Honestly didn't even know about the Achievement settings on the back panel. But I checked it out - and there were no search keywords. Try putting in some keywords thinking maybe it wasn't bringing anything up because of all the images.. and that didn't help either.
So then I went and decided to look @ the blogs.dir folder which is honestly used very rarely.. but under ID #1 I saw the files folder and inside that folder there was an avatars folder and maybe a podpress folder
anyways, I added the specific Image i wanted to use to the files folder, to the id#1 folder and I created a folder called upload inside the files folder and placed the image in there.. I did this because i'm not sure where at I was supposed to upload the image in the Root blog folder..
Well none of this seemed to work and I still get the same thing in the beginning:
First you must upload an image to your wordpress media center
thanks for the help so far :) I'm completely lost though.
