    Am I missing something? Why does everyone have the Lego guy holding a box as their avatar?

    My guess is that it is a default avatar for those who do not choose one.

    It is automatic. It just showed up on one of my posts and I did not choose it.

    Just to show you what a complete computer idiot I am. Avatar list? Profile settings? You might as well talk to me in Chinese.
    Then again I can find the beaver in slantnosechevy"s avatar. And I do miss that part of the job.

    An "Avatar" is the name for the picture under your name when you post. To change the white Lego looking figure holding the brown box, click on "Settings", located at the top right corner of this page between "My Profile" and "Log Out". This takes you to a page where you look in the third box on the left side that is labeled "My Settings". Click on 'Edit Avatars", this give you three options. You can download a picture from your computer, copy a picture from the internet, or pick out one from the hundreds of "Predefined Miscellaneous". There are several lists there, you can pick one out and save it.

    Easy for you to say. Like I said, Chinese. But I'll give it a shot, I think.

    Thanks Scratch. Who says you can't teach an old old old package car driver new tricks. And boy does that fit.
