Before the transfer, I remember reading that we would have to reset our avatar images, but this type of forum (phpbb) does not allow avatar images. Am I missing something, or will there be no avatars?

Before people knock themselves out putting pics in their sig files, a heads up--we'll probably disable that feature (takes waaaay too long to load), and re-enable the avatars. :)

I need to get a good picture with my new camera to use for the avatar. I'll use this one for now.

Directions:
1. Upload your avatar to a photo hosting site. Your avatar file should not be larger than 6 KB or 80X80 pixels.

2. Come back to CyberHound and select Profile from the menu bar near the top of the screen.

3. Scroll down to the red bar that says Avatar control panel.

4. Enter the link to your off-site avatar (the link to your file at your photo-hosting site). You don't need img tags.

5. Click the Submit button at the bottom of the page.

Just a reminder Only one image can be displayed at a time, its width can be no greater than 80 pixels, the height no greater than 80 pixels, and the file size no more than 6 KB.

If you want to know the size of your avatar, right click on the picture, select properties, and the size will be listed next to dimensions.

No sigs unless/until we figure out how to disable images in sigs. Thank you in advance for your forbearance.

Sorry to repeat myself but most of the avatars are too large. Please delete them until you can figure out how to make them no more than 80 x 80 pixels.

Thank-you for your patience during this change over.

Photobucket

If anyone can give us help on how to reduce the size of our pics on photobucket (I reduced mine to 25% and it's still wayyyyyy too big) please let me know!
