I want to add an avatar. When i TRY IT WON'T GO BECAUSE my picture upload is 30.74. I have no idea how to change it. I take pictures with a Sony camera on floppy discs and upload. I am computer illiterate. Please help :boggle:

on a PC, assuming you don't have a better tool, open you picture in "Paint" and under "Image/Attrubutes" make it smaller and then "Save as"

repeat as necessary...

Your pic needs to be 110 x 110 pixels or smaller, and file size <= 30,740 bytes.

Load your avatar pic into your favorite photo editor, and resize it so the largest dimension, H or W, is <= 110 pixels. Save the resized pic to disc as a new file <= 30,740 bytes, then upload that via your User Control Panel.

Ye-haa and Hip, Hay, Haroo. Now you need a signature statement. Something that's going to go with that shirt. Good Luck.

This is the signature line that matches the shirt. I've always had problems matching plaid.

That is true but I didn't have anything to do with this signature line. That's all Pop's idea.
