Hi CC :D

Because of problems we've had with spammers on the forum, we don't allow new members to post photos or load avatars until their first couple of posts have been approved...so you might want to try again now :D

Toast, an avatar is, as Kiwi303 said, the image that appears under your name on the left of a post. Mine is a gorgeous angora kid. Kiwi303's is a scary, supine monster :D To set up an avatar, click on the 'My Settings' link on the toolbar and choose the 'Edit avatar' option on the menu down the left of the screen.

Thank you for that. I won't enter into any discussion re the above but both of you have admirably explained & demonstrated avatars!

Where does this word come from? Is it LSB language?

In my dictionary it says:

1. (Hindu Myth.) descent of deity to earth in incarnate form.

2. incarnation; manifestation; phase. [f. Skr. avatāra - descent (áva - down, tar- pass over)]

... and for those of us who are visually challenged, keep it simple please. To be honest I can't make out 80% of the avatars on here and sometimes wish they could be enlarged as we can with photgraphs.

Jack, click on 'My Settings' on the menu bar then on the menu list on the left choose 'edit options' there should be a 'Thread display options' section. In there you can choose whether or not to display avatars, signatures etc.

Does that help?
