    Avatar FAQ (Updated Feb 11, 2010)

    Q: What is an Avatar and how do I get one?
    A: Avatars are the small square graphical images that you see under a poster's username.
    Note: You must have a minimum of 25 posts in order to use these Avatars.


    Here's how to do it:
    • You must first login
    • Go to Settings
    • Edit Avatar
      > select your avatar
      > Click "Save Changes"
    Q: Is my Avatar unique to my username, or will others be able to use the same one?
    A: No. Others will be able to use the same, but there are many to choose from!

    Q: I want to use my own personal/custom avatar. Can I do this?
    A: Absolutely! Once you have 100+ posts, a feature will appear in the "Edit Avatar" settings for you to upload an image.

    Q: What are the file and size restrictions?
    A: Avatars should be 60x60 and no larger than 10KB (.gif or .jpg formats only). No religious, political, pornographic, or questionable images allowed. If you are in doubt, than most likely the image is not suitable for this forum. Those who abuse this privilege will be banned without notice.

    Q: Are animations allowed in the Custom Avatars?
    A: No.

    Can you post the image here that you are trying to upload?

    You can upload it to a free hosting service, like photobucket.com and then post it in here

    however, I'm seeing an avatar under your name, so I assume you want a different one than the one you have now?

    that's odd that you can't see it, are you able to see other's avatars? (I have Tanith and Ben for mine) if not you might have to turn that option on in your control panel options.

    Eevun, I assume since your avatar has changed you found it?

    Yes, it apparently took awhile for the feature to appear. Thanks.

    I want to use an avatar and choose one but I can't see any of them. How Do I get to choose any?
    Also when I log in I can't see other people's avatar's!
    What is happening and how I can change it?
