Getting a Yahoo Picture/Avatar?

Getting a Yahoo Picture/Avatar?
It won't let me go to the page where the avatars are. Is it on a different site? Can someone link me? It isn't even an option on my Edit Profile.

And I tried to just regularly add a photo of myself, but I don't think anyone can see it. It won't show up for me. I really want to have an avatar, though.

Yahoo no longer supports the creation of their (own) cartoon avatars.

But you can use a photo avatar or a cartoon avatar from another site, and if you have a Facebook or Twitter account, you can also use those avatars.

Go to: - make sure your profile isn't hidden, because if it is, your avatar won't show.

In case you want to use a Facebook or Twitter avatar, you need to link those accounts in the Profile options.

You have several options in case you want a photo avatar:
a) go to your Yahoo! Answers settings at > click edit my preferences near your current pic > click "Update photo or avatar",
b) go to your Yahoo! Profile at , click on the current avatar.
Now upload a picture or choose one of the pics you've uploaded previously - the format can be bmp, jpg, png, or .gif.

Note: if you are on a mobile, you need to switch to desktop mode first in order for this to work.
