I've noticed that a few of you don't have avatars yet. An avatar can be pretty much any image although, if you look at the size of the circular boxes that the avatar is presented in, you'll see that it might best not to include one that requires a lot of detail, such as a group photo or something. If choosing a photo, it doesn't actually have to be of you, but pick one where the face is roughly centered in the photo. Pretty much any other image will work, as well. There may be limits on the size that the forum software will allow, as I haven't looked into that yet, but if it will accept it, the software will resize it to fit the box. To change your avatar, click on your profile (upper right). You should be presented with a pop-up selection of pages. Choose the one that reads, "Personal Details." Click on the default image to change your avatar. You will then be prompted to choose an image from somewhere on your computer. In this section, you will see other options, such as gender options, where you may choose for that to be unspecified to other members of the forum. You may also opt to show only the day and month of your birth, so that people can wish you a happy birthday, to show only the year of your birth, both, or neither. If you wish, you may also tell us a little bit about yourself. When you're through, don't forget to click the "Save Changes" button near the bottom.
