Avatars

Postby Sakkarin » Wed May 06, 2020 10:40 pm

Quick note on avatars: to load them on here via the User Control Panel, they have to be 100 pixels x 100 pixels or smaller, and no more than 75kb.

I am quite happy to prepare/load any piccies anyone wants turned into an avatar, just point me at the pic you want to use (or create one for you from scratch!).

For Wildies, if you would like your Wildfood avatar plonked in here, just let me know.

thanks for that response Sakkarin . :thumbsup With the way I download my photos on here, I am limited to re-sizing and it seems even the smallest one is too big for an avatar .. so yes please, if you could download mine (although after today the hair may be a different colour ;) )

Umm - Gill did mine from the Wildfood board. However, she said that it would go if, horror of horrors, Wildfood went down permanently :thumbsdown and I don't want that to happen. I love the pic & want to keep it.

However, I am not a techno-geek

Everything I read in the newspapers convinceS me that this won’t happen for a while but my hairdresser is very upbeat and says they will be up and running soon.

If you want to catch bugs, the hairdresser's is the place to go - they're notorious for it, all that blowing about of the dryers....!

I seem to have a permanent baseball cap nailed to my head these days!!! :thumbsdown

My last hair cut was the week that lockdown started. My hairdresser usually wants to wash my hair (before cutting) and blow drying it (after cutting), however this time I insisted that I would arrive with it already wet from washing at home, and there would be no blow-drying. TBH, I don't like the way she blow dries it, so I was glad to be able to do that for myself.
