Topic: Fun with avatar (image below my name)
An avatar is a small image that will be displayed with all your posts. To create your own avatar, do the following:
Open an image/photo of your choice with any image/photo editor such as iPhoto or Photoshop. Resize the image to 60 x 60 pixels and less than 10240 bytes (10 KB). Name and save the photo as jpg or GIF file.
Login then go to <Profile/Personality>.
Check the <Use avatar> box and scroll down to the bottom of the screen.
Click on <upload avatar>. The checkbox <Use avatar> must be checked in order for the avatar to be visible in your posts.
Click on <Choose File> and select the saved jpg/GIF file, then click <Upload>.
You may change/remove your avatar at any time by repeating the above.
