How can I change or remove my avatar?
It only takes a few clicks to change or remove your avatar!
First, click on ‘settings’ in the bottom left of your screen:
At the top of your settings page, you’ll see your current avatar.
Click on the avatar where it says ‘change’ to upload a new one.
You’ll then be prompted to select a file from your computer to upload.
Or, if you want to delete it without adding a new one, click on the ‘X’ in the top right corner of the avatar.
Your avatar should be square, and at least 175 x 175 pixels, otherwise it may appear stretched or blurred in some areas of the site.
You can use any common image file type, such as .jpeg, .png, .bmp, or even use an animated .gif image! If you do use an animated .gif for your avatar, the animation will only show on your profile page, not other areas of the site such as forum posts or while playing games.
NOTE: if you do not see the option to change your avatar, your account may be too new, or may be restricted in some way. Please see here.
