Hi, I'm sure this has been asked before, but why doesn't my picture show up under my name? I have 33 rep points, I've posted 60-some times, so I should be qualified to have a picture... and I've tried logging out and back in again after I reached 50 posts. On my User CP, it shows that I have uploaded a picture (a photo of my two kitties) but it does not actually appear when I post. Is there something I should've done to make it appear?? Thanks...

Hmmm, somewhere in the bylaws here there's some clause about avatars that need to pass through all the mods. The chief criteria is, well, are they pretty kitties?

Profile pictures show up under your user profile. It's the avatar that shows up when you post. There should be a link to edit your Avatar there on your User Control Panel?

It's possible AW may have reached its allowable quota of kitty avitars. Perhaps you should consider a dog.http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/images/smilies/wink.gif

I've yet to see a pterodactyl avatar--bet it'd show up immediately.

(We're joshin', General. Let the mods figure it out; God knows how much they're paid to deal with these problems.)

They're cute enough to pass by this mod...

General Joy, your kitties show up in your user profile. If you want them to be your avatar, you've got to go into your User CP. In the sidebar to the left, you'll see the option to "Edit Avatar." Click on that. You'll see a bunch of generic avatars from which you can choose, or you can go down the page a bit to "custom avatar." Click on the "browse" button that's under the bar that says "upload avatar from your computer," find the pic, and double click. Then go down to the bottom of the page and click on "save changes." Note that there is a maximum size to the avatar image--you may have to fiddle with it to get it to fit.

I'm glad God knows, 'cause I sure don't...

Hey, you were able to afford that giant violin for your daughter. I looked it up--a Stradivarius Gigantica. I kidya not.

Got it now, thanks!

Of course they're pretty kitties, Rich... aren't all cats pretty? :D

Hey, not up to me. It's those Enron-like mods that make those decisions.
