We have enabled the option for users to upload and display avatars. An avatar is a little image that is displayed below your username and should / could be unique to your username.
There are a few rules you must follow in order to have your own avatar:
- You cannot use the avatars used by Steve, the admins or moderators or imply some sort of official status through your avatar.
- Avatars should not be offensive, racist, etc etc.
- It's maximum size is 100 x 100 pixels and about 60 Kb
- You must post your avatar in this thread before you upload it, so we can approve it
- As a result of the above, you may only upload avatars approved by us
- Failure to follow these rules may result in having this option revoked.
Basically, we will only disallow any avatars that are offensive or illegal in some way. Just post 'm here and wait for a reply from Mikey, me or any of the moderators.
You can then upload the avatar via your profile control panel. (They must be oploaded to our server, you can't link to a remotely hosted avatar).
There are many avatars to be found on line, but of course with a little creativity, you can make your own. So have a go at it
