Hello Everyone,
Please know that you can now update your FGM avatar and user message info box to show your PBEM attributes. Go into your personal profile and select personal details to choose "game turns" and "availability" from a radio button list. Once you update and save, it will display on your main profile for others to see. As major life changes affect your play rate availability (things like birthing triplets, winning the Lotto, 80 hour work week assignments, and such), you can update this information at will. To add/update your PBEM turn rate information:

1) Go to your User Call-sign drop down on the menu bar below the FGM graphic at the top of every FGM page. In this example, your forum ID should appear where this image shows "Badger73". Hover your cursor above your own Forum Name.


2) In the profile pop up which appears when you hovered your cursor, click on "Your Profile Page" near the top of that pop-up.


3) Scroll down past your avatar, date of birth, and location/occupation displays where you should see.

4) Click the radio buttons to choose your attributes
5) Then scroll to bottom of your profile page and click the blue "save changes" button.

When done, your ruggedly handsome avatars should display your PBEM information like these,

Post any problems or questions here in this thread. Good luck and good gaming!

However I cannot see yours. I imagine that is the most important thing. If I click on your name in the thread above the little popup window does not show that information and if I click on the profile link it is not there either.

I am using the Xenforo Default Style because I don't do Goth :) - just in case that makes a difference.

Yep that was the problem. Switching to Goth mode lets me see them. Back to Normal mode and I cannot see anyone's again.

Sigh. It might be time to invest in a major update to CSS overrides and instead of starting with the normal view and condensing it I'll start with Goth mode and clean off all that black make up first.

:D

LOL awesome pic. Yeah you Goth types can see the update but I cannot. It's my own fault for not conforming. It is just another reason to not conform using a different technique. :)
