HELP ME! Everyone seems to have a picture except me! I reduced my picture to below 8kb , but it still won´t upload. And what´s up with the pixel thing, I don´t understand. Someone please tell me how you upload an avatar.

If you go to "your account" and pushes "help", the absolute first helpfile there is called "how do i upload a custom avatar"... it's all explained there. ;)

If you don't have the software to alter your avatar to a 70x70 pixel gif file then you can e-mail it to me at rednell@planet-tolkien.com and I will make the adjustments for you.

But first come into the chatroom and introduce yourself. ;)

I have already made a handfull of avatars and also helped fix avatars, so I can help out too. :elfwink:

What does avatar mean anyway?
An avatar is a spirit's incarnation, an embodiment, a bodily manefestation. In other words, something that represents you; your visible personna on Planet-Tolkien. :teacher:

One of the problems you may encounter too, is if your software converts your image into a GIF (upper case) rather than a gif (lower case file). Mine did the former and wouldn't upload. By erasing the GIF and typing in gif, however, I found it worked fine.

That is fixed now.

This pops up whenever I try to upload a new avatar:

Warning: main(includes/upload_photo.php) [function.main]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /nfs1/tazonlin/webs/www.planet-tolkien.com/modules/edit_profile/index.php on line 5

Warning: main() [function.include]: Failed opening 'includes/upload_photo.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /nfs1/tazonlin/webs/www.planet-tolkien.com/modules/edit_profile/index.php on line 5

I thought that since you, Taz, told me to notify you whenever an error message pops up I should send this to you.
