How do you add a profile image ???


I believe it comes from your eBay feedback page... go to your eBay "My World" page to add your profile image.

 

 

ive no idea how to quote, so, you just do the copy and paste thing now?

 

 

also, is there a way to click onto the last post read?

 

 

 

btw, thx for the tip on the avis, want to square mine off

To quote, click on the big blue Quote link that's above the Reply text-entry box, on the right, next to the Spell Check button.

 

The option to go to the first new post is in:

 

My Settings, Preferences, Linear Layout, "Jump to first unread post in a topic."

 

Its behavior seems inconsistent, but that might just be in topics (which I can't stop calling "threads") that I had read before I set up the option.

Regarding the "Jump to first unread post in a topic" preference... is it working correctly?

If I have unread posts in a topic, it works fine... clicking on the topic title will position me at the first unread post.

If I have no unread posts in a topic, it does not work correctly... clicking on the topic title will position me at the first post on the first page when it should position me at the last post on the last page.

Would it be better to have the preference jump to the last read post in a topic?

The new format? Doesn't like it very much. Haven't been here since the first day. I went to the .com boards instead. I guess it will take some time to get used to it.... As someone here mentioned, I really don't like the emoticons either. Too complicated to type. :-(

Considering that the previous format, still at the main ebay site, is hideous and awful, this new layout is luxury. Still, I'd like to be able to change the background colour from white to anything. I just don't like staring at white. I get too aware of my eyeball defects.

I liked the old forums eBay US had a few years ago. The colors were softer. All this gray and white stinks. And there are too many gadget thingys.

What's wrong with just having one font in black 14pt, the ability to add photos with a 250 kb limit, add a link, and have B I U. No siggies, either. People could get their point across, the pages would load faster, and there'd be less that could go wrong.

And these new emoticons--P.U.!! Cat Indifferent Man Indifferent Robot Indifferent Smiley Indifferent Woman Indifferent

this format may be slightly better than the most recent look

 

But it was much better before that

What I miss is being able to see the poster's "experience".

I would answer a question much differently for someone who just found eBay than for someone who bought Pierre's first Pez dispenser.

Also when a poster is asking about his listings, I find it a chore to find his listings (I've been pasting names into Advanced Search -Seller, then going to the feedback page and checking out FB as a Seller and then See Listings. Is there a better way?)

But of course, the most important reason for having the old identifiers is that I am nosy. Deal with it.

Okay this is peculiar.

I opened another window under another ID (I also post as reallynicestamps, which is no secret) and posted a reply while this window was still open. My purpose, besides lending a helping hand to a confused newbie with my great wisdom, was to find out if my other icon was showing up.

Oddly, although the other window was open to the alternate ID, my answer posted as femmefan1946.

Cluttered in the user box. 

 

Spoiler
What is this? Spoiler tag? Interesting. 

 

I'm taking a screen shot after I post to show how cluttered the same post looks in the new format, as opposed to the former format.

That success button is going to get annoying. Does it show up after every new post?
