A quick guide on how to load your own avatar, will keep it as simple as I can, if your still stuck just post questions on this thread ;)

So here we go....
Top of screen, click on, user control panel
On left is a box called Options
click on, Profile, you should see one called edit avatar

Now you will see a box with some details about size limit (and current image if you have one already) so all you have to do now is find a link to the image you want.

I use photobucket for my images (its free) so resize the photo you want to use to 100x100 and upload it to photobucket or what ever place you use to host your photos on the internet. Once you have done that you should see a URL or links for that photo.

Copy the link, then paste it into the box, link off-site, hit the submit button, you will know if its worked, if not try it in the box above..... hope that works, like I said thats a very quick guide so feel free to ask questions, also if your still stuck I can do it for you if you post the image up on here I can sort it for you. Good luck :)

6 KB is a bit too low (100x100 also, for that matter) - is it possible to set it higher?
