"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

Once you are able to change your profile picture (avatar), let us know about the image you have chosen.

(If you change it later too.)

To change your profile picture. Go to your profile and hover your mouse over the picture you wish to change. You should see the message "Change Picture". Click on it and upload a new picture (not too large please - 250 x 250 seems to be the best size).

Mine used to be a bit boring, but self explanatory. Now I have a Shadok avatar, which I created myself. Shadoks are cartoon characters from France, but they are also the admins on our Discord channel.

    I have changed my avatar into my dog because I love it so much. It is always glad when I come home and its eyes always shine for me.

    I drew a picture of a yellowtail by myself. It's so simple that it can be seen as any other kinds of fish though.

    Nice drawing @Yellowtail. Shouldn't it have a yellow tail?

  • prateekprateek Posts: 243 ✭✭✭
    My avatar is painting of mine and I want to be what I am. So I have used this avatar on my profile picture. :)
  • YellowtailYellowtail Posts: 767 ✭✭✭✭
    You're right that the tail should be yellow. But I don't worry about the details!

    I'm not fond of this black faced, smiling avatar in pink background. I look forward to having more options to choose avatars. I just joined, so am trying to participate in leaving comments while learning what's here in the forum.
  • LynneLynne Teach HomePosts: 9,876 mod
    @clair - You should be able to change your avatar now. (There is a reason for the restriction. Some "new members" can be naughty, and there's only so many naughty pictures I can be bothered to look at.) :disappointed:

    Your dog is adorable. I bet it is wonderful to go home and see it every day. I have a cat, but she ignores me most of the time, so it just isn't the same!

    I am a curious to discover the world dodgie, playful and friendly, but barking at reptiles.
  • YellowtailYellowtail Posts: 767 ✭✭✭✭
    Hi @Jobric!
    As far as I know, getting the second star will allow you to change the avatar. And all you need for that is just a few more posting. Good luck!

  • gokergoker Posts: 66 ✭✭
    I prefer hang out and work at nights like owls.
    Also i think this animals are interesting and cool.
    I found my avatar on google.
  • ZomZom Shadok Posts: 2,880 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    Okay @goker, you're a night owls. Often owls are depicted as being wise and thoughtful and so I was very curious about which characteristic you'll choose. ^^
    It befits a man to be merry and glad
    Until the day of his death.
  • gokergoker Posts: 66 ✭✭
    Really good question, i liked it.
    I would choose thoughtful. I am very young to be wise but i'm working on it.
    And i didn't see your answer about why did you choose your avatar, why? :)

    My choise of avatar is a butterfly. I like butterflies, I find them fascinating! When they are caterpillars they struggle for being butterflies and this is very impressive !

    You can be born like a caterpillar but if you struggle you can be a butterfly. This is in your hand!
    Everytime I see a butterfly this is what I think and I find courage and endurance.
  • hazel27hazel27 Posts: 570 ✭✭✭
    In my avatar is a picture of my cat Milka. Do you believe she turns 18 this year? :p
  • mohit_singhmohit_singh Posts: 2,203 ✭✭✭✭
    She became adult now. You have to find tomcat for her. Invite us when you fixed their marriage :D ;) @hazel27
  • mohit_singhmohit_singh Posts: 2,203 ✭✭✭✭
    I liked your avatar and also the way you explained the things about butterflies. Thumbs up! @arzulita
  • DeniscorrectDeniscorrect Posts: 23 ✭✭
