    hkopinions answered a q by a new member, about uploading own avatar. what i read in the rules that posts must hit 500 before can upload own avatar, but hkopinions said with the new(neww??) forum the limits of posts is not necessary anymore.

    is this true?

    I think the reason for this was to reduce people from spamming to achieve the 500 post mark so they can have their own avatar

    Well I just lowered the limit to 200 posts just last week so the 500 posts rule does not apply anymore. I forgot to make an announcement about it last time when I modified it.

    I think Mr. Gilbert and Sullivan best capture my current mood :

    Oh joy, oh rapture unforeseen, (Much joy. Much rapture. Most unforeseen)
    The clouded sky is now serene, (Nothing clouds up a sky like a really large post requirement - especially when one of your posts can take up to four pages)
    The god of day -- the orb of love, (Probably referring to spcnet, though not so sure how he/she will take being referred to as an "orb")
    Has hung his ensign high above, (With this wonderous proclaimation of light!)
    The sky is all ablaze. (All my goals for a specialized avater - soon to be realized.)

    Thank you. I'll be here, well, I'll just be here.

    Well, I only need 33 more. So how do I choose my own avatar? Is there a requirement for size?

    You can find a picture or make your own and upload it from your computer.

    It has to be smaller than 72 x 72 pixels, and I believe a certain amount of kilobytes, but I don't remember that number.

    I have an animated picture I want to set as my avatar but everytime I go to microsoft photo editor and edit the picture, it becomes non-animated. So how can I edit a picture and keep it animated?

    Are you keeping the frames? And are you saving it as an animated gif as opposed to jpeg or just plain old gif?

    The file is saved as gif. I found the picture online so I don't have the frames. When it's on my disk it is still animated. Am I supposed to save it as animated gif? I tried to save it as animated gif earlier but the computer didn't give me an option to change it to animated.

    Why don't you PM me the link and I'll see what I can do with it. Remember to tell me what you want me to edit; size? color? whatnot.

    As you can see to my left, I now have an avatar.
    I'm actually quite proud of it. Except for the fact that my color palette is really messed up. Can someone explain why? I understand I only get 256 colors. But people can make theirs look decent while my colors just blend together.
    Thanks.

    No problem.

    AnalyticChick, colors? What colors? Are you talking about the colors for the words (which I see in black) or the colors of the picture portion?
