Make one in the avatar creator and save it as your forum avatar.

i was about to write a post about this, too. i can't seem to find a way to use the avatar i created. maybe i'm missing something, but after saving it i couldn't find a "set as your avatar" button.

Saving your avatar:

Image

Once the avatar is ready to be saved, click on the buttons the yellow arrows are pointing to

Image

To use an avatar you've already saved, reload the avatar creator and click on "MY AVATARS" and choose the one you want. You should know that the colors in your forum avatar will be the default colors for the clothes and hair you chose, not the colors you may have changed them to.

In your case, it didn't work until I approved this post, your first one.

if a choose an "attitude" while posting (space below, Post with attitude: Select your avatar's expression) i can use the new avatar, but i have to do it for every single post. maybe i'm missing something, or maybe the forum doesn't work properly. whatever it is, i give up.

I also did everything these guys said, I'm pretty sure the whole website has bugs here and there.
I personally see everything horizontally, everyone's post is just one big line unless they make paragraphs
themselves.

Ok, that I didn't know, but it still seems like the problem is to everyone so once my post gets approved I'll
try making my avatar.

Edit: Nope. I can post like everyone but I still can't set my avatar.

I just tried with Microsoft Edge (before that it was IExplorer) and it still doesn't work. Now I don't want to download all kinds of browsers (anyway I don't care about my avatar that much) but I'm still wondering if it's a global glitch, as anyone successfully made changes to their avatars lately?
Eh buddy! I know the Mass Effect reference in my name doesn't make sense here,
but it's my way of showing you what kind of guy I am.

Foxxy above has his Avatar and he's newer than me, so it seems I have my answer: It's not a major glitch with the avatars.
That means I'm done writing in this thread since I don't care that much if mine stays default.
