As a moderator, I spend a good bit of time in the forum.  


I've been noticing for a while now that very few of you seem to have provided an Avatar picture to 'dress up' the posts you make.


In case anyone needs information on how to do this, I've decided to post the information you'll need.




1) You will need a picture, screen-capture, drawing, etc.

      please keep in mind that the lower limit on user age for our forum is 13, so please keep it clean


       Your pic needs to be about 200 pixels X 200 pixels

       Your pic or screen-capture will need to be site-hosted to provide an URL 

            preferred hosting sites include Imgur and PhotoBucket, as these sites carry no embedded ads


           screen-captures may be taken with most computers via the Print Screen button, which will need

           extensive cropping, or by image-capture software. One of the best is Lightshot, but there are

           many others


2) If you don't already belong to a hosting site, you will need to join one, or the

    artist who prepares your picture will need to provide you with an URL from





     here's mine as an example-       http://i.imgur.com/Rbkx0fa.png


Doing the Job-


1) Look in the lower right corner of your game screen for the gear-shaped icon

    and hover over it to open the menu.

2) Click the forum link


3) When the forum opens, look in the upper right corner for your forum profile

    name and click on the arrow to open the panel.  Look for the "My Settings"







4) Click on "My Settings" to open to your profile settings, the first setting will be

    be the update link for your Avatar 



5) Click the "Change my photo" button


6) When the new panel opens, you click the fill-in button for "Use custom photo"

    enter your URL into the box provided either by hand, or by copy & paste from

   your image hosting service.




7) Click the Import button


If all has gone properly, you should now have a new Avatar


You can check this by once again opening your profile link (name) in the upper right corner, and choosing "My Profile"...


the picture you linked should be displayed.


hope this information proves useful

your friends will be glad you are happy,

and your enemies will wonder what you're up to...
