I was thinking about this as I was uploading pictures to an instructable the other day. Is there a limit to the amount of pictures we can upload to our accounts to post in our instructables?

I've been able to upload pics, but I can't figure out how to make an image be the "me" image instead of the shadow-figure. Any help?

The video wont play. Can you tell us how to do it please? Us faceless avatars need your help
look at us all, all faceless and without avatar.... we, the faceless millions need this instructable - you're our only hope, Obi-wan... And perhaps another on how to play videos too ;-)
