|[All users can have an avatar beside his or her name on this BB - here are the quick reference details -]
*) Avatars can only be selected from our galleries. This means you cannot link to off-site galleries or to an avatar hosted in your own private webspace.
*) However, you are very welcome to create your own avatars for me to upload to our galleries. This way you can have an image of your own choosing.
*) Create the image as a .JPG .PNG or .GIF file 65 x 65 pixels in size and no larger than 6144 bytes and post your image here on this thread for me to upload.
*) We have galleries of the following categories. Please identify which gallery you'd like to have the avatar added to (if it's not particularly obvious):
-Animals and Plants
-Art and Photography
-Cartoons and Games
-Film and TV
*) To have an avatar alongside your name when you make posts:
1. Go to your Profile (Profile button is in the top right-hand corner of the screen, immediately below "The Divine Comedy" heading).
2. Scroll down to the section of your profile entitled "Avatar Control Panel" and click on the "Show Gallery" button. This will show you all the avatars available. Choose different galleries from the pull down menu at the top of the page.
3. Click the box beneath the avatar you'd like and click the "Submit" button at the bottom of that gallery page.
4. Your Profile page should now display your choice of avatar. You can change this at any time by repeating steps 1-3.
