Hi!  I notice that several new members do not have profile pictures (avatars) or quit meters.  If you need some help, please let me know.

 

There are some instructions for quit meters (tickers) here.  If you can't get it to work, let me know and I will help.  Same thing with profile pictures!  Just send me a private message.

 

Welcome!


Nancy

^^LIKE^^ Nancy is our go to for all things quit meter/profile pic/signature logos  :)

 

Can I add that even though it's not mandatory, filling out your quit date in your profile helps us see where you are in your quit to better tailor our advice as well as helps us not forget to celebrate your monthaversary :)

Yeah, even if everyone puts their quitdate in their profile..always helps gauge their perspective when they post.

See, I don't like the mandatory quit-date format here, it confuses me on a lot of people.

 

For instance you, Barry.  Did you quit on October 12, or December 10?  (I got the year figured out :D )... So having a meter helps in two ways for me... after I run out of fingers counting months the meter tells me how many :D , and on confusing dates it helps me more.   I mean, I got it down that 2017-02-20 means february 20th...since there aren't 20 months yet....  but I can never remember which comes first.  Wish we could go back to regular US date format which is mm/dd/yy(yy).  That works for me and every on-line form I've filled out over the past 15 years or so.

Pssst! marciem...not everyone is in the US and uses that date format! 😁

But, I’m not advocating for mandatory anything. I was saying I would like to be able to tell when someone had quit, just to have a reference point as to their mindset.

and I'm agreeing with you :) , was mostly making a joke at my lack of math skills but saying that some clue as to quit date is very extremely helpful for us here to assess the stage of the quit and tailor advice to that, as well as advocating tickers as my personal weapon of choice because of my lack of above mentioned math skills and deciphering abilities.

 

(I was here when they made the (arbitrary) decision to go with the current quit-date format.

oh and p.s. there are other quit sites very populated by non-US quitters that allow or use the US format.  Just adding that. :)  )

It confuses me too Marcie, but I rather have the months down to two to chose from than 12. In other words I rather figure out if it's October or December with Barry (it's October btw :) ) than have to go through posts looking for which of the twelve months they quit. And the tickers aren't exactly accurate all the time either :(

G'day
My quit meter will not reset. I've lost it and reset it heaps of times.
Yes I know to copy the txt not the picture.
I don't have a computer on a smart phone so it might just be my view. If I click on the txt it shows me the correct image.
Any thoughts
Chris
