Call me foolish for asking this but how do you put a picture to your avatar? There seems to be no way to add it or select a picture from a gallery on my end.

Yeah, thank Vic. Linking from another website though -- what happens when that website goes down?

You lose it, and you have to repeat the whole friggin rigmarole again, with another web site.

Actually, I just struggled with different avatars images, from off https://duckduckgo.com images. I had to go on to a Socrates web page http://www.ancientgreece.com/s/People/Socrates/

Can't remember where my earlier Plato avatar came from.

Maybe they're trying to cut down on their storage space. However, it seems to me that at 60KB per avatar, there's little storage used by allowing people to upload their own pictures.

It's no big deal. It's easy enough done.

No relation! I'm sure it's not too difficult...just a bummer they don't use the native abilities of the BBS software.
