    Love it so far!
    It helps that I got quick answers to my two questions

    One about the missing avatars...
    And two about seeing sent private messages!

    I like the new look, soon we won't remember anything else!

    Cheers

    I'm new on this site and can't figure out where to go to ask questions. This is a very confusing web site. Can someone help me to get started?

    Hi dar6509

    Right here is where you can ask questions about how the website works. If you have question about a specific cancer you need to go to the forum which deals with the cancer you are concerned about. There is a general cancer forum as well were you can also ask your questions about any treatment issues or even personal issues you may be facing.

    I hope that is some help to you.
    Good Luck

    RULE NUMBER 1.....Don't Panic
    RULE NUMBER 2..... Don't forget rule Number 1

    Great moments often catch us unaware-beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one.

    I may not have gone where I intended to go,
    but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

    I've just come back after a long absence. The new forum looks great. My only problem is my profile won't let me edit mi signature. What am I missing?

    Thanks,

    I just registered to this forum, can't tell if it's still active, but if it is, could someone please tell me how to add my own avatar? All I can see is options for avatars of ribbons and cartoon characters; but no place to upload my own display picture - even though I see many users have their own ? Thank you

    Daydreamer -right click where your avatar should be a list will come up and you can go to browse for your own photos- select and it should download. Thats how I did it anyway-good luck

    Hi, tried the right clicking, all I got was a list of where I could copy the image to, etc. Only avatar I can load are the ones offered on this site. Not a big deal, I know, but just wondering if there is a rule or something that you have to be a member for so long to use your own ? Thanks. ^^
