I am having trouble getting my own avatar pic to show up on my profile.
First I tried uploading several jpegs and the system told me they "exceeded the dimension limits". So I searched the board and found a place where it said there were dimension limits but did not say what they were!!!

So then I opened paint an resized my avatar down several times until I was able to upload the pic and have it "accepted" by the board's software.
Then I hit the "Apply" button and went to one of my posts which I had previously made. I refreshed the screen and it removed the previous avatar [selected from the board's meager few when I registered] but does not show my uploaded one.

How did all you guys/gals with the cool avatar pics do it??

Thanks DS. I was doing the things you said and had an upload accepted by the board software but still no pic.
However, since you provided the limits [unlike the FAQ or any of the board forums], I further reduced my pic size from 240 horizontal pixels to 143
et voila! I now have my own avatar!
Many thanks for letting me know the limits - wondering where you got them??

D'oh! I saw the 750 KB file size but it never twigged that the 145X145 was pixels.
I'm an old guy and I was doing this at about 2:00 AM - those are my excuses and I'm sticking to them!

It's because your country prices meat by the kilo and sells it by the pound...
