I had to go to the old board and copy my clip art from my profile and add it to my new profile.
I was also able to get an avatar added (my flag).
The other thing I had to go was edit some of my preferences...it is under user cp (control panel) under edit options.
There is an option of recieving e-mails when someone replies to a post you have posted on. It took me a while to figure out how to stop them.
