    You can upload an avatar by going to the usercp in the the top menu. Then in the user control panel click on Edit Avatar. You will then bew given a choice to upload or link to an avatar.

    There is also no limit to the number of posts before you can do this.

    Thanks
    Andrew

    Andrew,

    I tried to do that but it doesn't seem to work that way.

    I must be doing something wrong. I keep going to the edit avatar page and it doesn't give me any options. It has this...

    Avatars are small graphics that are displayed under your username whenever you post.
    Do not use an avatar
    Note: if you have a custom avatar selecting this option will delete it.

    Maybe this is just something that is still in a quirky stage...

    Mine is the same as FBC's, it has Do not use avatar marked and will not let me click on it to unmark it. There is no options to use avatars.

    Mine did the same at first, but then all I had to do was hit the reset button. Be sure that the "do not use avatar" button is selected. The button itself did not work but you still have to click on it.

    What types of image files are useable? I found out that .bmp is not.

    I want to get rid of my current picture (blue shirt and USA tie) and update it with a more recent photo. How do I do this? Every time I try it tells me that the upload failed.

    It may be that the picture you are trying to upload is to large. The size should be no more than 50x50.
