Just to be clear, the avatar photo should show your face so that all our members have an idea who they are communicating with.

Hi Dave, Trying to include a photo or 'Avatar' as it puts it but all I get is that I need to change my URL what in plain English is that?

Les, welcome to the forum Wink
URL stands for "Uniform Resource Locator", and is the address for a "resource" on the World Wide Web.
If you had a photo hosted on a website, such as Photobucket, each image would have its own address or URL.
Was there not an option to "Browse" your PC for a picture directly from your hard drive?

Hello, new member Michael here. I've followed your instructions and I too can only see an error message when I go to "change avatar". There isn't no option to browse photos on my pc or to select a URL, it just says 
  • The URL you entered for your avatar does not appear to be valid. Please ensure you enter a valid URL.
    Any suggestions for how to fix this would be gratefully received, cheers Smile

When I click on "change avatar" it says i'm using the wrong URL, I've used both links on the Email.
