Hey there

To get an avatar, find an image you like (I guess you've already done that) then you need to get it on the Internet, by using a free hosting service or getting someone to host it for you. Free hosting services include: Photobucket, Image Shcak and Village Photos.

When it is hosted, copy and paste the URL of the image into the box on the 'Edit Avatar Settings' page in 'My Controls'.

Then shout: "Fac me cocleario vomere!"

This guide was brought to you by espresso, Pink Floyd and Dylan Moran

I can't see anything where your avatar should be. Is that what you meant?

Just checked out Image Shack, I don't normally use it, and if you are using the bottom url it should work. Hmm.. I'm going to try switching my hosting for my avatar over the Image Shack and see what happens.
