Can you have a avatar/profile picture on this forum? If so, how do you do it? ;D

You can have one in your profile description, what people see when you click on their name.

Nils said no to avatar pics a long time ago because they might slow the loading of pages.  Although that was a long time ago... We should ask again.  I don't think page loading speed is as much of an issue now.  Dialup isn't used as much now.

As Bob mentions, it avatars been asked for several times.  However, there is something to merit about Pianostreets "clean" look.  On forums that allow avatars and even images in your signature, you are often bombarded with imagery throughout a post. 
Made a Liszt. Need new Handel's for Soler panel & Alkan foil. Will Faure Stein on the way to pick up Mendels' sohn. Josquin get Wolfgangs Schu with Clara. Gone Chopin, I'll be Bach

I also like the clean look here. On sites with pictures beside the person's username, you see the pics over and over (each time they post), and it gets annoying, imo. Especially the animated ones. Not to mention some of the pics are distasteful.
