    Hi all,

    I read the FAQ and I still can't figure out how to add a profile pic. Can someone tell me how in super simple terms please? I'm not particularly bright and on computer stuff even less so.
    Thanks much

    It's been a long time but if memory serves me correctly, you have to have a certain number of posts before the site allows you to change your avatar.

    Hi there
    First you click the little blue triangle beside your name.
    A little menu should come up and the third option from the bottom should be
    Change my avatar
    You click on that and then it will ask you to choose a file from your computer or iPad
    Which is really just choosing your picture
    After you have choosen your avatar you click on the picture and click submit
    After a few mins the picture should, be loaded up as your avatar
    Goodluck

    X2! If you are on a laptop...top right corner where it says My Profle...click there. Then beneath the image of the chicken (your present avatar) click beneath where it says, Change Avatar. Follow the steps to your system and submit a picture. :) You do not need 10 to 20 posts to change your avatar. This applies to posting ads in our BST section, adding a signature or writing up an article. :)
