there are alot of possums around here too.

nice avatar.  I have one of oj simpon serving holiday dinner, but can't upload.  how come?Smile

You can't upload because you don't have a place to store the avatar file.  You need a gold or platinum account for file space here.   If you have a web site that allows hot linking you could try hosting it there and display it here I think  couldbe, maybe, haven't tried it myself. 

To make an avatar you need an art program like Paint Shop Pro where you can take or make a picture in a size you can work with, then shrink it down to 64x64 or 100x100 pixels and save it as a my-avatar.png file for use as an avatar here.   Two keys are reduction capability and save as png file type.  To be nice you would also want to do a color reduction so your avatar loads faster.

          BobP - I removed the white background and replaced it with the color of the avatar background.  I hope you don't mind.  If you look closely you can see the difference.

              Hi!

              I don't know how to draw, I just did this so people can see how easy it is to make your own avatar, I used Windows' Paint, the free program that comes with the Windows Operating System.

              You should be able to use many kinds of drawing programs and or pictures.

              I made it as it should be:

              64 X 64 pixels as I am not a premium member, if you are allowed bigger avatars then you can make a bigger picture file for your avatar, anyhow a bigger picture file can be used and LP will reduce it down to size, but there might be some picture quality loss.

              Better make it just the right size that you are allowed to.

              There are any number of places where you can host it at, including at one of your own web pages, as I just myself did.

              This might not be my permanent avatar, it was just a very quick made up thing.

              Even with Windows' Paint you can do very much better than I did, if you take the time to.

                  Thanks, it was the best that I could do very fast and with MS Paint.

                  I see that your picture is of Followers from the Lottery Bible or something like it.

                    Actually it's a +/- rundown.

                      I used the former freeware version of Ultimate Paint which is just a little better than MS Paint and remade the avatar as this:

                      ----------

                      Another possible freeware, but harder to use would be "Zoner Draw 3", but it needs registration.

                      Ultimate Paint is good enough as you can Zoom to do detailed fine small work as I did on the picture there.

                      Nothing very fancy, as it is only a 64X64 pixels, the small stuff is very hard to see unless you zoon the picture, but it is there.

                        Now that Todd's latest upgrade requires avatars, I finally gave in and made myself one.  What do you think? 

                        Notice: No possums were harmed in the making of this avatar.

                        Why isn't there a Possum lottery?  I remember when the Beverly Hillbillies did a show on Possum Day.  There should be a possum lottery, but what would the prizes be?   Jackpot winner gets a possum, 2nd prize is 2 possums, 3rd prize is 3 possums, 4th prize is 4 possums.

                        Devil says to the lottery player, "Sign here and you will win the largest Powerball Jackpot in history.  In return I get your soul and the souls of all your family and their children's souls."

                        Lottery Player, "So what's the catch?"

                        All comments, opinions, lottery jokes, poll votes appreciated.

                            Coincidentally, when I went outside in my yard last night I thought I saw one of the kitties I feed and, when I got a little closer, it wasn't a kitty.    It was my friend Pete, the opossum.  He lives in a brush pile in my backyard & doesn't bother anyone..not exactly a pet like this guy
