    I have been gone a while (since March), and my Likes count disappeared, my Avatar disappeared, I can't find my "Friends" list, and I am considered a "newbie" even though I have 10,000 posts.

    How do I get my Personal Settings back?

    Ten Man: Sir, near the top on the right side. Your name. Click there and off you go :)

    Thank you, Neophyte.

    I found the Personal Settings area, but I can not find how to get my old Avatar back. It just wants me to load a new one from my computer files.

    Did the "Friends" category get changed to "Followers?"

    Did our old "Likes" count get erased on some date this year?

    How do I get out of "Newbie" status? That seems a bit odd when I have been a member for over 5 years.

    OK, now my status has been "magically" updated to Evangelist, since I started Posting, again.

    Now, if I can just get my Avatar of Gimli back on here, I'll be good to go!

    You ever read National Lampoon's Bored Of The Rings?

    It was Gimlet, son of Groin in that book.

    Glad to see you back Ten Man. I personally have missed your input here on G&G. Hope all is well with you sir.

    Lots of things have changed here on G&G after Chris' latest software update and you will get some awards of sorts based on likes number of posts etc but I can't explain them all to you. I stumble onto certain features and then promptly forget many of them. LOL Keep asking questions and someone more computer literate than me can probably help you... ;)

    Thanks, ChaZam.

    It's good to be back here.

    I found a picture of Gimli on the web, and got a copy of it to load in my AVATAR space.

    It's not as good as the original picture that used to be on G&G, but it will do until I can get a better one.

    It seems that I have managed to get all my Settings back to some sense of "normal" for me.

    Thanks to all for your help.

    I never saw that one.

    I have always enjoyed National Lampoon's stuff. I'll have to look for it.

    In the mean time, I am reading G&G posts from earlier this year.

    "Bored Of The Rings" was in the Fantasy/SciFi section of my highschool library. I stumbled upon it, loved it, and figured if the satire was this good, the original books must be too! I was right. Been a major Tolkein fan ever since. Now, The Silmarillion can be a tough read, but I liked it too.
    Tenman, if you haven't yet, go into Google, select 'Images', and type 'Gimli'. A LOT of good pics come up.

    I think all the old likes, have permanently gone the way of the Dodo bird.
    But, I will be glad to give you your first like!:nana:
