Looks to me as if certain profile options are turned off. Primarily the tools needed to browse to pictures on your computer and upload them as your avatar.

Which makes linking to a picture your only option. Are any of your pictures posted somewhere on the web, such as snapfish or photobucket? Or do you have a website where they are up? Click on that image, then copy and paste the URL into the field you see in your profile avatar options and click on 'submit'.

Some boards will automatically size your image to a pre-defined avatar dimension. Others ask that you do this manually yourself. I'm not sure what the rules here about that are ( you see I have no image and nor do I care enough if I do or not to do anything about it X-D ).

Perhaps the quickest way to solve your problem would be to send a PM to the administrator here regarding this issue.

Really? Wow.
