Did you know.....? An avatar is a small photo or picture that appears next to every message you post on the forums. It's a great way to personalise your messages, and it's easy to add one to your user account. Just follow these easy steps. Make sure you're logged in, and then hover over or tap your username on the right-hand side of the menu bar at the top (on a mobile this may be shortened to just an icon). This will bring up your user menu: Click on or tap the Avatar option and it will bring up the dialogue box for uploading your new avatar: Click on the "Choose File" button, and you will then be able to upload a photo from your computer. On most modern mobiles, you can select a photo from your photo album, or take a new photo with your camera. It might take a few moments to upload your new picture, then just click the "Okay" button and you're done!
