You can upload an avatar to represent yourself on all of Wikia's fan communities. It will appear in several locations, and gives users another way to identify themselves to others.

Step by stepEdit

Uploading avatar

After selecting the image to use as your new avatar!

To upload an avatar for your profile:

  1. Save your chosen image to your computer (if not there already).
  2. Go to your user page.
  3. Mouse over your current avatar, then click the "Edit avatar" link that appears.
  4. Press the "Choose file" button and choose your image.
  5. Observe the preview of your avatar and decide if that's how you want it.
  6. Click the "Save, I'm Done" button to save your avatar.


  • Your image must be a jpeg, png, or gif, and it must be less than 500kb in size. It's best that the image is 150x150 pixels or larger.
  • After you upload your new avatar, you can switch back to one of the default ones by clicking on one of them and hitting "Save, I'm Done".
  • The "Edit avatar" link appears only in the Wikia skin, not in the MonoBook skin. MonoBook users will first have to visit their preferences and switch to Wikia.
