Create a Mapdot for your AgTalk profile

 

A Mapdot is another name for Avatar. An avatar is an image of your online character. On AgTalk, users have adopted Mapdots instead of Avatars. The reason for this is that instead of having an image of a character, users thought that a tiny map with a dot showing their location would be more practical. Other users immediately know where the person is from and can relate the comment to the geographical area of the author.

Follow the instructions below to create your own Mapdot.
