I have reconfigured the forum to accept 'User defined Avatars'.
Avatars are generally small, unique images a user can associate with themselves.
To add an Avatar simply login and go to your personal 'User Control Panel'. From there go to Profile > Edit avatar.
Browse and choose an image/photo from your own machine and click on the 'Submit' button to upload.

Hope you enjoy this added forum feature
