How do I get an avatar for when I'm writing in forums?
top right hand corner I think...idk keep searching it took me awhile to find it myself
It's in your User CP. There should be an Edit Avatar link and an Edit Profile Picture link; you'll want both. The forum profile pic and the Profile profile pic are not the same.
look for control panel on the page. Scroll the to top and look about an inch under the banner ad and there should be control panel, FAQ, log out, etc.
