    What one from that page do you like?

    This is the coast gaurd one.

    http://www.usinsignia.com/35HL_sm.jpg

    I right clicked an image and picked "Properties."

    Keep in mind a forum avatar needs to be small, 50x50 looks best.

    I can help more, just need more info from you.

    Here are some avatars I uploaded to get people started a long time back. Most are unused these days, so take your pick :

    try

    www.gamespy.com/avatars/

    in your 'My Forum settings' page, set the URL of the image you like: for example

    http://www.gamespy.com/avatars/av/SO/so45.gif

    for a thundercats avatar. quite cool.

    hope that helps a bit.

    Semper what? "Semper" means "Always" so saying "Always to all" doesnt seem to make much sense just confused
