    Hello, new to this forum and I hate to start off with a seemingly redundant question, but... how the sam hell do I upload an avatar photo. When I try to upload a pic from my computer it says the dimensions arent right even though there 120x120. Tried using search first and got nothing. So any help would be appreciated.

    By the way nice forum, been looking for a place like this.

    The picture may be too large especially if you are trying to use a movable GIF. The limit is 29.3 KB.

    You could also host off site using http://imageshack.us/ for free!

    Good luck and welcome aboard.

    make sure its a .jpg and not a .bmp or something else. I was having problems today too, untill I changed it to a .jpg

    Thanks. To be honest, I kinda did it because of you and all the other guys who have similar pics. Not because I didn't like it but the last thing I need is someone to see that at work [​IMG]

    I know what you mean and I only did it because I saw some other people doing it so I assumed it was OK. If it is OK I like looking at them. Sure beats the Ed Hardy logos in my book. [​IMG]

    Avatar test / It should look like this... [​IMG] ...but if a friendly Admin would care to insert this gif, I'd be grateful for a time span not less than 20 minutes nor greater than one year! [​IMG]
