Not liking the smiling rubber bands, I want to change my avatar to something -- well, something more Egyptian. I was able to find the edit Profile page, but there was no upload option. (I do NOT want to use Gravatar. If I do, it will want to change my avatar across ALL forums I am registered on.)

I note it also won't let me change my Custom Title. If I could get that to be changeable, perhaps that would fix the other problem, too.

To get your own avatar here at HG you need to make an account at gravatar using the same email as you use for signing up here at HG. Upload a non-animated picture at gravatar that is 40*40 pixels. I can't remember it but you might have to select it at gravatar as the avatar you like to use.

Then sign out here at HG and back in. It might take some hours before your avatar shows up here at HG.

Hope above is of help to you.

PS. If you by 'Custom Title' means 'Pleb', then you can not change that. Staff at HG get a custom title so people know they belong to the staff. Other people having a custom title have won it in a contest related to one of the games supported here at HG, a very few have it as a tease because of having annoyed a staff member who have a sense of humor.

Hel-LO! I specifically said I DO NOT want to use Gravatar, as that will attempt to change my avatar on ALL forums I am registered on, which I DON'T want to do.

Of course, if I did want to use Gravatar, I wouldn't be posting this thread AT ALL because the instructions for using Gravatar are clearly written on the profile update page -- seeing as how I read what's before me, I would have figured that out immediately.

Please give me instructions for changing my avatar WITHOUT Gravatar.

Sorry Henipatra. I had a blood clot in my brain last february and that makes it more difficult to understand what I read.

As far as I know, the only other way would be bugging some staffer but there is a very low chance of that to succeed. If people found out they could just start bugging a staffer then... well, I guess you get the picture. I believe the Gravatar solution was made because some at the top at HG got tired of people asking for how to get their avatar changed.

Sorry, you can't. We're going to change the ugly smiley to something more suitable next week.
