Following on the great success of other avatar changes, I thought I would have a change. So, much work by my PR consultants, numerous focus groups and artistic labour have borne fruit...

Wish I knew how to make an avatar, I've seen it explained on Melnet but have never managed to understand a word of it.  ???

You need any form of image editor, use the change sixe (or similar) options to aim for an 80x80 pixel image. Submit it and all should be well. It is a good idea to "trim"  to exactly what you want and no more before doing the reduction (OP please note)
