Pipe avator things

How do I get one of those picture things on the side? I'm a little computer challenged.

The Saucepan Man has been trapped in the Barrow!

I must admit, I had a little difficulty with this when I got started. I couldn't get any of the avatars that are supposed to be available on the registration page.

If you have this difficulty (or if you want a different one), do a Google search for "avatar" to find sites that have them. When, you've chosen one, right click on it to add it to your favourites. Click on it in favourites, copy the web address and paste it into the relevant line on the update profile page.

Well, this worked for me, anyway. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
Do you mind? I'm busy doing the fishstick. It's a very delicate state of mind!

I too got really confused when I first got mine. I did not know that you had to post a message to see it. Remember that, because you go in and put the address for the picture in your profile, and then I would go back to a topic that I had already posted in to see if it had came up, and it never did. The easist way to get one is to go on Google and search for square shaped images, I hope you are successful [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]
