    Well I hate how I have to change my picture on every single forum when I get tired of my current one, so I thought of a solution.

    Step 1: Use a site with Few Avatar restrictions and has each user own his or her own picture URL that replaces itself with a new image keeping the same URL when you update. (Serenesforest is one site I confirmed to do this)

    Step 2: Upload your Avatar.

    Step 3: Right Click it

    Step 4: Get the image URL
    It should look like this or something similar: http://[Website].[com/org/net]/forums/uploads/av-####.ext

    Step 5: Use that as your avatar URL for all of your forums.

    Step 6: Now, you only need to change that one website's avatar to change all of yours.

    If you're using something like photobucket that will work as well as you name the uploaded files.

    1. go to http://pix.gbatemp.net
    2. upload your image
    3. upload another image with the same filename when you want to change
