Avatars are icons which appear next to your name in various places on MicroWiki. If you're viewing MicroWiki in the Oasis theme (the default one, as of 2010) you'll find them next to your name at the top right of this page.

You'll also see them next to your name on your user page, and every time you make a post at our forum.

Because the technically replace signatures on Message Walls and the Forum respectively, they are required from 27 May 2015.

How to change your avatar

To alter you avatar, simply go to your user page and roll your mouse over the avatar picture. If you've not yet chosen an avatar, it will look like a grey, featureless person. When your mouse hits the avatar, a hidden "edit" button will suddenly appear. If you click on the edit button, you will then be presented with a row of pre-set avatars, as well as a button which says "choose".

If you wish to upload pictures from your own computer, hit the "choose" button. Otherwise, select one of the "standard" images you see. If you hit "choose", then navigate to the image you wish to upload and hit "select", "OK" or whatever word your operating system uses to indicate that you wish to complete the action. You will then be shown what that image looks like on your user page. However, you still need to hit a "confirm" or "change" button to make the change take effect.

Now you will have a new avatar, which will be visible regardless of the wiki you're visiting at Wikia.
