How to Create a Forum Avatar For Yourself **NOW WITH IMAGES YOU CAN USE!**

Ok, after a bit of trying I have figured out at least one way to create an avatar for myself here that did work. The gallery of pre-formatted images that existed at the old forum is not working, so you can follow these steps to come up with something unique for yourself.

5. Post the image in the forums here - heck go ahead & use this thread if you like.

6. Right click on the image in your post &a
