Goto Profile/edit avatar/use custom avatar

Your foto needs to be 100x100 pixcels or less and less than 19.5kb...any problems resizing drop me a line ;)

And to answer your other question:-
"
-in computing, an image which represents you in online games, chat rooms, etc. and which you can move around the screen using the mouse or keys:
- By typing in simple commands you could pick up objects and talk to other avatars, with your words displayed in a cartoon bubble above your head.
"

Some of it sounds a bit jiberish to me :confused:
:)
Edit : YIKES! You shouldn't bothered Wrinx :eek: ;) :)

New one? How new?
I've got Montrous Regiment, is there a newer one than that?


The original use of the word 'avatar' was as 8MU says. An Avatar was an embodiment of God, that people could see.
So, if He wanted to speak to Moses, and chose to appear as a burning bush, then the burning bush was his avatar.

From that, avatar is now used to mean 'embodiment'. So on the internet, that picture by our posts is what people see of us, therefore it's an embodiment of our internet selves, therefore it's our avatar.
natch ;)

BTW Nice one Bazza, you sound like a proper philosopher :)
