My avatar still gets deleted after I login and I wanted to upload my avatar again ( for the 1000th time) but clicking on my blank picture doesn't take me to "my gallery" anymore. How can we change avatars now ?

There is no option for an avatar in the "Edit profile / Personal Profile" page. I also miss seeing the top contributors in the left section, it gave me a feeling of confidence that someone wiser is ready to solve complicated questions. Now the left pannel is just a big white wall.

I love the look of this on first glance, great work guys!


Edit: Is there going to be a thread / feature to report bugs? I've just found a spelling mistake on one of the badges for example -


"Be active in the Community by providing lost of great answers to questions".

Adrian B: your avatar is connected with your Google account picture. You just need to add a picture there and it will be automatically working in the AdWords Community as well:

Thank you Agata, solved it.

I noticed that we cannot add to a topic once it receives a solution. I just remembered some new info and I wanted to update a user about something, but I cannot . It is about the keyword capitalization in the usage of the Dynamic Keyword Insertion,because capitalization gets transfered in the Ad Text, in this thread

Hi Scott, thanks for reporting the spelling issue to us. I'd suggest the users post any feedback for now in the comments section below the article.

I see that the content stream on the homepage gets updated automatically when something new is posted. This is really cool. Well done.
