  • How Do I Get an Avatar?

    To get an avatar, first you must have more than 60 posts to your name, then you need to upload your graphics file, which must be 50 X 50 maximum in gif format. Note that the user permissions for this are only updated once per day, so wait at least one day after achieving 60. Note that this post has been updated to reflect reality: ignore any guesses in succeeding posts.

    PS Please also note that low/no-content messages posted for the sole purpose of getting an avatar will be deleted. Please participate in the forum normally, you will get there soon enough.

    The system won't give the option to upload a Avatar. Can you help!

    Thanks, Stanford.

      Hi Stanford,

      What do you see when you go to 'Avatar' under your userCP panel?

        Avatars are small graphics that are displayed under your username whenever you post.

        Do not use an avatar
        (Note - if you have a custom avatar selecting this option will delete it.) No Avatar Specified


        This is what is presented there is no option to change or add a avatar. If you press submit modification or reset fields nothing happens.

          I had a look in the control panel, but it should be OK. There is no option below that for custom avatars? There should be a check box to enable it.

          If its still no go, mail me your avatar and I'll do it from here.

            'raises hand'

            I'm having the same problem as highelf.
            What address should I send the avatar to...also is it 50 x 50 (pixels?) and does it have to be a gif?

            Thanks

                Getting an Avatar

                Just send Sminki $100 and he will give you the secret password to get an avatar. In addition, he will explain why the password is the same in Japanese and Korean and provide an authoritative history of password selection.

                      Avatars

                      I have made some changes to the system that should allow avatars to be uploaded. Please try again and let me know how you get on.

                      regards
