Been out of the loop.....sorry it took so long about the avatar. Try this & see if it works for you.

To set your own avatar. First thing: gif image must be stored online or it won’t be visible. Can’t link it directly from your PC.

Once in your profile choose “Select a different avatar image”

In the box that says “Use Custom URL:” copy & paste the URL where your image is stored. It will look something like this:

click “set URL”

click “select this avatar”

You’ll be taken back to your profile page. Click “update profile”

Now you’re all ready to go. wink

Happy avataring!!! :p
