    How do I Setup a Profile Picture?


    Why doesn't my profile picture show up when I post a thread or comment on a thread?

    Hello Chuck,

    It looks like you changed your "profile picture" to the car, but didn't change your "avatar" for it.

    profile picture = what shows on your user profile page

    avatar = what shows on your posts

    You can click on the Edit Avatar link in your User CP to be able to change it.


    Setting and Profile Features

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Is okay if I make the car my avatar? (btw, the "car" is a 2013 Shelby SuperSnake)
