Yes it's me, I changed my photo for an impersonal bucolic theme. Why? Because not everyone on the open world understands what Humanism is about. Terrain is presumably understood by anyone. :laughter:

No offence Elio, but far prettier!

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Mine is pretty self-explanatory =)

I love Sudan, I find so much beauty in the people, cultures and traditions. But its history troubles me. The Darfur Crisis is something which really gets to me.

Sarahjade, I had relatives who lived and died there, my last relative (cousin) left Kartum for good just a few days ago.

I have chosen Tim Minchin for my avatar just 'cause I like him.
All right?

Mabe, on second thoughts, I should have left off explaining as that pic would be a GOOD hair day for me!!

After being informed that a faceless me as an avatar was disconcerting, I have made a new avatar that has my face. I have since been told (by my own wife) that it looks scary... I can't win...

Thanks Getreal. I think that making Melissa (my wife) watch the video for "Come to Daddy" by Aphex Twin the other day probably made her slightly scared of bearded smiling men...

Can anyone direct me to the site where you are able to create those South Park style avatars? I've found a couple of sites on my own, but the file I end up with is too big to use as an avatar. What am I doing wrong? Please have patience with me, I'm half a breath away from the computer illiterate generation. :D

I have changed my avatar to... another one of Tim Minchin, but this time he's in jesus mode!

Hestia, all I can do is trawl the different sites for a picture of the right size. Apparently it is possible to compress it (I think it's called that) to make it smaller. But I haven't a scooby how to do that.(When I needed it done, I got a suitably young person to do it for me)
There are sites which specialise in avatars and they should have a selection of suitably sized ones.

Paolo_ that Aphex Twin video is amazing!
I liked the music, too. I'm rather fond of some of their tunes.

The South Park avatar website is SP-Studio. You have a tremendous number of options there, so have fun, but do remember to come back here and upload your avatar!

I'm not having any luck. It still tells me that the avatar I create on that site is too big. I guess I will just have to do without one for now. :puzzled:
