For anyone else who asks about that, you have to be a member for a certain amount of time before it shows up.

You have to be a member for 2 weeks and need to have 50 points before you can have a signature and profile message.

If you have it uploaded to Photobucket or any other image/file uploading site, I can try to resize it for you.

Up at the top left of the screen, you will see your username. Directly beneath that, you will see a link that says My Account.. Click on this link, it will take you to a page where you can change all sorts of preferences. The second link is Edit Personal Information.Click this link, the second box from the top will have the bolded word Signature: before it. Type in your signature, and click Update Account, and you are done.

To put in your personal message:
Follow the above instructions to get to your Edit Personal Information screen. The first box will have the bolded words Personal Message: next to it. Type in your personal message and click Update Account, and you are done.

In my personal info page, there is no Signature or Personal message field. Do I have to wait a few days? Please reply!

Yes, you have to wait. It will appear on its own when you've been here long enough.

First click on "my account" at the top of the page. Then click on "Edit Personal Information".

You will need to upload your avatar to braingle using this form. To do this, you must have your avatar as an image somewhere on your computer. If have a url for your avatar, you must download it to your computer first, and then upload it to braingle.

Once you change your avatar, you may need to refresh your web browser or empty your browsers cache to see your new avatar.

This information was copied from the FAQ listed at the bottom of the page. For those who have avatars that are larger than 100x100 pixels, they will need to be downsized. I have all my work on Photobucket and they do have a Sizer there, however, if you don't have access to one of the programs that has an adjuster perhaps asking one of the mods to size it for you, at least would get you started with the picture you wish to use. In time you will learn how to do this and which programs are available for that job. I hope this will answer both questions for the new people above.

Welcome to Braingle, look around, enjoy yourself and you, I am sure, will make many new friends. Enjoy yourselves. And if you still have questions please don't be afraid to ask. Sometimes I don't get everything people want, but I want them to know we have a friendly bunch around here.

The sound of the wild, but if there is no one there, does anyone hear their howls?
