How can I change my profile image and name on MakeUseOf?

How can I change my profile image on MakeUseOf? Clicking the image doesn’t go anywhere and I can’t find where to change it on the profile page. I’d also like to be able to change my name.

    On your user profile page (get there by clicking profile near your actual image), you will see this message under the social icons:


    Choose which thumbnail to use for your profile (for a bigger choice, connect more social networks).

    Note: this feature will not affect the image shown in comments

    Click one of those pictures to change to it!

    You can also use Gravatar ( )

    Your name is obtained from the social accounts. Changing the name there, it will get changed automatically here at MUO.

    We now do have a option from choosing our avatars from the added social networks.
    It is on the profile page. It may take some time to show throughout on the site.
