How to change your avatar

Postby Rainbow on Thu Dec 11, 2008 1:10 am

What's an avatar? It's the picture over there --> below the forum name. Here's how to make one your own.

After you've logged in, click the "Your profile" tab (in a new browser tab if you can so that you can still read this) and then click the "Profile" tab below that.
On the left, click the "Edit avatar" link.
Clicking the "Display gallery" button is a good start, then you can choose 'Artwork', 'Companies' or 'Covers' from the drop-down list. Tick the radio button under the picture that you like and then click the "Submit" button.
Done.

You can also choose your avatar from a web server by specifying the complete URL in the "Link off-site:" box, but be certain that this is a public domain image before you do so. Copyright infringements are so not nice.

You can upload to a file sharing server and link to that but be aware that most of those will only allow a limited bandwidth, and every time your avatar is viewed will add up. Posting a copyrighted image to a file sharing site and claiming ignorance won't let you get away with it.

If you're not sure about the image size in pixels, leave the "Avatar dimensions:" empty and this clever forum software will work it out.

Go for it!

Hi External Exile
We have a rule here that newly registered members aren't allowed to do certain things until their 5th post has been approved by a moderator or administrator.
After that, you can change your profile!

It stops spammers from flooding us, which nobody likes.

So welcome, and carry on posting!

You noticed! I was trying to pick some Mark Wilkinson artwork that no one is using, but since everyone seems to be shoving their faces on lately, I figured what the hell! :)
There's Klingons on the starboard bow Jim! :shock:

I hadn't noticed! :D

In fact it was only earlier that I was thinking of swapping mine back to what it was before 8-)

Thanks very much! I only opted for the face because everyone seemed to be showing their mugs.

lol, was just kidding :D In fact, it's good cos I like to have pics for my contacts and I couldn't find one for you so now I just nicked it to transfer to my phone - before that, I had you on as a potato wedge (although it was close call between a wedge and a chip ;-) )
