What are avatars  

The word 'Avatar' has many meanings though more often than not refers to the embodiment of a God. Since here at the Message Board we're an un-religeous bunch, in Message Board(ism) they are used in the context of Internet avatars which more often than not are simple self representations.


  Using avatars  

To create your self an avatar simply fill in the avatar URL field when creating or amending your Message Board account. This field should contain the full Internet URL to the image you wish to use as your avatar. The image should be 50 pixels in both width and height for optimum definition, in addition a thin black border will automatically outline your avatar when it is displayed. You may use any image you like for your avatar so long as it is not indecent or offensive in any way.
