How do I choose my icon?
Choose an image from any free imaging website that you think represents...well, you! Your absolute fave celeb, your adorable pup or just a simple icon to represent your love for soccer, shoes or science is awesome.
Can I upload a picture of myself to be my icon?
No. For safety reasons, we can’t allow personal pics to be used as icons. Instead, get creative and find a pic that is SO totally you anyway!
I’ve found my icon. Now what?
Save the image to your desktop or a folder that you can easily access. Next, click on “ Browse” under Edit Profile. Locate your image where you previously saved it and then click on your image to open it up! Be sure that the image is a square 100 x 100 pixels wide, or it might get smushed.
I uploaded my icon, but I got a GL logo instead. What gives?
