for a custom avatar-
you need to have it on a webserver somewhere, then fill in that address in the avatar selection box in edit profile
they are 48 pixels square, THAT IS VERY IMPORTANT.
if you do not have access to a webserver, i can put it on the AC.com site, if you send me the file
once it is on a webserver:
go to the message board:
click on " my profile ", then click on: " View/Update Profile "
go down to Avatar Image:
then click on:
Select a different Avatar Image
at the bottom of the window that pops up, below the avatars, it says
Use Custom URL:
type in the web address, something like:
if you send me the file to put onto the AC.com servers, wait til i say its there before changing your profile....
