Questions about THIS message board

Post by Alan_G » Sun May 30, 2010 3:47 am

Since I don't see a forum for questions about this web site, I've started this topic in order to ask a question.

How can I upload my own avatar to the site? I've gone to "User Control Panel" | "Profile" | "Edit Avatar" and learned that the maximum pixel size for an avatar is 102 x 102, but I can find no tool for uploading an avatar image.

Hi Alan G. The upload avatars function has been turned off due to undesireable uploads. I can always create new categories of avatars if you have an suggestions. Sorry about the inconvenience.

Hi Alan, yep I noticed the same thing. I found an avatar that was good though.

We will be happy to add some avatar groups, but we're just trying to exercise some control of what people put on the message boards. Hopefully everyone understands.

Here's the image I want to use, but it's been built for me using an avatar builder. It wouldn't be appropriate in a set of avatar images available for use by everyone. (There was no 'make him fat' tool. :lol: ) I've temporarily uploaded it to a private web page so that I could display it here.

Ok, that works! We may need to revisit this avatar issue.
