    Edit - Need an update for the new Forum.
    --------

    What's an avatar? Here is one definition:

    The term "avatar" comes from Hindu mythology, and originally was the name of the temporary body that a God uses when visiting Earth. In virtual communities, an avatar is a graphical representation of a participant

    There are more to be found with a special google search.

    To set your avatar in this forum do the following:

    (Note: if you upload an avatar keep the size small typically the files are 10-40K, dimensions: 125x95)
    1. click on 'Control Panel'(top left of the window next to the 'log off')
    2. in the next window click on 'Edit Options' on the line of links close to the top of the window
    3. there is a section called Avatar
    4. choose the option you want, most likely you want to upload on
    5. select 'Uploaded Avatar' and
    6. click on 'Upload Avatar'
    7. a dialog window opens, click on 'Browse'
    8. a file selection dialog opens, navigate to the file you want to upload from your machine
    9. click on upload image
    10. now you should be back on the 'Edit Options' page
    11. don't forget to click 'Submit' at the bottom of the page.
    This should be it. If it doesn't work let me know and I'll correct the instructions.</div>

    Wow, I didn't know there was an 11 step program. I thought you just waited and one would pop-up someday. Heck mine even changes from time to time. I wonder what happen to the Bat? Maybe he found a bathroom.</div>



    Thanks for the instructions, I might what to add my own someday. Of-course the Bat may come back, but thats cool too.</div>

      Steve, go to step 3 and then use the option for selecting an avatar from the gallery. The bat is in the gallery.

            Uwe,

            Great post!
            Nice research on the AVATAR. I was curious about it.

            Thank you.

                Probably something Jack has to look into. Alternatively you could try to upload the avatar here to a post and I could give it a try.

                  Hello,

                  Not sure others had problems with their Avatars.
                  Could this be a problem on renaming the extension but not really being the file type?
                  I wonder if you can export the Avatar in other formats to see if that will get it solved. As Uwe suggested, we can try to help converting it to you.

                  Just let me know if you still needs help.
