While we don't have an upload system, we do allow you to use a service called Gravatar to set up your own avatars. This is a popular system on blogs and lets you automatically have one avatar across a range of sites. Here's how to set it up.

Step 1) Go to Gravatar's website and sign up there using the same email address associated with your DOTAFire account.
Step 2) Follow Gravatar's instructions to set up your custom avatar. If any steps are unclear, refer to the site's Help section.
Step 3) Edit your profile. In the Avatar section, go to the Gravatar tab, mark the "Use my Gravatar avatar" box and click Update. If you have set yourself up properly on Gravatar, the default DOTAFire logo will have changed to your Gravatar settings

That's it!

Any other Gravatar-enabled sites that you use will also show this new avatar. Enjoy :)
