This is a simple step by step guide on how to upload an avatar on this forum as some users might find it a bit hard to figure the whole thing out.

  1. Navigate to your profile and click on "edit profile".

  2. Now you will find the option to "edit avatar".

  3. Here you will be given the option to pick your avatar type. The first option is "gravatar", which you can use when you have an account on the gravatar website. The second and more important option is "remote avatar" where you can use the url of a picture.

  4. Afterwards, insert the link of the picture you want to use. It works best with imgur.com so we advise you to upload the picture there.
    You can now pick the size you want your picture to be or leave it blank to try an automatic resize. (In order to calculate the right size we suggest you use this site)

    At last you can submit your avatar and you're done!

I hate that I'm only seeing this now. I spent 30 mins trying to figure out how to upload an avatar. Can you also please do one for the signature? Although I figured this one out, I feel like a lot will benefit from this.

We've put this thread as a sticky now - I'll post somewhere to guide users towards all the help threads too.
