and this forum software auto resized it to fit into 150 x 150, perfectly.
Very easy for us.
I like seeing your avatars at a bigger size, Bux. (nudge, nudge, say no more )
Hey thanks Kail.
Great to see you here.
> & i like your latest grim faced avatar.
yes i loved the very big [ 150x300 ] avatar size on 'closing-forum'
but i am pleased that our avatars here can be a good size.
i enjoyed editing plenty of avatars at 150x300.
and i also display them across my desktop background
as a tiled image: they look great in rows across the screen.
in time, i might edit a few new avatars to full 150x150 size
so they look bigger here, like yours does.
[ i suppose i shall have to crop the top half of a female figure, to get maximum beautiful face and cleavage into a square avatar? it used to be very hard to achieve that when our oldest avatars had to be just 64x64.]
how many posts gets us to 2 stars, please? And how many stars lets us type our own customised user-title, like yours? Hope i am not being too nosey? ( then she put away her powerful night vision binoculars and slid down the high flagpole on top of her high tower, like a serpent... )
Good questions, I updated the thread title and first post to cover them.
You were the guinea pig. I checked your custom title on the Conan.com forum and was able to give you one on here. Let me know if you want a different one.
If anyone wants a custom title, just post here and I'll add it for you.
thanks for your quick answers
and special thanks and hugs for the lovely custom title.
Now this forum really feels like my new home from home.
tis great to see so many familiar names joining here.

Hi, Jason -
A longtime fan but not an active fan of Conan and REH, but I have become inspired as a result of a confluence of stimuli which was not available to me when I first read the Gnome Press Conan books back in the 1950's. Most recently, it has been watching Conan the Barbarian (the Milius/Schwarzenegger version), checking out a lot of things on the Internet, and especially reading Novalyne Price Ellis's wonderful memoir of her relationship with REH, "One Who Walked Alone," which I just finished. Anyway, I have now joined the REH Foundation and this board, with the user name of "valeriaspirit," which seems a tad presumptuous for a newbie, but I was enthralled by the character of Valeria back when I first read the Conan stories - used to daydream about being her and buckling my swash with Conan. So here I am. I have stolen and partially cropped a .jpg of the posthumous Valeria from the movie, and I will try to upload it here, but I'm not sure if it's suitable. I've got lots of experience with discussion groups but mostly in the form of email discussion lists, which operate somewhat differently than this type of board. But I'm happy to be here and hope you will be able to help me if it turns out I need it!
Although I seem to have succeeded in uploading my pic to the proposed message, I must confess that I don't know how to get it positioned as an avatar in the left-hand margin, so I would especially like to ask for your help with that.
