Your avatar is the image - configured in the "My Controls" section of the site - that appears next to each of your posts.
Usually, it'll be something personal or distinctive, for instance a small thumbnail photo of yourself, a picture of a pet, or of your favourite band.

We have a few guidelines as to what sorts of avatars you can use:
1. Firstly, you can't use Macromedia Flash movies or heavily animated avatars; they are not only disruptive but a load on people's resources and can be irritating. In this case, less is more.
2. You must adhere to the size and dimension limits imposed on you by the software; it's to make sure avatars aren't disruptive and don't take up too much space on the serve or being downloaded.
3. You must be considerate choosing an avatar, so remember not to include anything that might offend people, or get them into trouble if they were viewing the forum in school or work. It needn't be bland, but it shouldn't be offensive and it certainly shouldn't annoy people.

That's all - have fun creating!
