There was an issue with setting images as Avatars, thanks to @injeans for recognizing this, and bringing it to my attention! This has now been fixed! So if you have tried to upload your avatar. and have not been successful, please try again!!

I encourage you to post your questions on the community!
Another tip: I have seen several members have uploaded images on their profile that look like there were intended to be set as their avatar. So try this, click on your avatar in the top right corner of the page, then select Profile from the drop down, Find your avatar on the left and look for the little edit button next to it, click it and select "Choose another avatar". you should now see 4 tabs to choose from:
FROM MY COMPUTER
FROM MY ALBUMS
FROM ANOTHER SITE
FROM THE COMMUNITY
Make your selection add your new avatar, and tada, you now have a custom avatar!
I am trying to do this. I get the message
How long does it take for approval?
