    Using custom Avatars

    I have been asked about this by a couple of people after sending out Avatars for winners and runners up of the End of year showcase. Even if you did this when you first joined we rarely change our Avatars and therefore can forget.

    Here's a simple guide.

    Download the avatar to your PC or MAC and note where you save it.
    Click 'Settings' top right of the page.
    Click 'Edit Avatar' lower left of settings page.
    Select the 'Use custom Avatar' radio button.
    You need Option 2 - Upload Image From Your Computer
    Click 'Choose file' to find the Avatar you saved on your PC or MAC in the first step (above)
    Once you have found you Avatar click 'Save changes' and that's it.

    I didn't check if there is already a guide elsewhere: I'm sure there must be :)

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Graydon, for posting that information.
    I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong, and didn't find any other explanation of how to post an avatar.
    Found your post today, and it was easy to follow and simple do .... when you know how of course!!
    Many thanks.
