How can I get my avatar to work?
« on: August 26, 2008, 07:49:23 pm »
    I have gone to my profile, checked "upload my own picture," done the browse thing and had the pic address come up in the box, then pressed "change profile" a number of times. Every time, the page just goes blank and says "done" at the bottom, but the avatar never appears on my posts.
     What am I doing wrong?
     Thanks.

Henk, I read Gbob's reply. I've tried a couple of pix, and none of them work, though they work on other forums.
The error page I get today is different than the blank page I got the first 4-5 times I tried. Now it says my picture is too large or not an avatar, although it's the same one I've used on other forums.

Maybe here are some problems with uploading pics , today I could not upload a picture in my post.
This is the message I got (in dutch) :De uploadmap zit vol. Probeer een kleiner bestand te uploaden en/of stel de beheerder op de hoogte.
It means that the map for uploads (pictures) is full , and that I have to contact the administrator?
So Pottel and others , can you resolve this problem?
Henk

I asked my systemmanager at the office and he advised to downsize the pictures, which I didn't try yet

The size may be an issue. I had to scale down one I used over at MK News forum before it would allow it to show in postings. Also the file format may be an issue worth looking into. Have you tried to use other photos with different formats (jpeg,bmp,Gif etc.) and different sizes? I'm a bit technically challenged myself but I'd try the size/format thing and different photos to start with. You might get a combination that works then you can save your photo to the size/format that works. If that didn't help then I'd maybe email the photo to someone else on here and see if they could get it to work in their profile. Just a starting point hope you get this solved.

You got some great photos at Red Rocks!! :)

What picture are you trying to use? If the picture is larger than the maximum size (150 x 225 pixels), the forum will refuse it.

It says it's 1.62 mb. Is that too big? It works on the other two forums and on Guy's forum. It's JPEG,
Thanks for compliment on my Red Rocks photos.

Yes Knopfling and Ingrid it appears as though the size was the problem. Most avatars on here are around 15-45kb, yours were a lot bigger so I reduced them to fit. As Dan said "If the picture is larger than the maximum size (150 x 225 pixels), the forum will refuse it". The Forum has a set limit to Avatar size, so anyone having problems trying to load avatars may need to reduce the size of the photo, with one of your photo editing programs then reload it to see if that is the problem.

Thanks Ian. In a "user friendly" forum, the user would be able to upload any size picture, and the forum software would scale it down automatically. Unfortunately, that function is not working properly here. So for now, it is set to refuse any picture over a certain size, otherwise everyone would have huge avatars that would waste large amounts of bandwidth.
