Hi! I've been a fan of this site for quite some time now, and have decided to make an account. First of all, I have no idea how to get my avatar going as it only leads me to watch a video. I've searched, but have found most of the tutorials are out of date, and the ATS media isn't the same anymore. I've uploaded it, and have gotten to the point where it tells me "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."

Clicking their only leads me to watch a video that I don't want to watch, help would be appreciated!

Hi and welcome to the Family, Don't fret we'll get it working for you lol. At the top of your page there is a navigation bar. Click the "Tools" button. When the page changes directly under the same tools button will be an ATSuploads button click that. The upload button will show on the next page in the left top corner. click it and upload your image.

When it is uploaded it will show on that page. Click the image you just uploaded and it will change pages to one set for that image. Under the image it will have options. Click the Avatar option. This will change the page again. and you will be at your tools page again. you will notice the Avatar section is highlighted in dark grey. Click the submit button in that section and POOF your done.
