so basically, choosing a "style" is like choosing a skin for something without changing how things show up?
what if i want to get rid of some of the "boxes" in the layout? Like: Blog, Shopping, Friends, etc .... I know I won't need or use them so they'll just look cluttery if I left them there. How can i get rid of them from the style/skin?
This is about my avatar, how come my avatar are different from on my home page to the comment, I have a roller coaster for my avatar on my home page, but when I post a comment it shows this one, how do I get them both on the roller coaster?
There are two places you can set a picture in My Place. If you're choosing Edit Photo, you're just changing the picture there.
Go to My Place. Click on Edit Profile, and then Avatar Settings from the next screen. Click on the Browse button, and find the file on your computer - it can be up to 512kb, and in JPG, GIF, or PNG format.
(To check the size of your file, go to Windows Explorer. Find your file, right click on the file name, and choose Properties from the pop-up menu. The file size is towards the center of the information that you’ll see, shown under Size.)
Once you've selected your file, click Proceed, and voila - an avatar!
Some systems do have an issue with Preview and avatars. If you're having difficulty, try skipping the Preview, and just choosing Proceed.
