    I've taken in two new torts and we had to put down one of our cats. I'm trying to figure out how to change my signature.

    About the titles, just so everyone else knows; this will happen for everyone. Think of 'New Member' as default. Once you log in, the server will update your stats. It might not be instantaneous but it will. If you look at the members page, everyone who hasn't logged in has 0 points and are new members but both will be updated when they log in.

    Apps will be updated ASAP. I won't leave you all hanging - I promise. I'm waiting for an update from our app developer, Tapatalk.
    In the meantime, you should be able to access the mobile-friendly and tablet-friendly full-site from your browser.

    It worked as a web page/site. Not through a App. I deleted old link and Google the "Tortoise Forum" again, then here it is in new format.

    Working perfectly.

    I need to make changes to my signature line. When I did, I hit save changes and got a pop up letting me know my signature contains too many lines and too many characters.
    Sighhhh. But the app seems to be working fine.

    Bummer! (I've tried to figure out a shorter version, but came up dry, sorry...Maybe "SaveThTortoise"???) Ask Josh if he can change the font to a smaller font for your username only.
