Hope I am posting in the right spot...Anybody know if I can get a new avatar on this forum without having to get pictures from a URL?  I just want to use one of my personal pics but I don't belong to any particular picture DL webpage.

I think you can send it to a mod and they will do it for you.

if you were looking to join a site, picasa is really easy to use. if you already have any google accounts, all you have to do is download it.
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

Thank you folks for the help.  I managed to accomplish my goal although somewhere along the line the picture got distorted and my strap hit me on the face.  Oh well...

Help!
My avatar has gone missing along with smileys etc. If I go into my profile I can select mine (mobile scorpion) but it will not appear on my post. I had trouble with being redirected a few days ago, google beemaster and directed to a 'dnsopelautoford' search engine? that appears okay now thanks to spybot! I also have trouble in logging in can take up to 6 go's to access the site.
Hope someone can help.
Regards

Sounds like you may have a bug of some sort.I can see your avatar in your posts just fine.
I like to use malwarebytes, spybot S&D and adaware by Lavasoft to scan for stuff.They are all free.
