    Way To Go Russell, 33 days smoke free.

    Texasrain, if you have a picture of yourself, your kids, a family pet, or something else that you like, it can be reduced to the appropriate size to be used as an avatar. Let me know if you need help, or there are others who are willing to help too.

    Heather has an excellent thread on computers, I think it's the one referred to above.

    I second that, Heather is THE computer queen!

    The thread in question......

    Computer Illiteracy

    You can right click and save absolutely any picture, resize it, and use it as your avatar. There are also avatar websites. Good luck, PM me if you need help!

    But doesn't she need 50 posts to get a custom avatar?

    Ahhhh yes. So busy trying to explain the technical, I overlooked the obvious.

    You have to have 50 posts to be able to use a custom avatar.

    So you have 46 moreposts. Child's play.

    Actually, you can use a custom avatar after ten posts. You don't have so far to go after all

    Crap, I'm slipping. Is it custom user text that you need 50 posts for?

    I think it's the "member status" thing... junior member, member, senior member.... 50 posts before you can change it to "problem member" or something like that...
