How to change my Avatar

I have a little green dot as my avatar, I would like to change it but under my profile I do not see any options, am I just missing it, or do I have to met any requirements before I have this option? Thanks in advance!

Welcome to sevenforums ,the green dot is a rep point, as you make progress and earn more they go up, you will see other members with a bigger row and with gold colored ones ,eventually you earn medals when the dots reach a certain number.

if you click the user cp link at the top of the site then click edit avatar at the left you can upload a pic for an avatar there. you can also add a sig by clicking edit signature.
