Frequently Asked Questions:

Possibly related posts:

A list of possibly related posts has been showing up lately at the end of each of my posts. This is a new function that Word Press has added. I have removed this function because it looked like it was added to the post and written by me. Instead, I’ve attached links to other sites that are possibly related in the blog roll for you.

How did I get this picture where my avatar goes:

It’s a new Default Avatar! If you have not added an avatar, cool new avatars will be generated for each user and will be unique to each user name! You will see cute little monsters or a geometric ‘Identicon’.

How to Add an Avatar

You upload your avatar here -> Users -> Your Profile

  1. Click on your user name in the top right corner of the word press screen
  2. Your profile will show up.
  3. Select the image you want to use and upload it and crop it as needed.

That image will appear first in the forum and on the tag pages and then some time later (it can be hours) it will also show on the comments you post on other wordpress.com blogs, provided you are signed in when you leave them.

Do make sure the avatar image you upload is the correct size 128 * 128 pixels square. Do not use an avatar that is transparent. Transparency will render as black.

How to Take and Upload Screen Shots:

Thanks to Sushirox for the following directions on how to take and upload a screen shot!

  1. Look at your keyboard and find the printscreen key. (see picture below)
  2. Press it when you see the picture you want.
  3. Go to paint
  4. Click “edit”
  5. Click “paste”
  6. Cut out the part you want
  7. Paste it to a new document on paint
  8. Upload the picture on photobucket, tinypic or imageshack
  9. Get a link and post it

How to Add a link:

Links must be approved before your post shows up, this is to prevent spamming and links to unrelated websites or sites that I am unable to confirm are safe. If you’re not sure, just add it, I will see it and either approve it or unapprove it.

How to Comment and Navigate the Site:

When you see a post you want to comment on or read other comments, go to the bottom of the post and click ‘comment’.

Click Home to get back to the front page of the blog.
