Hey!! Very Happy

Welcome in!!!I'm sure you will enjoy it here. The same thing happened to me when i arrived here with the avatar gallery. I suggest you simply press browse and get one off your own computer. Only certain sizes actually work, so you might want to try going into google and searching for small images, then saving them on your computer,and then selecting what you like as your avatar using the same proccess you did before except by pressing browse, and going into the file or document on your computer you saved it under and pressing submit on your profile.. That should work!

Sorry if those instructions were a little confusing.. I'm sure you'll find it out.

Good tip, and thanks for being my first reply post! At least now I've found his forum my mates won't have to listen to me talk about ancient history. My friends started off totally uninterested, and now I've converted them, even into trips to the library for books! I have o read that Plutarch book everyon is on about, I always ad a thing about Alexander from when I was young, but watching the film just got me right back into him. So I'll try the Google thing...

Yeah, well, it started a bit like that than they kind of got more into it, like one has watched the film a few times now, and another once but wants me to tell her the story and than watch it again, so she gets it all Shocked . She's really into anything ancient now!! I seem to have that affect on people Wink , she borrows all my DVD's CD's and books!
So you love Malta eh? me too, I'm half English half Maltese, spent half my life in England half in Malta, but there just seems more to enjoy out here Laughing .
Have you been here on holiday? Where are you?

It's our duty surely to spread knowledge in an interesting way Wink
Yeah, it's great here, but it's nice to come on here and find speople to talk to in my own language! I might be going back to England for a break after Christmas to see my brother and sort some stuff there, I'm originally from London but last lived where he lives now in Wiltshire, so thinking about finding a flat there...I'll just miss Malta so much and my friends here, the little history converts bless 'em! I'm still trying to sort my Avatar with no luck, I tried saving some images but than you have the problem of the size, with it not being too big and all that.
Have you read A Murder in Babylon, I saw it on some site about the cause of Alexanders death, I really fancy reading it, wondered if anyone knows if it's any good?

Yeah, thanks, it's seems great, feel really ancient history obesessed now being here but I wouldn't want to be in any other forum Smile

I saw a post from a member, about some opinion poll on Hephaistion- for Hephaistion fans who check for his name inthe index, feel down about the lack of abundant coverage on such an important and intriguing figure etc- and I clicked on the link and it wasn't working, don't know if the member knows it's still not working, or something wrong I did cos I got the survey site just couldn't find my way to that- but than it sounds like me!
