Thanks, I hope so. I just double checked the size and it is smaller than 100x100 so it should be okay.

Plus I uploaded the avatar a while ago (like 1 month), so I hope it does work.
It's working

Re: Looking for Avatar Help? Check here!

I've seen avatars around here which I think are larger than 80 x 80 pixels. So, I thought I'd ask to make sure the avatar size is still the same.

It says in the FAQ:

This must be no more than 20KB - 60k for animated gifs - and 80x80 pixels at maximum, and must not contain any copyrighted materials.

Is it 80 x 80? Or is the FAQ old?

Edit: Found the answer in this thread: http://www.trekbbs.com/threads/showf...=5&o=7&fpart=1

Sigh, the FAQ is old then.

Re: Looking for Avatar Help? Check here!

I'll make sure that info get's passed along to our Tech Adminn, Charles Capps. As you no doubt have already figured out, the avatar max was indeed increased to 100 x 100 pixels just this week.

Re: Looking for Avatar Help? Check here!

Every time I try to get my avatar I keep getting a "Improper Picture Type" message. The image I choose is 94 X 100 so it's small enough and it's well below the max KB. And it's jpeg. What am I doing wrong?

Re: Looking for Avatar Help? Check here!

Are you allowed to directly link to images on that web host?

Is your url correct? This is what you have for it at the moment:

http://img105.exe.cx/img105/6204/thearax.jpg

Or, try uploading it to a free account at Photobucket

Re: Looking for Avatar Help? Check here!

Lupine (nice nick!) appears to be using www.imageshack.us which is designed for remote linking.

For example. my av is at
http://img93.exs.cx/img93/2558/Stron...nkonly-av5.jpg
When I try connecting to
http://img105.exe.cx/img105/6204/thearax.jpg
I get "Could not locate remote server."
If I rename the exe to exs, it redirects me to imageshack. (no avatar at that exact address)

Maybe one of their servers went down, or there's a typo. If you signed up with them, see if there's a typo. If you didn't, reupload it to imageshack (it'll be a different address).

Re: Looking for Avatar Help? Check here!

Yup, my problems were all typos. Because of my DOS days I was writing down "exe" instead of "exs". I also found that I was using a lower case "t" instead of the upper case "T". Thanks for the help. My avatar's now up. What do you think?

Interesting. Though maybe make the grey darker so it's easier to see...him? And his floaty ball with the symbol inside.

Yeah I have to agree. Nice av but it could be darkened to make it more visible.
