crazybutsound made this for me as a pictorial representation of my username. In heraldry, a coat of arms that included the device of a silver swan on a green field (background) would be described: "vert, a swan argent". Because my icon swan isn't just placidly floating on the water, the description would probably be: "vert, a swan rampant argent". (Or maybe it's puissant rather than rampant ... I'll have to check when I get home tonight.)
ANYWAY, I'm excited that I can finally load icons. I just have to know the URL so I can type it in manually, but that's a very minor inconvenience.
