    I figure this will probley make a few mad and if so I am sorry
    But some of our newer members need to see the rule on the picture in your Avitar unless it has been changed it is supposed to be of the member

    Good post Richard.

    You are correct in saying that avatars are to be a picture of the member.

    As the BOC FAQ/Rules state:
    The Avatar picture option was created to allow members to visually identify who they are talking to and create an atmosphere of friendship by sharing your personal image, "Your face". This option does create a more favorable environment for all and is strictly voluntary to participate in.

    The Avatar picture option will only contain a relatively recent recognizable photo of yourself and will not be abused by placing advertisements, pictures of dogs, cats, cartoons, or other images or other forms of animated media.

    So long as your avatar contains a picture of yourself its fine to have one like the one Zeboman uses where his children are also in the picture with him since its obvious who he is in the picture.

    Hope this helps.

    that is the great thing about this site. you can see who you are communicating with. a picture tells a lot about a person. i do understand it may take a new member a few days or weeks to get a good avatar picture, but the people that have been on here for more than 40-50 posts have no excuse. also you can change your avatar as often as you like to show more about you and your family.

    Thanks Barb!

    I wish all would follow those rules. :big_smile:

    I don't understand why people try to use their
    small avatar to post their prized catch when they could post a much LARGER copy as a profile picture?

    I figure family as being a part of us I meant the ones that arre not even human or of the member at all I kinda figured if I posted this then the ones who needed to would go look at the rule and fix their avitar cause there is a differance in it and the Profile pic ain't there
