To anyone who can help me: I want to use an avatar but cannot work out how to do it! I tried a forum search to no avail (maybe I can't search properly either lol).

When I try to upload one, I get the 'no permission' message. When I specify a URL, I get the 'changes applied' message but still no joy! I cannot see that I have permission to specify URL 'tho I can see permission to use avatar http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

In case you're wondering, the file I want to use is 63 x 65 gif:

This is what I did. Used the URL from the cat in your post and entered it in the URL line of edit avatar. Clicked on the upload button. On the profile page, clicked on submit.
The forum software should start displaying it within the next 30 minutes.

Wow - that was fast!

Thank you very much http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I just checked my profile & there it is!

Now I'm worried that I should place so much importance on it & get excited over it, at my age!!! Jeeze, I haven't grown up! lol.

Again, many thanks.
