    All users have a small picture next to their user name. If you didn't edit yours, it will use the default (the male silhouette). If you click on your silhouette you will be sent to your page. Just below the silhouette you'll see a line that says "edit my page." From there you can switch to your Yahoo! Avatar (if you don't have one, you can create one) or to your Yahoo! 360 picture (again, you can create a Yahoo! 360 page if you don't have one yet). This should help you out.

    If you want to use one of the cartoon 'avatars' then It's a two step process

    1) Create your avatar

    Go to your Answers profile page

    In the 'Picture' section, click on "Edit My Avatar"

    That takes you to the Avatars site where you can create your avatar

    2) Display your avatar on Answers

    Back on your Answers profile page,

    In the Picture section, select "Use My Yahoo Avatar"


    If you want to use some other pic or a photo, then this requires a 360 account and this is a 3 step process.

    1) You'll need to create your Yahoo! 360 account.

    NOTE: Currently, you have to be 18 or older to get a 360 account.

    So far, this is the only option if you want to use some other picture or photo.

    The only three options for pics you have on your Answers profile is no pic, Yahoo avatar, or 360 picture.

    2) You'll need to upload one or more pictures to your 360 page.

    On your 360 page, select "My Page" from the top

    Select "Edit Personal Photos" on the left hand side

    Browse to your saved photo(s) (assuming you have one or more ready) to upload it.

    This link will take you there

    Select the "Set as Primary" button next to the photo want displayed on other sites (like Answers) and select "Save"

    3) You'll need to display your 360 picture on Answers

    Go to your "My Q&A" page, select "Edit My Info"

    In the "Picture" section, select "Use my Yahoo! 360 Picture"

    This link will get you to that page,

    It has been reported by other users that it can take a couple of days before the option to use your 360 pic appears on your Answers profile.

    Click on your avatar (the grey shadow), then click on "Edit My Info". On that page, you can pick:

    No Picture

    Yahoo! 360 picture : Get my Yahoo! 360 account now!

    Use my Yahoo! Avatar : Edit my Yahoo! avatar

    Either click "Edit my Yahoo! avatar" and create one, save it, than go back to the Edit page and choose that option. (or go to: )

    - or -

    Click "Get my Yahoo! 360 account now!" (or go to: ) (must be over 18), post some pictures (on the left side – “Edit Personal Photos), choose one as your PRIMARY, then return to the Edit page and choose THAT for your avatar.

    Good luck!

    As a narrative, i presumed that replaced into very candy yet i think of you may look for all of the training in one in each of those narrative. regardless of how loving a creature grotesque replaced into, the international continues to be uglier. you have all of the affection interior the international to furnish yet there'll continuously be those (Huskies) which will rip you aside for even drawing near. it somewhat is sweet to choose directly to have those decent characteristics yet once you may attempt to be like "grotesque", be greater careful who you furnish your like to than he replaced into. it somewhat is o.k. written regardless of whether it somewhat is actuality or fiction. I enjoyed it lots. A+ playstation Judy R8, you have led one sheltered existence to think of that folk are not that merciless. attempt moving into to a conflict zone and notice how effective all people is to a minimum of one yet another. you're arguments are way too unrealistic. in fact that unusual issues do happen in existence and canines do on occasion kill different animals with out any government intervening. there is no longer something interior the story that's no longer achievable or perhaps probable. it somewhat is in basic terms daily existence.
