Help please, cannot display avatar

I seem to be unable to figure out how to display an avatar for myself, the one that shows up in every post to the left with your username and such.

So, like, how do I do this?

Re: Help please, cannot display avatar

Hi Fuzzilla, sry you're encountering this issue.

To setup your avatar go to User control panel and choose the Edit Avatar option.
You can then choose to upload an avatar from your PC.
Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 90 by 90 pixels or 48.8 KB (whichever is smaller).

Hope that helps, otherwise repost with the details and hopefully we can resolve it quickly for u.

Re: Help please, cannot display avatar

I don't see a "Edit Avatar" option but do see "Edit Profile Picture" option so this is what I used. I made sure the .GIF file is 99x99 pixels and it's well under 48.8kb's.
This image shows up in my profile page but not in any of my posts.

Where do I find the Edit Avatar option?

I do allow the ads here except pop-ups, and allow the site cookies but block anything else. Basically abxzone.com should have full access to my browser/pc on a 1st party level.

Go into the User CP (user control panel) and you should see the "edit avatar" option under settings and options.

Under Settings and Options I have:

Edit Email & Password
Edit Options
Edit Ignore List

that's it.

In Edit Options/Thread Display Options/Visiable Post Elements I have Show Avatars, Show Signatures, Show Images enabled.

I used a .GIF for the Avatar, it is a static image.

Does the Avatar depend on a cookie by chance? As a rule I block most 3rd Party cookies.

I couldn't get the pic to show in the thread so I had to make a link. Dunno why the pic won't show.

Thanks for the pic. That's not right, we're currently investigating it.

Thanks.

Oops, FWIW,
WinXP Pro SP-3 fully patched
IE8 fully patched
AdBlock Pro (ABXZone is whitelisted) I have tried with ABP disabled just to be sure. That's all I can think of.

I am typing this from a newly installed COMODO Dragon browser and still have the same issue. I was hoping it would turn out to be an IE8 thing but I suppose this is not so.

HTH

FWIW I'm liking the Dragon browser.

More on this.
I'm currently logged on with my Palm Treo 800w (WimMo 6.1/IE Mobile). There is still no avatar option, everything else seems fine.
Please don't think I'm harassing y'all, simply trying to give you as much info as possible.
HTH

It used to be that you needed 100 posts and be registered for 90 days to have a custom avatar.

Thanks for the reply Rick_EE. Perhaps that is still the policy.

That may still be the case, trying to ascertain that now.
Hmmm, if so we will change it.

Re: Help please, cannot display avatar

Hi Fuzzilla, would you please check your control panel; the option to upload an avatar should be available for you now.
Sorry about the delay. Please post again if you encounter any further issue.
