For those who love hand made lace.
Some of our members have had trouble putting up a photo to represent themselves. The way to do it is described in the NOTE called PHOTOS, and is in paragraph section 5 about 2/3 down the page. But I'll repeat it here.
To put up a photo to represent yourself:
Go to the box in the right hand column with your name on it. Click on SETTINGS.
That takes you to a new page. The center column are all the things you can edit in your profile.
Your photo-avatar is the first item.
Click on BROWSE.
Find a jpg or gif file from your computer, select it,
Go to the bottom of the page, click on SAVE.
Sometimes you may have to wait a bit if you are trying to do this at a busy time of day on the internet. My statistical program tells me that 10 am to 4 pm is when most internet traffic occurs. Uploading photos will go faster early in the morning or very late at night.
Just a note to add.
When I first joined I was very impatient to get everything up and running and I'm pretty used to doing things like uploading profile photos, but when I went to upload my profile photo in settings, the "browse" button was not available. I tried a couple of hours later, and there, magically, was the "browse" button.....easy peasy!
So, the moral of the story is, give the site time to load all the settings!
Smart lady! And hit the "refresh" button occasionally, so that data uploaded in the last few minutes appears on your screen.
