I noticed many people don’t have avatars for their accounts recently. I wasn’t sure if people just didn’t want to use one, or if you might not be aware you could change it and provide your own.
It is pretty easy to do overall. First start by clicking on the avatar at the top right-hand side of the page:
After doing that you’ll get a drop down menu. In that menu it will list your activity, etc on the forum, but it also has a little gear icon in the top right corner of the dropdown, like so… click it:
You’ll be taken to a Profile Page where you can modify your profile for the forum, including a spot to upload an image for your profile picture, or avatar:
You can upload an image by clicking the little pencil icon. You can also upload profile background images and more there.
Just thought I’d point this out in the event it wasn’t clear or that it was overlooked in case people wanted to add avatars to your profile.
