:shakehead: :juggling: I am also having trouble uploading an avatar. I created one with the exact stipulations required by the site. However, I keep getting a message that the avatar failed to upload. I wondered if it could be some trouble with my fire wall perhaps? Help me out here fellow Tolkien loverrs!

I get the same thing. This error message appears at the top of the page:

Warning: copy(images/avatars/2053.gif) [function.copy]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /nfs1/tazonlin/webs/www.planet-tolkien.com/modules/edit_profile/includes/upload_photo.php on line 34
A mind full of fire and a fistful of steel.

I tried to upload an avatar and the picture is not a gif file, what does this mean?
I tried to load a picture I had saved onto a floppy from another site.

Images can be stored in several different formats (gif files, Jpegs, bitmaps etc). It sounds like the image you saved was one of the other formats. Certain software packages (eg. photographic or paint software) allow you to save images in these different formats, and interchange between them. It's simply a case of using the "save as" option and changing the format you wish to save in. I believe Amarie has offered to help anyone struggling to create their 70X70 gif files.

I am also available to resize pictures to a 70 x70 gif. Just e-mail it to rednell@planet-tolkien.com
