    How to add my own avatar?

    I just registered to this forum, can't tell if it's still active, but if it is, could someone please tell me how to add my own avatar? All I can see is options for avatars of ribbons and cartoon characters; but no place to upload my own display picture - even though I see many users have their own ?

    Thank you

    Hello, Nathan-

    If you click on "Settings" at the top of the screen, you'll be taken to a page where you can modify "My Settings." Choose Edit Avatar, and choose Option 2 - Upload Image From Your Computer. Please keep in mind that there is a maximum size for your avatar image.

    Good luck to you!
