After seeing many, many "whats, hows, and huhs" about avaters, signature, amd members, I thought Id write a little How-To on them. This will explain everything step-by-step so that for even people who just started using online message boards can use these great features. Enougt talk lets get started! Avatar These things are little images displayed under your user name. They can be anything you like as long they are rated "PG" and follow the AC rules you have *read* at the time you signed up. **You must have at lest 50 posts before you can do this**Please dont make pointless posts just to get this option** Your avater must be 150x150 pixles at most. They also must not be anymore than 19.5kb (which ever is smaller). Just for you to get an idea a 150x150 box looks like: Step-By-Step: 1) Find a picture you want to use 2) Resize it using a graphics program. Do a google search, because thats another how-to itself. 3) Its time to upload it on to the AC site. Place the image somewhere you can get to. I suggest your desktop sublime1184 Adds: Saving an image. If you find an image online that you wish to have as an avatar, use your right-mouse button to click on the image and choose "Save Image As" (FireFox's Option) or "Save Picture As" (Internet Explorer's Option). Then save the image to the location that you want on your computer. Once saved, that is what Kasakato is meaning by placing the image. 4) Click to "User CP" at the top any AC page. 5) On the left hand side, click "Edit Avatar" 6) Slect "Custom Avatar, and then click "Browse" 7) Go to where you saved your avatar. It should be on you desktop, like I said in step 3. Then click "Open" 8) Click "Save Changes" 9) Enjoy your avatar! From Dale W.: Thanks for adding this in, we do apreciate it. I would like to add that we ask you to not use animated avatars as they are very distracting when reading posts.
