From technology to politics to video games; these are the random thoughts of a geek with too much time on his hands

Reading through some of the answers in the WinCustomize Member Survey, I was surprised to see many didn’t know about the personal  sites that each user can have here.  Any member, subscriber or not, can create their own personal site on WinCustomize with their own personal url.  Personal sites can contain a bunch of information like images, links, guestbook, articles, and much more. 

You can share the page with friends and the public to show off the skins you have created, as your page contains all the skins you have uploaded to WinCustomize. 

Here are a couple of resources to get you started:

Since you are highlighting the photo album function is it working again?  The function had not allowed members to upload pictures for sometime.   A very nice feature if it is now working.

Hey Zoomba, thanx for the info but when following your instructions (at the first click, in fact) I got the following: Sorry, but you must change your nickname in order to create a personal site. Your nickname contains characters which are no longer valid! I didn't want to fool around and create a mess that I'd end up annoying someone at SD tech support with and take who knows what to straighten out. DrJ0622 has invalid characters? Oh well, thanks anyway.

Has FF support been added to uploading to the photo album?

Sorry, but at this time you may only use Internet Explorer to upload new photos.

dr j...it's the space in your name. Personal Sites only support alpha numeric nicks....1-9 a-z had to change mine from @Lantec way back when the sites were introduced.

My first nick here was T.H.

 

Had to change that after the WC rebuild in '07 (was it?)

@Lantec & 2of3: Would changing my 'nick' goof up my registration and OD Ultimate stuff? How does one change one's nickname?

I don't want to cause WC/SD tech support, etc. alot of needless trouble....

btw thanx for the answers.

As far as I know, no...those are tied to your email address, not your nym. You can change it in Stardock Account tab in your account settings.

Dr. J....go to the Wincustomize home page

 

on the right under your name click on settings

 

on the settings page choose the "Stardock Account" tab

 

enter your email address and password and it will bring up a screen where you can change it

 

I'd suggest "bleeding_heart_liberal" ....just kidding try DrJ0622

(Strange...the digicons are MIA...I had to borrow this one from bebi's site)

The photo albums have been broken for at least 6 months or so.

on Oct 23, 2008

And it was a bleeding heart liberal that broke it....bwah-hah-hah.

ps....my new nick is DrJBHL. Thanx, Lantec!

Uploading to the personal photo album using IE 6 works, but still causes IE 7 to crash, at least for me.
