    okay, I'll admit it, I'm trying to create a custom avatar and can't get it right.

    I have a digital picture that I want to use. I've tried everything to get it to the proper size. I thought I had it, but when I tried to upload it, the avatar changed not to my picture, but to the first one is the standard list.

    So what am I doing wrong?


    Considering most everyone else seems to have gotten it correct I feel like a real dummy.;g

    I've had trouble too.

    You need to click "yes" under "use custom avatar, AFTER you input your avatars location.

    I would be happy to take a shot at crunching your main picture if that's a problem.

    PP:Thanks that did it. Can't tell you how many times I clicked the button BEFORE I input the location.


    I'm not happy with the way the avatar turned out but at least it's there. Guess I have to work on the picture itself.

    Good job getting the picture up:)

    Do you need the original cropped?

    OK, I know what's wrong.

    To prevent people from signing up new and putting really gross avatars up, you must have at least 10 posts before you can have a custom avatar.


    Since you are not a troll, just go to the "test your stuff here" thread and submit several posts.


    You can see your post count in your "profile", you have 7 now.
