    I cannot find a way to change the gray female image to a different one by my name username. Does anyone know how?

    I think you have to wait until you've been here for longer. Try posting more.

    I'm going to tell you how I change my avatar. If I were you, with "gray girl" symbol, I would click on the avatar, which will take you to your profile page, where there are various things that you can do. However, if you want to change the avatar picture, you click on your avatar while in the profile page setting. When I do that, the avatar editor page comes up. There are directions that tell you what size picture can be used. Since I had a picture on my computer that I liked a lot, I was able to import that and edit to meet the forum guidelines and then confirm that I was willing to either delete or, in my case, save my prior avatar to my computer.

    I do know that there are often time frames that need to be met by forum members for many of the privileges, but I don't remember that being the case with the avatar. Please understand that times change and guidelines change, and I have been around here long enough to have "earned" some of these things like private messaging, etc., but I don't remember the avatar edit as being all that complicated once I figured out the basics. If you can't access the avatar editor, you may have to wait for enough posts and interactions to gain access. Best of luck.

    Sing- I am not sure if you have to wait b/c Collie and Muffy both were able to add their pics.
    I think/hope Vickilyn's directions help you.

    It looks like it was a certain amount of time or number of posts. As you can see, I "upgraded" from PT.

    You should be able to do so once your posting count increases.
    In the meantime, :welcome::atoz_love:

    Welcome! I noticed people were able to change their pictures after about 10-20 posts/ comments. You should be able to do it soon!! :)
