You can now upload an image (.jpg only) sized 50x50 pixels to your profile.

At this time your picture will only appear on your profile page. In the future we'll plan to put this picture next to your posts, but that's not enabled yet.

Let me know if you have any problems uploading images.

If you're not sure how to re-size, edit, crop an image to be sized 50x50 pixels, this online site makes it relatively easy: http://www.resizr.com

Cool but just wondering, why couldn't it be added now to the bottom of our username instead of our profile?

I am waiting to see how much it gets abused. If most people upload a picture of themselves that could be useful. But if everyone uploads an obscene image, picture of someone else, or random stuff I don't see much use it placing that next to each post.

Ok, that is small. Probably a good idea though if any of us post a pic of ourselves...

LOL

Usually that is the point of an avatar. Pictures of random stuff and different graphics is an expression of personality. That is extremely useful on any forum.

Avatars would be a GREAT idea, if we can have more than just pics of ourself, and keep it safe for work.

And another thing, have you ever seen actual pics of members in their avatar pics on any forum? No

I have seen avatars in other forums.

There are a couple ways to implement those pics:
  1. embed image in every post
  2. only show when mouseover/hover user name
  3. only show when logged in
  4. only show if visitors select a box to display them

3 and 4 is what most other forums do. The users can set their personal settings to be able to view the avatars or not.

I'm going to go change all my avatars on the forums I'm on to a picture of myself just to prove this statement false lol.

Cool stuff Admin. Thanks

My main point was to prevent offensive pictures from being used as avatars.

I am not going to require everyone post a pic of themselves, although that could help create a more friendly environment.

Cool feature but one problem:

Size limit is WAY too small... most computers today have high resolution screens that make 50x50 so tiny you can barely see it.



Also I agree it should be shown next to posts.

50 X 50 is indeed extraordinarily tiny. This is just about useless.
