    Geoff I was wandering if you could help me? I have been  trying to install a Avatar and when I do the obvious instructions given I am getting a message telling me its not available is this because my laptop is afew years bold or what? Any suggestions would be appreciated.Regards Brian Cooper

    Shouldn't be a problem Brian just go to settings and click on edit by the avatar. The only problem I found was that the file selector asks for *.JPG and  mine was *.jpg so i had to change the case of the pictures extension (the .jpg). It wasn't particularly quick and I had to wait a few minutes before the picture was fully transfered to this website once i could see the preview i had to crop and then save.  If you still have problems type the error message and i'm sure it can be sorted out.

    I've never had a private message image - at least I don't think I have!  How do you know?  Do you have to go and look or does a little message alert pop up?

    Caz, you need to go to the top of the site page where your name is, click on it and a drop down box will say *message* click on that and you are away.

    Geoff has probably told you all this in an email, but it may help another newbie.
