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.
