There are quite a few users without avatars on here (the images show each time you post) , but as it's a great way to easily identify yourself I thought I'd post this to show you where to get one and how to upload it to the site.

Avatarist is a handy directory that shows lots of avatar images : http://www.avatarist.com/

Just pick one of those and save the image to your PC, then visit the User Control Panel and click "edit avatar" (or click here) and upload the image you saved to W7Forums and click save.

It will now appear on all your posts :)

Thank you Ian

do i have to post so many times before my avatar shows up ?
It should show up straight away - I think you have put up a "profile picture" (that shows up on your profile page) rather than an avatar. It you upload the image as an avatar too, it should work :)

Thanks Ian

Typed my name and search Wikipedia - I didnt know there was a puppet with my name - I was going to use the Big Red Dog - I may change it later though

I did have to make my downloaded image smaller too. 100x100 pixel

I'm not sure what you mean? Avatars are just little image files, so you can even use Windows Paint to make one :)
