    There is a way to get a link to our BYC page under our avatar. Go to your profile, then select "edit community profile", scroll down to "My Coop" and paste the link to the page in there.


    It will appear under your avatar with the link titled "My Coop).

    That's awesome, because a lot of members were missing that feature. One more kink crossed off the list. Gets my vote for a spot in the Sticky list added to one of the tutorials or info pages [​IMG]

    Or even better, in the Edit Community Profile area, where it says My Coop.... maybe "(Copy and Paste your Member Page URL here for it to show under your avitar)" can be added on there so it's more obvious to users? I saw that text field, but had no idea what it was for until I saw another user post about it being where you need to paste your member page (which used to be the old My BYC Pages).

    Every time I see one more issue addressed, no matter how minor... I'm just that much more happier with the New BYC (and I'm pretty dang happy with it as it is!). Seriously Mods/Staff... you guys are doing an excellent job, and with such tact and patience. We need some special award badges just for the staff members, cuz you guys have definitely earned them [​IMG]

    Nope, I don't see any pictures either.

    Thanks for the info, Kurtis! What a surprise folks will get when there isn't a single blessed coop on "My Coop" page. [​IMG]

    Just checked your page. The pics that are missing are ones you added there as thumbnails and for some strange reason this new system isn't accessing them like it is full size pictures. This seems to be the reason that pics are missing from many pages right now.
