Default Upload avatar?

I see plenty of other folks have uploaded an avatar, so I must be missing something obvious.

See attached .jpg... this is what my 'Edit Avatar' screen looks like in my User Control Panel. I have only one radio button, a save button, and a reset button.

Any tips?

"Can Upload Custom Avatars" was turned on only for moderators and admins, and off for "normal" users.

I turned it on, try it again.

Yeah, but... what if I get angry and call someone a dirty SOB, and then later decide he is not a dirty SOB and want to edit it out?

Thanks - it looks like I can upload an avatar now.

Would it be legal for me to upload my old "BSDForums" avatar? or is that one explicitly copyright of the old Admin?

Where did your avatar originally come from? That place owns the copyright, not BSDForums (Unless, of course, you originally got it from BSDForums).

It was one of the fourm provided defaults, a devil looking dude, origins unknown.

I have several hundred posts, anyone willing to lend a hand?

The avatars don't come with vBulletin, and I doubt Admin created them all, which means it's probably from an avatar pack, so it's probably a free image.
