First off, you have to load image up to and image hosting site. I use AOL, but some use Photo Bucket and some others.

Once you load image on to the internet, you want to go into album ad find a sample image (smaller the better for your avatar). Once you find it, right click image and scroll down to “properties” . It should be at the very bottom of list. Click on that and the find:

Address:

(URL)

When you find this in this little gray screen, right click address and click in select all. When URL address is high lighted in blue, right click it again and select copy.

Now, go back on FM and enter your “My Home” area. It should be right in the middle of page before you scroll down any forum list, in a green bar and to the right on your screen name. Once inside you have entered My Home area, scroll down and find the “Personal information, email, password, etc.” and click the Edit link to the right of this. Now scroll down to use my avatar and paste the URL address into slot and click on the little round dot to use this avatar. Ten scroll down and hit submit.

I see where your problems lies. Due to forum repairs and construction, the personal avatar option in not available at the current moment.

Once you have done it a couple times, it only takes minutes from when you load image into your computer. It seems like alot of loops, but its easier done than written.

I am sure it will be open in a week or two.

      I may get a big ration of doodoo for this post, but here goes.  As a business owner (not food related) I guess I'm a bit confused by all of these negative posts.  The new owners (remember, they invested their money in the place) have evidently decided on a business model that they feel will work for them to be profitable.  I don't know them, don't know what their background or experience is, and it really doesn't matter.  It's their business, so they get to do with it whatever they choose.  If their model doesn't work, it stands to reason that they'll change their model, but that is entirely up to them.  There's likely a reason that the ownership of The Landing has changed several times in the last decade.  Trying to drive these owners out of business won't bring back 1980's priced cheap food and drink.   There are lots of places in many towns and cities that I choose not to eat at or visit because I don't want to pay the prices they charge.  But I don't go on the Internet and demean the owners and their places of business because I choose not to buy from them.  I'm a few times a year visitor to The Landing, and it is generally for lunch off the lake.  If I thought it was too expensive I simply wouldn't go back.  Vote with your dollars, not your posts on this forum.  Get a Trip Advisor or Yelp account and post a review if it's that important for you to vent.   The alternative for all of you of course, is that if anyone else has a model where they can charge half as much and still make a profit (not likely), well maybe that person ought to buy The Landing and give us all cheap food and drink.  We'll line up at the dock for you.  It's the old "put your money where your mouth is" adage.  The fact is, most of the old favorite local establishments you talk about have been in the same family for years or generations, and the owners make a living because of low overhead.  Someone investing in a new venture has lots to pay for, and as you all know, owning anything on a lake, and especially on Vermilion in Greenwood Township, is not a low-cost endeavor.   Let's support those who choose to invest in these expensive pieces of real estate on our lake (or at least not disparage them in these posts), and help them to keep them open.  Time to forget about getting $1 tap beers and $2.50 hamburgers, when the owners have to pay 2017 overhead costs.  Guys, the 80's want their lunch tab back.
