Avatars & Signatures
Your Avatar

You can edit your Avatar by visiting your profile settings by clicking on the "Profile" link in the top navigation bar. Click further on the tab "Avatar".


- Upload Avatar from your machine: If the picture you want as an avatar is on your PC, simply click on browse, and then select the image on your PC. Note that it's width must not exceed 150 pixels, it's height not 200 pixels. The filesize must be kept below 64kb. If you upload an image larger in filesize, you'll get an error-message. However, if you are uploading an image that exceeds the maximum dimensions, your picture will get resized automatically. This will in most cases destroy the pictures transparency and quality, so be sure to not exceed the limits.

- Upload Avatar from a URL: If you find the perfect image on a website, all you have to do is to copy the image's address, and then paste it into the form and save.
It's width can be no greater than 150 pixels, the height no greater than 200 pixels. Beware of images wich are under copyright.

- Link to off-site Avatar: The same as before. The only difference is that the image's height and width can be greater than 150*200 pixels. Beware of images wich are under copyright. It's also highly recommended to re-host all images on your own image-hosting service (ServImg or Photobucket for example), as you'd otherwise use the bandwith of the server that contains the original picture - this would be illegal!!

- Select Avatar from gallery: You can also choose an image from the forum gallery, if you don't want to browse the web to find one.

Your Signature
Signature settings are to be changed in your profile settings as well (in the top navigation bar) - just switch to the "Signature" tab there. The signature space is limited to 500 characters, this cannot be increased. You can use bbCode and HTML as well in your signature.


My Signature is not displayed, what should I do?

In general, there are two settings that could be the reason for your sig not to be displayed. The first one is that Admins deny the use of signatures on a global level.

The second option can be found in your personal profile settings. Go to "Profile >> Preferences" and enable the option "Always attach my signature". Your signature should now be attached to all posts you make, if you actually have content in it.

Note: On some forum versions, it's possible that you still won't see your signatures on posts you have already made, although you have activated all necessary options. There is no other way to change this than to edit those posts and mark the box "attach my signature to this post" and save.
