not all of us understand what we are seeing on our screen.

i have seen a few comments on threads that show this to me.

i am writting this thread to help explain a few details we see on our screens.

i know it took me quite a while to learn what all of the different switches and buttons mean.
hopefully i can help a few of the newer people understand.

what you see in the section above is seen on each persons post.
it is seen on the left hand side of the page.

the picture is my "avatar".
this is a picture i have chosen for all of you to see on all of my posts.
you can select your own avatar by:
- click on the "settings" word at the top right hand side of the page.
- on the left hand side you will find a heading "edit avatar"
click on it.
- follow the onscreen prompts.
remember to keep the size of your picture below the maximum allowable size.

the name is my screen name.

the green dot tells you that i am currently on line.
if the dot was a circle, then i am not on line.

because i am a moderator, it is listed here also.
if someone holds a position in WHL it will be listed here.

the last line is only there for our amusement.
i am currently classified as "king of the jungle"
this means that i have posted a comment over 1500 times.
as you post more times your "animal kingdom creature" changes.
there are some amusing threads about this.
one of the best is Climbing the Ladder in the Animal Kingdom (http://forum.wehavelupus.com/showthread.php?5540-Climbing-the-Ladder-in-the-Animal-Kingdom&highlight=animal+kingdom)
