Avatars Hay guys, I'm a n00b, how to I get an avatar? To be entitled to use an avatar you must have >500 posts. To see how many posts you have, find a thread you have made a post in and click on your username, then select "View Public Profile" from the drop down. Your post count can be seen here: Hay hommies, I've been around a while now and have >500 posts , how do I set my avatar? Go in to your "UserCP" by clicking on the link in the navigation menu. Select "Edit Avatar" from the menu on the left. Now you can either enter the URL to an image you want to use, or click "Choose file" to locate the image you want stored on your computer for upload. Teh 'tar rulz n00b! Avatars must be 75x75 pixels or less, and can be up to 19.5KB 29.3KB in size. See announcement of increased size. Either enter the URL or choose the file, then just hit "Save Changes" to upload your new avatar to your profile. I just reached 500 posts (OMG, Yay!), but I still can't set my avatar, what gives home boys? If you have just reached 500 posts and are having trouble uploading a 'tar, try logging out an logging back in again. If that doesn't work try to give it a few hours. If after that you still have problems PM one of the mods or ask for help in the feedback forum. Profile Pictures I want an avatar dammit, but it's gonna be ages until I have 500 posts! Well, so far as avatars go that's just too bad ....but, all is not lost! You can have a "Profile Picture" no matter how many posts you have. This image will be seen when people look at your profile. To add your profile picture go to the "UserCP", and select "Edit Profile Picture" from the left hand menu. Procedure to add this is exactly the same as for an avatar. You can either enter a URL to get the image from, or browse you computer for the image to upload. Profile Pictures can be up to 150x150 pixels, and up to 97.7KB. All done! w00t!!! Side note: The picture in my profile picture is not me, so don't ask n00b!
