Let's See Yer Smiling Mugs

OK, so I just dropped in some new functionality. Some of it is a bit experimental, so please let me know if you encounter any probs. The main things are:

• Profile Pics — Upload a pic of yourself and it'll accompany you around the site. As the end result is cropped square, those images will result in better looking profile pics.

• Picture Uploading — In general, you can upload pics to your account using the 'Upload Picture' links in the member area, or anywhere you'd regular post text (lesson, messages, et al). These pics are then available to you throughout the site.

• MP3 Uploading — You can now self-publish your own MP3s. Just upload it in the member area, tell us what gear you used, and some info about the song, set it to 'Published' and there ya go. Playback buttons accompany it everywhere on the site, so it makes for sweet listening in a variety of places.

• Commenting — You can now comment on most anything on the site, including lessons, pix, mp3s, news, videos, articles. You can include pix, chords, scales, et al in your comments, and it threads similar to Fretbuzz.

• The member area now contains a rolling feed of everything that happens on the site, so you can keep track of all new activity at a glance.

There's probably more stuff, but I'm getting tired of typing, so I'll let you all discover it at your own pace.

Let me know how it goes.

Looking good!

There's actually two kinds o' pics -- profile pics, which accompany your name and member points throughout the site; and your uploaded pics (maybe I should call this one's gallery), which you can include whenever you post something.

You can only have one profile pic at any time. In the gallery, as many as ya like. For ex, I published a pic of a Pigtronix pedal last night, and if I wanted to reference it here, I could use the Insert Picture tool to put it in like so:

Happiness is marrying a guitarist, Way easier to justify those purchases! No having to explain why you need a guitar, more like having to explain why you didn't get one for her too. It gets expensive!

Ha. That's not even all the guitars. Between my wife and I, we have 32 of them. It gets a little crazy with guitars everywhere, but it's a good problem to have. asset-m-21_7AABABBFACD84056B4CD95EF14094

The most I had at one time was maybe 11 in total.....I'm down to 7 now....if I buy any more, my GF will have my head on a stick...OR my check will bounce?...or a combination of both! LOL

My GF just doesn't understand the affliction with guitar collecting...

"Isn't one enough?"

Uh......NO!

Yeah I hit post and then realised I had left the LOL out of the post and could not edit it.

I know it was a cheap shot bro. Just a joke.
