Re: Alert - Anangel Sailor

Haven't really thought of arrivals/departures yet as I don't have any access to the information that Tony Cannon provided on the old Clydesite. Talking of which - does any know if Tony has joined here? I could create a sub-forum if it's felt it would help.

Go to your User Control Panel > Profile > Edit Avatar. Choose a picture that's been resized to a max of 90 x 90pixels, and is less than 60k in size, and upload. It should work with that. Any problems, let me know.
