Not sure if you can actually upload an avatar, these days. Much easier to link to it from a hosting website, like http://photobucket.com.

Because, as Pietro rightly pointed out, you can't directly upload them. You have to link to a hosting site.

I was once reprimanded for having as my avatar a balloon knot. Laughing

Are you sure it wasn't an artificial vagina? Laughing

In fairness, I was once reprimanded for having an avator pic of a toilet bowl with poop in it.

Most people would probably prefer the balloon knot. Razz

The term balloon knot was a mod's carefully-chosen euphemism for the anatomical close-up I was using.

I'd smugly expected it to be overlooked but had not taken into account his eagle eye. Wink

Balloon knot - still makes me laugh. Laughing

Cheers everybody,
