How do I change my avatar?

How do I put up an avatar of my own or choose one of the site's? I tried Profile and settings and there is no information about this whatsoever!

Under: Billing ... > Customer Service > there is a post explaining New Avatars. The post has been censored a few times but explains the process. Don't let the missing posts bother you.   Smiley Wink

 

Also; under FAQ's found under Forum Guidlines there is an explanation about creating an Avatar.

You have to make a certain number of posts before the option to change your avatar will show up.  Unfortunately, we don't know why nor how many posts you need, but I think it's a smallish number.  Keep posting, and it'll show up.

Re: How do I change my avatar?

But I just won another badge and besides I don't even have an avatar yet here at Comcast! How did you set up yours in the first place? Thanks I hope. Have a nice Mother's Day. I lost Mama in June of 2010 and I was not even allowed to leave the house to go to hospital w/ her. She left on a Saturday afternoon and passed away the same night.

From the way I read the current rules for Avatars, I believe the only type of Avatar you cannot yet get is a Custom Avatar.

 

Since you currently have the basic default Avatar I believe you could change it to one of the Comcast supplied Avatars.

 

If you first click on the blue v next to your default Avatar. You will see Settings. Click there.

 

Now click on Avatars. Do you see your Default Avatar and a field below it that lists types on Avatars? If yes, than go down to the bottom of the list. You will XfinityA, and XfinityB.

Clicking either of those shows approved Comcast avatars. One set is black, and the other is blue. You should be able to choose one of those Avatars.

 

You will need to get to about 20+ posts to qualify for a custom Avatar.

If they don't have the Avatar tab yet they aren't going to be able to change anything.

I did not realize the "Avatar" heading was missing. Thank you.

 

It seems just picking an already approved Avatar would not be a problem for a new member. I wasn't a problem when I joined. Smiley Wink

Re: How do I change my avatar?

Thanks so much, MNtundraRET! However, with only these few posts today, I was able to choose an avatar pix from my own collections. The redhead is where the 'kei' in my usernames comes from. DP was the very first anime I ever saw (1985) and it was love of anime at first sight. I still love using Kei and Yuri and their 3WA gang in all my fanfictions I write and share online. Now if I could just figure out how to import my Gmail contacts to my email acct here I'd be a happy camper indeed! Any suggestions?

Post your contacts question in the Email & Web Browsing forum.

 

Since your Avatar issue has now been solved I am going to lock this thread.
