WEll, I dunno, should I let the secret out ????
............ YES, OF COURSE !
After searching the almost unlimited amount of hits on Dogpile for "avitars" I finally came up on some fun ones at http://www.animationfactory.com/index.html
Adding the avitar isn't so hard...
Just go to your profile and click on "view-update profile" Then half way down the page see Avitar ---> Select a different Avatar Image
Click that (remember if you have a popup blocker running you will need to turn it off for this process)
At the bottom of the 1st screen of avitars to choose from you will see "Use Custom URL:"
Just enter the addy of the avitar ( or animated gif) you wish to use. Click "Set URL" then after your new avitar shows up in the top of the window be sure to choose "Select this Avitar"
THAT'S IT , YOUR DONE
Resizing happens automatically
Just remember ..... I saved you HOURS!!!
