Uploading avatars?

Postby Skyfire on Tue Mar 28, 2006 11:02 pm

Is there any special requirement to upload an avatar image from our computer? We have that option in our profile, yet I haven't been able to make it work.

Thanks.

Thanks.

it has to meet all of these requirements:

Only one image can be displayed at a time, its width can be no greater than 80 pixels, the height no greater than 80 pixels, and the file size no more than 6 KB.

It took my like 10 tries to get mine to finally work.

^ The one I want is 64 * 64.

It's a spoof of the cover artwork for Braveheart, with characters from The Slayers instead of Mel Gibson & co.

But is it less then 6KB? it can be small enough pixel-wise but still too large of size byte-wise. You may have to change the format of the file.

^ 2.32 KB, so it's under half of the limit there.

Looking back at my avatar, I see now that I linked from another website. As I recall, this new site is having problems uploading avatars for some reason. Sorry for the mis-direction.

do the avatars we link to have to fit the same rules as the uploaded ones?
