    NEW POSTERS must have at least 10 posts in order to add an Avatar or Signature to their profiles. After your 10th post there is also a time delay before these options will be available (usually about 30-60 mintues)

    When these features have been enabled you will be able to hover over your username in the upper right corner and see options for Avatar and Signature .

    For assistance with these or any other Technical "how do I" questions please read the FAQ here on the Welcome Board >>***FAQ's***<< incl. AVATARS, SIGS, FINDING YOUR POSTS etc or post your questions to the Technical Support Board .

    Please do not just post randomly to increase your post count. We have plenty of threads all over the boards that you can contribute to and be able to increase your post count.

    I feel very technically challenged :( ! I can't understand how to get an avatar. When it says choose a file, I pick iPhoto because that's where my photos are. That's as far as I get. Any suggestions? I am not tech savvy at all - just surf the net and that's about it. My old avatar on The Dis was Pumba, lol, and I remember it was an option and was very easy to do - that's why I had one.

    That really sucks about not being able to post a sig or avatar until you make 10 posts...
