    We have noticed more and more folks either without avatars or inappropriate avatars.

    If you are having trouble gettin an avatar posted or don't know how or can't resize your pic so you can post it just send it to me and I will fix your pic for you by resizing it and then I will send it to a mod for them to go in and put it in your profile for your avatar.

    Just remember avatars have to be pictures of yourself.

    It is always nice to see who you are talking to. Gives everyone a friendly perspective.

    Here is the e-mail addy to send your pics to for me to fix.
    whiskerwarrior@yahoo.com

    Thanks for all your cooperation in this matter.

    No, here are the rules.


    9. Avatar and Profile Pictures, Signature Rules

    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.

    The Profile picture can be used to display another photo that you like as long as the picture is in good taste and does not contain advertisements.

    The signature section of your profile may contain no more than 4 lines. Signatures which are too long, do not conform with the other rules regarding signatures, or which interfere with the display or readability of messages will be edited or removed.

    Not to be contrary...and as you can see, I utilize the avatar option...and appreciate when others do, but you are making it sound like it is a requirement to have one. ...Just sayin'. Is it no longer optional?

    You are right tom and matt. It isn't mandatory to have an avatar but if you do have one then there are rules to follow.

    If anyone one wants an avatar but don't know how to go about it then I am here to help.

    Most contests are restricted to those that are star members and that have a proper avatar.. and have at least their first name and state in which they are from. This is just one good reason to have a proper avatar.

    It also promotes a good a friendly atmosphere... It is always nice to have an idea of who you are talking to.

    You are absolutely correct, it is much better to have an avitar and of course there are rules to guide one on having it. I like seeing who I am "talking" to, well, in most cases. LOL

    I just use the state since it's not always safe to give your exact location...esp if your pic is a true relection of what you actually look like and mine is, and if you live in a small town. In my case we live in the area of a small town-- we are in a rural subdivision, but I totally understand why someone wouldn't list their town.

    Not trying to talk anyone OUT of it, just saying that some folks are a little leery of that, I will tell someone where I live in general area. and in pm where I know exactly who I am talking to, will get more specific.

    Everyone on the internet is NOT nice, even though most of our members seem to be wonderful people.,, as evidenced by Commando's recent letter that was posted.
