I want to add my own avatar to the game but I'm not sure how to go about it. Also what dimensions must the picture be to fit properly?

-Dimensions, anything square. The site will resize it through html. 100x100 is the most commonly used size.

-Upload your image to a hosting site. (tinypic.com, imageshack.us, photobucket.com, and so on)
Save the direct link to that image.
Browse to your character profile. (character in the right hand menu, followed by edit [name] profile)
Replace the default character url with the one of your uploaded image.

Ok thanks.

I've added Teya's reply as a suggestion for a new entry in the FAQ. Hopefully it gets uploaded.

Ah good idea. May I suggest that you include how to add a border to the avatar, as you can see I have a new avatar but am unsure of how to add a border to the picture. I know you can simply add it to the picture when editing it yourself but what If I wanted the typical SWC border?

There's a blank combine frame file in a sticky over at the art sub-forum. (message centre - art team public)
