You'll notice some members have little pictures next to every messages they write - these are called Avatars.

Up until now, it's been a bit of a pain to add these - you had to know how to resize a picture to fit, and if you didn't get it right, the system would reject it. I changed that today, adding some code so that the resizing is done automatically for you. So if you would like a picture next to your messages - be it of you, your bike, or whatever - you can do it now. Just go to this page: Edit Avatar

You will be able to upload an image from your computer, and it will be automatically resized and installed as your avatar image. You can delete or change it anytime you like by visiting that same page. Just click the Browse button, select the image you want to use, then click Submit. That's all there is to it!
I can't get it to work?? Keeps saying I can't load it?? Is the system down right now? I did it before no problem?? Thanks
