I see you've learned what that "avatar" setting in your profile does
but for the benefit of others I'll go into a little more detail here...
is a small graphic used to represent your online identity. It appears under your username in any postings you make and is also visible in your profile that may be browsed via the Memberlist
link above. You can see my current avatar over there on the left - pretty cute, huh?
If you'd like to use an avatar you can choose from the few graphics that I have already provided in the avatar galleries - accessible via the Profile
link above (you must be logged in to edit your profile).
I'll be periodically adding graphics so if you have suggestions for other avatars please feel free to let me know by posting a message in the Suggestions and Comments
forum and I'll see what I can do.
