How do you download your avatar for this forum?
« on: November 11, 2009, 06:10:28 pm »

Hi All,
I've been trying for a while now to download my avatar to use with this forum.
I have been using the member profile, selecting "Download my own avatar" browsing to my avatar on my computer and selecting "change profile", but no joy.

Please note this is the same avatar that I've succussfully been using in other Linux forums, it's 80*60 pixels and only 1.7kb so it's not a size issue (at least I've not received any warning that the image is too big).

There is a section in the members profile where you can select "do not show users profile" this is un-checked.

Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong so that I may use my avatar.
