Hi All

Can someone please clarify the avatar situation?!

Do you have to be a supporter to have one, if yes, how do you go asbout becoming a supporter?
If not, is there any reason why - after resizing to specified pixel size & a .gif format I still cant get my picture up? THANKS!
Make sure it is .gif and not .GIF, that is usually the problem. You can send it to me at and I'll see if I can fix it. If all fails, we'll get Grep (the owner) to do it.

You don't have to be a supporter to have an avatar, but you can still support us. Wink Smilie
Thanks - I'll forward it ASAP.

How do we become supporters then?
You can find the info on how to support us here: PT down

I don't know what pi is other than the ratio of the circumference of a circle divided by its diameter. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
how do u change pi. to .gif

Generally I use some photo editing software. Usually they give you the choice when you use the SAVE AS command to save your file as any one of a number of formats (eg. jpeg, bitmap, gif etc).
Yes, just message me and I can help you out Marco Orc Smiling Smilie

I tried to upload my avatar, any restrictions on how many posts you need to have until you get one?

It's 70x70 pixels, 6.29 kb, in .gif format, and it is telling me, "Photo could not be updated."

Any helps?
I'm not sure, but you could try sending it to the Council (see top of this thread). They should be able to fix any problems with your picture.
P.S. Don't forget, Eruheran, that it was me who gave you your last name! Big Smile Smilie

The same thing happened to me, and I sent it to Taz to get it cleared up. It worked......for a while. Recently, it changed back to my ancient avatar, so i deleted it and am now patiently waiting for whatever problem it is to be fixed.
It changed back as part of a server change. They then fixed that problem. I thyink.
It could be a bug from the latest server move. Make sure it is .gif and not .GIF and if it still doesn't work you can e-mail me the picture at Happy Elf Smilie
Any helps?

Try now for me?
It worked, thanks for fixing it.
That drawing is brilliant Revenwyn.
Thanks, but I didn't draw this one, it was a commission.

My drawing is on my character profile. Smile Smilie
They are both pretty cool IMO.
It works now, many thanks. Big Smile Smilie
Ummm.... I accidentally deleted my avatar, now I'm trying to put it back onto the site and it's not working. Taz, help me!

EDIT: I click on the file in My Pictures, and a link to the picture should appear but it doesn't. Apparently, 'Photo could not be updated'.
Should I send it to Taz or Amarie via email?
I'm on now, and I can forward it right away. My e-mail is
You can also try uploading it again, it should work now.
OK, I've tried it again this morning, but it still doesn't seem to work, so I'll send it in an email to Amarie.
Sent the email. Hope you can fix it, Taz!
Hi, I could do it manually but I would prefer to fix the website. I have made some changes, can you try again for me please? Thank you
It works now. Big Smile Smilie
Thanks, Taz.

Hi, I'm new here. I can't get an avatar uploaded at all, mainly because I can't find one the right size. Found lots of lovely ones, but they're all 64x64 or 100x100!  Who can solve this, please?

I can resize the picture for you if you want.

Mail me for

Thanks, I'll do that. Look for a mail soon;

Sent the pics, Thorin

I got it. You can now remove your email address from your previous post if you wish. I will get back at you in 15 mins or so.

You should have them now.
