Drag the corners of the box to change the size. Drag the center of the box to re-position it. The smaller image on the right will display what your avatar will look like. When the box is where you want it, click the Crop button.

  • Why Does My Profile Change Postions In The List?
    Donald Swan03-03-2016

    Generally, listings are displayed in order of recently active. This means that when you log in and use the site, your listing moves to the top. The more often you are active (Logged in, posting to groups, updates, articles, events, tweets, etc.) the more visible you are. (Your activity is also sent to Twitter and other social networks as well.)
