How to update From info under avatar?
Posted by stokesda on Monday, August 07, 2017 1:42 AM

I just moved and was trying to figure out how to update the "from" location under my avatar on the left side. Couldn't find anything in the profile or community settings, but I might have overlooked it.

Can someone please explain how to change that? Thanks in advance.

Gidday Dan,
1) Log in, then left click on Manage Profile that you should see under Stokesda.
2) then, on the new page, left click on Edit Profile.
3) then, on the right side of the page, in the “About section” you will see location, which you should now be able to change.
4) then go back up the page and left click on Save Profile.
Hopefully this is clearer than mud, and of actual help.Surprise

Cheers, the Bear.

No offense to Bear.....but I don't believe You can do that anymore....You can change Your avatar, but adding or changing anything under Your avatar, you cannot, since their last computer software change yrs. ago. Unless of course since I tried last, they fixed it. I wanted to put in where I'm from, but could not......not under My avatar......profile Yes.....

Take Care! Big Smile

EDIT: You can  change your location now.....I stand corrected.....they must have fixed it since the last time I tried.

 You can edit a lot of things under there, but one thing I do NOT see is where it gets your location from. You can still edit a bio, your time zone, message display order, pictures, email settings, pm settings, etc.

Thank you. I've been trying to figure that out for years. Let's see if it worked.

Edit: Indeed it does work.

 Well, my About section is completely blank - but it still shows where I'm from.

Edit: Not that I care that it shows it - I'm not that paranoid. So, not complaining that it does. Besides, it a relatively large area plus I have two vicious attack Pugs that will bit your kneecaps off if you try to take my trains. Or help you carry them away in exchange for treats. Laugh

Ha! That did it! Thanks, Bear, and everyone else who chimed in.

Sorry for the late response, I know it's bad form to post a question on the forum and not follow up. I posted the original question a few days ago and totally forgot about it until now. Been distracted by taking care of other moving-related things in the meantime, like buying a new fridge yesterday. First food, then trains! Big Smile
