howto:avatars

Users can set an avatar from an existing post; click "Set Avatar" on any Post page. Drag and resize the box on the larger image to select what will be shown as your avatar. Then click "Set Avatar" under the preview image on the right to finish. Internet Explorer does not work for setting avatars; try another browser instead.

Clicking someone's avatar brings you to the post it's from.

There is no avatar blacklisting. Keep the avatars reasonably clean; rating:q is probably fine. (You can use any image as source, though.)

~~It seems we have many users who are unable to perform this task correctly so here's a Picture Tutorial on how to create yourself an avatar, as well as locating the "Set Avatar" link.


1. While viewing the desired image, find the "Set Avatar" Link which is at the bottom of the "Options." I have circled it in red on the sample picture and once you find it click on it.
  • Once so, you will be on the Avatar Selection Interface where you can set your avatar.
2. Next, Click and drag your box to the desired area in which you want you avatar to occupy. Your avatar can be more than just squares, verticle or horizontal rectangles too. (Shift + Click to make a box.)
3. Click "Set Avatar" which is located at the top right of the image in the Avatar Selection Interface. (And do remember, setting an avatar in older versions of Internet Explorer will not work)
4. You're done, enjoy your avatar :)
