Don't worry so much. (grin) The avatar has nothing to do with the old port as long as you uploaded it via the forum's user's area. However, we will not just pull the old portfolio until everyone has had a chance to move over, we're in no rush, but encourage everyone to make the move.
Second, the G1 number is important. The new search engine coming will allow you to use this, and if you go to the home page, on the upper right you'll see where you can enter a person's G1 to search. In fact I used it ten minutes ago to check a model's port that I was given a number for.
I'll look at adding it back to the profile page, I guess I overlooked it as it used to be there but with all the upgrades, that slipped. Thanks though, thanks again, and thanks for being a part of the G1 family and community, rg sends!
