what is an avatar? I want to post the picture as my entry in the contest.
Your avatar is the picture you use on your profile.
Use www.tinypic.com to upload pictures (or whatever site you like). It's best if you create an account but you don't have to. If you create an account you can save all your pictures there and get the codes anytime. If you created an account go to "My Stuff" & upload the picture you want then copy the code that says "IMG Code for Forums & Message Boards" and pate it in the thread you want. If you need help let me know.
