Hey, try to click on a new member's profile picture

Yes, you can see the profile pictures or avatars of our new members in the upper-left area of the MyEC main page. 

You may find there's no comment on the new member's page if you try to click on a new member's profile picture. That means nobody has visited their page, or at least, nobody has left a comment for them. 

Imagine you are one of the new members or newbies who just signed up to become a member of MyEC. You don't know where to start - you could be so…

Do not use a lot of pictures in a blog…

Your Avatar (profile picture)

Okanagan beach

When you look for friends on MyEC or in other social networks do you check out the grey heads? I don't. I usually skip over people who haven't uploaded an avatar.

I can put a face to a name. Even if you choose a setting or a caricature I will look at your… Continue
