Avatar

As beautiful as you are (you gorgeous thing, you), a giant photo of you next to every comment you post would be a little distracting! This is why you need an avatar. Think of it as your own personal icon.

  1. Click your profile picture or menu in the top-right corner of the Support screen.
  2. Select Edit profile from the drop-down menu.
  3. This opens on the Avatar & Photos tab - scroll down past photo options to Avatar. You can select any of the provided avatars, or click the magenta link to add your own avatar.
  4. Follow the instructions to Choose a file to upload from your computer (make sure it meets the file type and size requirements as described), then click Upload & Continue.
  5. Crop your avatar image as desired and Save!

  1. Click your photo or menu in the upper right corner of the Support home screen
  2. Click View Profile.
