What do you want to see in video and online?
Post a comment with your answer, and update your profile photo on FineHomebuilding.com and you could be the lucky winner of our soon-to-be-released 2009 Fine Homebuilding Magazine Archive DVD-ROM.
Share your thoughts
In the comments section below, please tell us about the themes you'd like to see covered at Fine Homebuilding.com. What topics are most important to you? What would you like to see covered using in-depth video features?
One of the greatest aspects of combining a print magazine with a strong presence on the internet is the ability to go directly to readers and pose the question: what would you like to see us cover? We've received some great feedback concerning our "There's a Better Way" and "Build Like a Pro" video series, and we'd like to continue on that path, with your help.
As an added twist, those leaving comments should do so using a new profile image, or "avatar." We're getting a bit bored with the same old grey box silhouette images that so many of you have associated with your profiles. So for the next ten days, if you post a comment using a creative new avatar, you'll be automatically eligible to win a copy of our soon-to-be-released 2009 Fine Homebuilding Magazine Archive on DVD-ROM.
How to Update Your Profile Photo
To update your avatar, go to your "Manage Profile Page" and upload an image using the "Change Your Profile Image" box (highlighted at left). Remember, profile photos can be no larger than 4MB in size and 4,000 pixels in width, and no smaller than 400 px. wide.
To get your creative juices flowing, have a look at these links to a variety of avatar resources that will help you create your new image:
The easiest method available. Upload any photo and this program creates an avatar. Our site uses photos that are 150 pixels wide.
Face Your Manga
This site is pretty wild. Upload a photograph of yourself and become a cartoon.
For a more humorous approach, turn yourself into a Simpsons character.
Or be creative and upload your company logo, an image, or an icon that represents you.
