I can see your profile avatar now, are you having trouble changing it?

It's linked to a Facebook profile pic, not uploaded. I'd prefer to upload a different picture here. I shouldn't have to put it in Facebook in order to use it though. Smiley Tongue

Hi

My avatar is most definitely not my Facebook profile.  

I was given the chance to upload; it wasn't greyed out.

I'm unable to upload an avatar. I only get a empty dialog box.

 

I tried several browsers without success. How can I proceed?
