Go under profile near the top of your screen and then click on 'Forum Profile'. From here, you should be able to select a picture from your hard drive or flash drive or can also enter a URL from a website. Hope this helps.

Believe me, if you are going to take avatar advice from anyone, Mirror Image is your man!!  I'm not sure if your avatar is now changed as you want, if not, let me know.

Where is it?

Okay, let me see if I can help you some more:

Go to the top of your screen, do you see where it says Hello Itullian? Right under your picture it has some options: Home, Help, Search, Profile, My Messages, Calender, Members, and Logout. Hover you mouse over "Profile" and you will see some more options appear, click on Forum Profile. From there it should take you to your edit profile page. Here you should be able to change your avatar either by URL or from an image from your own computer. Once you've selected the image you want, scroll down the page and you will see "Change Profile" in the right-hand side. Click on that and your new avatar image should be saved. Also on the profile edit page you can write in what you're currently listening to, where you live, and a caption to go underneath your avatar.

Hope this helps. 8)

I fixed that for you...

That being said, I am honestly surprised at how long you've been Sibelius. Nice work!

But . . . you and I know there's a server in Arapahoe County where each and every avatar of John's is stored . . . .

Claiming that a your avatar will be permanent seems to be a sign of imminent change...

Yes I did! I forgot to say something. Matt Groening has great taste in music (although, I admit that I've never seen Futurama).
