Well, then, let's take this stepwise, so there's the smallest possible chance of misunderstanding. :-)

First, there's the "profile picture", which only shows on your profile page. Then there's the "avatar", which shows next to each of your posts.

To change either one, you use the 'User CP', which is the first option on the lowest menu on the page. You can choose 'Edit Profile Picture' or 'Edit Avatar' from the long list on the left.

Now, there are a variety of green indicators that you might mean. On your profile page, there are two that I can see: a green circle next to your name, that shows that you're online. There's a smaller green square to the right, which says something like 'you're an unknown quantity at the moment' when you hover over it with the mouse. All that means is that you're in a category that the site uses to manage New Users, nothing more. Now, green squares on other screens might have different meanings; if you tell me which ones you're concerned about, I'll look into what each one means.

And, basically, if you have any concerns at all, you can PM (private-message) me or one of the other moderators, and we'll try to find the answer for you, even if we don't already know it (and with this software, that often happens.) :-)

Hi! I think malign explained that very well. Being a bit paranoid myself, I understand you wanting to know what's what. I hope you come to feel quite relaxed here and know that we are here to listen and help if we can, and also to seek your support occasionally too.

And remember, paranoia is quite simply a heightened sense of awareness.

It just means not much goes by us. :)
