For some reason my pic in my profile is not showing up neither is the one in the forum. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I always wondered how do they get those pics next to their names? Is there a website or something?

You can do it with any picture!  You just need to make sure that the picture meets the three criteria listed in the Settings page (found by way of the tab on your My Account main page, or the My Account drop-down menu at the top of the page).

Your picture needs to fit within these parameters:

Valid file types: gif, jpg, png    
Maximum filesize: 30kb    
Maximum Dimensions: 75px x 75px

I usually just recommend using the Paint program to resize your picture to fit the pixel size (found under Image, then Attributes).  Getting the picture within the 75 pixels x 75 pixels is the problem most people have, I think.

Here's the Help Center document for even more help :) How do I add an avatar/blinkies to my forum posts?
