Avatars differentiate members here on Tinnitus Talk and they give a more personal feeling. It's always kind of boring when you don't have an avatar set. When logged in to Tinnitus Talk, go to https://www.tinnitustalk.com/account/personal-details Right there you'll see the Avatar box, click it. It's really an easy process. You just need to find a pic that is preferably at least 200x200 pixels (up to 200 kilobytes (kB) in size). It doesn't need to be a picture of yourself, although it of course can be if you so like. Any picture is better than the default (no avatar at all) one. Thanks! PS. You can also use Gravatar (globally recognized avatar). It's set from the same Avatar box I described above.
