Forum won't let me have a profile picture
« on: January 03, 2008, 03:14:04 pm »
The forum doesn't seem to want to let me have a profile picture, I tried pics of all resolutions, sizes, and varying levels of compression from my HDD and also through linking to photo hosting sites. All with no success.

Mods, is there something you can do to help me get this working?

Thanks,

Joe

Avatars must be no more than 100 x 100 pixels.

Yeah, what Ovi said, the forum won't resize pictures anymore.

Ah, perhaps you should put a note up there near the box saying that before people try to upload larger images.

It doesn't even give you an error message if you upload it from your HDD, the upload just doesn't appear to do anything.

Anyway, thanks for the solution.

How come Woulfe's avatar is 108 x 144 pixels then? Because he didn't upload it to GamingSteve, but instead linked to it?

Well... hmm... I have no idea. It shouldn't be more than 100 x 100 pixels.

Next time let me know about this sort of stuff. I was just dumb luck that I found this thread.

There was an error on the server, it should work now.

Perhaps a sticky thread for bugs?

On a similar note, I can no longer see my Jeopardy Avatar...
At first A glaring red X was shown in it's place, but now, after only a few moments, the red X vanishes as if I have no avatar.

Initially I deducted that it was stolen by a band of time traveling pirates.
Of course, I'm not exactly a computer expert...

Any Idea on what might actually be causing that?
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Hm. Perhaps it's just the computer I'm using.
Thanks Ovi.

Sometimes avatars disappear, it happens to me every now and again but it'll show up after a bit.

Beat me to it way back in the beggining of the thread :). But yeah for some reason before I was logged in after the server move my avatar was x'd and I eventually got another one but I don't know how to resize or make my own avatar. I know it's stupid to ask now how to make an avatar the riht size (because it's probably in the help section) but I would like to know, any thoughts?  ???

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.

I get that a lot when I'm in school. I think my school has the same computer system... I'm not sure, but I gotta ask sporelover66 if it's true. ???
