Uploading Avatar Thread
President Solvite
This will hopefully also be going in as an article. But in the meantime..

Avatars must be no larger than 100x100 in .gif or .jpeg format and have a filesize of no more than 1MB (though you may get away with a few more kilobytes before the site software chokes and spits your avatar out). You should also make sure your image has a short filename without spaces or odd characters, for instance "avon01.gif". Avatars and signatures should also be suitable for general viewing! Animated avatars and signatures are grudgingly tolerated but not recommended, and we reserve the right to ask you to change extremely bright, fast-moving or flashing avatars (and signatures) that may cause problems for people who are susceptible to migraines, epilepsy etc.

You must upload avatars to our server from a local source, e.g. your hard drive, a USB stick etc. Attempting to link an avatar from an URL (Photobucket, for example) will not work. Images used in signatures, however, must be linked rather than uploaded.

This is a screen shot from a Windows 7 PC (but it will be similar with MAC OS and Linux)

To upload your avatar to our server:

Log in to the site and select "Edit Site Profile".
Use the "browse" button in the avatar field to choose your avatar from a local source.


Upload your avatar!

Remember to hit the update profile at the bottom of the page. The selected image should appear as a preview.

As per the following image


If you are still having problems, do go through the following check-list as one of these items has always been the cause of problematic uploads!!!

1- Is your image 100x100 pixels in size (can be less!)?
2 - Is the filesize less than 1MB?
3 - When uploading are you loading from a local drive (ie Cdrive)?
4 - Have any spaces been removed from the filename?
5 - Have you tried truncating the filename to 8 characters?
6 - Check file extensions are of JPG, GIF OR PNG Type

If you have gone through all of these steps and still not having any luck then contact a member of the Site Staff Group who should be able to assist.
I've tried all that and I keep getting "prevented an unwanted file from uploading." Help please

I'm sorry that you are having trouble uploading your avatar It has been my experience that usually people 'miss' or ignore one of the listed steps..

But just in case can you email me the file (my email address is in my profile) for diagnosis.

Can you also advise what platform (PC / MAC / Android ) and what browser you are attempting the upload process with?

Can you try another image? And does that fail as well?
Thanks, I will email you. I'm using a laptop, with windows 7. I've tried resizing them, tried more than one image and they fail. Maybe I'm not doing the steps correctly, I'm a 5th grade ignorant when it comes to computers.

HI Panna

Hmm not sure what you are doing wrong. It worked for me for three of your images. The last one worked once I had re-saved it in Paint as PNG and shortened the name to 8 characters.

I have emailed 'fixed' versions back to you. Hopefully it will work now!

FWIW I am running Windows 7 with the latest Firefox Browser. (but other browsers should work just as well!)
