Well the question is rather self-explanatory.

I've looked round but I cannot for the life of me work out how your meant to upload/link your avatar on this board.

Any help would be appreciated. :)

Hi Glock

IIRC, I think you need a certain post count (50?) before you can load an avatar.

Fender - click "UserCP" then "Edit Avatar" and fill in the boxes.

There are a few technical limits, like image size. What error message are you getting?

If you look at my profile you will see my new avatar (a spoof religious right wing party poster if you must know). I uploaded mine just the other day. I didn't have any problems at all.

IIRC you need to have posted around 50 to actually get a custom avatar.

Can't uncheck the "don't use an avatar" button.

That happened to Science Guy as well! Contact Wingnut and he can upload your chosen avatar for you!

Can't uncheck the "don't use an avatar" button.

Just click on the "Use Custom Avatar" button below it and that will deselect the "Don't use an avatar" button.

The detail, for anyone interested, is that it's not a check box, it's a radio box. If don't know what that is: a check box can be on or off; whereas a radio box is part of a group, where you can only select one item at a time - like the station buttons on a radio.

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.


In other words, no option exists.

Below (if the attachment works) is what it looks like for me. The "use custom avatar" option is in a separate box below the "do not use an avatar" one. If that's not what you're seeing, then this is a job for the mods.

Hope that helps.

Thanks vil. I'll check that when we get back from the man cadets.

Checked - no, that's not my screen. I think I am too recent a member to be allowed my own avatar, <sobs>, and will ask a mod.
