Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Is there a way to choose your own avatar?

Or are the ones that come up your only option? I went to sports and was hoping for an Alabama Football avatar or just a script A... Just wondering.

3. I am pretty sure it is only star members that can do that...

Though I do know that once your star goes away, your custom avatar stays

5. Well, let me put it this way

...My Little Pony is not part of DU's avatar stock

You have to be a star member to have your own uploaded avatar. it's not expensive!

6. Yes, you may upload your own avatar. Link:

.
Go here: http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=profile&uid=149022

Then where it says "Avatar", lower left, click on "edit" and you can upload your own.

It has to fit the criteria described.

My avatar is a picture of my dog.
