ALERT!

YOUR AVATAR MUST NOW BE HOSTED THROUGH YOUR PHOTO ALBUM ON OUR MEDIA PORTAL.

Click here to access your photo album page, or here to learn more.

Up on the top line, there is a circle with a down arrow. Click on that and another menu bar will open. Click on upload which will open your photo album. This is where you will upload photos and host the avatar

FWIW, this forum has the most pointlessly complicated system for avatars I've ever seen anywhere.

It is because we are large enough to kill geo cities webpage bandwidth usage if your avatar is hosted by Grammy’s Little Boy Jimmy, a site dedicated to some old lady’s Jack Russel.

So, you upload your pic here. Point to it in your account settings. And go though the same complexity and effort you would assigning a picture to a specific caller on a flip phone.

If that is too difficult you can always go without.

Was simply pointing out the deficiency. No need to be rude.
