Lost & Found Forums
Thank you all for your bearing with us and having as much patience as you possibly could, we've FINALLY gotten the 2011 Lost & Found forums set up. Separate sections to post something lost as well as something found, and in a number of categories (see below).

  • Bags (Backpacks, Camelbaks, Handbags, Luggage)
  • Bikes
  • Clothing
  • Equipment & Tools
  • Eyewear (Glasses, Sunglasses, Goggles)
  • Gadgets (Cameras, Phones, MP3 Players)
  • Humans
  • ID (Drivers Licenses, Passports, Wallets, Purses)
  • Jewelry
  • Keys
  • Other/Misc.

Spread the word, let other burners know. Here's a handy shortened URL for all your social networking needs: http://bit.ly/BM2011LnF

Avatars
Effective immediately, we've increased the size of your avatar (user pic) from 80x80 pixels to 150x150 pixels! The file limit is still 256K, but that shouldn't be a problem for most JPG pictures with reasonable compression. The pictures won't enlarge, so to take advantage of it you need to upload a larger sized pic.

To upload a larger pic:
  • Slice and dice a pic up to 150x150 pixels and 256K using your favorite image editing program.
  • Click on 'User Control Panel' (top left of the screen)
  • Click on the 'Profile' tab (right next to Overview)
  • Click on the 'Edit Avatar' button.
  • Choose your file and then click 'Submit' to upload.

Once the picture's been uploaded, it'll show on all your posts on ePlaya.

Cheers!
