Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: Avatars

It doesn't really look like they allow this. It seems they only allow us to choose from their stock avatars and nothing else.

 

If anybody has other information, please share it!

You are correct.  They don't allow it. :smileysad:

I'm sure I saw a unique/personal photograph on the board somewhere.  I remember thinking, "how did she do that?"  I'll have to look for it again.

Hmm...well, if you find it, definitely let me know.  We;ve been asking for this functionality for a really long time and were always just told it wasn't allowed.

I can't even figure out how you guys are doing avatars at all! I've looked all over and can't find them...

Click on your name there above your missing avatar.  Click on "See My B&N Profile."  Click on "Change avatar."

Some of the BN avatars they give you to pick from aren't very imaginative, plus there's too many people with the same one.  This one would be much more fun.

As a kid I always had a REAL crush on PolyPurebread, his girlfriend!

For some reason she seemed so much more REAL and sexy when I was younger! LOL
