I keep hoping someone will explain how to crop the avatar, since it doesn’t seem to be working on my computer. Once we’ve got that figured out, I’m looking forward to engaging in some intelligent conversations about journalism.
Hey Samra, thanks for joining! I’m not sure what happened when you tried to crop the image, but it works best if you use a perfectly square picture, and should work perfect if that picture is 160 x 160 pictures. If you still have trouble and want to email me a pic to jacob at wanewscouncil dott org I’d be happy to get it working for you.
Also, you can mention people across the site by putting the @ sign in front of their username, i.e. @samrajb sends you a default email notification, (you can turn off notifications in your profile settings).
This activity stream is meant for quick conversations and updates, the Forum page is better for topics and threads. Unfortunately we have a crazy influx of spam from underpaid humans overseas that join and post in the Media Ethics group, the other groups are free of spam at the moment so maybe pick a group and post a topic there http://wanewscouncil.org/groups
Thanks again for coming aboard
