Are you talking about adding an avatar (a picture) to that area? Go to your profile and click on Forum Profile Information. You can add one there.

if you mean how do you change the color of that area or add an image, that would entail editing the css code for the stylesheet itself - and its also going to change other areas of your forum.

To get to the code, go to Admin CP > MAnage Styles > Modify Styles > select your stylesheet. Scroll all the way to the bottom and look for this section of code:
Code: [Select]
.windowbg2
{
color: #000000;
background-color: #F6F6F6;
}

if you want to add an image there add this line of code:

Code: [Select]
background-image: url(URL TO IMAGE);

keep in mind when you change that area, its also going to change other areas of your forum. Anything tied to the "Windowbg2" area will be affected. Here is a color coded forum so you can see what other areas will have that same image or color when you add it:

Unfortunately you cant. That forum is not an SMFForFree forum, its a SImple Machines forum. Even though they look alike (which is because its the same software), the difference  basically is: The owner of that forum is hosting it on his own servers and has the abililty to make changes such as that. SMF For Free is the one that hosts our forums here and is the only one that can modify that area.

you can change those with any image you like by going to Admin CP > Manage Syles > Customize Images ---- just simply find/make an image, upload it to somewhere like PhotoBucket replace the url thats on the customize images page, with the url to your new image. As for the size you can make them any size you want them to be. If I am not mistaken, the original images are something like 32x32.
