Yeah, no, seriously........so it's weird, I come here to myLot, and the funny thing is I can't see the little pencil thingy to start a new discussion. So what I have to do is shrink my screen to 90%.......THEN I can click on the pencil. But wait! That's not all.......I keep seeing "So-and-so is following you"......cool.........but when I click on somebody's profile page..........remember back in the day when we could customize our profile pages with graphics and cool pictures and stuff?........sorry........I digress........when I click on somebody's profile I don't see any link to follow them, or be their friend, or hook up or whatever. What am I doing wrong? Have I forgotten how to computer? And before somebody screams "TURN YOUR AD-BLOCK OFF DUMMY!"....It's off.........I'm looking at a Jimmy Dean Pancakes & Sausage ad right now. I don't know...........Remember when they had Categories up at the top and you could pick what you wanted to talk about and there was pictures of puppies and rainbows and.............anyways, I don't know what I'm doing wrong.......I wish I could click on stuff. Anyways, I included a picture of the corner of my screen, where the pencil thingy should be, before I shrink it to 90%

Yes, it is a screen resolution issue. If you are using a browser with a zoom feature, zoom out a level or 2.

Hi, Sconi! Can't remember how we do this thang ... and when I look back at stuff I allegedly wrote, I can't remember even BEING that person! It's very strange - like peeking into another person's life. Maybe someone was pretending to be me ... go figure. x

Look, we are all trying to figure this thing out. I might have to ask the Mylot unofficial administrator, Some Guy Typing to find out how to add a picture.

I would love to be able to advise you but all I know is the pencil in the top right corner allows you to write a discussion. I am so lost!

I don't i just got back, maybe they're still working on some few bugs on this site now that people have started coming back.in fact, i haven't tried uploading pictures yet. I can't tell you how to navigate, but i could tell it's a lot easier now than before.
