top left corner, you should see a box, with a blue outline of an avatar. in that box, where your message count is, click 'unread'.

on this page, scroll down, and click on the left hand side, 'edit avatar' and you can choose a stock picture or upload your own. when you have a picture selected, click 'save changes' at the bottom.

make sure you click edit avatar though and NOT edit picture as this is your profile picture that can only be seen on your profile and not your posts.

Just to add to what Scotty had posted, you will need 5 non-spam posts in order to change it.

You need to have 5 posts in the forum beforew you can add a profile picture. They CAN NOT be spam, so just try and find a couple of forums of games you like and start posting!

Welcome to the the site I know your new to the website, but a post is suppose to add something meaningful to the topic. Any thing else is spam.
Just so you know, the 5 posts you need, need to be non spam. (Sorry playing around with the settings ) I don't mean to be mean, I'm just trying to help you under stand the rules.

Here are the rules to the site http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=180508
I would suggest reading them before posting more.

Ok, I get to be the Newbe that posts a Q? on April 1st, 13.
File type info? .jpg, .pic, .png???
Also perhaps one of the veteran posters could put together a guide to help all the pleebs logging on for the first time who would like some help.
just my 2 cents.

do the posts have to be approved by the moderators before it will count as a post?

No, you can post almost anywhere for it to count as a post as long as it is not spam. The areas that do not count toward post count are Member Profiles and anything under Off Topic.

It doesn't take a while to update; you are probably posting in areas where it does not increase your post count.

There are guides for this and other stuff already. The problem is when newbies have questions, they post new topics rather then looking to see if it has been answered somewhere

Welcome to the site!

You do not have to create a thread for it to count as a post, replies to threads count too. Posts made in Member Profiles or any of the Off Topic sections will not add to post count, however.
