To get an avatar, go to the words UserCP in the upper right corner of the home page and click. The choose "Edit Options". Scroll to the bottom and you will see a button to get an avatar. There is a selection, based on the number of posts that you have made, that is, you get a wider selection to choose from as you post more.
The black dot is an indicator of threads in which you have posted in or started.
