I notice we've got a lot of new members on the board, and a fair number of old ones, without avatars -- just the anonymous silhouetted headshots Ning starts us out with. It occurred to me that members might not know how easy it is to customize their av.
First, find a picture you want to use, and save it to your computer. Bold images are best, as the avs are reproduced fairly small.
Second, go to MY PAGE at the top bar of this page.
Third, move your mouse over your current avatar, and you'll see the option: CHANGE PHOTO. Click on it, and it'll take you to a page where you can upload your new avatar picture! Uploads need to be under 10MB to work, but they can be in the JPG, GIF, of PNG formats.
