I followed the directions and go to the point where it says 'select your avatar'. Should there be a drop down menu with avatars to choose from or am I to go to the Gravatar site to choose one?

1. Go to your User Control Panel

2. In the left middle of the screen, click on the Profile tab that's to the right of the Overview tab.

3. Third option down is Edit Avatar. Choose that.

4. From here, you have options. If you have a photo from your computer, an image that you like or that you usually use as your avatar/icon, click on CHOOSE FILE. Locate the image on your computer and upload from that point.

5. If you want to upload an image from somewhere else on that internet, you can input that image URL on the black line next to "Upload from a URL".

6. For people using a Gravatar, click on the Avatar Type drop down box and change the option to Gravatar. The screen will change a little, and there will now be a spot to input your Gravatar email, and photo dimensions if you wish.

7. Once you've uploaded your avatar or connected your Gravatar, hit Submit.
