    Smile Hello everyone, nice to be here

    Hi all, I'm Brian from Northern NJ (NYC suburb) and I just found this forum while checking out Aruba.com for our upcoming trip. This will be our 8th annual family trip to Aruba (with a few "couples trips" thrown in during that time). We are Marriott Timeshare owners and usually stay at the Aruba Surf Club, where we will be this year arriving on July 14th. We travel with our 2 adult daughters, their husbands, our 3 grandchildren and one of our daughter's in-laws, who also own Marriott TS. Our granddaughters are now almost 8 and almost 6 and have been going to Aruba every year since they were born. We are starting this tradition with our new Grandson, Dylan this year who will be 5 months old when we travel next month.

    We are always on the lookout for new things to do and restaurants to try during our annual trip so I figured this was a great place to read and learn about new things since our last visit (we were here in November '18 with another couple, and last July with the whole family).

    Our favorite restaurants include Quinta Del Carmen, Chalet Swiss and El Gaucho. One of my favorite casual places along the beach is Eduardo's Beach Shack for great juice drinks, smoothies, protein balls and coco-whip frozen dessert. We walk down there almost every day from the Surf Club.

    I hope to contribute to the forums here and learn what I can from everyone else's experiences. 1 question...how do I set up my profile with a picture and that cool timeline for "days until next visit" to Aruba. I can't really find where to add those things to my profile. Is there an instruction thread to help me do that? Thanks all.
    Brian

    Hi welcome to the forum!! The day countdown is a ticker and you can create and copy the code on tickerfactory.com. I think you need to have a certain number of posts before you can do some of this stuff. Andrea or Walt are sure to post with some guidelines.

    go to this (on your page) and click SETTINGS
    go to MY SETTINGS
    go to EDIT SIGNATURE LINE
    enter a signature and remember to hit save.

    same thing for an AVATAR
    SETTINGS - MY SETTINGS- MY Avatar

    HOWEVER........these options will not kick in til you have been a member for 10 days and/or have 11 posts.

    If you want to message me using the private message feature, (go to notifications and then Send Private message) I will be able to add a signature for you or an Avatar. The ticker factory is the one for trip countdown.

    Thanks Peg, Mv and Andrea. I guess I will have to get busy posting to the forums so that I can edit my profile/ settings soon.
