All help would be awesome.
got to Profile >> Forum Profile Information >> First selection: (Personalized Picture, or I have my own pic, or I will upload my own picture)
But what if it says there was an error and my pic wasn’t an avatar?
Post the exact error message. The forum software does not know what an avatar is or isn’t, only if it’s an image file. Note that avatars have a size limit of 200x200 pixels.
