Why is my profile picture a power-symbol? How do I upload my own photo for my profile pic?
This solution has been deemed correct by the post author
This site uses gravatars for your avatar/profile image. All you have to do is go to http://www.gravatar.com and sign up for a free account and assign a photo to your account. Since you sign up for your account with your e-mail address, your profile pic will show up here automatically. The default profile is therefor the logo for the Gravatar site – sideways letter G. As soon as you set up a free account with gravatar.com, the G icon will be replaced with your own.

Hmm… I signed up and uploaded a photo – but I’m still seeing the G here. WTH?
Make sure you are using the same e-mail you used to sign up here. If you already are – just give it about 5 minutes. It’s a free service, so sometimes there’s a small delay… but haven’t known it to take longer than 5 minutes or so.
Yay! I see it now. Thanks!
