from the Help Center:

"How do I add an avatar/blinkies to my forum posts?

To add an avatar to your public profile (which will appear on your forum posts also):

  • Go to your Account Settings
    • choose Settings from the dropdown menu under My Account in the toolbar at the top of the site.
    • Scroll down to the Public Profile section (or click the link at the top of the page to go there directly)
  • Click [BROWSE] to the right of the "Change Icon" space. This will let you browse your hard drive to find the picture you want to upload.
    • Make sure your picture is a valid file type (gif, jpg, png), and is smaller than the maximum filesize (30kb), and smaller than the maximum allowable dimensions (75px x 75px).

 This will also work in the Forum Settings to add graphics to your forum sig."

Thank you. Thought I had checked all the topics in the Help center. I spend time looking for books and checking my account but not enough time checking out the other feature offered here. Now I know where to come when I get stuck again.
