Okay, I am brand new to the boards (although I have been watching and reading you guys for a while...grin). This is actually my second post though.<br><br><br><br>
So a little on my eating history: I became a strict vegetarian when I turned 21. However, before that, starting in high school, I ate meat less and less; it just started to really turn me off. The more I read about alternatives, the more I came across health benefits as well, not to mention enviromental issues and such. The whole experience has been a great journey with many great finds. I am now approaching my 25th <sigh> birthday and the more I think about what I eat and how it effects animals and the earth, I want to become Vegan.<br><br><br><br>
This is where you guys come in. You all will be my support and you will be here for me to ask any dumb questions and to listen to me rant and rave, right? Okay, well thanks in advance.<br><br><br><br>
My first rant is: My only local restaraunt (which only serves lunch) and is part of a "all natural food store" sells a few products that aren't Vegan. I always thought of this place as a safe haven, a place where I wouldn't have to read the ingredient labels. This is not the case <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":mad:"> . The products they offer that aren't vegan are, however, minimal: like a few products with egg whites, oh and they do have a lot of products with honey. I just wish if they have gone to the exstent (sp?) that they have, then they should go all or nothing. Don't mess around with any non-vegan products.<br><br><br><br>
Now for my first dumb question: How do I make a little picture appear with my posts (you know, the one underneath your name)?<br><br><br><br>
Well thanks to all...<br><br><br><br>
Darin

<span style="font-size:x-large;">WELCOME!!!</span> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
Go to CP seen at top of most of the VB pages >>><br><br>
Go to Edit Options... and just choose how you will upload. Most likey using the UPLOAD method probably as thats the only one<br><br>
I know of! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> This means you will be uploading your own avatar.<br><br>
It has to be 75x75 pixels each way (or under).<br><br><br><br>
If you need any more help, just shout someone, or wait until I can instruct more fully... I have the key to unlock VB somewhere,<br><br>
but I think I swallowed it. <gulp> seriously I should have written<br><br>
somewhere a prologue of how it works... (Yip, I'm trying to make<br><br>
dumbliness sound like an artform, how am I doing?). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I'm glad to know you, Darin. Welcome to VeggieBoards. Do watch out for those natural food stores. Most of them are owned by omni's.

Welcome to the boards!! I have yet to find an all-vegan store. I think it is just the plight of the vegan to have to read labels all the time.<br><br><br><br>
In answer to your question, yes, we will be here for support and to answer your questions. The people on here are really cool and I learn something new every day.

Okay, thanks for your help with the photo so far. I have uploaded the photo into my gallery with the correct pixels. But how do I make it appear with my posts? Thanks.

Oops, it doesn't go in the gallery. I removed the smaller one. You have to click the user CP link at the top, then go into edit options, then scroll down to the bottom and add it there. I'll go ahead and add it for you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
There... is that ok?
