Thankyou John,
I had things buzzing about in my mind, but what you say does explain many questions I had about the film Avatar...................how did they get the floating mountains?!

Avatars are graphical representations of individual people. They can be photos, pictures, sketches, Van Goghs (if you are mad) Rembrandts(if you are a poseur), Graham Watson(if you can sit backwards on a motorbike...none better in my view) or you can simply have a photo of yourself which everyone would instantly recognize.

I thought avatars were tall, blue, cartoony people appearing in pretentious James Cameron films. I don't remember any cyclists in that jungle. Julian the confused

To load a cartoon(avatar) or picture of yourself go to your User Control Panel and select the "Profile" tab. Then select "edit Avatar" on the menu bar on the left. You will be able to upload a small picture of yourself up to 100 X 100 pixels and 10Kb in size. You will have to edit your pictures down to size on the picture editor on your PC before you upload them.

Your picture will be displayed beside all your messages on the board.
