  • Hi I,m new here, but what is a avatar?

    Hi my name is Dave, I make pelmets for a living and came across this site whilst browsing the web. It looks very interesting and if I can be of help to anyone, as I have been making pelmets and fitting curtains for over twenty years I think I have made most of the mistakes!
    I have retired from the fitting (to fat to get up the ladder), and just make pelmets now.
    Regards Dave and Sue

    Hi Dave,

    I'm sure you have a wealth of knowledge for us all to 'borrow' if you've been pelmet making and track fitting for 20 years..... I hope you'll have time to still make pelmets when you're bombarded by our questions!

    If you click on User Control Panel, just below Board Index, you will be taken to a screen where you can make choices about how you use the forum, whether you want to attach a signature as standard without typing it each time and a section that lets you put a picture of some sort that will appear with each of your posts. It's called an Avatar.

    It has to be a small picture and you are given the choice of uploading a picture already stored on your computer. Good luck with uplaoding an Avatar!

      Thanks Jules I'II try that.

      I have managed to upload a picture, we looked in the dictionary and it said a avatar "descent of deity to earth in incarnate form; incarnation". Sounds very mystical, so I used my most mystical pelmet if there is such a thing

            That does indeed look mystical! Any chance of putting it in the gallery full sized so we can take a proper look please?

              Wow your pelmet looks amazing.

              As Jules asked, please put it in the gallery, would love a bigger pic of it.

                In the computer world an avatar is a computer user's representation of himself/herself or alter ego, whether in the form of a three-dimensional model used in computer games, a two-dimensional icon (picture) used on Internet forums and other communities. Apparently originally ?????, from the Sanskrit word for "a form of self", which is commonly used in many Indian languages.

                  Thanks Louise, so now I know what my avatar means, either I am a Ram, or as Sue, my better half would say an old goat

                  Many thanks
