) files may be appropriate.

All I can suggest, Pam, is Google 'Flickr', in the results page in the first result (it is in my browser) there is a search box 'Search', type David Lawrence, press Enter.

You will be presented with every David Lawrence in the flickr world (there are a lot of DLs in flickr's 110+ million users+) but you never know one of the DL names might 'jump out at you'.

That should keep you busy till New Year. ;D ;D ;D

Thanks for that. This is a major concern. I clearly remember testing this feature along with a test of redirection of email addressed to (the nominated Admin email address) to my normal email address. At this point it gets a bit hazy - The redirection (from the web host to me) worked fine and I actually saved the email, however I do not have a copy of any email sent to me using the MB 'memberlist' email feature.
Why on earth I would keep one email and not the other, dunno folks! So I can't be 100% certain that the feature worked. I have just done another test from the MB, using a test account, to myself. I shall see what transpires Tue 28/12. If I don't get the email, I shall have to contact (web host) to see if there is anything specific, email wise, that needs to be set up, to make the MB email feature operate as advertised at their server. (SMTP numbers, credentials etc.).

Apologies for the confusion caused in the rabid rush to say 'this works, that doesn't work'. In my defense, it's a pretty steep learning curve! :'( :'(
