@ First Anonymous: Click the Floppy Disk or Chip beside the cursor name. Or click the download button over the set decription for the whole set.
@ Second and Third Anonymous: Click Control Panel > Search "mouse" > Click Mouse > Section Pointers > Browse > Find your cursor in the folder you have downloaded in > Open > Do it for all rolls.

How do you change your profile image? and how do you become a "registered user" and how do you get the icons and mouse pointers that I uploaded t the site, to be visible on ur profile? :-(

Nvm, about the registerd user, I am one lol :-D

user icon Vlasta site administrator yesterday

If you upload cursors or icons while logged in (in the editor, but with the same email), they will appear on your profile. I can see, you already have 2. If you upload more, you can create a set, now they are in the unsorted area called junkyard.
