Do you have any friends with a really cool avatar? What do you think is the best type of avatar? Whose avatar on hubpages is your favorite and why?
And why did you choose your own avatar?
I like Sab Oh's too....and Beth yours is pretty Canadiana!
Why, thank you!! I love my country!!! I like yours too Someway -- I can feel the wind in my hair!
I*N*V*I*C*T*U*S had a cool one -- multi colored and mesmerizing, but may have changed it by now.
Don't forget Manlypoetryman and his tractors -- always a tractor!
If someone were starting on HubPages, how would you advise they get an avatar? I got mine from Zwinky and it downloaded loads of "free" stuff onto my computer, it took my tech savvy son ages to get rid of it.
Are there any sites you can make an avatar with less spam, or how else would you get an avatar?
You can use any picture that you have on your computer as long as you either took it yourself or else it's a public-domain type type of thing. As long as you don't use a picture that someone else owns the copyright to you, you can go to where you change your image, browse your own files, get the picture, and then crop it. If you have a picture of yourself, you can use that if you want. If one on your PC is too big you can shrink it first (if you don't know how, come back on here and ask - or have your son do it), and then it may crop better once you're uploaded it.
So, I'd advise find a picture you like but won't infringe on anyone's copyrights (and get in trouble as a result of it), and use one that you just kind of like. You can always easily change it, so if you only sort of like it, you can use it for awhile until you find or take a better one. You may want to consider whether you're here just for fun or want a picture that may seem like you want your writing taken seriously.
I use the one I have (for now, but for quite awhile) because it's kind of gender-neutral but also pretty and transparent (which, to me, is feminine - and I didn't want "completely gender neutral". I liked that it's solid but also kind of ethereal - and natural, but not too earthy. Not everyone takes them all that seriously. I wanted one I could transport to other sites, though; so it had to have a certain kind of "stability" and "seriousness" to it. When all is said and done, I like the ones with people's real faces.

I do, I am a New Zealand Artist, and we sit around debating or having what we call chin wags, Unfortunately I have French, and Latina blood, which is not always countered by the pragmatism of my German, ancestory.

Ha! Not that big, but good enough to motivate others to stop thinking you can't make a few bob. In the last six weeks, I've made an extra *copying from calculator* $196.36 (adsense and amazon).Not breaking the bank but evidence that time and effort and a kick up the seat of the pants from...

I always liked to wash mine by dangling them in a bucket of soapy water. I find it's easiest to do it straight away, right after using them. Makes the grass come off a lot easier.Nothing like dried grass stuck to them.
