Hey Andrew, I can't upload an avatar :-(
« on: December 26, 2004, 02:09:21 PM »
Am I doing something wrong?  I tried last night to upload but when I hit the save changes button, the next page shows up only with two options, use one of the LSD avatars or link to another site's picture.  Am I missing something?

you might need to resize your image so it's 100 pixels x 100 pixels.

Yeah, resizing to 100x100 worked for me.

Okay - this has been fixed.  The site will now resize it for you so you don't have to worry.

While we're on the topic, I know a lot of people know this but for anyone curious... if you want the biggest avatar possible, you should use a square picture.  The site will reduce your picture to 100 pixels at it's largest dimension, but it will keep the proportions.  Thus a square picture will end up 100 by 100, whereas a rectangle will be 100 by something less than 100.

what happened to your special stars, andrew?  :(

and speaking of avatars, is your current one anything of note?  (like getting sworn in after passing the bar?)

Judah thinks a TDPookie coup d'tat has just taken place on LSD :D.  Haha, just kidding!  Thanks again Andrew & TD.

Hmm - I guess I lost my stars somewhere.  I guess I've been disstarred.  (sorry that was bad)

You're right about the picture - it's from last Friday when I was sworn in in Massachusetts.  I thought I needed something more wintry.  I'm going to try some sort of "four seasons of avatars" thing.
