Hiya Doodad! What a great name!

Welcome Doodad (Jim) - Great to have you here ! You have a lot of great interests. I love aviation too as my dad's a pilot and we grew up flying (had our own little airstrip on our farm too). Yeah, we want to see lots of posts and lots of your photos !

Hi welcome to the forums
I've been interested in military history since I was about 5 (when I learned to read) and got into wargaming a few months ago (I;m 12)

Yeah, head on over to the Battlefields and Museums Forum - it's in the Armchair General section.

Everybody can have an avatar, go to your user CP, then chose edit avatar to pick one from the large collection available or upload one of your own. As for rank, it is determined by post count yes (except the messages you post in the off-topic forum, which aren't taken into account)

Hello!

You get rank by number of posts in certain threads (not this one, though ) and if you go into your User CP you can pick an avatar or import one from your computer. Imported ones may need resizing, though.
