    Hey, I been here for a while now, and I see all the user info with cool pictures and signatures by them and I want one toooo! Problem is, I try to assign a gif as my pic (115x150) and it doesn't take. Little help?

    I believe that gifs aren't allowed (not sure how some people have animated avatars, honestly)

    Otherwise, the picture is too large, pixel-wise. The limit is 100x110 140.

    Also check the filesize. .gifs can get large, and we have a small limit, 80kb.

    I just checked, gifs are allowed, but the one I want is 5 kb too big. [​IMG] Any way to shrink it a bit? The limit is 100 KB

    Remove a frame?

    ...Or you could host it somewhere else and hotlink it.

    Nope! I can't see it.

    Signature: go into your "my controls" (upper right hand), click "Edit Signature" under the Personal Profile bar on the left-hand menu. Proceed to edit it.

    I can only see my pic if I go to my profile or click the arrow next to my name, and then it's really small :|

    Ok, looking at Monkat's profile, I realize I've set up my personal photo, but how do I set up the one that is displayed in the forums?

    You set it as your personal pic (which shows up in your profile), not your avatar (which shows up on your posts).

    As for the signature, the option for that is lower in the list on the left-hand side.

    Your avatar and sig combined have to be under a certain filesize, and that sig alone far exceeds it, it's over 3 megs.

    Somebody gave his sig acid and put it in a rave.

    Then it went into rehab.
