Hey everyone.

I've been registered here for a little while and have tried several times to update my personal photo and avatar with no luck. Is this an issue others are having as well or am I just not doing something right?

Also is there a way to choose a different forum skin?

Thanks for your help!

Hi StrangeMichael,

You should be able to update your personal photo and avatar by going through the "my controls" button at the top. You will see a list on the left hand side in which it allows you to edit these options. What problems are you running into when you try to update these?

As for selecting a different skin, I don't believe that option is available......why are you looking to change it?

Thanks for the reply mrsspookypants, I've gone back and tried again and got it to work. All except for my personal photo. Haven't been able to get one to accept even though I think I have the sizes right and all. But anyway - the problem I was having was that the pic's I was trying to use were at a url from photobucket which is very long. I guess it was too long to fit into your form. So when I figured that out I just used a picture from my main directory instead of a sub folder, that shortened the url and it took it. Don't know if that is something the administration could adjust or not. *shrug* But anyway - thanks for the reply - I guess I just needed to pay more attention to what was happening.

Meh - I kinda like a darker interface - works better for my poor eyesight for some reason. No big deal though just was wondering if there was a choice option somewhere.

Glad you got it to work. I also have trouble with photobucket, so I just keep on using Imageshack....old habits are hard to break ;)

As for the darker appearance, sorry can't help you out with that.

You might want to try adjusting the brightness and contrast on your monitor to make it less harsh on your eyes.
Ah. Well... I attended Juilliard... I'm a graduate of the Harvard business school. I travel quite extensively. I lived through the Black Plague and had a pretty good time during that. I've seen the EXORCIST ABOUT A HUNDRED AND SIXTY-SEVEN TIMES, AND IT KEEPS GETTING FUNNIER EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE IT... NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT YOU'RE TALKING TO A DEAD GUY... NOW WHAT DO YOU THINK? You think I'm qualified? --BeetlejuiceI'm the ghost with the most, babe.--BeetlejuiceWe've come for your daughter Chuck--Beetlejuice

Plegreesheexy,

I've moved your post here to the Technical Support board, as it is off topic for the thread you posted it in, but appropriate for here.

As for Avatars, when you go into your Control Panel and click on Edit Avatar Settings, the first thing you see is this:

Your avatar must be no bigger than 64 pixels by 64 pixels in size. Uploaded avatars from your computer must be no larger than 20 KB.
The following file types are allowed: gif,jpeg,jpg,png
