I know how to add an avatar to my profile, but there's still a slight problem.
The maximum size is 6kb, and in order to get my avatar to be 6kb, I have to make it really tiny. And I've noticed that everyone's got normal sized avatars around here. So my question is:
How do you get an avatar that's only 6kb, but still normal sized, and not microscopically small like mine?

thanks

Host it on your own server and link to it. That's what I did.

Yes, I don't think those limits apply if you host the avatar on another server.

what exactly do you mean by that?
you mean put it on a website like imageshack or photobucket?
I'm just double checking this to be sure, because I'm not always completely oyvey with computer parlance Razz

Edit:

It seems we can adjust the allowed avatar size (now up to 100 x 100) but the file size is not adjusting as expected. We'll look into it.

In fact, this system is not easy. It would be better if we could download a small image from our computer (as we do on the French forum).
I have tried to resize my image on ImageShack : it has lasted a long time and finally, it hasn't worked !!

The daft thing is that avatar uploading is turned on (I've just checked) - it's just not showing in profiles.

We'll look into it.

Did you add the right link from imageshack to your profile then?
When you get to see all the different link, after you've uploaded your avatar, you have to click on 'Show Advanced Linking'. This is at the bottom of the page.
Then an extra link appears, 'Direct link to image'
And that's the one you need to add to your profile on the forum. It won't work with any of the other links.

Hopefully this was helpful to you.
Good luck! Very Happy

Thanks for your help. I have resized and clicked on 'save picture' and 'upload to ImageShack'. Here is the beginning of the big wait !! there is a message on the screen 'saving 5 KB... (Thanks for waiting) and that can last for hours...

The alternative is to host your avatar on your own webspace, as I do. Much easier, IMHO.

Do you have a slow internet connection? Because with me Imageshack is always really fast.

It is always fast to upload an image; it seems quite different for a resized picture... Shocked

That's right--off-site linking only. No uploads. Most people have a photobucket or similar account, though, for any number of things, and they're not very hard to set up.

Noel,

It looks from your post that you have almost done it. You have set your avatar in your profile as:

Code:
http://attp//img.photobucket.com/albums/v637/coda_coda/steedabc.gif


Remove the "attp//" so you get:

Code:
 http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v637/coda_coda/steedabc.gif


and you should get:
