How do I change my profile avatar/photo on yahoo answers to something different?

I wanted to change my avatar/photo but the only option I see is the upload an image button. Is there a way to change it to just a regular avatar like other people do? I don't want to upload an photo of my self on yahoo. Please let me know thanks.

    Your avatar can be a cartoon or a photo. Cartoons are created at the Avatar web site. Photos are uploaded to the Pulse web site.

    If you have hidden your Pulse Profile you can use a cartoon avatar but for a Pulse Profile picture to appear here it can't be hidden. If you do not want information public then you can hide each element or leave it blank.

    If you have already created an avatar and it is not appearing be sure to follow step Ⓒ completely.

    Ⓐ │ If you want a C̲a̲r̲t̲o̲o̲n̲ avatar then create or modify one at

    Ⓐ │ and then go to Ⓒ.

    Ⓑ │ If you want a P̲h̲o̲t̲o̲ avatar then upload an image to your Pulse Profile at

    Ⓑ │ . Click on the current photo to get the update options.

    Ⓑ │ Select the one you want to use and then go to Ⓒ. NOTE: If you hide your profile

    Ⓑ │ the image will not show up on Yahoo! Answers.

    Ⓒ │ Now go to the Yahoo Answers profile at .

    Ⓒ │ Click "update photo or avatar". Be sure to "save" at the bottom of the page.

    Ⓒ │ This is also where you can change your nickname.

    For a pic or avatar.

    Go to edit my preferences at the right of your avatar click update photo or can get an avatar at the box that opens select add photo or customize avatar. Folow the instructions and job done.

    Make sure your pulse is not set to private as that stops it from appearing,

    you would be able to desire to pass into profiles and edit my archives. Then set up your 360 profile. In 360 you click my internet site and seem left to edit photos. Then lower back to profiles edit archives and set you photograph to 360 and shop at backside.
