Sunshine,
Would you please sort out the avatar question that has come up here:

I know that I would be most upset if someone used the avatar that I chose.  Can you add another block of pics for people to choose from please?

 You can always add your own custom avatar to ensure no one will have one like yours.. as membership increases it seems almost inevitable that someone will choose one that someone else is using..

More to choose from would be nice but if its not possible just upload your own.

Hi Myrtlemaid
(Date Posted:18/06/2011 1:48 PM)

Can you make a few suggestions of other sites where people can find a good selection of pics to choose from.  Not everyone knows how to / wants to draw their own, or has a suitable picture.

For anyone who hasn't already seen them, SunshineMeadows posted a set of instructions for uploading an avatar of your own on this thread - see message #15. You can find your profile editing page here.

You can use Google Images to search on "avatar" and a theme you fancy having, but anything on the web as an avatar is probably already in use by someone somewhere. I recommend picking a photo you've taken or an image you've created and using that, if you can. Avoid using someone else's work unless you have permission.

A word of warning: be careful if there might be recognisable information in the picture, such as a person's face, a car or a location you prefer not to have identified. Also, try to resize your avatar to be a maximum of 100 pixels wide before uploading it - it helps to keep the forum pages loading quickly.

Auntie,

I checked the thread you linked to and can't see a disagreement as such, but I can see the point about avatars does need addressing.

Darth (thank you) has already linked to my previous post, but I will repost it here too.

15#

I can't get rid of the avatars Aimoo provides, but I can ask people keep the avatars they use to static non flashing ones. ARider already mentioned using Google Images to find different avatars. Once the avatar has been saved to the hard drive on you computer eg in the Documents folder, you add it to your profile by using the edit option which is on the left had side of your profile.

Click the browse button and a smaller window will allow you to look for the new avatar on your computer. Once you find it click on it and then click on the Open button. The smaller window close and you are back to the previous on, next click the submit button at the bottom of the page.

It can take a while for Aimoo to show the new avatar but if you feel it is taking too long please try again.


Please Note.

After I said people were only going to be static avatars a couple of people used animations but no-one seemed to mind. I added this to the House Rules.

Members should not

Use flashy animations in the avatars on their aimoo profiles.If someone uses an animation and it causes visual problems for someone else they will be asked to make the animation static or change the avatar altogether.

(please see next post for more about avatars)

Okay so a decision has to be made about the default avatars.

No one has been asking for one of the default avatars to be considered theirs and that no one else can use them. If I were to be asked such a thing my answer would be 'No' because it would be unfair to expect newbies or less technical people to organise getting their own avatar. Also I could end up spending a lot of time sorting out avatar issues and not getting other stuff done. :-)

I think the fairest way to sort this is to say anyone can use any of the default avatars as long as they are not trying to pretend they are another person using the same avatar.

I suggest that people who want to have their 'own' avatar that they follow the instructions on how to get one and if they are having trouble finding avatars I am willing to help by finding and posting new images can use. Once someone reserves an image as an avatar it will be considered theirs and I will delete it as an option.

It would be better for people to find the avatar image they want because I can't do this in a personalised way, but here are some to be going on with.

 

         


 

Download Instructions: Right mouse click on the image and select Save Picture As... (or Save Image As...) Then simply save the image to a location on your hard drive.

To get a avatar onto your computer.

Move you mouse until the pointing arrow on screen is over the doggy picture you want to use.
Next click the right hand side button on you mouse and a little box opens.
Choose the option that says Save Picture as and another little box opens.
Choose the location you want to save the doggy picture in and click on the button that says open.
You then get the option to Save click on that.

You have now save the picture to a location on your computer.

Next follow the instructions I gave on the thread that describe how to change your avatar.

The one in Paris, but they say that one was just as good and people there could not be so more helpful and not in a condescending way. I really loved it. and so did the kids!!!!

If there is an avtar you would like eg a pic of a man on a bike but you cant find why not ask here and see if anyone comes up with onethat would also give people who come new and want an avatar the chance to find one. Sunshine, please could you tell me, when you have a minute, howw to delete an avatar once its been chosen so that it doesnt get used again,. jox

 Hi Myrtlemaid,

I like the avatars you posted :-)

To delete the ones that people have chosen to use, you click on the arrow to the left of the Actions box at the top of message that the avatar is in. This brings up a number of options including Edit. Click on Edit and then click on Go. What looks like a normal reply box opens and you can edit the message. The way I delete avatars and pictures etc is to left click on it and then hit the delete key, then I click the edit button at the bottom right to post the edited version.
If you make a mistake you can click cancel at the bottom right and then go back and try the edit again. Also if you are familiar with the way the tool bar functions you can use the back arrow in the same way as the one in Microsoft Office works.

I can do screen shots if you need them. :-)

I tink that screen shots would be a big help..possibly put them in the learning zone if you wouldnt mind, then I and any new mods will be able to find them easily when we forget what we are doing..My heads a bit all over the place  .right now so pictures really would help..thanks sunshine did I ever tell you you're a star?

Aimoo was having server issues so it took longer than I expected, but click here for the tutorial on How to edit a post. It also touches on how to save and image which will help people who see a image online and want to save it.

Myrtle,

Slightly odd can be really unsettling, because the more you try to figure out the specifics of odd the more odd can feel odder (not sure that is a word). On the upside odd can also become the new norm that is better than the one you had before. From a personal perspective a day when it gets to tea time and I realise I feel odd but in a goood way because for that day at least neuralgia was tamed.

No rush everyone know you, Hossy and I only have so many spoons, we get to things when we can/if we can.

New selection of pics
(Date Posted:21/06/2011 4:45 PM)

If I had not already chosen this one, I would have liked the sleepy lion that Myrtlemaid gave above.  
But, I think I will definitely stick to this silly cartoony one.  It suits me better even though I am sleepy all the time, like the lion.

 I wanted to let you all know that I was a lady, after numerous confusions on Beeb Ouch. However, it maybe isn't a great idea to let you all know exactly what I look like ...

So I used this face transformation web page. It's great. 
It's from St Andrew's Uni. Clever people up there.

Yes from just your nickname I would have thought you a fella, once I saw you avatar I could see you are a lady. Lovely eyes.

I am not sure about the idea of face transformation, not sure why though.:-)

 Yep, it's a photo of me digitally messed with and thank you for the compliment. People do say my eyes are my best feature, along with my skin and  the transformer improved both! Me as a bloke was a bit disconcerting as there wasn't a great deal of change! Apart from the Adam's apple.

 Like the first one!

Just a thought, changing the title on this thread so that people know this is where to look for spare avatar pics might be a good idea, the title at the moment might just be looked over by new people :)
