Wink Hello again

Hi all

I used to post here a while back, and after I came off, was doing well until I suffered a major setback a few years ago due to life events beyond my control. As a result my SA came back with a vengeance, along with severe panic disorder and agoraphobia
So I decided to pop back here to start reading/posting/engaging with likeminded souls, since I remember how much this website helped me
in the past.

Cheers

P.S. Please don’t laugh at the fact that I still have that Santa hat on but am unable to change my avatar pic for some reason ...!!!

Hello Scarlet Diva Welcome back I like the hat, you should keep it. After all, xmas is around the corner now that summer is ending.

Sorry that you are going through some difficult times though.

Thanks for the warm welcome

Hi Lee Aww I’m so glad you remember me, cheers - it was such a long time ago.
Were you posting under a different username or do I just have a really crummy memory? (probably the latter!)

Hi Rocket Spud
December 2007 !!
Time sure does fly.
Most of us had added tinsel/Xmas lights/Santa hats to our avatars - those of us who were feeling Christmassy, that is.

Thank you Tortilla (great username by the way)
I would keep it but I think September is a little early and I’m going to stick out like a sore thumb posting with this stupid hat on.
I just can’t get rid if it, or change pic . Very odd.
I’ll have to see if the mods can help ....

Welcome back, Scarlet

Sorry that things are a real struggle for you at the moment

What sort of error message do you get when you try to change your pic?

Hello Yes, I've had several different usernames including Introverted guy, Intro Guy, I.G., Caribou, etc. I used to be a Mod and then a CoAdmin here. I joined way back on the old board, must be about 23 years ago I think. I remember people like kevcantona, curiousfaerie, etc. Haha.

Thank you biscuits - that is much appreciated

Re: my pic I’m not actually getting any error message.
I’ve successfully uploaded my original avatar (sans stupid hat) but when I check User CP the Santa one is also still there regardless, like it’s somehow stuck and it’s the one that appears when I post.
It’s a veritable mystery.

Oh Intro Guy - of course I remember you!
I was on the old board too (restless minds?) before we migrated to this one - I can still remember some quite convoluted and heated debates on there
And who could possibly forget kevcantona haha. Such a crazy character. We were PM/email buddies for a while. Gosh that really takes me back.
Lovely to see you again

No it was SAUK on the old bboy forum before it moved to this one. You are thinking of a forum that curiousfaerie (Roz) later set up on her own called Random Musings, Restless Minds. I was a member there too. Quite a few other SAUKers also joined it.

Ah yes of course.
I was on Roz’s one too, hence why I got the two forums mixed up. Was such a long time ago. Thanks for clearing that up

How about removing your current one so you don't have one.
Then trying to upload the new one?

I have fixed your avatar for you. Biscuits is right, you changed your profile picture but not your avatar picture. Here's the link to change your avatar pic, should you want to in future.

Thanks for being so helpful, biscuits
Turns out you were right and I was being stupid (nothing new there - my last remaining brain cell is only just managing to hang on for dear life)

I'm now dying to know who you were in the olden days

Thank you for sorting this, Tubbs, you're a superstar
