    Changing WoW Profile Picture on OFFICIAL Forums

    I was on the forums today and I noticed someone had customized art as his picture instead of the Standard profile for your in game toon. How is this possible? Very curious.



    PS, sorry for the big letters, was making sure you could see it above the huge image :P

    The guy just shopped the image over the poster's avatar. Either you're pulling our legs here or you're using an extension/addon that changes WoW forum avatars. It's nothing on Blizzard's end.

    As you already know, you can't.

    Why did you even do this? O.o

    Why do you think I shopped it? -.- I mean I use Firefox and I had no idea what addon could possibly do that. You guys can't see it? O.o But as I said, I use Firefox with really no extensions as all. So I don't know why it would do this.

    If you look over my previous posts I'm not one to troll at all.. I'm just as confused.

    Oh and the thing is, I know that is that person's personal art because that's the concept of his character on the Moon Guard Wiki.

    His actual posts have a standard avatar for me. :/ It has to be something on your end, since there's no way to change it on the forum itself.

    This thread will probably help, a blue answered someone in it: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/to...4088456?page=1

    Looks like it's something called Cogshanks, which is a Firebox browser addon.

    Woah o.o I had no idea Cogshanks did that. I didn't even think about that. Thanks, that's pretty awesome that it does that.
