    It took me a while to get an Avatar installed. I thought I would give the link where I found compatable avatars.
    Ginincoo's Angel Avatars.
    http://members.aol.com/jmaincal/avatars/avatars.htm

    Sometimes I have trouble with the URL's so I will repeat.
    http://members.aol.com/jmaincal/avatars/avatars. htm

    When I searched for avatars, a lot of sites came up that did not have avatar pictures. I copied the Avatar into My Documents, on my computer, and then selected Browse on the Avatar installation guide in Sexual Forums. I got some error messages along the way, but I just repeated, and kept going. More Avatars might make a more colorful Forum.

    Another thread gave 60 posts minimum and 21 days as the requirements for getting an Avatar.

    Probably not too many people remember the Marvel Comic Book hero Dr. Strange, but I think I have some of his comic books still stashed away.

    I still cant figure out how to put one in, Im not new to forums and avatars but the option to browse seems to be missing from my user cp! I go into user cp and then into the avatar section, but there is only one radio button (dont use an avatar) and there seems to be little I can do to change this. Im wondering if its because when I signed up I did a quick sign-up (there were two options)? Little help....

    Browse Button

    My Browse button appeared to the right of the last blank box, at the bottom of the Avatars screen.

    I clicked the Browse button, and a window appeared to let me open a file from my computer. When I opened the file, it automatically filled in the bottom blank space.

    I am new to Avatars, so I am depending upon beginner's luck.

    One of my early tries was to create my own Avatar by going to Programs, Accessories, Paint. When I pressed the SAVE CHANGES button, I got an error message, that my file exceeded 65 Pixels by 65 Pixels.

    I am not sure what size the pixels are for the Grinicoo's or the Avatarpage.de. There may be a source for larger Avatars, that will fit under the 75 by 75 Pixel requirement.

    Smaller symbols that fit:

    Re: Avatar Help

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    What I do is I take a picture of my Q45, download the picture, open it into corel photopaint, and then do a thing called resample...... it maintains the height/width ratio, so all you have to do is specify the width/height in pixels....... if you would like, I can resize some pictures for you..... email me!!

    Does it need to be 60 posts AND or EITHER 21 days, because I have been here nigh on 3 months now, so am assuming it needs to be both? I guess I better get posting if it is :D

    It is both 60 posts and 21 days. ;)

    The automatic promotions manger that will automatically allow avatars and custom titles are only for certain user groups. I've fixed that problem. :)

    The ones at Avatarpage.de when full size are 100x100 pixels. The ones that are displayed in a group are 50x50 pixels each.

    Just as a reminder as more and more users are adding avatars. In the control panel http://sexualforums.com/talk/usercp.php there is a setting under 'options' that will allow you to turn of avatars. FYI in case anyone is not interested in viewing the avatars displayed.
