    First the size was set too small and then no one had write access to the avatars directory. I had to change the permissions on the back end. Even I couldn't upload an avatar. Let me know if you have any problems.

    Do I need to send my pic to you to put it in my avatar?

    Nope, each member can upload their own. What you do is go into your profile and there is a browse button. Browse to where you have your avatar picture saved and upload it. If you had one at HTT, just download it by right clicking and saving the picture and then come here and upload it.

    CJ,

    It appears that HTML is disabled by default in our profiles for our sigs. Do you plan on enabling this feature? My old sig won't work without it.

    Thanks!

    Hmmm...so many people are refreshing their Avatars with the new site. Maybe mine is up for a refresh?

    Naaah!

    CJ, what is the rationale for only allowing pics of us as avatars?

    Seems like using other pics is harmless enough, no?

    It makes the place more personal which is a goal of mine (as it was at HTT). No one is required to use an avatar naturally, but if you do, I appreciate it if you respect the rules.

    Thanks,
    CJ
