    Welcome to Glock Talk, I'm pretty new myself.

    Avatar; I found out by kind of playing around.

    You go into your user cp, select edit avatar. you can use one of the sites avatars or you can use a picture that lives on your computer.

    I'm not exactly sure, but there may be a minimum post-count and/or time-on-board requirement before you can upload an Avatar, so if you can't find that function at first, give it a month or so and then look again.

    I thought at one point it was 50 posts minimum but seeing Ricky was able to attach one it's either less or none at all now. In case you didn't know the avatar has to be resized fairly small.

    I thought there would be a restriction also, but I just played around and it let me do it.

    Best,

    Ricky

    Sweet! I was able to set mine :D
    I kept wondering why my "Profile Picture" wasn't showing up.

    "Avatar" is not the same thing as "Profile Picture"
