I've noticed that a few problems are occuring with the site's avatars and decided to create this thread for people who want to use them, but are having problems displaying them on their forum posts.

There are two ways you can define your avatar:

1) In your account settings (Your Account - Menu on the left), then selecting the "Your Info" icon

2) By selecting the "Profile" link located right above.

If you haven't had any problems, then either methods will work fine, but if you notice a red X in your avatars position, then please use the 2nd described method to ensure your avatar will be displayed correctly.

As always, if your still having problems, let our staff know and they will gladly assist you.

Tomahawk,

I'll take a look at the permissions for you. It is possible that the problem arised since the website relocation to our new hosting provider.

As Sahir noted, we certainly wouldn't want you without an avatar !
