Just beginning to find my away around here. Anyone know how to upload an avatar? No matter what size I make it I can't get the system to accept it. And now the image is teeny weeny!

I'm not sure what the rules are now about avatars (they change from time to time). It used to be you couldn't have a custom avatar until you had made 50 posts. You can use one of the stock avatars until that time.

Maybe that's the case. How odd, though.

Welcome, Chukkie.

You can browse the tech talk section (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=81)for this, or contact a mod via pm. Like alleycat said, avatar rules change from time to time, but yeah, just use one of the default ones until you're able to upload your own.

Don't forget to read the Newbie's Guide (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=66315) and enjoy AW

I have passes for the pool on the roof, only $10

You can use a Photo system to make sure the picture is the correct size. If you don't have one on your computer, you can use Photobucket or Flickr

Greetings and welcome to the watercooler :welcome:

Take a wander around the various forums, there's lots to see and lots to learn, and even some fun threads too. Come along and pop on over to the Traditional Irish Pub (at the top of the Newbie forum) and say hi, there's plenty of friendly faces that you can chat with and lots of banter. There's also the Question of the Day threads at the top of the Newbie forum where you can answer random questions.

Don't forget to read the newbie guide (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=66315), and if you want to know what all the buttons mean check out this thread. (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=28185)

P.S. About the avatar. You can have a custom avatar straight away, however, it is small. When you reach 50 posts, you are allowed a bigger one.

Welcome to AW. Hope you enjoy your stay with us.
How do you like your popcorn?

If you go to the bottom of the page to the ‘forum jump’ you can scroll down and find all the areas of this place. Most of the SYW areas require the password of ….vista. A word to the wise, it would be a good idea to participate first in helping others before you think about posting your own work. After you have been around here for awhile, then post something of your own for help. Good luck.
