When you refer to another geek in a forum, is there an easy way to show their avatar instead of just using their name?

I think geeks are much more recongnizable by their image than by their name.

What says you?

I don't know if that'd work very well,
. Maybe.

Yup. Using windows I right-click the avatar and view properties. Copy and paste the address of the avatar and use the "img" tags in your post to show the avatar...

I would just right-click on the avatar, select "Copy Image Location" and then hit Control & V inside the image tags, if I wanted to talk about you


and Sean,


and Rick,



EDIT: The image tags I'm referring to are IMG and /IMG inside of [ and ]

I think this context menu item isn't available for IE users. Just another reason to use FireFox.

This will work, but it won't reflect their current avatar if they change it.

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

True for some, but not for others. I fall in the latter category since I change my avatar quite a bit.
