Whatever your avatar is on your PS3 will be the same Avatar for the forums, blog and etc. However I haven't seen a way to update it thru the forums. I remember back in the day we could change it however now I haven't seen that feature.

That wasnt my question.
The last forum we had prior to migrating back to Lithium allowed us to choose our avatars from within the forum itself.

There was an inventory of the actual available profile images in the forum.

Someone asked me how to change their FORUM profile and in trying to help them this is how I noticed its different.

She doesnt want to change the actual PS3 profile, I think shes more/less looking for a specific avatar image.

 

And by the way it IS ON TOPIC because it relates directly to Home and these Forums

Yes...before the migration we could choose from a cataloge of avi profile images. I guess theyve removed that option now since the switchback to Lithium.

On the JIVE forums we were free to customize our profile image, but now everything is synced across PlayStation Network and the Blog. We cannot use different avatars here on the forum anymore.

The Jive forums had their own settings. This is Lithium. If we wish to change the avatar, we have to do it via the PS3. And we will be limited to what the PS3 will allow.

Just to clarify, the feature can be used on Lithium as well. It's just that Sony has it turned off for anyone without Mod level permissions. Occasionally you'll see a Mod sporting one of the Lithium avatars rather than a PSN avatar. It's pretty easy to spot. They'll be rectangle, more wide then tall, whereas the PSN avatars are either a perfect square or circular with transparency.
