Don't forget you can choose yourself an avatar by clicking on your profile (top left corner) then click on 'Forum Profile Information' under 'Modify Profile'. We've got plenty to choose from.

Yes thats exactly what is needed  ;D ;D ;D
In a forum where we all have "onlinegamersecretnames" , then our real names, lets put pics up, but not of yourself (good grief no) put an avatar up, so now no one knows your name OR what the heck you look like  ;D ;D ;D
As someone who has desperately and politely tried to put names, to forum names , to faces..for the past six months, I give up hahaha...youre all "Sheila" from now on...
I shall be flogging a nice line in DS balaclavas in the coming weeks, to ensure complete anonymity.
Mine shall be pink camo. Obvs....
 ;D ;D ;D

Ps, jk, and thanks for avatar reminder....

This is number 511 of my unreads  ;D

Unread posts since last visit won't include the ancient ones lol

It *can* be!
As I found out yesterday, if there are no posts on main page to read then you get an option to look at "other" unread posts...

It does seem to list them all!  :)  (And then one can use the "mark as read" option!)   :)

Other forums seem to have the same idea about a nickname but as far as I am concerned it is hard enough to remember people's names without having to attempt to recall their name plus nickname.  So I apologise to anyone who has sufficient brain power to remember my name but I call them Fred when it should be Fiona.  (Suppose that is a bit of an extreme example however).

If you click on the left hand side white banner and click on the" Detecting Scotland .com " text it will give you all the recent posts and even yesterday's posts whether read or not.
Give it a try.
