There's wind in our hair
And there's water in our shoes
It's been a lovely cruise.

SMLCHNG....I think I need help with my avatar. I'm using the following address- http://www.buffettfan.net/gallery/albums/TraderRick.gif and doesn't seem to be working. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

See if this works for you, Rick. :)

Use this file name. The one you were using was too large. :)

2. Click on "Profile" near the top of the page

3. Near the bottom of the Profile page find the "Avatar control panel" section. In the field "Link to off-site Avatar:" , enter the URL address of the picture you want to link to. You should include the name of the gif or jpg file. Your avatar size should not exceed 140 x 140 pixels.
Example:
http://www.buffettfan.net/albums/misc/JoAni.gif
Just a kind reminder to everyone who posts on the site.. if your avatar is too big?? It makes people (especially with smaller monitors) have to scroll to the right in order to read the posts. :( :( If you right click over your picture, you can see what your dimensions are.. If larger than 140x140, it's too big.

THANKS!!!!!! :D :D :D

Tom? The pics take a few days to be 'approved' by the site owner/admin. Once it is? You copy the URL address of the thumbnail size pic, and paste that in your profile in the area that has this:
Enter the URL of the location containing the Avatar image you wish to link to. :)

The use of the posted avatar (JoAni.gif) is illegal. That is the copyrighted graphic used by the Parrot Head Webring. Someone used mascot3b.gif and made an animated graphic, regarless still illegal. Please visit

to see the copyright claim.
Would appreciate it if everyone would respect our copyright

Hmm, fuddy duddies...I wonder just how much other "copyrighted" material is in here? Time to do an avatar copyright audit...anyone that has copied something from another site, please raise your phin... :roll:

I think I know what you're asking, Tom..

What picture you put in your signature line in your profile will appear in every post. (Unless you you uncheck "Attach signature" below the bottom of the box where you are typing)

If you want to just put a picture in a post click the Img button, paste in a URL and click the Img button again. (Above the posting box).
