I may have asked this before and forgotten... :(

No problem :)

--> Go to the homepage
--> Most upper right corner
--> "Settings"
--> Choose your new photo
--> Scroll down and click "save"

You're a lifesaver.

The confusion arose from me only using the forum pages, which have a different menu in the top right hand corner.

Yeah, it is a bit confusing at first. Hopefully the unified header will be implemented soon to bring some structure into it.
Nice avatar choice by the way!

I want to have an avatar too ;). I click on my "avatar" in the upper right corner and see 3 things, user control panel, profile and log out, neither of those will bring me to something where I can change the avatar(!) HELP!
Many happy landings, greetings from The Netherlands!

You need to go further up, into the corner. Zoom out your browser to 90% if needed and you will see it.

I made this same mistake. Do it from the main airliners.nut page, not from a forum page.

I also had to switch browsers... I suspect I had an ad blocker issue with the interface for setting an Avatar.

I couldn't figure out how to set my avatar but I thought if I poked around in here long enough, I'd find the instructions.

Thank you so much!

Hi, I’m a bit late to the game and having the same problem. I don’t know if the system has changed or what, but oncant figure out how to change my profile pic. Has it changed? And if so could you point me in the right direction?

Thanks so much.
