Tried to put this under privacy but it wouldn't work:

 

Hi...I'm a newby and was wondering how I change my screen name.  I just noticed its my "whole" name and for privacy i'd rather change to something else.

Yes they are.  You will need to reduce them before trying to upload them. Try looking in your Accessories on your computer and see if you have a "Paint" program to use to reduce the size of the picture.

I followed these instructions and I still do not see the new avatar. Should it be instant  or does it need to go through a vetting process?

Hi searchingfor67,

 

If you follow the instructions above, the avatar will change instantly.

 

Are you using a avatar from the web or are you uploading an image to use?  If you are using an image from your computer, here are the instructions for uploading images -> Images

 

Here are screenshots for adding an avatar:

 

Click on "My Settings"

Click on the "Avatars" tab

You will need to have already uploaded the image or you can use a URL from the web

Hope this helps.  Please let me know if you are still having problems.
