    Default How to upload an avatar

    I've looked around, and I'm probably blind but how do I upload an avatar?

    You have to upload it to an image-sharing website, and then reference it's URL there.

    No, like where in the settings do I put it in. I can't find it.

    I don't know how out of date it is, but Gorbash Kazdar made this thread and it is stickied at the top of this forum.

    I don't know if these will work on a mobile device, so if you are on one, sorry.

    Go to settings (in the upper right corner of the screen, between "My Profile" and "log out".

    Spoiler: Step 1
    Show


    You should see a list of subscribed threads with new posts, a list of all your infractions (if you have any), and a list of things down the left side with headings like "My Subscriptions", "My messages", and "My Settings". Find the link labeled "General Settings" under "Account". It is between "Edit Email & Password" and "Edit Ignore List".

    Spoiler: Step 2
    Show


    After following that link you will find a page with every setting available. Down at the very bottom of the page (right above the bottom Ad), you should see an entry labeled "custom avatar url". Paste the url in that box. The heading above that allows you to set which Order of the Stick avatar you use, if you are using one. Right above that is a radio-buttoned list of avatar choices. Default is "none". Choosing "Order of the Stick" will display the avatar selected in the option just below. Choosing "Custom" will display the image linked to by the URL you put inside the very bottom entry.

    Spoiler: step 3

    I'll try to get some pictures of all these things in just a minute.

    Edit: And now there are pictures created by your's truly.

    Setting -> General Settings (on the left hand side panel, halfway down) -> Custom Avatar URL (at the very bottom)
