Carole .. instead of the <img src =

just use [img ] the url [/img ] without the spaces

OK you got me :oops:

I'm just here to check if all my stuff works. I read on another board that some people were having trouble posting to other than one board.


I hope this works.

By the way Carole, I love your dove graphic.

Carole and Johnny September 12th, 2005 07:15 PM

Thanks Kuki! Got it working. :)

Thanks Larry. Pretty bird you got there!

I'm not having trouble with my Avatair or whatever it is called, cause I don't know what that is. If I did know, I would probably have trouble with it, so I don't want to know. :wink:

Luanne, you crack me up! I always want to know what things like avatars do...and this way I can (hopefully) show off MY birdie, too!

So......here goes!

your avatar in an aviatar - (that means its a flying avatar).

Anni September 12th, 2005 09:39 PM

You're right, Paul.....it is, and she does! <G>

Wonder where they came up with the word avatar to describe a picture. Guess using the word picture would be too obvious. Anyway, personally I find them distracting especially if there is one sentence and forty sixteen spaces of vanity avatars filling up my screen.

The Avatar is only the picture in the upper left corner of the message under the senders name.

The other stuff is part of the signature.

Avatar

n. Syn. [in Hindu mythology, the incarnation of a god]
1. Among people working on virtual reality and cyberspace
interfaces, an "avatar" is an icon or representation of a user in a
shared virtual reality. The term is sometimes used on MUDs. 2.
[CMU, Tektronix] root, superuser. There are quite a few Unix
machines on which the name of the superuser account is `avatar'
rather than `root'. This quirk was originated by a CMU hacker who
found the terms `root' and `superuser' unimaginative, and thought
`avatar' might better impress people with the responsibility they
were accepting.


It helps to remind you who is righting the post. So many people have the same name or a similar name , but the picture is quickly set in your memory.


I like then too. (can you tell :-))

I also had some trouble with using the avitar, just couldn't get a pic the size it would accept. With the help of ML, she got the pic sized right and it worked LOL

Donna. Neat photo in the avatar, but it looks like your signature died. By the way none of the clocks are working.
