    An avatar is the photo under your username. Is that what you meant?

    In online games, an avitar is the picture that represents your character.

    It's like an icon for people.

    Fabaddict, why don't you post a pic of your lovely quilting room or your stash of fabric or even better, a pic of Trudy.
    When you see mine, you will know who I am.

    There was a movie by this name, wasn't there? Did it have anything to do with representation? Never saw the movie just blue creatures on comercials for it.

    If you liked the movie Dances with Wolves, you will like the movie Avatar. It was like a sci fi Dances with Wolves. I absolutely loved the movie, it really was a good story.

    Fabaddict, my avatar is the orange tabby cat under my screen name.
