Thanks to all of you for your feedback so far. I’ve mad a couple changes in response. The forum Button has been replaced with “general discussion” as that is the most active category. I also added a button for “members” so you can more easily find your friends, just click on their avatar. It will take you to their profile and allow you to message from there.
If you upload a custom avatar/ picture be sure and check the middle button “gravatar” to enable it. If you don’t it will just go to your “card” which is what folks will see if they look at your profile.
