    I'm not computer literate at all , is there a simple way to get an avatar in place of the generic head that shows up now ?
    Are there some standard avatars on the site that I could select one from ? Or will I need my own photo loaded onto my computer ?
    old guy appreciate's any assistance ,
    Gary
    I think I'm in the wrong place...please move this if I am...I got lost,
    Gary

    In the upper right hand corner, click on the pull down window where your forum name is. Click “My Profile”. Click on the square where the generic avatar is and it should say, “edit avatar”. Click on the “edit avatar” and a window should pop up to allow you to add a pic from your computer or a url.

      Rockydog,
      Look I got an avatar . Thanks for your offer to do it for me but I was bound and determined to get one without someone else doing it for me. That and I didn't know how to send you a personal message.
      I did have some help from my office tech./computer expert girl getting the logo copied , resized and on the computer. Thank you Penny! She's a whiz with computer stuff.
      You guys are a great help to use old reloaders who don't know doodley-squat about computers.
      It's just a Ruger logo but I think it looks a lot better than nothing.
      Thanks again....Gary

        Gary, if you want to send RockyDog a personal message, you'll see a chat icon right next to his name in every forum he's posted in. Just click that and you can go to town. You'll see that you have one next to your name, under your avatar.

          Looks good Gary. You might get Penny to take a picture of you, resize it and use that for an avatar.....but wait. Not a good idea; it might break her camera.

            That little blank box at the end of their name (chat icon) ....it says "start conversation with SavageShooter" ? that's how you send a personal message ? I was looking for " send personal message"...Thanks !

              You don't want to see my old ugly mug...the beauty of the net is nobody has to know what you actually look like . In my mind's eye I look like Gary Cooper...my Daddy once told me that's who he named me after and he also said that my middle name Wayne was for John Wayne , his two favorite actors.... but I'm not sure that story holds any water . I don't think Momma would have let him name me for two Hollywood actors....that story just doesn't wash.

                Gary, Just left click right on Rocky's picture and you'll see a new box pop up. There will be a rectangle that says PRIVATE MESSAGE. Click on that and type away and hit send when you are done. When I get the message I'll reply. Watch for a red box on the top RH side of the home page right by the word messages. Click on the redbox and my reply will be there. RD
