Uploading Avatars

If you are having a problem with the forums, try clicking on the "FAQ" link at the top of the page first. If that doesn't work, stop in here for help. Suggestions for site improvement are welcomed. For the love of Lennin, if you have a tech question about your rig, put it in "The Order of the Greasy Wrench" section below, not here.

Uploading Avatars

Howdy John,

How come I can't get my aviator to load on this site. I have tried to post the URL from my smugmug web page but it doesn't show up, what am I doing wrong? Please explain this in language a computer idiot can understand, thank you.

The image needs to be a max. size of 100 pixels x 100 pixels and not more than 30K. Ya need to shrink it if it is larger than that.

If ya need help with it, e-mail me your avatar, and I'll resize it and upload it for you.

This goes for anybody who needs an avatar resized. I'll be glad to do it for ya, just e-mail it to me and be sure to let me know your handle or username here. :D

Another tip. If it too high Kb as a JPG image, resave the same pic, as a GIF - GIF files are much smaller than the standard JPG, and for an avatar, work fine. ROEN's avatar in JPG form was 69 Kb - too large.. Saved it as a GIF and it shrank to about 8Kb.

Howdy John,

Mr. Cob, we aviators are a fickle bunch and it is often hard to determine the proper combination of incentives. Cool planes, girls and booze is a start - minoga bobki ($$) never hurts. :D

I'm sure this has made the rounds b4...
A FIGHTER PILOT as seen by:
Headquarters: A drunken, brawling, jeep-stealing, woman corrupting liar with a big watch, survival knife and an unauthorized hat.
His Commander: A fine speciman of a drunken, brawling, jeep stealing, woman-corrupting liar with a big watch, survival knife and unauthorized hat.
His wife/girlfriend: A stinking, gross, crude, foul-mouthed bum who arrives home every 2 or 3 months with a bag of dirty flight suits, a huge ugly watch, a knife, a filthy old hat and a hard-on.
Himself: A stout, handsome, highly trained, professional killer. A female idol who carries a finely honed survival knife, is covered by a finely aged hat and is always on time due to the reliability of his Rolex watch.
Department of Defense: An over-paid, over-rated tax burden who is indisposable since he will volunteer to go anywhere as long as he can drink, brawl, steal jeeps, corrupt women, lie, sing dirty songs and wear filthy flight suits, survival knives, Rolex watches and unauthorized hats. :lol:

Is there a step by step "Avatar Upload for Dummies" cheat sheet out there? I'm not having any luck at all.

Thanks

Yeah, Photobucket screwed us with new fees for hosting pics.

In the early days of the forums to keep storage and bandwidth costs down, the avatars were uploaded to a Photobucket account.

I went back and reloaded all of the oldtimers avatars, it should all be good now.

You can open any pic you have in "Paint" if Windows machine and then manually set the pixel size to 100x100. Then save and load it.
