For those of you new to forums, an avatar is a graphical image associated with a user, which helps a user express their identity in the forums. We have added a library of about 30 avatars, which are available for members to use. We have also enabled uploading of avatars, so those of you who want to create and use your own custom avatar can do that.

We thought we'd have a little fun with this by doing a custom avatar contest. Here's how it will work... Create an avatar for yourself, then post a message here in the Avatar Contest Nominations forum topic. (You can have a friend create one for you, but donít just swipe one off another board.) All nominations must be received by March 14. Then we'll create a new forum topic with a poll to allow members a week to vote for their favorite avatar. The winner will receive $100 of banner advertising in the OCC network to promote their website.

Let's see some awesome, creative avatars!

Okay... like I have said before, this is all so new to me... but I'm game! Laughing

I have noticed that its a bit difficult to strike up a conversation and keep it going... is it just me???? Confused

No Worries! Mr. Green I'm just enjoying finding my way around and getting to know people.

I just wanted to remind people that the deadline for nominations is less than a week away - March 14. You must post a reply to this topic to nominate your avatar. I am seeing a lot of cool avatars out there, but not many posts here, and we want to see as many nominees as possible.

This is fun! What a nice idea.

Sorry to say I didn't create my own. But it reminds me of "Luther's rose" so it definitely stands for me -- a Lutheran church secretary.

Thanks so much for teaching us how to do this. We have used this logo on our stationery, letterhead, etc., for years, and now it is our personal avatar. Cool Exclamation

Maybe someone could teach us how to make the wheat wave Question Is that possible?

Bless you,

iggybop1 - Your funny - LOL Laughing

outpost8 - it is possible to make your wheat move if you have the right programs/ knowledge. After the contest Barry3 might be able to help you with how to do that. - That would be cool though - good idea. Very Happy Ever think about adding color to it for your avatar?
