An avatar is the image you can have displayed under your name on the left that appears with every post you make

The Photo Gallery is back up at:
http://www.buffettnews.com/gallery/

Please note some changes:

Any picture you want to post that is not Buffett related should be uploaded to the "User Gallery" (so upload you avatars there).

Your avatar size should not exceed 140 x 140 pixels.


If you're not sure about the size of the pic in your avatar?? Right click over the picture - go to 'Properties' then 'Dimensions'...

If the pic is larger than 140x140 - it takes up too much space on the posts, and people with smaller monitors have to scroll to the right in order to read the posts. :(

Thank you.. thank you!!!! :D

I have tons of them in my house too. :D
And no, I don't know what the link was. :( Once it's gone, no one is able to view/retrieve it.

How come everytime I log off and come back on now, my avatar is gone?
Ain't no trigger I can trip
No switch that I can flip
Even if I wanted to
you're in my head
