Do you guys want to be cool like me, and have an avatar to represent your forum posts.

To upload your avatar, go to the User CP link at the top left of the forum page. Then scroll down to find edit avatar. Then upload.

You'll also notice some enhancements to your forum profile, which allow you to create social groups, add friends, and customize the profile a bit.

You can also add your photos to your profile, but clicking on the very bottom link of the user cp and adjusting the Gallery Settings.
