An avatar is the small image you see on your profile. It also shows in other locations, such as next to your name on Message Wall posts. It's a good way to identify yourself on the wiki, giving people a feel for who you are.
To upload an avatar for your profile:
- Save your chosen image to your computer (if not there already).
- Go to your user page.
- Mouse over your current avatar, then click the "Edit avatar" link that appears.
- Press the "Choose file" button and choose your image from your computer.
- Click the "Save, I'm Done" button to save your avatar.
You can repeat the same process to change your avatar to a new image.
