We do not recommend using pictures of yours (or anyone else's) face or genitalia as an Avatar or Profile Cover. Additionally, some devices (typically mobile devices) may ask for additional permissions such as viewing your photos and such; this is not us asking, this is your web browser application asking.
An avatar is a little picture that accompanies your username on most pieces of information on EcchiDreams, such as your posts, clubs, images, and so on. It doesn't have to represent you or your identity, it can be whatever you like (within the limits of the Terms of Service). Similarly, a profile cover is the picture along the top of your profile that will also appear in the hovercard (on Desktop/Laptops) when you hover your mouse pointer over someone's username. Your avatar is shown in the circle, whereas the profile cover is above that.
The default avatar is usually a random colour with the first character of your username in it.
This guide is split into two sections, not including this introduction:

- Mobile/Tablet Users
