Go to your left on BB PROFILE click on it and go to options, down at the bottom is where you add your avatar..it has to be small so you will need to shrink it alot..

NASDBOY, I tried what you suggested, but can't get it to work, clicking left at the Bulletin Board profile just gets me my profile, no options come up. I hate computers sometimes!!!

Dono........What's offensive? ... is that the opposite of defensive.......

Catmando.....an avitar can only by 50 X 50 pixels...so it fits in the area alloted. So find a pic you like and then use a program ...something like Paint Shop and resize it to the 50 X 50 and then transfer it to the server. If you need any help let me know

what I did was right click on something I liked and saved it. Then I went to this site

http://www.gifworks.com/
click on FILE
FILE OPEN
METHOD 2 and browse and upload your picture
EDIT
RESIZE AND CROP
then change it to the size you need it and resave

then come here and use it under bbprofile and edit options

Probably not the easiest but it was the quickest for me.

I have some avatars and instructions you can start with here. You might want to print it or open another browser window, then go step by step.

http://www.mapa.net/forums/misc.php?...on=showavatars You can save any image by RIght clicking on it and select "SAVE AS"

1. Once in your BB Profile found in the left frame, select EDIT OPTIONS (not shouting)

2. Now at the bottom of the screen, click on CHANGE AVATAR

3. Now at the bottom of the next screen, click on the radio round button that says "Use Custom Avatar" - Yes

4. Then upload the one you want by clicking on browse. It has to be 64x64 or smaller.

Hope this helps. Below is an example of a Scarab avatar, the Conseco Scarab for instance.
