1. go to user cp/then go to edit options/scroll down all the way to the bottom right/ youll see a buttont hat says "change Avatar" click on it/choose your avatar from the many selections provided/You can upload a custom avatar if you want, but you have to make it yourself and resize it.

2. I dont understand what you mean.

I dont think you can change your name at will.
Youll have to email an admin or something.

*About your sig. The correct spelling is "Summerian":)

Yeah, name selection is performed at account creation. I don't think it's editible. If you really wanted to change it, you might try talking to one of the administrators. Most likely though, you'll be told you have to delete your current account and open up a new one...

Open up your picture file that you have, and the click save as...then when the save screen comes up there is a drop down list labeled 'save as type' open that list and choose JPEG. Then save it. That will allow you to use that picture.
