OK, let me try again.
As stated previously, the option to upload an avatar from your computer has been removed as it was used to upload a script to hack the forum. You can still have a personalized avatar, but the image must be hosted somewhere else (ie. ImageShack, Picassa, etc) and linked to.
Use the I have my own pic:
option and put the link to the image in the field.Note:
This is a link to the actual image, NOT the hosting webpage showing the image. The link should end with .JPG, .jpeg, or .jpg If you use Firefox, you acan right click on the image displayed on your host webpage and select Copy Image Location
and then do a paste in the field. Other browser have the same option with a slightly different option name.
