Welcome Newbies!
« on: Apr 10, 2006, 11:36:47 AM »
  :D :D :D WELCOME TO GINGERBEER! :D  :D  :D 
                                 

Go on - dip a toe in...
...and then dive right in!

We've all been newbies and speaking for myself, I've never met a more welcoming or friendly bunch.

Just head for the Making Friends and Finding Dates section - find something you like and join in.  If you feel nervous about going to a strange place on your own, ask for a handhold!

Check out the FAQ thread in the section for any queries you may have - or ask a new question there!

Also check this link for how to get going

you need to ensure your image is 90 pixels by 90 pixels. (you can resize in Photoshop, or use www.imageshack.us as you can resize as you upload - may lose some quality this way though)

you then need to upload image onto a site that stores images, such as imageshack above.

then go to your profile, and instead of no pic or personal pic, click below on I have my own pic and insert the url provided when uploaded into the box next to http://

save changes and your avatar should appear

Hey, thanks for the friendly welcomes!

I'm terrible at introductions (no idea what to say!) so will just go and join in a couple of threads. <--- despite encouragement, is still far too reserved for own good  ::)

And yes, this place is highly addictive!
