Welcome Foxy, Newbs are always welcome to PoL

as you probably have seen looking from the sidelines most people in here could be described as "the wheels spinning but the hamsters dead", "Sandwich short of a Picnic" or " Like Porty" :wink:

Enjoy

Foxy

when I got mine you had to email your selected image, matching the size criteria layed out somewhere on one of the sticky threads, to the administrator and hey, Bobs your uncle!

you may be able to link directly to an image now? I don't really keep up with the techno stuff.

Foxy have a look at the "How Do I?" Board. That'll help.
When I found an avatar that I wanted I copied it across to my desktop then onto my free account at Photobucket.com where I link to from my profile.

If you click on the Portobello Online Forum Index at the top and bottom of each page, it takes you to the forums (fora?) list. The other one is the How Do I? forum.
