    I by accident deleted my Avatar and the saying below it. I have done this before but can't remember how to do it again save my old. Could someone walk me through it step by step and remember your dealing with a super senior here. The ones I've read are beyond my ability.

    Thank you for any help anyone can give.

    Scroll to top of the screen and click on the icon that used to be your avatar (now just a grey box with a ?). That should bring up a menu. Click "Avatar" and you should be prompted with an option to upload a new picture.

    As for your signature line, do as above but instead of clicking on Avatar, click on Signature instead.

    You'll have to go through some of the same steps that you went into to delete your old one. I'll check with BHW to see if she can figure out a way to restore, but not sure it's possible.

    As AModelCat suggested, click, tap, or point at your name/av at the top. That will bring up a popup that will have a menu with several choices. Choose 'Avatar' in the left column. That will take you to the avatar editor.

    I think you'll have to check a box to 'Use a custom avatar.' That will give you an option to browse your device to find your avatar to upload. If the old avatar isn't still on your device, you'll need to try to find the old image before you start.

    Thank you Dog. I still don't get a menu when I click on the question mark. It brings up something else, I don't know what it's called.

    An overlay/popup should come up giving you an option to select 'Avatar.' You don't see anything like that?

    Go to your profile page then click on your avatar you will have the option from there. It doesn't work for me by clicking it here but does on profile page

    You mean where it says “road train member”?

    We can fix that too. :)

    What would you like it to say?
