    How do I upload my own personal picture (Avatar)

    To display your own personal pic (Avatar) the pic must be less than 20kb in file size and no more than 110 pixels wide. If it is wider than 110 pixels it will be resized and may not look as good as you intended it to.

    Read this post on how to resize your image.

    Avatars must be G Rated, we reserve the right to remove any we feel inappropriate for the chat boards.

    Images subject to copyright can not be used. In otherwords, if you do not own the image you can not use it.



    Go into your profile by clicking on the "Member CP" link in the top menu. Then click on the "Edit Profile" link.

    Once you are in your profile click on "Edit Avatar" link.



    NOTE - image can only be .gif, .png, .jpg or .jpeg and must be under 20Kb



    If your old avatar is still displayed after you have made changes it would probably be due to the fact you are using Internet Explorer (IE). IE will Cache the original avatar on your computer. You will need to Refresh your browser to force it to load the new pic/info from the server. Sometimes you need to hold the Shift key down while you click on Refresh to force it to load the new pic.

    The delay would probably be due to the fact you are using Internet Explorer. It will Cache the original pic on your computer.

    The pic I can currently see in your avatar is of a drunken Kangaroo, is thsi the current one ?

    I assume you are using Internet Explorer

    If so then the delay would be due to the fact it will Cache the original pic on your computer. You will need to Refresh your browser to force it to load the new pic/info from the server. Sometimes you need to hold the Shift key down while you click on Refresh to force it to load the new pic.
